We had been promised snow in Manchester but on waking up on Saturday, the weather forcasts now said no snow. We got over our disappointment and set out for a day date, just me and MrP. We started with lunch, which was in a vegetarian cafe attached to a shop full of kitsch tat (yay!) where the tables were made from melted down old phone cases......
|Mmmm jasmine tea|
|Can't remember what this face from MrP was about!|
Off out into the snow again to look at the vintage stalls and retro game shop in Afflecks Palace (an 'alternative' shopping centre, if you're not familier with Manchester) where I fell in love with this safari bag while MrP was routing through the Master System games...
|A bag which is cool AND practical - whatever will they think of next!|
I got a FAB metal owl mug and to go in it, I also got more of the tea from Whittards which I was on about in my last post. In the tea shop I also found this tea diffuser for all the loose tea I've been buying in the shape of a house. I LOVE it, even if it looks like it won't hold much tea!
Then we made it all the way out to Salford Quays in the snow to see 'Pearl and Dave' which is the new show from Isy Suttie, a comedienne who also plays Dobby in Peep Show.
MrP got the tickets - I wasn't too sure - but it was GREAT! A love story told through anecdotes and songs which was very funny and lots of fun to watch. I recommend it if you get the chance! By the end of the day the snow was at that 'compacted ice' phase and, in my non-grip shoes, I was slipping all over the place and had to cling to MrP to avoid falling on my backside!
Today was much more low key; some sitting about, catching up on New Girl (I so want to like it, but I'm not sure I do) and tidying. We went to see Hugo at the local cinema in the afternoon - an old independent one with tickets that pop up out of the counter and ash trays in the seats. I thought the film was ok, not amazing.
In other news, I am looking forward to watching the new series of Being Human and BEYOND excited for the new series of Game of Thrones. The first official trailer only served to heighten my already fever pitch excitement:
Hope your weekend was great!
