Spice World

DSC_4493

I wake up, like a thought, late. I look over and switch on the phone, 25% and then a message comes up. I get showered and head down stairs for a cup of tea. Matt give me a plant, in full bloom.

DSC_4496

We head to the city center, have a faf with the pay and display machine as I used all my coins in the curry house last night and end up downloading a pay and display app. But we are here. After a tour of the city. How close to here we didn’t quiet realise but we were in fact here. We had parked right next to where we were mean to be.

Let the socialism begin, although in reality it had already begun.

IMG_20180930_200348

Looks yummy.

IMG_20180930_200420

A few things to eat other than cake

IMG_20180930_200334

and a bit of chill

IMG_20180930_200312

but all was happy. Even Matt P after he gave me the where have you been. But then I always knew I wouldn’t be getting up until late.

DSC_4499

I hit the beer, but this was no ordinary beer.

DSC_4501

No this was real beer, not alcoholic ginger beer.

DSC_4502

But non chemical ginger beer, it was gorgeous.

DSC_4497

and while the others went Zombie hunting, I took the cake back to Zoe’s, and while tempted I didn’t sneak a piece.

DSC_4505

I drove the back way home, slowly, enjoying the journey, the good weather, eventually back I got the black out.

DSC_4506

I’ll make them shine, I’ll make them shine once more.

DSC_4509

and with that I found a spot. A sunny spot

DSC_4507

Hopefully it will be at home here.

DSC_4511

I say hello to the cat. I smile

Q Wood Timing?

DSC_4357

I get up early, look outside and head that way.

DSC_4354

While it is sunny, its a bit chilly. Did that matter? Nope

DSC_4355

Even the bamboo down the drive is starting to mature at last.

DSC_4356

Looks nice.

DSC_4353

Just like the rear garden.

DSC_4350

I have a wander and then

DSC_4351

sit down and relax to my breakfast. No bacon sandwich this morning.

DSC_4361

Well I guess no pumpkins this year, just pumpkin flowers.

DSC_4362

I look back on how the drive is doing and then

DSC_4364

set off north into the countryside, windows down heaters on, and no this isn’t the mx5.

DSC_4365

I park up and

DSC_4366

join the first queue, that being for the mono rail.

DSC_4370

The monorail queue was huge, but I had time to take it easy, I was after all the first here.

DSC_4372

I enjoy the view and

DSC_4373

a cup of tea next to the frogs.

DSC_4374

I don’t know what they eat, but what ever it is they have had plenty of it.

DSC_4376

The others turn up and off we go. Ride one is the Nemesis.

DSC_4380

And while good and atmospheric due to the scenery, the one at Blackpool does rock compared to this one.

DSC_4383

I despair to the toilet after that twist and shout, and whilst doing so the other s head for the blade.

IMG_20180930_200205

Or to you and me the blade.

DSC_4390

Year I would have wet myself my bladder was that full from the cup of tea I’d had.

DSC_4394

But it looked fun for them.

IMG_20180930_200215

Then onto the shooting competition. And year I did well, but my finger was a tad tired after.

DSC_4396

We walk we talk.

IMG_20180930_200030

We group together for the ride of the year.

DSC_4401

Nack I’m telling you its made of wood.

DSC_4398

And so I start looking for the matches.

DSC_4403

Nice structure though.

DSC_4405

The queue is long and queue is slow.

DSC_4406

So we look some more

DSC_4409

and more.

IMG_20180930_200140

Nack of course its made of wood. Alan I’m telling you I feel cheated.

DSC_4413

Look that is wood.

DSC_4414

That is not wood mate.

IMG_20180930_200228

The fence is made of wood, but here and there they have put in steel.

DSC_4418

That's it I want a refund.

DSC_4419

Actually its a good ride, a bit short but a good ride.

DSC_4420

All this excitement means time flies by, and its lunch time, we stop a while.

DSC_4424

Before heading for the queue of the day. If the queue for the Wicker Man was not long enough for you then this one for the smiler was, mainly as they kept letting on loads of fast pass people on, meaning the normal queue hardly moved. I get why, this is the best ride in the park. Hell if I had a fast pass I would be on this and one this and on this and well on this.

DSC_4433

Deadmanjones, I’m not coming with you, I’m off.

DSC_4463

I don’t enjoy it, so I did from a distance,

DSC_4465

Afterall I wanted to see if I could hear anyone scream as loudly as me.

DSC_4458

There they are.

DSC_4460

There they go, and nope I scream the loudest.

DSC_4469

We spilt up to ride on different things for the last ride. I go to Rita, we are pretty much the last to get on it before closing time, sad as it is but that's it.

DSC_4474

And while the others are not here, I’m not risking it

DSC_4477

I catch the monorail before it closes. I don’t want a repeat walk like wit the Greenies.

DSC_4476

And as the sun sets

DSC_4479

I know the car is somewhere over here.

DSC_4482

Ah there it is. The old but gold dream machine.

IMG_20180930_200112

Many hours latter we are in the Kermit.

DSC_4485

The best thing about this place is.

DSC_4488

It came in a balti dish without asking.

DSC_4484

Yeah man I’m happy.

DSC_4489

And then a fire was lit, a few beers opened and the night wound down to 2am……I go for walk and guess what, who's that getting out of a BMW then!
