Easter Weekend

This weekend Amanda's brother Steve and his girlfriend Rachel came down from up north to visit for a few days. Steve is off traveling soon so came down to see Amanda and Bump before he sets off.

They got to our house Saturday morning and we had quite a lazy day and just relaxed. In the evening I made a Thai curry and we watched some crap TV. On Sunday we took them to Matlock Bath and went on the cable car up to the top of the cliff and went on the cave tour.

Both Steve and Rachel aren't keen on heights, so the cable car was just what they were looking forward too :-) There were 2 caves at the top of the cliff which had organised tours. The first tour lasted around 30 minutes. The caves were quite good, although a bit cold.

Once we had finished at the cliff top we got the cable car back down to the town centre and went to get some lunch. We got some fish and chips. Amanda was glad to sit down as she was feeling quite tired lugging around a big bump.

After lunch we went to one of the games arcades at Matlock Bath and wasted a couple of quid on the 2p machines. We then headed back to the house. Once there we put on the Nintendo Wii and played some games. Mainly Mario Kart, which was quite good fun, although Rachel was a bit of an expert at the game and beat us all. I think we need to get some practice in.

After dinner we watched Beverly Hills Cop 2 which we had recorded on Sky+ from before Christmas. Forgot how much of a great film that is. Steve and Rachel drove back home this morning and I prepared for a day working in the garden. I am feeling knackered now....
