Double Date! – Bowling and Cinema
After having a lovely meal at Frankie and Benny’s with Jacob, the two of us went bowling with our friends Anthony and Bella.
We paid around £18 between us, for one hour of bowling. During that hour we just about managed to squeeze in two games!
The first game was a draw between me and Bella, whilst the second game was a draw between Anthony and Jacob! Therefore meaning we were all winners. And although we were all fairly competitive, we had a lot of fun.
Me and Bella decided to take full advantage of the bar, and ordered two bottles of Rekorderlig cider, mine was passionfruit flavoured and Bella’s was strawberry and lime. They were both very refreshing! I will definitely be drinking that again in the future.
When both of our games had finished, we all jumped into the photo booth to capture the memory. Mainly so I could have some pictures for my scrapbook, to add to my birthday pages. I absolutely love the pictures of me and Bella! And the group pictures just make me laugh every time I look at them. Memories to last a lifetime.
Once we had our pictures, we decided to go to the cinema to watch Escape Room, as we spotted a sign saying that all movies, every day, cost just £4.99! This was a 10:30 pm screening and I absolutely love late night cinema dates.
The movie was pretty good, though the ending could have been a little bit better than what it was. It had the same sort of vibe as the Saw movies (which I am a huge fan of!) It also strangely made us want to book an escape room together… you would think it would put you off of them for life!
After the movie, we started to head home. Though we spotted some strange, bright pink smoke in the sky and decided to take a detour to see what it was. When we got closer, we discovered that it was coming from greenhouses! Some kind of strange technique to grow flowers and plants without the need for soil. We had never seen anything like it! Safe to say we are all easily amused.
After enjoying our strange little detour, we got back in the car and headed for home once more. As we approached Edge Hill University, we asked Bella if she would like a tour of the grounds as she will hopefully be a student there this coming September. We parked up the car near the front entrance and began on our way. It was 1 in the morning at this point! But we gave a pretty good tour despite the majority of the buildings being closed for the night. We also met Campus Cat, who followed us around for the majority of our time there! He is super cute and tends to follow various students around in the hope of being let indoors for warmth, food and cuddles.
It was 2:30 in the morning by the time we got home and despite being in work the next day, I was happy, as I had a really great night with amazing people.
I can’t wait to make more memories with these people and for Bella to move to the UK full time! I can see us being best friends… and I am totally okay with that!
