I was meant to post this yesterday but things have been busy, as usual. The other day in work I whacked my head really hard against something and I think I had/have concussion! If not I'm pretty dizzy anyway and my sleeping pattern is messed up. I got home from work that night about 4am and woke up the next day at 4:15pm!! I had work by 5 and it takes me half an hour to drive to work, so I was in a rush yesterday and yeah, now my sleeping pattern is messed up as I've just woken up from a nap! Oh well, onto the post now!
I went up to London again recently, this time to visit my friend. When we got there we went for a walk and did some sightseeing as another friend I came up with had only been to London once years ago. It was really nice and warm and light for the time of night and then we had some drinks in the pub before getting a pizza and going home to watch a film, and meeting some of my friends housemates.
The next day we woke up super early (for me!) and went to Thorpe Park with two of my friends housemates. We had to catch two tube trains, a train and a shuttle bus to get there but it was worth it! I've never been to Thorpe Park before so was excited, but I stupidly wore a maxi skirt thinking I'd be okay! I wore it thinking it would dry faster than the jeans I'd brought if we went on any water rides (which I did, except for the big splash one) but then when jumping off one ride at the end my skirt got caught and I fell and bashed my knee and hands. It probably was hilarious to look at judging by how much the girl who worked there was laughing, but she directed me to first aid when I showed her I was bleeding. They were only small cuts but stung and wouldn't stop bleeding and I had a nice chat with the first aider who had a friend in Swansea Uni. The rest of the day was fun though, and we went on loads of rides loads of times since it was actually really quiet considering it was the last day of half term and only rained a little bit. We weren't complaining though since the longest we had to queue was half an hour, and on average about ten minutes.
We'd been there from about 11:30 to closing time at 6 so were exhausted travelling back. One guy actually fell asleep on the tube on the way home but the boys both went straight to the pub while we girls went home to shower thanks to the rain and water rides! We ordered pizza again! And waited for another friend who was coming down from Aberdeen for the Summer Holidays then we went to the pub too. I tried a strawberry beer for the first time which was amazing, and I don't like beer so it was a nice change. Needless to stay when we got in we all fell asleep straight away ready to catch the train back home the next morning.
I'm usually running late or miss trains when I'm coming home, and we thought we would miss the train (something wrong with the tube again!) but we actually made it with ten minutes to spare, which never happens! Note to self, leave extra time in case of delays! We got back home a couple of hours later where I promptly fell asleep again. It was a really fun trip and I sort of wish I'd had the chance to shop but my bank account is glad I didn't, and we had a fun day in Thrope Parl anyway with 2 for 1 vouchers and hopefully next time I go to London, I might go see all the Harry Potter sets everyone's talking about!
