Day off #1 (birthday celebrations & Alan Carr in Manchester).


Jonathan and I had yesterday off work and after a wonderful lie in we dragged ourselves out of bed to do the million and one things we needed to do before heading to Manchester late afternoon to meet my Mum, Dad, Sister and her fiance.

It is my Dad's 60th birthday next week so last night we all went to see Alan Carr in Manchester and had some tea at Chaophraya beforehand. Alan Carr is my Dad's favourite comedian, he has one of his shows on Sky Plus and watches it alll the time, so the tickets were bought as a surprise. 

Tea was absolutely yummy and we were all suitably stuffed afterwards and ready for some great comedy. Alan Carr was hilarious and we had really good seats. I felt a bit sorry for the people right at the back, as the arena is so huge!
