So a rapidly planned trip to Alton Towers worked out great. I picked Gaz and Ana up at 8 at Meadowhall Park & Ride, we traveled to Alton Towers and then caught up with John there. I rode: Smiler (X2) Oblivion Rita Thirt13n Nemesis Runaway Mine Train Wicker Man (X3) Spinball Whizzer (x2)
In 5 years time we are going to look at this coming few weeks with either our face in our palms and a huge sigh, or with fear that we did the right thing and we have to keep the racists and gammons at bay to prevent it ever happening again. Sadly I think itContinue reading “Of Brexit”
Sartorial Thursday has me in black velvet. Seriously. I’ve had this suit since 1997 and I used to wear it when I hung around with Joe Lazarus. Since I’ve lost weight it’s now fitting me again!

When he said he was visiting the UK on a social visitContinue reading “That was the weekend that was… Part 2 – Entertaining Larry”

I did manage to post my outfit of the day photoContinue reading “Facebook is down…”
