Help I need ideas of what I can do in the evening when the crappy entertainment is on and the dc are off trying to win the hulu hoop competition and I'm sat on the table by myself surrounded with families.

Also what do you do when it's just you and the dc on holiday by yourselves? Last year I took dc by myself (usually go with friends) and got really lonely having no one to talk to apart from dc.

Worrying slightly now. I don't usually get lonely as work is quite sociable and we're out the house most nights with our hobby we share. There won't be any Internet apart from the club house either. I especially booked a place with crap signal to be able to enjoy the dc. Wtf was I thinking.

They're 8 and 10. I wish I could have afforded an all inclusive pool holiday abroad. I might book one for this time next year and start paying it off now.

We're staying in a caravan right on the beach which is apparently good for surfing. We've got body boards and wetsuits plus we're right by dartmoor. The dc will have fun not really sure why I'm having a wobble about being alone for the week.

Look up single with kids holidays on the Internet. They're really good, kids have friends to play with and you will have adult company. All budgets from uk camping to more expensive all in holidays in Majorca ring them up if you want more guidance; they're very helpful.

I feel your pain ! After an awful holiday with just me and DD where she was ill and I couldn't leave her to get help, I booked a holiday with Small Families. Have a google . I know it doesn't help you now though.
