So quite a bit has happened since my last update! Lets see if I can remember everything!
Dan and I went to Alton Towers at the end of May for a friend’s birthday. Alton Towers is a huge theme park about 4 hours away. It was an early morning, waking up at 4 am and arriving at the park around 9:30, but it was an amazing day! I was a bit terrified when I agreed to go because the last time I was on a roller coaster was when I was 14 riding the Wild Thing at Valley Fair, which proved to be enough roller coasters for me for the next 12 years. And Dan had never been on a roller coaster at all! Despite the crazy weather (we were rained on the majority of the day, hailed/thunder stormed a bit of the day, with a few minutes of beautiful sunshine in between), it was so much fun and can’t wait to go to another theme park now.
And then the next bank holiday weekend, we went to visit George and Pam in Brixham. The first day the weather cooperated and we had a picnic on the beach after a walk on the coastal path. I also got to go to my first car boot sale (Dan wasn’t so keen and opted to stay in bed), did find some bargainous wine glasses at 20p each!
The beginning of June also had a few hot and sunny days of which we took full advantage.
And in other news, I started a new job on Monday. I’m working at the same company as Dan now (luckily it’s a nice big building and we won’t be bumping into each other, don’t want to be *that* couple, hehe). Really sad to leave my old team, but it’s exciting and I’m already enjoying the training and just doing something new.
And something else that is exciting, 18 days until Dan and I fly to Minnesota!!!
