Finally, a glimpse of sunnier days. Although I think I spoke too soon, as today it is actually raining but this weekend however, we finally saw some blue skies in Manchester. Although it may have still been rather nippy, I still saw the brighter looking weather as an excuse to wear my new sandals which I got to pick out from Clarks recently. I went for the Hotel Bustle sandals in navy leather. I was instantly drawn to them, I love the colour and when they arrived I loved them even more.
On Saturday it was of course Valentine’s Day and I spent it with my boyfriend doing what we do best… Eating! We took an impromptu journey to the Northern Quater and found ourselves in Almost Famous (the best burger joint), chowing down on some delicious burgers. I went for something a little different this time and opted for the burger consisting of two burger patties, a sausage pattie, poached egg, potato waffle and maple syrup. It was actually amazing! Then for sides we went for our usual portions of bacon bacon fries and suicide wings. How romantic are we. In the evening we enjoyed champagne and cocktails and I received a Hockney coffee table book which I was thrilled with (David Hockney is my favourite artist in case you didn’t know). It was rather fitting as last Valentine’s Day we took a trip to the Tate in Liverpool to see Hockney’s exhibition there. So keeping with the theme, maybe next year I’ll receive a genuine Hockney painting… Yeah right.
