Change of Plans

This week is going too quickly, it wont be long and we shall be going back to Manchester to take Katerina to the airport.
Today we had planned on going to Manchester United to the tour around the stadium...again. Andis is a big Man U fan as is Katerina but Paul woke up rather ill and covered in a rash. He is full of cold and I just couldnt ask him to stand around at railway stations in this bitterly cold weather. After a family discussion we decided to give Manchester a miss until Monday so instead of wrapping up warm, chilling at home with feet up, we went to Nottingham (via Beeston to a model shop). We spent a lovely 6 hours around broadmarsh and Victoria Center. Andis was lucky in his shopping and found some brilliant bargins, Katerina came home with earings and a couple of new tops. Here is a photo of a strange gentleman we stumbled across
He was very good actually. Katerina and Andis had never seen anything like it. This was taken after we discovered that our favourite cafe in the Broadmarsh had gone. I have been taking the girls there for over 10 years. Both Katerina and I were rather upset that it had closed, it seems like an end of an era to us.
On our walk back to Victoria Centre we very quickly browsed a small market, it was quick as well as it was bitterly cold with a chilling wind blowing. We managed to get just the one photo in front of one of the rides.
Just 2 more sleeps until Santa arrives. I have to be up at the crack of dawn to get some fresh salad and fresh veg, a few chores and then the day is my own. Surprise surprise but Katerina and Andis want to go back to the Westfield Center to do MORE shopping. I think I will be dropping them off and leaving them to it for a few hours.

Thanks for having a read and I hope you manage to get everything done in time.
