Blackpool Pleasure Beach
I am enjoying the calm of our lovely new office and an ILLY coffee from our new coffee machine ( ILLY coffee is the best- and boy have I sampled most types!). Later today I am taking teenager and his pal D to Blackpool Pleasure Beach. They are now old enough to be dropped off and left to roam on their own ( thankfully), leaving mum and I to have a peaceful lunch in Lytham St Anne's where there are lots of lovely coffee shops and places for lunch.
I have nothing against Blackpool as such, but the attractions it offers don't really do much for me I am afraid ( they did once- when I was a kid!!).
I can't even the lovely fish and chips these days which is heartbreaking ( they are a real weakness of mine if they are done well!!).
Last time I took the lads to Blackpool D lost his mobile on some roller coaster despite REPEATED pleas for both of them to keep them in their zipped up coats. Sigh. I like them both to have phones in case they need me ( they are both huge, and why would they, but you never know.... the gnome sized mum may come in handy for something....). So no doubt the lecture will start again on the motorway about taking care and zipping up and so forth.
Wish me luck! And let's hope for some sunshine ( none around at the moment).
