Isle of Wight (Part 2)

On the Thursday of my holiday I had a lazy morning watching TV and did not get up till gone 11 o’clock. I then watched some more TV including an old black & white film until my dad finished work at about 5:30.

We decided we would go into Shanklin for a few pints and after getting changed went to the Harry?s Bar. We were got there long when someone said that a band would be on later in the evening.

At about 9pm the band called Don’t Call Me Harry started playing and did various songs including Black On Blue and Paint It Black.

We left the pub after the last song and headed back to the caravan and ordered some food to be delivered. I had a Belly buster steak, which is a steak in pita bread with salad; chips and my dad had a Vampire burger and chips, which is a burger with Garlic Mayonnaise.

Friday started with TV again and at about 1pm we went into Shanklin to get something to eat. We had the all day breakfast which consisted of bacon, sausage, fried bread, tomatoes, eggs and baked beans, although I had mine without the eggs as I don?t eat them.

After we had our meal we went to Newport, and I couldn’t believe that Southern Vectis buses charge about £3.00 + each for the two of us to travel and in London I only pay £0.70 for any bus journey. It?s hard to think that London is not always the most expensive for some things.

Whilst shopping I got a portable mobile phone charger (takes 2 AA batteries) and 2 wine making kits (each makes 6 bottles and are medium dry flavour).

2 or 3 pints later in The Railway Medina we came back to Shanklin and my dad made a Chilli Con Carnie and as we didn?t want to wait for rice to cook, we had it with some Onion Bagels and Home-Made bread.

The evening was spent watching TV.

Wide Awake

I am wide-awake at 4:30am and cannot sleep. It seems like an eternity that I have been lying here.

Earlier in the day I had been planning on watching Enterprise as I always do on a Monday at 8pm on SkyOne. At 8:15, I realised that I had missed the first 15mins. I watched the rest, but I can see the repeat on Sunday.

Why can’t I sleep? I have to get up for work in about 3hrs.
