2014 Week 34 Day 4 – Today was the last day of our holidays; we left the windy caravan park and instead of heading home, we headed to….. Manchester! For a numbers of reasons. 1. Barnaby’s favourite team is Manchester City, due to Joe Hart being the goalkeeper. 2. I have never been to Manchester 3. It would break up our car journey 4. We could watch Dr Who in the evening. 5. We would get to stay in a Premier Inn, a firm favourite of the boys.
The added bonus was that I had booked the one by the airport, so we got to see the planes flying really low! We also got to take a train in to the city centre. Always a bonus for the kids. Once there, we headed over the the science museum, and attempted their puzzles and games.
We also realised it was Gay Pride that day, so there was an amazing atmosphere in the city and we ended up in a hotel bar and enjoyed some cocktails that had been specially mixed for the occasion. We also got to see a drag Queen or two.
