I always feel lucky to live less than a twenty minute train ride away from Manchester. It’s such a vibrant resilient city showing the true character of the people after the Manchester Arena terrorist attack.
During the last few weeks I have been mooching about town discovering some lesser known facts about the city, checking out exhibitions, (The legendary Frank Sidebottom collection in Central Library is a must if you were a fan of this comic genius.), catching some live music and trying out new places to eat and drink. I also revisited Corbieres, which in my younger days was always a great place to select tracks off it’s iconic jukebox, after going shopping in the Corn Exchange…..sadly the Corn Exchange no longer exists in its old form, and the jukebox is now CDs not vinyl, but the bar is still cool.
Finally, as it was recently Easter I have to share a photograph of my Easter Egg, which was kindly given to me from one my best mates, Bev. She is an amazing friend and has been so since infant school. The only problem is she has a fantastic memory and can remember all the embarrassing things I did……anyway happy belated Easter and make the most of wherever you live.
