Great Yarmouth!

Got back from Yarmouth last night after an exhausting journey, but having had a great time. The first train journey took 6 hours due to flooding on the tracks so we didn’t get in until 7. Had a good first night with me and Josh cooking Pizza with a chocolate pudding and then we went out for a midnight walk along the beach.

The second day was a bit cloudy, but we walked down the beach and went on some of the amusements. Had fish and chips on the pier and went in some of the tacky shops! That used up most of the day. Katie and Jenny cooked tea that evening and then we had a party with some other people staying who had also just finished their GCSEs.

On Wednesday we went down to the beach and it was very sunny. We went in the sea and on Josh’s inflatable whale which I bought him for his birthday. Found this lovely cafe on the seafront and bought a toasted teacake, soup and a bread roll for £3 – great value. Got all dressed up and went out for a lovely curry in the evening.

On the final morning we had sausages for breakfast and went for a last walk along the beach, whilst getting ice cream. Had to rush to get the train, but made it in time. Journey took four hours so was still an hour slow, but not too bad. Had a great time and I’ll post some pictures when I get them in a bit.

Rose’s Race for life has been delayed until July due to rain – so there’s still time to sponsor her if you haven’t yet! Hope everyone’s ok. Bye

Past couple of days

Had a good couple of days recently, although the weather hasn’t been very good. Spent Friday in town with friends – dashing into random shops when the heavens opened. It was my friends party last night and he was quite worried because it was going to be outside and it had been raining. Got luck though and the rain stopped at about 6 and then didn’t start up again till this morning, so it was a good party.

Haven’t really done much this morning. Spent the morning recovering at my friends house then played badminton this afternoon. Had some tasty lamb chops for tea and I’ve just got in from my run around the river. (Second one in 3 days – that’s dedication for me!) Dad’s downstairs having his birthday meal with Helen, Josh and Sharon. John cooked the meal and it looks delicious. I’ll be off now and I’ll try and write again before I go away on Monday.

Dad’s birthday

Dad’s birthday yesterday. Got a nice selection of presents. A hand made pillow cover from Rose (made by Rose), a hand cooked meal from John, and I got him a bag for his bike! I think I get most marks for effort! G & G gave him some money because he keeps on thinking on getting a new bike and can’t decide if it’s worth it. Went out for a lovely meal at La Piazza. Good as Usual.

Today I’ve spent the day in Leeds with friends and bought some new clothes for the hols. Looking forward to Greece very much. Everyone’s out at the moment seeing John’s play that he has done with his theatre group. Got a busy week ahead, and I’m going away with friends next week to Great Yarmouth! Should be great. Anyway I’m off out now, so bye.

Dad turns 39!!!

Believe it or not dad is now 39 which considering I’m 16 still makes him pretty young, but still he’s almost 40! We’re off out for a meal tomorrow night at La Piazza one of the best Italian’s in York – defiantly our favourite. I cooked today for the first time in about a year. I made mussels in a white wine sauce, with hand cut chips. It was delicious. Not at school, but still being incredibly busy – didn’t manage to get everything done today; probably because most of days start at about half eleven! Anyway I’ll be off because I have to get up tomorrow to give dad his present before J & R leave for school – so up at half 7!!!!
