A bit of a mixed bag today for T Stands for Tuesday!
First - my birthday present from hubby - he had overheard me enquiring about these in a shop and then ordered them online for me - such a lovely surprise when I opened them!
Last week we met up with youngest son - he had been working 12 hour days/7 days a week and when I spoke to him at the beginning of the week I was quite concerned about his health. After he had spoken to people he works for and other managers he was able to have that situation changed and managed to get some shorter hours and a day off!
We met at Moose in Manchester and I was pleased to see a much cheerier son!
Yes - he has two drinks - one was a free Caramel Latte! The other some sort of Peanut Butter milkshake. He is wearing the Christmas Jumper his staff bought him!
I think this alone deserves to be the picture to represent a drink at
However, we did all have delicious food and drinks
Hubby had a Tuna Sandwich, mine was a pulled pork on Brioche and son had salt beef bagel.
My drink was a sugar free skinny latte.
Our intention was to visit the Christmas Market but we only whizzed through as we had presents to buy so knew where we were heading!
I also had some vouchers to spend so the day went very quickly and we headed back home just before the rush hour.
Yesterday we went in to finish our shopping and have a proper look around although I didn't take many photos!
This windmill has a bar and cafe underneath.
Naff Santa is still above the door on the beautiful Town Hall(there is surely something better than this?)
The only other photo I took!
Manchester Christmas Market is huge for sure but there are so many repeats of stalls in different areas although I was pleased to see more local craftsmen/women had stalls this year.
On Sunday we met up with middle son, grandson and granddaughter for lunch and then a walk around the lake at Chorlton Water Park.
I had decided not to take any photos but to walk and talk but near the end of our walk we saw this…
It wasn't very light but we were mystified to see these dolls climbing the tree. I don't know how long they have been there but we walk in this area quite often and have never seen them, a couple passing by said there seems to be a new one each year!!
With my phone camera still in my hand we realised that the sun had appeared very low on the horizon!
The sun then turned various shades of pink and blue...
Finally may I wish you a happy, peaceful Christmas.
Thanks for looking, Chris
