Well last Tuesday I awoke at 5:45a.m. My head ached, my eyes were droopy. I felt like something out of the movie “Nightmare on Elm Street”. I forced myself to drag myself out of my bottomless pit of a bed and have a shower. After a bowl of Kellogg’s Frosties and a cup of coffee I began to come to my senses.
A taxi had been arranged to pick me up at 6:00a.m to take me to my local youth club, where I was met by the other members of the forum. There were about twenty of us altogether. We were all excited about traveling to Brussels so the cold wind didn’t seem to bother us.
The journey on the coach seemed to pass quickly. I watched two films, “Bruce Almighty” and “Big Momma’s House 2”. I enjoyed both of them, they were both hilarious! Also we played games of bingo and had a quiz. I won two lines, so I wontwo packets of chewy sweets.
In Surrey, we passed Cilla Black’s home. For those who don’t know, Cilla Black became a huge star in the 1960’s singing songs of Bacharach and David. But she’s most commonly known to millions as the host of “Blind Date”. I did try to get a photo, but we passed it too quickly. On the way back home, it was too dark to see anything.
I felt like the dog from the Churchill car insurance commercials as the bus drove over the bumps in the roads. I couldn’t help but nod my head.
On the ferry from Dover, it was a good crossing. I didn’t feel the ship moving at all. Well, only a few vibrations at the start. A bottle of Evian mineral water cost £1.85 though, Shocking!!
