We went down to the beach at Weston-Super-Mare on bank holiday Monday and I almost had a nervous breakdown. Everything was covered in sand – including Amy! I mean look at her. Argh!
After I calmed down (I really don’t know where my sudden sand phobia came from, but it was immense), we still managed to have a lovely day. We ate ice-cream, went along the Grand Pier and Ben even won me a Care Bear on one of the arcade machines. I have always wanted a care bear and now I have one in my favourite colour purple – eeek! I’m still absolutely over the moon!
It was actually the first time ever that I had a go at a gambling machine that isn’t a quiz machine and I can see why they can become a tiny bit addictive. I had a go at a 2p coin pusher machine and got slightly obsessed with the idea of tricking it. It worked on three occasions and I could fish some ridiculously tacky prizes out of the slot, but hey ho I guess you can’t expect to win a fortune on these things.
