Easter Holiday – Cheltenham

For the Easter weekend Zoƫ, Pauly and I went on holiday, we stayed near Gloucester. On our way we went to Cheltenham. We had posh afternoon tea for our lunch. Lots of tasty sandwiches and scones.

When we were walking around the town I spotted a gold post box! I have enjoyed finding these since the London 2012 Olympics.

We stayed at Bowden Hall Mercure Hotel. It was very nice and had lovely grounds, we even saw ducks and rabbits!

Blackpool

Ater our disappointment at Carlisle United loosing 6-1 on Saturday we went to Blackpool. We considered going to the Pleasure Beach, but it was quite expensive and was only open for another hour once we got there.

Instead we had a nice walk along the sea front towards Blackpool Tower.

Once we had built up a good appetite we went for fish and chips.

Unfortunately Carlisle lost 6-1, so it wasn’t the best day!

Mexican Food

On Friday night we accidentally had mexican takeaway with Amy and Barney. The food was good, I ate way too much!

I also had fun looking at Amy’s shelves of little things. It is like a gallery of stuff just the right size for me!
