Blackpool Illuminations

At the last minute yesterday we decided to have a trip out to Blackpool as Mark had some of his work cancelled. We went to visit Aunty Ruth first in a nursing home, she is looking really well but had a fall earlier in the summer so it looks like she'll be in the nursing home for a little while. We then went to have a mooch around Tesco, we had a little coat to exchange for Charlie and bought Courtney some dishes and cutlery. Mark had been asked to do a measure in Blackpool so we tied that into our trip out next then went for some good ol' fashioned fish and chips on the (very windy) sea front! We knew the switch on was at 8:00 and we were a little early so we had a quick play in some amusements, Charlie quite enjoyed putting the pennies in the slots! We then walked along the 3D displays until switch on, our timing was perfect, we'd more or less reached the end of them when the lights came on! We walked back to the car and changed Charlie into his PJ's before driving down the prom to look at the rest of the illuminations but it all proved to much for Charlie and he fell to sleep about a third of the way along, bless him.♥
