I get up and do all the things you need to in the house at a leasuriely pace.
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.
Bags packed I sqeeuze it all in. I consider taking my snowboarding gear and then realised it was never going to fit.
Time to leave.
Ah just one last item.
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.
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.
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.
At 2:45pm they let me into the changing rooms.
They advise I will need a pad lock. They lend me one.
I’m locked in here. Crumbs what are the local residence actually like?
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.
Sometime later I’m back at the house. Still no one here.
I unpack my stuff and get changed.
ooh look at that.
Alan has left me with a selection of beers, in case I get thirsty in the night. Waht A good Chap.
I look through the garden window.
Until they both appear. When I say both appear Alan dissapears. Apparently he is feeling unwell.
With my boots on
and my cowboy hat too
we are ready. well me and Zoe are. Alan doesn’t seem to want to move from his bed.
Sometime later after a very interesting and knwoledgable cab ride we are here.
We find him inside, already sampling the beer.
The halls are full, its time to decide.
Which beer should we drink then?
It is busteling.
It is noisy.
Even better they turn on the fairy lights.
This is cool.
Alan wants food.
He eats these slimey things.
And still needs food.
I don’t need that ype of food. What I need is beer.
He agrees and we go insearch of a decent beer.
It took me an awfully long time to find that decent beer.
It took a lot of searching for.
And at this point I still had not found it. Although from here,
I had a good view.
I’m thinking of doing this in my back garden.
The fairy lights.
Not a beer convention.
I find a lot of IPA’s I don’t like. It’s like I’m not in an IPA mood.
So I try a lager instead.
It would appear Alan I’m not into lager tonight either!
Yes Nack is thinking cider.
He however doesn’t go through with it.
Scott and Ireane appear. Charming as ever.
With fun and frolicks
We guzzel more down.
And with that time was called.
Gulp I thought, I’d better get another and dissapeared with my last token.
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!
