This weekend……

{The boy, sunnies, driving}

…..We took a little trip to Manchester to see the boy’s sister and her boyfriend. They recently got engaged, and although the trip had been planned before – it came at such a great time. There was a massive traffic jam on the M62, so we went over the moors, {I think}.

He drove so I sat there and looked out at the countryside and took a few snaps in the late day sunshine – through the car window though, so they’re a little hazy.

{Empty Roads}

{This man was sweeping the road – WTF?}

{We thought this was a great, and possibly, unusual shot.
What with this ashcloud that’s enveloped Europe grounding flights.}

I also spent Saturday shopping with Jane and Sue, their mum, for wedding dresses. Here is just a little bit of detail from one of the dresses she tried on.
I have to say, there were a lot of hideous ones. Real WAG dresses, but Jane tried on some stunners. I can’t wait to see which one she goes for. And the wedding is in Portugal, in September, so its an excuse for a few days in the late summer sun, and a chance to get a bit of a tan before my possible India trip in November.
There are a lot of weddings in their friendship group at the moment, so the evenings drinks kind of had a theme.

{Details, details}

    Those 'Manc Airport Closed' signs have been freaking me out for days. It's like something out of 28 Days Later!

    I know, it feel apocalyptic doesn't it.
    We watched 'the road' last week, and it kind made me think i'm not cut out for hardcore survival. I'd have the worst hair!
