MH - little boy lost

Testing waters...

This is just a quick one to find out who might be interested.

I haven't been to a theme park in aaaaages. There are two new rides at Alton Towers I haven't been on, and a new one at Drayton Manor. Ordinarily I would go with Vicky (from Uni) but since she discovered musicals she's always in London for one thing or another and doesn't have free time.

I would go with Paul, but he's a big wuss and won't go on the rides. In which case, it's a bit pointless.

So I'm looking for someone living in Birmingham (though not necessarily) who likes rollercoasters, and can stand to spend a day with me. (I realise this last criteria may put a few people off. :P)

I would be looking to go mid-week in either May or September, whilst the kids are in school and the weather is mostly clement. It's also cheaper then, and the queues are shorter, etc...

If you would be interested, please leave me a comment on this entry.

Of course, I need to check the websites for Alton Towers, Drayton Manor and also Chiltern trains, to clarify those prices, as they've probably gone up since the last time I went (about two years ago). I'll do an addendum once I have (if only so I don't forget or lose the details) and depending on interest.

So, who's up for a theme park?

(Failing any of you lot, I'll offer to take Paul's niece and nephew off their parents' hands for a day. Lord knows I could do with some practice at responsibility... :P)

In other news, I have caught the dreaded lurgy. I blame the weather. My body doesn't cope well with extreme changes in temperature, and subsequently I feel rather like I've been punched in the chest... However, Alastair has donated half a packet of Lockets and that'll have to do for now. I probably shouldn't go swimming tonight, but I was making good progress last week with regards to my feet not cramping, and a week off will take me back to square one...
