bon voyage



Pearls and Poodles is packing its passport and is off on vacation! Things shall be a little peaceful around here over the next few days as I am off on my jolly holidays, and am relishing a whole five days off work. My friend Claire and myself are embarking on an epic voyage, one which will bring about fun, laughter, trams and shopping of monumental proportions. We are going for a wee jaunt 'oop north'. That's right ladies, Essex is coming to the bright lights and starry sights of...Manchester! I am currently amidst compiling a list of things to do and places to visit; the Trafford Centre, somewhat unsurprisingly, featuring quite highly. I have also been told I just HAVE to visit "Hey Little Cupcake" in Spinningfields and Rosso restaurant for some Italian fare and cocktails. I am really looking forward to our break away and a change of scenery even if the weather forecast does predict thundery showers on Friday and Saturday. Quelle surprise! 


Right, I really must scoot and tackle the formidable task of packing. I am literally the worst packer in existence. I like to prepare for every eventuality and fear I am going to forget something, so over-compensate my taking everything imaginable. I think this could be a long night...


All suggestions very welcome for things to do during our trip oop North!

I agree Afflecks Palace and Spinningfields are a must.
If your'e after a great night out try Canal Street its legendary.

And we have loads of pretty buildings, museums and art galleries if you fancy a change from shopping!
