What A Good Chap…

DSC_3339

I get up and do all the things you need to in the house at a leasuriely pace.

DSC_3338

Before you know it time has moved by and its 11am. I’ve had the day off so I can do it all at a slow pace, instead of trying to do it all quick and flash.

DSC_3340

Bags packed I sqeeuze it all in. I consider taking my snowboarding gear and then realised it was never going to fit.

DSC_3343

Time to leave.

DSC_3342

Ah just one last item.

IMG_20170930_123624

I mossey on down the slow way, via Uttoxiter, Alton, Leek and Macclesfield. A lovely drive until we leave Maccesfield where the clouds darkend and the heavens opened up dramatically. I reach my destination.

DSC_3366

I empty the car, there is no one here. I go and get a sauage roll fromt he bakery, pick up my blue ruck sack and head back to the car.

DSC_3355

According to the world wide web, this place should be open at 3pm. It is 2:30pm. It is confirmed at reception and they advise I can wait upstairs in the viewing area. I have a packet of crisps out of the vending machine. Very nutrisous. At this point I’d already forgotten about the sauage roll.

DSC_3353

At 2:45pm they let me into the changing rooms.

DSC_3351

They advise I will need a pad lock. They lend me one.

DSC_3352

I’m locked in here. Crumbs what are the local residence actually like?

DSC_3350

And so once let in I have a swim on my own for a while. Two thers come and join me, and then leave me. Man I’m so unfit now, its unreal. I do my 60 lengths and then wobble on out and back to the changing rooms.

DSC_3367

Sometime later I’m back at the house. Still no one here.

DSC_3357

I unpack my stuff and get changed.

DSC_3358

ooh look at that.

DSC_3360

Alan has left me with a selection of beers, in case I get thirsty in the night. Waht A good Chap.

DSC_3363

I look through the garden window.

DSC_3369

Until they both appear. When I say both appear Alan dissapears. Apparently he is feeling unwell.

DSC_3368

With my boots on

DSC_3380

and my cowboy hat too

DSC_3379

we are ready. well me and Zoe are. Alan doesn’t seem to want to move from his bed.

DSC_3382

Sometime later after a very interesting and knwoledgable cab ride we are here.

DSC_3385

IMG_20170930_222706

We find him inside, already sampling the beer.

FB_IMG_1506769852427

The halls are full, its time to decide.

DSC_3387

Which beer should we drink then?

IMG_20170930_123429

It is busteling.

DSC_3393

It is noisy.

DSC_3397

Even better they turn on the fairy lights.

DSC_3411

This is cool.

DSC_3404

Alan wants food.

DSC_3401

He eats these slimey things.

DSC_3402

And still needs food.

DSC_3419

I don’t need that ype of food. What I need is beer.

DSC_3421

He agrees and we go insearch of a decent beer.

DSC_3420

It took me an awfully long time to find that decent beer.

DSC_3423

It took a lot of searching for.

DSC_3440

And at this point I still had not found it. Although from here,

DSC_3428

I had a good view.

DSC_3431

I’m thinking of doing this in my back garden.

DSC_3433

The fairy lights.

DSC_3434

Not a beer convention.

DSC_3441

I find a lot of IPA’s I don’t like. It’s like I’m not in an IPA mood.

DSC_3442

So I try a lager instead.

DSC_3446

It would appear Alan I’m not into lager tonight either!

DSC_3447

Yes Nack is thinking cider.

DSC_3450

He however doesn’t go through with it.

IMG_20170930_123645

Scott and Ireane appear. Charming as ever.

IMG_20170930_222551

With fun and frolicks

IMG_20170930_222625

We guzzel more down.

IMG_20170930_222648

IMG_20170930_123725

And with that time was called.

IMG_20170930_123706

Gulp I thought, I’d better get another and dissapeared with my last token.

DSC_3454

Back in the safety of the warm house. Waht ever it was that was going on or not, wasn’t going on, and that was I wasn’t in an IPA mood. Even this was Yuk!
