After the night before …… it took quite a while for all of us to get back to our own rooms to freshen up, put on our convention t-shirts and generally make ourselves look vaguely human and presentable …….
…….. and all, in turn, assuring a worried Hank and Marvin that they had nothing to apologise for, their “hospitality” had been the icing on a wonderful cake of a “convention” type nature as far as we were all concerned ……..
…….. and something, when the paracetamols had kicked in and our heads cleared, we would all look back on and talk about very, very fondly indeed.
Having so many monkeys staying in one hotel also proved somewhat of a novelty to the hotel staff and guests (well, perhaps not to the guests in the rooms either side of Hank and Marvin’s), so our photocall took rather longer than we had anticipated, as everyone wanted to take their own photos as well, I think, perhaps, we may have almost gone viral!
After said photocall we had then planned to hit the sights and shops of Swindon, but general consensus had it that perhaps we should to stay where we were and chill. Darrell said that he would much prefer to just sit and keep his head as still as possible for a while, if Swindon indeed had a castle or other such attraction it could remain a mystery to him for a little longer as far as he was concerned.
So there we stayed, with Sammy asking the hotel staff if they wouldn’t mind turning the TV over to the Create and Craft channel seeing as no one else was in the lounge with us at the time ……. (all no doubt out visiting Swindon Castle!!!!!)
