We ventured into Manchester this weekend, all four of us.
Visiting Fred was the main purpose; Fred Aldous. The children were less taken with the vast choice of art and craft supplies and most impressed with the vintage black and white photo booth. Not only is it black and white but you get 4 different poses!!! (I hadn't even noticed that modern ones give you the same pose four times - I must get out more!)
After lunch we braved the crowds and looked round the Christmas market, which is a lot like our own in Lincoln. You can see the sea of heads in one of the pictures. We held fast to one child each and shuffled through the crowds, managing to buy a couple of things along the way (will photograph soon).
There was an awful lot of food and drink stalls, mainly German it seemed.
Cities are so exhausting. Both the children fell fast asleep on the way home, and I may have had a small snooze myself!
