The thrill of the ride

Do you ever get that feeling when you are sitting on a roller coaster just before it starts and wonder why am I doing this! I had that feeling several times today at Thorpe Park. Whilst we had a brilliant day out each ride has me wondering am I really getting too old for this ­čśÇ

I think the danger is having an annual pass. We have had some use out of it and thankfully the year is now up. The saying you can have too much of a good thing is true! 



The Summer is passing too fast!

The first few weeks of the holidays have been strange as the YD has been away with her Dad and then with my parents to visit my brother and his family in Somerset. In between times we have visited Thorpe Park – success this time as she has reached the magic height requirement of 140cm (grown 1 cm since the last visit!). We did all the rides except Stealth and I probably screamed on them all more than anyone!

We also had a visit to the a Tower of London to see the poppy display – very moving and also have a wander inside. I don’t ever remember having visited before we saw the crown jewel the white tower, bloody tower and fusilier museum. You really need to spend a whole day as there is plenty to and see!


This weekend I tried to bake cookies with Almond Butter which was not a great success! I had an urge for a treat but the recipes I used just didn’t hit the spot. I have bought some xylitol a natural sugar (very pricy) to see if this will improve my cookie recipe!

Still plugging on with the healthy eating plan but my body is not playing ball and the weight loss has stopped. Food diary from today for examination with Paul next week feeling a bit fed up!
