Christmassy Day Out in Manchester
Rosie and Rhid arrived yesterday from Wales, for a trip round the Christmas Markets in Manchester. They came bearing home-made scones and pictures of their new kittens. Even though it rained a little, we had a really lovely day around the town - completely exhausting ourselves going to many of our favourite places.
We went to one of my very favourite bookshops - the eccentric and fantastic Paramount Books on Shude Hil. There's a sale on at the moment - including these poor toys lined up on the settee.
The day passed wonderfully in a blur of Rupert Bear annuals, hot sausages in mustardy ketchuppy barms, Spiderman comics and Baileys Lattes and Chocolate cake. Bliss!
