Nope, nothing to do with a misheard Bond movie – we went bowling at the Kettering Thunderbowl today!
We were last here back in May of this year with Paul & Sue – when it was my first visit! Back then, I started well but obviously peaked too early and ended up rubbish by the end of the game. In spite of that, a return visit was planned and we picked up Sue along the way (Paul’s ‘slumming it’ in Tenerife with Ben) to see if I could improve. What’s that? Ahh, the sound of fans NOT holding their breath! 😉
One thing you can say about the whole scoring process is that it’s very high-tech (maybe even more-so than last time?). No chalk on a blackboard here, instead an electronic scorecard with the option to link it to your phone. Even for me, it looked like a bit of a faff, but at least we got the scoreboard set up correctly with our names! 😁
And so, with Lane 7 all our own, and the surrounding area evacuated, we polished our balls and aimed for the target…
Do you know what? We didn’t do too badly. I found my form and was victoriousin the first, whilst Sue won the second, and final Frame.
By way of celebration, we then headed off to nearby Fox and Peony (our first visit) for a snack-lunch!
Well, that was a very pleasant experience! A straightforward menu all at a sensible price – and all served with a smile! 😁. Best of all, Sue treated us! Cheers Sue! 😍
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
