This weekend Stuart and I went on holiday to Manchester because Stuart had never been and I went last year for a conference but was too nervous to explore the city properly on my own.
When we got there we walked around Canal Street, saw the Alan Turing memorial statue, and then wandered over to Chinatown. To our dismay the Chinese arch was covered in white plastic!
I bought the Miffy pyjamas from the UK’s biggest Primark which was a little bit like hell on earth.
Lunch was potato cakes and coffee and then we checked into our hotel and rested for a bit. After resting we walked around a bit more and went to a Japanese supermarket we passed and I bought the sweetest drink and we shared an Asahi beer in the Alan Turing garden.
We had a look in the Arndale Centre for a Galaxy S5 but everywhere had sold out of the black ones which were the ones Stuart wanted.
Then we went to Pizza Express then to the hotel and watched Coronation Street and went to bed at 10:15.
The next day was so good! We went to the People’s History Museum
and then the John Ryland’s Library and finally the newly refurbished Central Library (so swish). And then the train home.
