Its been quite a nice week. I’m currently sat in bed using the extra hour we got last night when the clocks went back to gather some photos from my camera and phone to post what I got up to this week…
Thursday evening (excuse the bad phone pics) was spent at Oktoberfest in Manchester’s St Ann’s Square. We got a deal on Groupon which included entrance at the door for two, seats in the VIP area (at the front near the stage) and two main courses with champagne. It was a really good night, Graeme had so much fun he was dancing on the table!
On Saturday morning Graeme picked me up and whisked me away for breakfast in Manchester. He took me toMoose Coffee, an authentic American/Canadian diner style cafe. There was a queue out the door and a 35 minute wait to be seated but it was well worth it when my ‘double dutch’ sausage and bacon pancakes arrived, they were a-m-a-zing!
After that we ventured to the Lowry to the ‘Behind the mask‘ exhibition. The exhibition, which is on until 11th January 2015 is a photographic collection of actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for a BAFTA since 1954. It’s definitely interesting if you’re into portrait photography or even just movies and popular culture in general, I especially enjoyed the portrait of Brad Pitt 😉
Saturday evening (again excuse the phone picture) I spent at The Ritz with my mum watching her favourite band of all time The Boomtown Rats. This was my third time watching the band and my first time at The Ritz, the atmosphere was awesome and Bob Geldof in his PVC snakeskin suit was as intriguing as ever.
