Day Five.. 

Day five already!! So today we had a family breakfast on the balcony.. I had a chocolate dipped croissant not what I had asked for but it’s what my dad thought I’d like from the shop.. Daisy had a donut again not what I’d asked my dad for but never mind.. Lily also had the same as me. 

-Lily & Daisy at breakfast-

We creamed up and headed to the pool. 

Lily was driving my insane! Lily as much as I love her to pieces I could honestly leave her at home some days! Daisy was a bit tired not sure if her chronic lung disease is causing problems so she wanted to have a sleep. So I got out the pool to get her to sleep.. I left lily alone in the pool, now she is 8 years old and is a very good swimmer so I had no concerns that she was fine. The pool is also a private pool that we’ve literally had to ourselves all holiday! Anyway, she decides she’s going to play the ‘You love her more then me’ card! Which ok maybe I do treat Daisy a bit different she almost died several times and has ongoing health problems that make me appreciate my time spent with her a little differently but anyway.. lily starts huffing and puffing and complaining! So I take her out the pool and walk her back to the apartment. We discuss how she’s behaving like a spoilt brat and that me being outside the pool for ten minutes isn’t being unreasonable.. i should be ok to expect she can entertain herself for at least thirty minutes! But no, Lily disagrees. She’s hard work! She is very demanding. Very spoilt. Very all about me! Very not how I brought her up! So we have a chat, this is a regular thing for us and it’s done. ..Daisy never actually went to sleep in the end.

It’s now dinner time, so we all walk over to the shop to get a nice baguette and meat to eat. We stopped off in a few tat shops and all bought ankle bracelets. 

-Lunch or dinner-

We eat our dinner at the pool and then play in the pool.. I was the shark that was attacking the boats. The girls thought it was an ace game! 

Then it was time again to go get ready to go out! 


Tonight we went to the restaurant we had cocktails in a few nights ago that was on the front. I ordered a purple rain.. it was stunning! 

-Purple Rain-

Whilst I was enjoying my cocktail my dad rang my grandma back at home.. my grandad is currently in hospital and she’s by herself.. she told my dad about a guy knocking on her door to see if she wanted any gardening doing. She had said yes and let him in! He then tried charging her over £1000.. he was there a few hours!!!! She doesn’t have that kind of money, but gave him what she did have! My dad went crazy! My grandma got upset. My dads instinct was I’m coming home. Which is my dad all over, family is first and if someone isn’t doing well and they need support he’s the first there. I told him that he wasn’t to leave and he should ring his sister my auntie instead. Now she and my uncle are the complete opposite of my dad! They never help and never care unless it concerns them. I have argued with her in the past over how wrong she is to expect my dad to do everything.. so he rings her! Her reply was as expected.. I’m too busy!! Now she is with a man that has money, she works because she is bored at home twice a week which I believe is on a Thursday and a Friday .. she doesn’t have to! They don’t need the money. She goes to the gym every morning and has lunches with the girls. So how she can be too busy to go take care of her mum for the two weeks we’re away is beyond me!! My dad, and my mum, myself and sister all work full time jobs.. we all have taken unpaid leave from work to ensure she and my grandad are ok! Why the f*** can’t she! So back to the actual story.. my dad gets off the phone and is clearly upset. Firstly at the fact that he can’t do anything and secondly at the fact that my auntie is a selfish cow! I then suggest he rings our family friend who works for the police for some advice.. she suggests reporting it and offers to go see her! Yes a complete stranger to my grandma offers to go see her but my grandmas daughter is too busy for her!!… an hour or so passes and my dad recalls my grandma to suggest she goes to live in our house where we know she has our neighbours that would assist her completely and she’d be safe of course we are worried this guy is going to return.. but before he gets chance to my gran reveals my auntie has just been on the phone offering to come down tomorrow! Guess she felt guilty! My dad now feels a little more at ease, our police lady friend is calling by also tomorrow to check she is ok. 

We then went to the table for food!!! Me and my dad love sea food!! So we ordered a sea food sharer, it was nice but wasn’t amazing! 

Daisy was fast asleep by this time! After we had eaten.. and drank several more cocktails we headed home!

Day Three..

Had a lovely sleep in this morning! 

Then we went to the pool bar for breakfast, I had a ham and cheese toastie.. completely lost the plot in regards to mindful eating today.. 

Then we got our swim stuff on and went to the pool, the girls had fun playing and swimming. Lily was a little grumpy as usual think she could do with a friend that’s not her little sister! 

-Lily & Daisy enjoying an ice pop-

Why is it in England we have no sugar in things like this anymore! They tasted so good! Yet despite searching high and low for them in pretty much every English supermarket I’ve not been able to find any!  

After the pool we went to get changed for tea! 


We all are a little red tonight.. seems we may have required more sun cream! Oops! 

We went for a drink at the pool bar, where I discovered they sold Fanta lemon!! Which again tastes completely different abroad for some reason?! Then we wondered down towards the beach and stopped off in a gorgeous bar/restaurant the cocktails were stunning and the view was just as nice! 

Then we went to another restaurant for food, we had noticed they had a proper pizza oven and as we all love pizza and cam garauntee Daisy will actually eat it we went there. 

WOW!! This place was amazing! I got bruesetta for starters, then pizza for main obviously it was beautiful! Hands down the best pizza I’ve had! Daisy also got a pizza, which arrived shaped like a heart Daisy loved this touch! Lily choose ribs, from the adult menu.. they were huge! They both tucked in but couldn’t finish as their meals were simply enormous! I shared some sangria with Nats and then we left. 

We called at McDonalds like you do for a mcflurry on the way home. 


The girls were exhausted and fell straight to sleep! 

Day Two..

After the kids arguing about where their feet were going in the bed and messing about with the sheets they finally fell asleep! 

We had toast for breakfast on the balcony.

We went for a wonder around, found loads of bars and tat shops I have a tat shop weakness. We stopped off at a bar for a drink, before heading to the supermarket for some supplies! 

Daisy & Lynda (my mum)-

After we dropped of the shopping at the appartment we went to the pool bar for dinner! I ordered a salad as I’m trying not to go crazy and regain all the weight ive lost recently! 

Ham salad, yum!

When we had finished we all went pool inflatable shopping! Daisy choose a pink ring and a pool noodle, Lily choose a sofa lilo and I just got a normal lilo for myself! We then went to the pool. 

-Lily & Daisy-

We all had fun in the pool, the girls were jumping in and enjoying themselves on their inflatables.. Lily made a Spanish friend. She spoke English so they could communicate, I do find it so wrong and sad that children in Britain aren’t taught other languages from an early age! 

-Lily & Daisy at the pool-

After the pool it was time to go get showered and changed! Daisy fell asleep and woke up in a very very grumpy mood! We walked to the pool bar for a drink whilst we waited for Natalie (my sister) to get ready.. she always seems to take forever!! Daisy sulked and sat on my knee the entire time we were there. 

Then we had a walk down to the bar we had visited during the day, for tea! We ordered sangria to drink and I had squid.. again. Lily had a burger and Daisy ordered the only thing she wanted.. bread! 


The girls had pudding and we left. I think we will revisit this restaurant as the food was very nice! 

Back to the apartment for one last drink before bed. 

Day One..

Up at 3am to ensure we were all ready for the taxi picking us up at 4.. That hour went so fast! I ended up running out the house forgetting my purse! 

Luckily I realised and could nip back in for it! 

We arrived at the airport, straight to check in! Failed the self serve so ended up waiting in line to do it the old fashioned way! 

Then we went to Witherspoons for breakfast! It was so busy!! 
2 slices of toast and 1 bottle of prosecco later I was a little on my way to bring drunk! I didn’t drink the entire bottle I shared it with my sister! 

-Pre Flight Drinks-


As my toast arrived we were called for boarding an hour before we were due to take of so we didn’t rush! The girls got a magazine and I bought some food! Then we went to gate, was literally the last on! Oops!

-Lily & Daisy ready to board!-

 

Took my special drops rescue 

As the food and drink came round I thought as I was a little anxious and well I was already half cut I’d get myself 2 bottles of cava.. why not! 

-Tenerife.. at least I think-

We arrived on time, collected the bags and went to the transport bus.. where we waited for over an hour!! This is why when I book holidays I book private transport. My mum booked our holiday as I’m away with the parents. 

We then arrived at the apartment and unpacked. The parents went shopping whilst I got the girls ready for our first trip to the pool.  

The pool is lovely, nice size and as the pool runs from one end to the other it seems fairly quiet, we shall see tomorrow if that is actually the case! 

-Lily & Daisy at the pool-


After the girls had played and we’d had a drink we decided to head back to get ready for going out for tea!

-Lily & Daisy-

We walked down to the front and choose a bar overlooking the sea for a drink. We then walked further along until we came across a tapas bar. The man serving us made a fuss of Daisy! We ordered tapas and the kids ordered kids meals. The food was nice, Daisy ate her entire pizza which was huge! Daisy doesn’t usually eat as she’s very hit and miss when it comes to food but tonight she well and turkey tucked in! 


After the meal we walked back to the apartment and enjoyed a drink on the balcony. 

Our first day has been lovely! Looking forward to a full day around the pool tomorrow!!
