We made it to the top (well almost the top) of the tower and did the 'Walk of Faith'. This was about 10am and I couldn't believe the number of people that were out and about. We even had to queue for about 30 mins to get the top. I suppose it was 'cos the illuminations were on too.
Foto is later on in the day, prob about nearing 5pm, 2 very tired boys. They weren't really that grumpy, honest, they were play acting lol, didn't like being behind bars!!
Have to say I wasn't impressed at all by the lights! Wasn't worth taking a trip just for that. Lucky for us, we were visting and staying with some family there so there was plenty of craic :) At least I can say, and the boys can say, they've seen them. We did have a very enjoyable trip with lots of new experiences.
Oh I feel a song and line dance coming one ......... Penny Arcade lol, off we go, yeeehaaa xx

I do have an excuse .... i mean, a very valid explanation :) I have been otherwise engaged ..... and if you had read my previous entry you would have known why ..... ok, i'll wait while you go check!!
Oh, go on then. I was in Blackpool for a weekend with my boys ...... proof?! Here u go .... now, i've tried to add a foto just to show u, but I haven't be able to figure out how to get it in the middle of the post!!! so i'll just have to add another post.
Lol, no posts for a while, now u's willl be sick of me.
The next weekend I was in Newcastle with my girlie friends. Hence the picture, The Sage Hall, also affectionately known by locals as the Slug!! Can you understand why. I have to tell how daft we girls are tho. We had brunch in a restaurant just across the river from this amazing structure. Because of the location we thought thats how it (the restaurant) got its name. How were we supposed to know that The Slug and the Lettuce was a chain of eateries!! They sure don't have any in Norn Iron. Anyway, a nice wee lad (from East Belfast (over at Uni) I might add ... woo hoo) who worked there explained it to us. Moral of the story .... don't give 4 Irish women wine with their breakfast ...... can u guess how the rest of the trip panned out??
Doesn't the slug make a brilliant picture!! Back soon with some more ....... xx
