Weekend Snaps...



Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend. I had a fabulous time over in Manchester. We did a lot of eating, drinking and shopping. The highlight of the trip was really for hubby as he had match tickets for Old Trafford yesterday.



Philip soaking in a bit of the atmosphere!!





He has followed the team since he was about seven so loves to get over to the games when  he can. I was delighted with all the shops at The Trafford Centre, and even more thrilled to pick up a leather jacket from Zara that I had been eyeing up for a while.




It's actually a great piece for the price as I had been looking for ages for a nice style and they were very expensive in other shops.




We had a lovely Italian meal and some riverside drinks by the canal near our hotel. I enjoyed the weekend immensely even though it was my first time at such a big game! My ears are still a little delicate this morning from all the chanting going on around me yesterday!!




Hope you all have a good week! We are gearing up over here for St Patricks day which falls on a Saturday this year, so a great weekend is in store!!

Take care!

  14. Hi Anne
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great to hear from someone new. Looks like you had a great weekend in Manchester. Love the leather jacket. I picked a few good things from Zara last season after not popping in their for so long. Now I need to track down my nearest store here in the US to see whats new. Your blog looks just the kind of thing I like - food, family, fashion - perfect!

  16. So pleased you enjoyed your trip to Manchester and you treated yourself to a great jacket too! It's impossible for me to go to Zara, Trafford Centre or City Centre without buying something - two great branches with so much choice.
