Sorry for the late post! I had a busy week and weekend. I meant to post on Sunday but went for a “nap” at 7pm and didn’t wake up until 10am the following morning.. So heres my late #SundayFunday blog post!
So, on Saturday we went to my works Summer Ball, we left by about 3am because we had such a busy day planned on Sunday with my family. Dan moved home last week so i was convinced we were going to make the most of this weekend!
You always see all the #CoupleGoals posts on Instagram, and they’re cute AF. So! What better way to spend out Sunday! – I Scrolled through Instagram to get some date day ideas, we were out with my family anyways at Wicksteed Park – and then BOOM, i see the boating lake! 4 hours sleep between us, neither of us like exercise – how hard can this be?
We suited up in life jackets ( I can’t actually swim very well other than doggy paddle) and paid our 4 tickets and then off we went! Tickets are like £1.20 each, so half an hour on this boat only cost us £4.80 – Bargain right?!
Please remember the below photo – couple goals, instagram couple, cute right?
So! We get in the boat, i scream a lot cause Dan decides to rock it. Everyones going faster than us, but thats cool? We’re going at our own pace.. Why is everyone rowing the wrong way? Oh no.. we’ve now been in the boat for 10 minutes – going backwards.
We turn round – a chance to go forward correct? No. Dan finds a massive fountain in the middle of the lake, I’m screaming and he’s still rocking the boat singing “Don’t rock the boat, Don’t rock the boat baby!” – Confirmed : Wondering if he can swim so i can throw him in? He’s now moaning his arms are tired – okay we’ll swap!
I take over rowing, i think I’m doing really well, i have tiny arms, this is better than the gym! I have the worlds worst hay fever, i can’t actually see from teary eyes, i can’t smell cause my nose is blocked and I’m completely snotty – but hey other than that – this is going totally fine!
I may or may not (definitely may) have forgotten to look where we were actually going – so we crash slightly into a wall – it’s okay! Have to fear Bees and her big arms are here! I get us away from the wall (cussing at Dan the entire time about what massive arms i have and how he’s a wuss etc…)
Hmm.. A Willow tree seems to have appeared.. how do i turn again? What do i do!? Why isn’t he helping me?!
BRACE YOURSELF – I DON’T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE BOAT.
So, not a massive issue, who needs turning anyway? We’ll just go through the tree, its totally better anyways!
Okay this kind of hurts now, we attempt to duck..
Tree. A lot of Tree. An Awful Lot of tree – A HUGE TREE.
We get out of the tree, i keep rowing, it’s only a tree, I have leaves in my hair now but hey! It’s totally fine! Right?
Oh no – a motor boat goes past us. I can’t row next to this?! We end up IN the fountain. We’re laughing, were wet, we’re in bright bloody orange and i still can’t breathe.
Dan takes back the job of rowing and i give up – we row back to the start (it’s been over 40 minutes, we’d only booked it for half an hour…) We crash, run over some ducks, make another boat with a 3 year old girl in it crash – and we end up parking the boat (is that what you’d call it?) backwards…
So, what have we learnt? Instagram couples are not real life! I doubt they ended up getting off the boat soaked and covered in leaves after crashing repeatedly, nearly falling out and running over some ducks!
Better luck next week!
