Alton Towers - Thirteen new for 2010

Alton Towers have announced that "Thirteen" is the name of their new ride.

Thirteen launches on Saturday 20th March 2010 right at the start of the 2010 theme park season.

Located next to Rita Queen of Speed, Thirteen is a rollercoaster mixing physical and psychological fear - experts are calling it a 'psychoaster'! How exciting a new ride at Alton Towers, we can't wait for it to open!

Take a look at the Alton Towers Theme Park website for all the latest information about Thirteen .

Yesterday was a very sad day indeed at The Malthouse. As you will know if you have stayed with us or looked at our blog we have two cats Flossy and Smudge. However we are sad to report that we now only have one cat. Flossy our elderly cat (aged around 20) had been unwell for a little while and unfortunately she had to be put to sleep yesterday. She had looked pretty frail for a year or two but had still been eating well and enjoying taking life easy in her old age.

Here is a picture of Flossy taken this summer in one of her favorite spots on our front lawn.

Needless to say we are devastated and already miss her terribly. The only good news is that Smudge (our youngster) is taking it all in his stride and still eating for England!

We have been on Holiday

You might wonder why there has not been an update to our blog for a while. This is because we have been away on holiday ourselves! Now we are back home and starting to get back into our usual routine you will hear from us again soon!
