I really enjoyed our time there, I like Manchester and it has so much on offer compared to my small home city. We hit the shops and though I wasn't looking for it yet I found a gorgeous dress in Per Una for the holiday in Dublin that Debbi and I will be having in November. One of the nights we are there we will be staying at the Penthouse in the Clarence Hotel (we've been saving for ages!!) and I wanted a "posh frock" for the evening . I found the perfect one and what really pleased me was that I fitted into a size 14!!! I could hardly believe it, that diet is certainly working.
Margo bought the most gorgeous designer bag, very classy, beautiful leather, for £200 (reduced from £400!) - she has expensive taste!
We had a lovely meal at my favourite Thai restaurant in Manchester, Chaophraya. I think I walked off any calories I put on as we shopped, as Margo is the consummate shopper. We were up this street, down that street, round that corner..... Kath and I were flagging by 5pm when we got our train back home - and we are both younger than her - we flopped into our seats with a huge sigh
But it was a great day. It was lovely being my friends, chatting, trying on clothes, testing perfume, eating in a good restaurant. It does you good to have a girly day away every now and then!
