On the Saturday we had a friend round to visit and had a barbecue. The weather was beautiful - I saw actual real life sun!
Sunday we went to a huge Garden Centre near to where we live. If you're ever near Warrington then definitely visit Bents. The coffee shop is amazing and the cakes are ridiculously good. They recently added a Bird of Prey Centre for rescued birds. What was the most refreshing to hear was that they rescue any bird in trouble, so they actually had a baby magpie that had fallen from its nest along with its five siblings. Unfortunately only the one survived.
On Sunday afternoon I led a critique group in Manchester and the lovely Jan Pearson gave me a wonderful book as a gift which I'm halfway through reading.
Monday - I'm not ashamed to say was a totally lazy day, although in the evening I had my first taste of the Opera at Haigh Hall.
I want more weekends like that one!
