This was in the main foyer. You take your photo on the machines below and your picture appears up here.
Today me and the bf went to the Manchester Science Museum and then had a late pub lunch. Though it was absolutely freezing, I had been looking forward to this for a while. I love having weekends now.
I was in my element in the textile hall. Was telling the bf all the little facts I remembered from uni. Some people really don’t understand how sciencey textiles is. How cool are these shoes?
Underground Manchester. Really felt like I was in Harry Potter (such a nerd) and makes me really want to go to the WB Studio Tour (I so am!). Learned about sewers and gas – so romantic. Go on, ask me anything, ha ha!
We then went to the poshest pub I’ve ever been to, The Ox, which is right across the road from the museum. The bf spotted a sign that said 2 courses for a tenner, so we thought why not. This was my starter (very photo worthy), goats cheese and red peppers. Delicious!
My main course was salmon and teriyaki noodles, also delicious and photo worthy.
And introducing the poshest fish and chips I have ever seen (those wedges were awesome!).
I also took photos of my outfit today but those are in a guest post that I’ve done for Sparkly Flamingo. Not sure when it will go up, but I will let you know. I’m excited, I’ve never done a guest post before.
How was your saturday?
I don’t care that it’s way past noon and I’m still in my pyjamas. It’s sunday and they have pandas on, so it’s ok.
Kinky boots. This picture on my shoe desk calendar made me smile.
A couple of yums from the week. Claire (my bfs house mate) made us some awesome mac and cheese with breadcrumbs, cut up sausages, mustard and lea and perrins among other things. It was amazing. And I got to take left overs to work the next day. Score! I also went to Yo Sushi with my mum and brother. My brother had not been before so that was funny. He’s very sarcastic so his reactions to stuff made me laugh.
Decided to be a bit weird and wear my butterfly necklace that I got from Primark a couple of years ago and have only worn once. Wore it with my sheer black shirt with leather detail, skinny jeans, black wedges and my grey half sleeve batwing cardie. Still not 100% sure if it worked but ah well. Fashion is for fun and I had fun wearing this outfit.
Housemates cats, Rose and Axl. Look how cute they are!
Saw this guy in the window of House of Fraser in Meadowhall. He was actually cycling! Love it.
Me and the bf getting ready for our impromptu night out last night. Luckily I had bought this dress earlier at Meadowhall. Was £85 at monsoon but I got it for £25.50 in the sale! And how cool is the bfs t-shirt. We saw it online and had to get it. It’s Darth Vader, Sauron and Voldemort having drinks at a bar. Awesome.
How was your week?
So this was an interesting week, more so towards the end. Check it out.
Axl gets tired surfing the web all day.
A 1930s pump on my 365 days of shoes desk calendar. Love this (thank you to my lovely bf for getting it for me).
Axl being Axl. He’s weird. Nuff said.
Went to the red hot world buffet on deansgate on friday night with the friend and bf. Was nomtastic. Just check out my desserts! Love the waffle on a stick.
Yes, I am going out with what appears to be a child. The bf’s selections. All the delicious things and he went mental about the bubblegum ice cream. Didn’t believe me when I said there are loads of other places he could get it, lol.
This is Axl.
He is one of my housemates’ cats (his sister is called Rose who I have introduced before – they are guns and roses fans, lol). He is a rather odd fellow who likes bags, the smell of shampoo, stretching into the weirdest positions and purring extremely loud.
He has no shame.
Apologies for the messy floor. My internet only works well on the floor so this is where my laptop lives. Axl decided to wander into my room after I’d had a shower and went mental sniffing the towel that I’d dried my hair with. This is how he ended up. Legs a kimbo and front paws up making him pose like a rabbit. An odd fellow indeed…
The first week of the new year was a rather nice one for me. Saw some friends from my old work on Monday, went back to work and had a lovely Nandos meal with the bf where shock horror, I didn’t order chicken!
I like playing Just Dance, but what I find even better is watching my bf and his housemate play it. Hilarious. He tries so hard and she puts in no effort and beats him!
This Vanilla Chai Latte from Whittards is officially nom. Was a bit of a impulse purchase as I was only in there buying some more mulled wine tea because it’s only seasonal, but it definitely paid off. So yummy!
Finally got me some fuzzy socks which I have been after all winter. They are purple and sparkly which makes them the ultimate winter socks for me!
A bargain from Primark for a pound. I may have binged a bit in there on Monday after saying goodbye to my friends. Might have got the matching necklace as well (also a pound!) but don’t worry – I won’t go wearing them together. Stag overload!
Was kept company the other night by none other than Rose, one of my housemates cats. How cute is she? Looks like she’s smiling.
