We all seemed to have had a good nights sleep and my back remained surprisingly good. Usually if I am a couple of days away from my own bed, I end up with a lot of back pain. Whether that's the GOPO at work, or just being fortunate to have really good beds so far on our road trip, I'm not sure.
Breakfast was great with a selection of cooked options available to order as well as a cold selection of the usual cereals, yogurts, fruit salad, muffins and pastries. A cooked breakfast set us up for the day and we've managed to miss the need to stop for lunch.
The boys discovered more indoor playrooms, this time geared towards their age rather than Miss T. There's a room with 2 Wii's in it and table football, another room with table tennis and more games and a mini cinema room with a comfy sofa and big cushions. I believe they show a kids film at 8.30 each evening.
At 10am we met at reception to go and feed the chickens.

Back at Fowey hall, Miss T has a nap (having missed her naps for several days!) whilst daddy and the boys go for a swim. Shhh... don't tell miss T as she won't be pleased to have missed out on swimming.
The plan is for the kids to have high tea at 5pm so we can all watch the red arrows together. Cookies and milk is from 6.30 onwards, then we'll put Miss T to bed.
With a baby listening service available we're hoping to have a grown up meal whilst the boys play on the Wii's, in the games room, or watch a film. Fingers crossed that all works out ok.
It's nearly 11pm and I am shattered. The meal worked out brilliantly with the baby listening and the boys entertaining themselves with all the fab facilities.
Then we headed outdoors for the Red Arrows.
we were at Noma. We were sat on a picnic rug in front of Fowey Hall and the Red Arrows made their epic entrance by flying low with all their smoke colours right over Fowey Hall and right over our heads with their unmistakable roar. Unprepared for the moment, we didn't get a photo of what would have been a perfect picture.
Miss T sat with me on the picnic rug and enjoyed it so much. She kept saying 'pink clouds' as the trails of red smoke faded to pink.
She also hugged me and said 'love you mummy' which is quite rare for her to say as she usually says 'love just daddy'. Each time the red arrows roared overhead she said 'awesome' or 'love it'. At the end she asked 'again?' So I guess we'll have to find an opportunity to see them again sometime.
