We took Amy to a college open evening tonight. This is the college she really wants to go to in Manchester that offers the all important Creative Writing A Level she's desperate to do. The atmosphere was really good and the fact that it's in the city centre and surrounded by University buildings means there's a definite student feel to the place. We have lots of modern colleges in Greater Manchester but the city centre campus buildings are still mainly red brick. She really liked it and is definitely going to apply.
And it was Thomas' Halloween party at school tonight. Typical isn't it having two events on the same evening. We had to enlist Mum to help out and take Thomas to school as timings meant his party started slap bang in the middle of Amy's open evening. He didn't want to dress up fully but took a liking to this mask and chain saw.
The boys really enjoyed the footie last night. Mark said Thomas had a great time and of course the evening couldn't have ended better. City scored the winning goal in the first 2 minutes of extra time. They didn't get in til gone 11pm and Thomas was so hyped up he didn't get to sleep til nearly midnight. But, I'll give him his due, he was up, dressed and ready for school this morning with no moaning.
An early night is definitely on the cards tonight though - for all of us.
