Staying Organised

It’s no secret I’m an organisation freak. I’m the annoying person that has her Christmas presents bought and wrapped by the beginning of January, the one who hands in work days not hours before it is due in, and generally has her life planned down to the most minute list. No… I’m not showing off!  In fact,…

Christmas Markets

The lead up to Christmas in Manchester is always fairly magical. Yes, the temperatures drop, but there is just something about the smell of mulled wine floating through the air that makes me happy to be there! The Christmas markets never fail to disappoint, with lots of stalls laden with edibles, decorative items and unique…

7 things that have made me happy

It’s a little hard to remain positive at this time of year. Homesickness kicks in, it starts to get dark early and university work appears to drown me. However, in a bid to see the world less depressing, I’m going to make a list of all the things that have made me smile. 1. The…

Almost Famous

A random special,stolen from here. Last Sunday I had the insane pleasure that was Almost Famous. Matt, a fellow couple, and I had been drinking for most of the afternoon, and when the stomach rumbles rolled in I found myself exclaiming “Let’s go to Almost Famous!”.

Well that’s a rather large image… How are you all? I feel an urge to blog and as it’s been a little while since I did a chatty post I thought I’d indulge you in a random stream of conciousness. PP is a lifetsyle blog after all… Uni work – I literally have so much…

However, when we go back to uni it can get a bit claustrophobic with the mounting work, considerably busier streets and a  lot more tiredness.  Matt had been to Bromley Cross on a day out with university, and suggested that we headed…

I’m 21!

I look like a monkey boy, I know. Those who follow me on twitter will now be sighing with relief that I won’t be going on about my birthday anymore! However, yes I do turn 21 today. I feel incredibly to have such lovely friends and family that not only make me feel incredibly loved…

Friends

Source I’m not sure quite where this post is going to go. All I know is that I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time, and that I read an article a few days back that summarised exactly how I was feeling. The article was about ‘drains’ and ‘radiators’… and no I’m not talking about…

Jack Spratt, Manchester

Matt and I are making out way around the various eateries in Manchester, and Jack Spratt has been on the list for a while. Every so often a book full of vouchers that lands on our doorstep, and Jack Spratt had a great deal where you could get two main meals from the A La…
