Postcards from The Van Day 7
Bit of a tetchy start to the day at The Van. After being woken up by the thunderstorm I was hopeful it would clear the air. Turned out that was just wishful thinking. It seemed to be as hot as it did yesterday and the fact that I had to put the oven on and the gas ring for Thomas' sausage and chips didn't help with heating matters.
Early afternoon we had a drive to Cleveleys where it finally started to cool down a little bit and with the added bonus of a breeze my temperament thermostat soon returned to normal.
Amy and Thomas wanted to go on some rides this evening so we went to the South Pier in Blackpool. This was a first for Thomas who's never asked to go on a rides like these before.
I didn't think he'd go ahead with it but with Big Sis encouraging him all the way and more than happy to go on with him he chose The Sizzler (a spinning around ride) and the log flume (twice). He'd actually psyched himself up for a roller coaster but there wasn't one.
We've certainly seen a different side to him while we've been here.
Wish you were here :) xx
