    Just lovely
    Monday, November 27, 2006
    Well that's how i would describe the Alton Towers hotel. In fact on walking into the hotel it was very luxurious. It has a 4* rating and you can see why. The lobby is very oldy worldy and the reception area is mad to look like old bookcases. Theres a huge winding staircase that fills the whole floor and from the bottom to the top is a huge ship with a globe on the top, very extravagent! So we got there around lunchtime and decided to swim first. Dave has had the unfortunate occurence in the past of Corey throwing up in the swimming baths so we
    thought it would be a good idea to have lunch after swimming lol. So we go to the waterpark and wow, what a fabulous place. Very big and just filled with fun, especially for the kiddys but Corey i'm afraid is no water baby and whinged the entire time. We didn't stay in for a long time because of that but as soon as we got out he kept asking when we were going swimming again. The sad part is that you aren't able to take pictures in the waterpark :( So we then headed to the Dragon bar for a bite of lunch. I'll say something for the hotel, the staff were amazing, so polite, friendly and attentive. It's not often you find that in this country! So we had a nice lunch, checked in and off we went to our room which was huge. It had a double bed and bunk beds and the most gigantic bear that was bigger than Corey. Then we went and had a wander round the hotel for a bit and then Dave took Corey swimming again while i chilled out with coffee in the bar. Before we knew it it was time for dinner and we had an all you can eat buffet which again was fabulous. We had a pretty chilled out evening and although i didn't sleep well(combination of a different environment and DH snoring!) Next morning we got up and had a wonderful buffet breakfast where i feasted on everything! Then it was time to leave. We're so glad we went. It was only a teeny break away but so worth the £20! We were going to go somewhere on the Saturday when we left the hotel but the weather was terrible with torrential rain so we had to head straight home. Saturday evening was pretty chilled. I wanted to get involved with a couple of cybercrops that were happening but i just didn't have the energy.
    Yesterday was horrific as i had the most amazing migraine. It didn't get really bad until lunchtime but i had to go to bed at 7pm and fell asleep almost straight
    away and didn't get up until 630am this morning. Still had it when i woke up but it soon disappeared and i felt great the rest of the day.
    Tomorrow i have the cardstock coming for my Christmas cards and as i have my photo all prepared i can at last make a start on then! I think me and the boy will head of to Junglemania tomorrow for some fun!
    Nite nite peeps!

      glad you had a fab time.

      have you considered you might have a yeast extract allergy - thats gives ian huge migraines. its the stuff in a lot of foods to make it taste meater - its in twiglets and oxo - worth seeing what happens after you eat those - we often have to avoid buffets etc cos they put it in a lot of sauces.
