Today I went with the youth group to an amusement park in Blackpool called Pleasure Beach.
Most freezing day of my life.
I rode about a total of 5 rides (which made me even colder) and spent the majority of the time holed up in Burger King (one of the only indoor restaurants... Considering the weather that England tends to have, this made no sense to me) with a friend trying to stay warm.
I brought my camera, but I only took a few photos. It was too cold to even do that (I really just can't function very well/at all when I'm cold).
And the photos I did take, were of a ride I didn't even go on.
It was Alice and Wonderland themed though, so I think that's understandable.
Needless to say I was happy to head home at the end of the day.
However, it was fun getting to hang out with a few of the girls on the way there and back and get to know them better.
And learn some new words! I have quite the running list now...
Braid = Plait
Fries = Chips
Nappy = Diaper
Motorway = Highway
Chips = Crisps
Lady bug = Lady bird
Bathroom = Toilet
Line = Cue (Que? Not sure how to spell it...)
Sketchy = Dodgy
Cookie = Biscuit
Trash = Rubbish
High Class = Posh
Calendar = Diary
Kissing = Snogging
Cuddling = Canoodling
Tired = Knackered
Vacation = Holiday
Pleased = Chuffed
And instead of a Bachelorette or Bachelor party it's called a Hen or Stag party
The highlight of the day was buying train tickets to Scotland to visit my friend Jackie!
This has been in the works for a few days, and it was almost looking like it wasn't going to work out. But at the last minute it did and I am over the moon excited!!
I'll be taking a train there and I have to admit I'm a bit nervous. I've never traveled in a foreign country completely alone so hopefully I won't get lost because I have quite a few transfers to juggle.
So prayers for that would be lovely!
Off to bed, it's been a long (cold) day.
