Monday 4th December

Once everyone had arrived and unpacked we sat down for a cup of tea and mince pies, followed later by a buffet meal. We are staying at The Barn, in the Cotswolds near to Cirencester. Glynis and Pauline said they really enjoyed their mince pies.
Polar Bear Band Tuesday 5th December

After breakfast we went to the nearby market town of Cirencester. This was where we bought our 'secret Santa' gifts. Then on to a large garden centre for our lunch in their cafe. They had a life like moving Christmas display of a polo bear band. We then went back to our accommodation and listened to Christmas carols, as we are treating today as Christmas eve! We decorated a chocolate log, ate our meal and then had fun singing Christmas songs on the karaoke.
Wednesday 6th December

We are treating today as Christmas day on our holiday! We woke to find Santa had put stockings, with fruit and chocolate, on our door handles. We visited the town of Fairford and saw Santa's reindeer. Then we had a lovely Christmas dinner, followed by a visitor! It was Santa, he came with a present and our 'secret santa' gifts. We watched Christmas movies and played games.
skittles Thursday 7th December

We treated today as Boxing day. After breakfast we packed our bags ready for tomorrow. Then we had lunch and went to the town of Swindon to see the Theatre play of Peter Pan. Sarah laughed all the way through, Ken danced to the music. Later, we went to The Raven pub in the village of Kemble for our evening meal. We all took turns to play skittles.
Friday 8th December

We all had breakfast before going home. Sarah said it was a brilliant whirlwind. Glynis said the Peter Pan pantomime was brilliant with Peter Pan flying through the air. Pauline loved the Christmas dinner and Beverley enjoyed seeing the actor who plays Ian Beale in Eastenders (he was in the panto).
