We had a nice trip up to Manchester (or more correctly Knutsford) over the weekend. We knew we were approaching Manchester after the sunny afternoon drive was obscured by the large cloud burst darkening the sky. The pattern of rain continued until Sunday but luckily lifted itself for the duration of the May Day Parade.
It was lovely catching up with people and news - our own is probably spreading via non-public means as I post. We hope to come up later this year and perhaps catch-up with a few more people.
