Today was the last day of our French exchange student’s week with us, and my dad took the day off work to take us bodyboarding in Cornwall. Unfortunately, the weather was grey, wet and miserable, so we gave the actual bodyboarding bit a miss. We wandered around Perranporth and Newquay, including a stop at the Ben & Jerrys cafe. Cherry Garcia waffle sundae with chocolate sauce and white chocolate polar bears, since you asked. For lunch I had my first ever savoury crepe, ham and cheese, which was delicious (though not as good as French ones, or so I’m told!). Yum! 🙂
In Newquay, we checked out the local
nightlife amusement arcades, but unfortunately didn’t win anything. (Much to my mum’s relief!) When we were on our way home, my sister and I discovered we had both been nominated for the ice bucket challenge, which our parents took great delight in inflicting on us. I chose to donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association (text ICED55 to 70070 followed by the amount you want to donate). It was freezing, but suprisingly fun 🙂 Following it with traditional British fish and chips in front of the Marines programme on TV was a bonus, of course.
Have you done the ice bucket challenge, and what were your opinions on it? What’s your programme of choice for a TV dinner?
