Our day out!

hi all

still without a cable for my camera.. have ordered one so hopefully that should be here this week.. Ive bought quite a bit as well over the last few weeks that I'm dying to take pics of!!

well today me the hubby and the two boys went to Alton Towers !!
hubby loves the place but Ive never been before as i HATE rides so Ive always thought it was a waste of time and money going!!
anyways we got a 2 for 1 ticket so the hubs said i had no choice!..
well i went wild broke all my inhibitions about fast rides and went on wait for it......... the squirrel nutty ride!!!
ooo i even did no hands!!

it was lovely watching my 2 yr old.. (hes nearly 3 now though that's mad!) .. really enjoying himself on the dragon roller coaster with daddy.. he is SO brave i think .. i think he must have gone on it about 5 times and still wanted more.. this time next year it will be the Nemesis he wants to go on!!

i was more excited about the fact we were using our picnic hamper with blue gingham lining!!
we had pizza, couscous, sausage rolls, chicken sandwiches a proper picnic!!!
it was sunny but sooo windy i was freezing in the end i had hubbys jacket on and he just had to wear his t shirt but needs must!
oh and celeb alert.. we kept bumping into John Terry the Chelsea and England footballer.. i have to say we were a little bit starstruck..but i tried to look most unimpressed especially when people were asking him for photos etc..

i have to say he is a lot taller and better looking in real life though!!!!

so now were home and shattered.. honestly you walk miles don't you... i had my leopard print flats on though so was comfy enough!!


  1. One day i will go on the biggest ride at alton tower ever, well i can think about it, wont happen co's i am perified of hights!
    I love the sound of the picnic..... Yummy.
    Shame you were cold though [poor hubby], good job he had a t-shirt else he would have froze... :-)

    Love and hugs honey. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  2. ooh stuff the rides - it must have been worth the trip for an eyeful of John Terry :)

  3. Ooh get you, you celeb spotter!
    I love Alton towers. We usually go for Mr Thrifty's birthday and have an utter ball.
