This is the time of year when we have lots of birthdays. We had Simon’s 18th last week (unfortunately he had an A-level Maths paper) and it will be Harry’s 14th tomorrow. We all went out for a curry last night and had a fun, but tiring, day at Thorpe Park today. Matt started out being cautious on the rides because of his injuries but he soon seemed to forget any discomfort and go for it.
I seem to be less inclined to go on all the rides. This is not through nervousness but more about getting less enjoyment out of it. Where is the fun in getting drenched on a ride when it is a cold, cloudy day? I am obviously getting old!
The kids were amused when I had a strop at the car parking attendants. They had introduced a parking charge without properly notifying customers…..why didn’t they tell us as we bought our entry tickets? Had to go back to the ticket booth to pay for a ticket……not good customer service!
