What’s the Story?/Magic Moments – Butlins

Skegness Beach

This photo is of my gorgeous twin boys and was taken yesterday on Skegness beach at Butlins Resort.

At the end of the summer last year I was chosen (still can’t believe it) to be Butlins Ambassador for the year 2013/14.

This weekend was our first official ‘Ambassador’ meeting. It was rather delayed to be honest because the poor organiser, James, from the social media team at Butlins, couldn’t organise a date that all the Ambassadors could make, he tried quite a few! But I think in the end he was never going to please everyone so he just decided to pluck out a date and hope for the best!

I was able to make all the previous dates but this one clashed with the Tots100 blog summit (typical) which I’d been lucky enough to bag a ticket for! Aargh!!!! I now had a dilemma. I so wanted to go to blog summit, I went to Britmums last year and loved it and wanted to experience the Tots one as I know they’re lots of fun too. But I didn’t want to miss our Ambassador meeting!

In the end it all came down to a personal choice of what I felt was more important to me.

I was thrilled to be chosen as a Butlins Ambassador and I knew that I would make every effort to be at our first meeting. It was being held at one of their resorts, not the one we have chosen to review which was a real bonus as I would get to sample not one, but two resorts over my Ambassador year.

Skegness is a fair distance from us though, up on the East Coast of Lincolnshire, a three hour drive but being able to take my family for the weekend meant we could make the most of it and we did!

We had a great time. The resort was fab (I will be writing a separate post about our weekend later this week), the meeting was interesting, and I got to spend some quality time with my family at the seaside, which we was brilliant!

The kids loved it and I cannot wait to take our 5 day break at the end of next month down in Bognor Regis. 🙂
