The last day off before…

Well, alright, strictly it isnt, given that Thursday and Friday next week are regarded as my days off for the week, with my actual holiday starting on Saturday, but lets face it, I’ll have stopped working by then, so it will feel like I’m on holiday anyway. In fact, this time next week I’ll already be at Manchester Airport, though in the Radisson hotel there, not the airport lounges! Dont think I’ve ever stayed at an airport hotel in this country, even though I have stayed at a good number nearby to them in the US in my time. Quite simple, they are usually cheaper than the downtown hotels (especially the budget brands) which suits my pocket perfectly, and to be honest, getting into the big city from these sites is rarely tricky.

The difference this time, is that the Radisson is literally within the airport building, you enter it from the skywalk running between the terminals, instead of my usual site, with a short shuttle bus ride to the hotel, from where you can usually see the airport, though generally not hear much, these places are well insulated for good reason! Still, it will be nice, though slightly strange, just to have a very short walk to the terminal on Saturday morning.

But anyway, more on that next Friday I suspect, including a room review if you’re unlucky lol! I think everything is as sorted as it can be, including the rail ticket there.

So, as I say, in a sense, today was my last day off, got 5 days in a row after this at work, so used it as a chance to get things sorted. Oh, alright, I got the need for some air this afternoon, and headed into town. Didnt look like I was going to end up with anything for a while, but in the end…I cracked! All charity shop stuff, all a bargain price. 2 tops, 2 pairs of shoes, total expense £19 in a total of 3 charity shops. One things for sure, they cost more than that originally! Happy day…

So yes, as you’ve guessed, this is the last blog for a while. Indeed, it might be next Friday at Manchester Airport before you get another one, though you might be (un)lucky and get one before then, but certainly not before next Wednesday. You can stop cheering now lol!

The video, maybe I should have saved this for next Friday, but then if I dont get time to do one, you’d miss it, so…
