My weekends consisted of drinking Friday and Saturday and suffering on Sunday. I got myself into a pattern and five weeks ago it all got too much.

    Alton Towers Trip

    Our trip to Alton Towers | Graeme’s 13th Birthday treat  Now that restrictions have settled down, we decided to plan a trip to Alton Towers for Graeme’s 13th birthday. I’ve not been to Alton Towers in years and thought I was due a visit as there were multiple new rollercoasters. As we live in Scotland, you can imagine it wasn’t going to be a ten-minute drive to get there. We decided to book a hotel and stay the night to break up the drive. I’ve documented the hotel, food, travel, and of course Alton Towers.  Travel  We decided the best way to travel down would be to drive. I think…
