I guess you could say that we don’t make enough time for each other as a couple. We have been married 6 months without a date night. Is that normal? We didn’t even honeymoon. So you can imagine how excited I was when Si told me he’d book a night away to Manchester as a Valentine’s Day surprise.
Si had booked the junior suite at The ABode Manchester which was all the kinds of quirky that I love.
We spent a very rainy day walking around the city. We visited the football museum (yawn) and the John Ryland Library which was just incredible. Such a gothic looking building and being a massive Tim Burton fan I was feeling quite at home.
We had a table reservation booked at Artizan which has inspired me to decorate our house with things I love rather that things that I think work in a cottage.
I don’t know if it’s my age or just because I’m extra clever but nowadays I make sure I don’t drink too much because not being able to eat a full English breakfast in the morning would be too devasting. #priorites
I loved Manchester, I love how it contrasts to our sleepy village. I loved putting the world to rights and singing on the long car journeys. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in ages. A very much needed trip with my love.
