Sometimes, we have good days. Other days we have bad ones. Recently I’ve been having a lot less bad and a lot more good. And today was certainly a good one.
I was working today at Moors Valley Country Park, where I spent a lot of time watching (and riding) the tiny little steam trains. I had some rather nice chats with various people which is a thing that is happening increasingly often to me. I also ended up discussing the best and worst ways to die. We figured dying in your sleep would be a good way though drowning is supposedly relaxing once your lungs are full of water- though we had doubts of where this idea came from. The worst way to die was being burnt alive. Not nice.
After a quick visit home for a change of clothes, it was down to Bournemouth for Mike’s birthday gathering. It was just me, Chris and Mike but we had a brilliant time. We went into Costa Coffee for some frapacinos which make us rather hyper and we then wandered around Bournemouth considering who was hot, doing sick one-liners and having a laugh. We eventually ended up in the arcade where Chris and Mike had a virtual race:
We all decided to have a go on a claw machine with a guaranteed prize every time. Me and Mike won immediately but Chris took several attempts. Here is the bizarre prize:
We also went on the simulator on the seafront and had a wild (virtual) ride through a test-crash dummy factory, which was actually pretty realistic and fairly moderately priced. It was a brilliant afternoon with my two best mates.
It’s been a pretty exciting day when it comes to this blog too, what with comments (you made me smile, mysterious person) and being mentioned in another blog (thanks Emily). After a comment on here and a discussion on a forum, I can now reveal the results of what people think the age boundaries should be for relationships with me, and 18-year old. Most people agreed too young is sick and suggested no younger than 15/16, which I agree with. My brother is 15 so going out with someone the same age as him would be a bit weird so I’m sticking to 16 for the lower boundary. And upwards most people said the middle twenties though I can’t really imagine going out with a girl considerably older than me. I shall bear all this in mind as I make my way in the world. Thanks for all your comments, and keep them coming, remember, they make me smile!
This remainder of this Summer is starting to look pretty good now what with Chris’s 18th BBQ, some clubbing, a visit to the Ellingham Show, Bournemouth Air Festival and a potential day out to Cardiff. I just hope that my results don’t ruin it!
