damp amusements

We had a fantastic day out at Gulliver's Land - it started out a little ominously, with almost unremitting rain from long before we arrived. The main upshot of this (apart from the inevitable dampness) was that hardly anybody bothered to turn up, so that when the sun came out, a little before lunchtime, there were still no queues for the rides - which we enjoyed with impunity.

Here's a miniphoto of Beth and Christopher as we rode on the "Chair-o-planes":

I was most impressed with Christopher's enthusiasm for the rollercoasters and more 'daring' rides - he loves the outdoors, and as long as it doesn't make too much noise, the exhileration was often evident. He also enjoyed clambering around in the play areas - especially climbing some rope-ladder rigging to a 'crows-nest' about twelve feet up.

To finish off his 'birthday treat' day, we popped to Asda for some "Create Your Own" pizza, and sat down to watch some Rough Science and the erstwhile Scrapheap Challenge (which always inspires some whacky invention concept from Christopher!) on Discovery Science before he went to bed.

Back to work tomorrow, then. Before I go, though, a couple of (now classic?) online distractions:
