If you’re wondering why I’ve been a little bit quiet on social media recently then allow me to explain. Simon and I have been on a little Monday to Friday UK holiday.
Monday 10th June
So, we woke up at 4:30am and walked to town. Usually we get the bus but I wanted to leave the house even earlier so we walked instead. We popped to Tesco for some breakfast. I had Pan Au Chocolates and cookies and Simon had something but I really can’t remember what.
We arrived at the bus stop and got on the bus to Chester. The journey went slowly but I think that’s because I was excited!
Once we got to Chester, we realised we were super early so we got on an earlier train to Warrington Bank Quay. The train was super old fashioned and had slide down windows which really amused Simon and I. We kept pulling them up and down.
There was a 25 minutes wait and Warrington before we boarded the second train to Preston. Because we got an earlier train, we were an hour and a bit earlier than expected in Preston so we walked around the Fishergate Shopping Centre for a little bit.
After walking around some shops, we headed to The Sizzler for a bite to eat. The Sizzler is in Lytham but it’s worth the trip from Preston. I enjoyed my southern fried sweet chilli wrap and chips!
Once we had finished eating, we headed to the hotel to check in.
We were staying at the Travelodge in Lytham St Anne’s. We have stayed there many times before and the staff as super friendly and helpful. Our room was absolutely lovely and we got it at a good rate too.
We quickly threw our bags into the hotel room and headed for the bus to Blackpool. We ended up walking around Blackpool for a while and it was lovely.
Eventually, it was time to get the bus back to St Anne’s. Of course, I was hungry at this point so it was time for food.
After a quick outfit change and a selfie, we headed out to The Trawl Boat Inn for some food.
After eating, we took a walk along the pier and promenade. The weather was slightly windy but it was fun overall.
After a long day, we headed back to our hotel room and chatted until we fell asleep.
Tuesday 11th June
I woke up about 100 times in the night. I always do the first night in a hotel which is annoying. The bus was so comfy though!
I eventually got out of bed at 5am and started to get ready. I managed to get my hair into some kind of up-do which made me so happy because I have been waiting for my hair to grow for a while.
After watching Good Morning Britain for a little while, we headed out for breakfast. I bought a croissant to eat on the go so we could get on the bus quicker.
We hopped on the bus to Blackpool and did some shopping.
Our favourite shopping centre in Blackpool is the Houndshill. We can spend hours in there. We bought a paintball gun, clothing, shoes and video games.
After shopping for a while, we headed to the arcades.
In the arcades, we found a Zoltar so we had to get our four tunes read. Mine was way better than Simon’s though which made me laugh.
We played on a lot of 2p machines and walked around for a while.
It was then time to head out for more food. This time, we were having Chinese food. I ordered sweet and sour chicken with chips. Simon ordered the same. It was from a place called Chu’s in Lytham and it was so tasty.
After the meal, we headed back to the hotel to watch television get ready for the next day.
Wednesday 12th June
On Wednesday, I managed to sleep in for an extra hour. I did wake up pretty suddenly after an odd dream though. After watching Good Morning Britain again, Simon and I got ready and headed to Tesco to grab some food before we got on the bus to Preston. The bus to Preston take literally forever but once we got there, we had so much fun.
We did some shopping in two of our favourite shops, Tiger and Kenji. They are both super cheap and affordable shops that sell the cutest things.
After some shopping, we headed to Blackpool. Simon wanted to visit Sea Life so we did and it was super fun.
We even booked in for a behind the scenes tour so we got to see more than most visitors. We were the only one on the tour so I asked loads of questions and we found out all about different fish types and sharks.
At Sea Life, we did a little bit more shopping. Simon bought some plushies and I bought two enamel pins to add to my collection.
After Sea Life, we went into the Houndshill and had a little look around the shops again. At least this time we stopped ourselves from buying anything.
It was then time to head back to the hotel as it was getting later in the day so we hopped back on the bus and headed to St Anne’s. Once we arrived, we went back to the hotel, changed into our flip flops and went for a walk along the beach.
Although it was slightly cold, it was enjoyable and we just walked and talked about the future and how much of a good time we have had so far.
When the beach got a tad boring, we headed back to the hotel where I drank plenty of cups of tea and sat in bed watching television and listening to some tunes.
Thursday 13th June
On the Thursday we woke up early… again. After a cup of tea and some breakfast we walked around the shops in St Anne’s Square.
After walking became uninteresting, we headed back to the hotel for a mini rest before heading back out to Fleetwood.
Fleetwood have a huge market which sells a huge range of things. We didn’t buy anything but there was so much stuff that I wanted.
There were some spiritual stalls and I found loads of cool things. I was a happy girl.
After Fleetwood we headed to a little outlook shopping center for a walk around. There was even a Cadbury’s shop. I wanted everything but managed to restrain myself.
After shopping, we headed back to St Anne’s to our hotel. I had a cup of tea again and then started packing ready to leave the next morning.
Friday 14th June
Friday was the day that we headed home. But first, we took a walk around Blackburn. It was a lovely place and we did some mor shopping and exploring.
After exploring, it was time to head to the train station in Preston to get the train home.
The journey home was long but as soon as we arrived, I was glad to be home!
