This is a question Family Holidays

Back in the 80s when my Dad got made redundant (hello Dad!), he spent all the redundancy money on one of those big motor caravans.

Us kids loved it, apart from when my sister threw up on my sleeping bag, but looking back I'm not so sure my mum did. There was a certain tension every time the big van was even mentioned, let alone driven around France for weeks on end with her still having to cook and do all the washing.

What went wrong, what went right, and how did you survive the shame of having your family with you as a teenager?

My grandparents used to have a caravan in the Lake District when I was growing up. I used to love going into Morecambe as there was crazy golf (I believe Noel Edmunds built a Crinkly Bottom theme park on it years later).

At my first attempt my Dad was trying to show me how to line up the shot and tap the ball the 12 foot or so it needed. I decided that having seen golf on the TV before, I knew what I was doing and drew the club back for a full swing.

Unfortunately, my Dad was standing behind me and got whacked full in the face by the golf club. He was not happy.
