Really?....It's March already?

I can't believe it is March already.  Not only that it, is the 2nd of March!

Work has been busy and the weather has been a little grey recently so we haven't ventured out that much. 

I did however have a lovely girlie weekend with my 3 friends up in Manchester last week.  It was a belated Christmas Party that we were supposed to do in December when we had all the snow, also it was my Travel buddy's birthday on the 16th (another reason for a cocktail)....OH and my other friend finished Chemo and Radiotherapy just after New Years - so all in all, many cocktails were prescribed!

We started out at a Champagne bar called Epernay where we had a couple of very nice cocktails and some olives!  I say started - M and I had already consumed a Kir Royal at her house getting ready...but ssshhhh!  

I tried a new cocktail called a Polish Princess (it was yummy and had three blueberries skewered on a cocktail stick...but I can't for the life of me remember what was in it....Ginger, Vodka....and then it all gets a little vague)

From there we walked a little ways to Room... the food was good, but the music was too loud and it was all just a bit "I am here to be seen" kinda style... not really my thing.  But we had a laugh giving out our Secret Santa gifts in Feb!  Here I had a couple of Cosmo's...I was missing the Polish Princess though....yep you guessed it, after dinner we ventured back to Epernay (and got VERY wet on the way as it had started lashing it down)  All in all a LOVELY night.  On the Saturday M and I hit the Trafford Centre in style for a spot of retail therapy and met C for lunch too!  I have to say since moving to Cornwall, large shopping malls are a little overwhelming, but I managed a few purchases!

Apart from that - not a lot.  We have had a few nice afternoons weather wise, and Marleyman has cleaned the greenhouse and started the first lot of seeds!  

Take Care

Glad you had a good time - Manchester is very different from Penzanze! (I know which I prefer!)xxxx
