Manchester wasn't as busy as I thought it would be, in fact there was nobody around. This is outside the Town Hall where one of the Christmas Markets was. Maybe it'll be a different story this weekend.I did a bit of a party table for Amy, Thomas and my Mum before we went out. Just a few sandwiches, sausage rolls, crisps and sweets. They obviously enjoyed it because there wasn't much left when we got home.
Today has been spent pottering around the house doing a few bits and pieces, but nothing very much really. I bought a panettone yesterday, just a little one which I'm looking forward to trying.
The weather here has been wet, windy and grey. It would appear Storm Barbara is on her way. A 10 minute downpour and gusts earlier on resulted in a broken shed panel on one side of the garden.
And it blew one panel down completely on the other side.
Apart from the damage it was quite nice that it was dark enough to light the candles mid afternoon.
It's my nephew's 18th today. He's brother to our niece who turned 13 on Monday. This week is always busy for their family, 2 birthdays as well as Christmas but this year it's been extra busy. He's having a party tonight but his sister does ballroom dancing and it's her presentation so me, Mum and Thomas are taking her there and we'll just pop in for a bit when we drop her off.
Two nights out on the trot for me, but definitely no drinking tonight as I'm driving. Not a bad thing really. I wasn't keen on how I woke up feeling this morning and don't fancy a repeat tomorrow.
Not long to go now. 2 more sleeps!!!
