Ignore all the rumours about the weather in Manchester: we recently spent a couple of days up north and didn’t experience a drop of rain! We got lucky when you consider that (besides visiting family) we were spending most of our time outside: the main purpose of our trip was to explore the Christmas markets.
I actually fell back in love with Manchester a little bit. London is a special place but it’s relentless unfriendliness gets a northern girl down after a while. Roll on Christmas, when I’ll be back at Euston to pop home again. It’s where the heart is, after all.
