Bank holiday..

 My Nana was supposed to be visiting over the weekend and the start of next week, but she's been taken ill with some kind of infection and a flare up of her arthritis, so unfortunately she's not okay to travel.  She lives down in Hertfordshire, about four hours drive away.  My auntie was going to come up too, so now we have a sudden change of plans.  It's a shame, especially for my niece, Poppy, because she was excited to see her.  She'll make it up another time though, or we'll get down there.  My mum mentioned her, dad, my sister and the kids heading down at the end of the week since it's half term, if she's feeling better.  I wouldn't be able to go though, because I'll be back at work.

But as we had a sudden change of plans, and to distract Poppy, we've come up with an alternative.  So we're heading to Pleasure Island tomorrow.  It's a low budget theme park about an hour's drive away.  I've not been there since I was a kid, and I'm kind of meh about it, but Poppy's probably going to love it.  We'll probably go to the Deep tomorrow too, which is awesome.  It's the aquarium in town, and they have penguins, tow of whom currently have eggs!  So exciting!  The babies are due early next month, and I can't wait!

I took Poppy to karate today instead of tomorrow, because of the planned trip tomorrow, and got her her karate suit finally.  She was so excited about it she was literally jumping up and down!  She's been wanting one since she started, but the teacher said to wait a bit till we know she wants to carry on.  She looks so cute in it. 

In other news, I bought myself a helmet camera for use on my bike today.  Ive been thinking about it for a while and I found one for a decent price.  If I'm going to be cycling t-o work in the city center, it;s not a bad thing to have with all the idiot drivers out there.  I;m thinking of getting myself an AirZound too, to beep at said idiots.

Well done to Hull City for winning the match to get back into the premiership too.  I don;t follow Football at all, and I feel a bit of loyalty to Sheffield Wednesday since my mum's from Sheffield and half my family support them, but Hull won, so yay.  At least the many football fans at work will be happy.  Half of them went down to watch it.
