this is my best friend/favourite person in the whole wide world. yes, she has green/blue hair. anyway, we went to alton towers on monday -and returned on wednesday- and stayed in the alton towers splash landings hotel. we went for something to eat at the other hotel and discovered that it was much more picturesque. they have an outside part with a water feature and pretty bridges, such as this one, and a bandstand. it was fantastic. emma looked beautiful, as always.
