Mark Warner are on the lookout for their 2015 Family Ambassadors. They are choosing five families to test their multi award winning ski and sun family friendly holidays.
A tough gig …
So along with the rest of the blogosphere it is now my job to tell Mark Warner why I should be considered as a #markwarnermum and this is the bit I come unstuck. You see I would really, really love to be a Family Ambassador for Mark Warner and report back to you before, during, after and throughout the year but how do I convince them? How do I make them see what I feel in my heart?
When I started this blog way, way back in Jan 2010 I wrote a bucket list of places I’d like to go to in the world. It hasn’t changed much, Mexico is still high on the list as is the whole of South America.
In fact I don’t think there are many places I wouldn’t like to visit but when you have a family your travel requirements change, Puebla and Machu Picchu take the back burner and something for everyone is on the search list.
In order to enjoy a holiday each member of your tribe must be happy and that’s where Mark Warner excel.
Let’s take a look at each of our requirements….
Mum (AKA me)
Holiday time is relax for me. I switch off as much as possible. I take books on my Kindle, I take some needlework. I take my smartphone and iPad so I can share our moments with friends and family back home (if i can find WiFi). I take my camera and my camcorder and spend most of my time recording the fun moments. There is nothing nicer than sitting in cold December and making your next year’s calendar with the wonderful photos you have taken.
I love to watch dad kick back and relax and I love watching the girls fall asleep with smiles on their faces and dreams in their hearts after another great day.
I thought it would be good to hear what the girls had to say on the subject so I asked them
What does mummy like doing when we’re on holiday?
Read a book
Play on your iPad
You like watching us swimming.
Salad (I do eat more than salad!)
You like to make up our beds and clean our room whilst we play in the park (?)
Dad spends his entire year working in Canary Wharf in a skyscraper that looks out over London and the Olympic Park. He doesn’t get to enjoy that view much as he’s always working hard. He spends most of the year dreaming of where to take his family next.
Dad LOVES the sun, he lives for the beach and the sunshine, when he’s there he can be found digging massive complicated sandcastles with trenches that run water in from the sea. Dad loves to kayak, he takes the girls with him rowing from one side of the bay to the other. I know because I watch through my big sunglasses from my sun lounger.
Dad loves to swim. Dad always says that wherever we go there must be a swimming pool as he knows his girls are happiest in a pool jumping, diving, splashing, swimming and having lots of fun, so much fun they don’t get out until their lips are blue and their teeth are chattering.
What does daddy like doing when we’re on holiday?
Playing with us
Cooking burgers on the BBQ (King of the BBQ my hubby)
He likes to watch us sleeping (how do they know this? They should be sleeping)
Helping us make sandcastles
The twins are giggly 6 year old girls who enjoy each others company one moment and then fight like cat and dog the next. They are well behaved; sometimes shy, sometimes not. Sometimes pushing the limits making us raise our voices and throw them ‘the look’. Sometimes snuggling up to us and making our hearts melt.
They are our joy. They are our life and we are happy to do whatever it takes to make them happy.
They enjoy school and go to after-school clubs including swimming and ballet. They LOVE Strictly Come Dancing and always write the votes in their books to check on the judges. The latest club is Recorder club, this is notes A and B, just for you. Do enjoy :)
I asked the twins what they like doing when they are on holiday …
Going to the park
Playing with our dolls and teddies
Building sandcastles with really long trenches
Surfing on our bellyboards
What do you like to eat girls? Pasta, squirty cream, chocolate, sweets, strawberries (in that order!)
So Mark Warner, please take us into consideration, we’d really love to be your ambassadors with all our heart.
