A Day to Myself

It's not often it happens, but yesterday it did.  Hubby and daughter, along with a few friends, set of for Wembley for the FA Cup Final:

(We won't mention the score)

So what did I do while they were away?

Well, I pottered about the house for bit tidying and doing washing.  Then I nipped to the Post Office to post a package.  Then, I went in search of a fabric shop I had heard about:

I found Leon's Fabrics in Chorlton, which was a fabulous place, packed with loads of different fabrics and very helpful staff.  I just enjoyed looking through all their stock and I found some fabric that might be good for daughter's Victorian costume.

I came home to have a peaceful lunch, on my own.

Made a batch of fudge.  

As you do.

Then, it was time to head off into Manchester for a rehearsal for a concert.

Between rehearsal and concert I had a meal out with members of the choir. 

Good food, good conversation.

Then, after the concert, I came home to...................

(and this is the best bit)

.............. a neat and tidy house exactly as I had left it!!

Yip, yip, yipeeee!!
That fabric shop looks amazing - it looks better stocked than John Lewis used to be (and sadly is no more) in Oxford Street! I'd be as happy as a pig in muck, if there was one near me.

I'm glad you had a good day.

I thoroughly enjoyed the concert and I'm truly grateful for the welcome that I've received.


Enjoy your evening.

Yes. I'll see you tomorrow evening.

I just googled "Manchester Chorale" and there was your blog, near the top of the results.
