On Thursday night, we went back into Manchester and had dinner with my Mum's Sister and her Husband, Susan and Peter. It was great to catch up with them again, we are lucky enough to catch up with them every couple of years, usually on holidays. It always amazes me how much beer Peter can drink, by the time I had finished my first pint Peter was on his second and itching for a third. I was lucky enough that there was a city game on the weekend and they invited me along, so that should be heaps fun. We ended up going out with Jenny and Rachael again later that night; Ami had her first experience of the Stockport night club. She was amazed at how short girls can wear their skirts, one of the funniest moments of the night was when Ami came running towards me, I thought there must have been something wrong, but she exclaimed "I have just seen the shortest skirt of my life"
The next day we went to the Trafford Centre with Claire, Leilia and Hugo. This place puts Chadstone to shame, it is like a theme park and it's massive. With every brand name you can think off, they even have the ultimate mobile phone, which is made with you choice of Gold, Platinum or Silver, with prices ranging from £2000-12000, for a mobile?? What would you do if you lost it?
Spent the night chatting with Wayne and Claire, we had a great laugh, both Wayne and Claire have a dirty sense of Humor.
Saturday night went to Phil's 50th and had a ball, My dad had sent some hilarious photos over of when they were about 19 to 25. They are quite rude with a lot of nudity, none of my dad and Phil thankfully. Altogether on of the older ladies there, who knew my mum and dad, and she had a photo of my mum bottom when she was at a fancy dress party wearing a playboy outfit...she still carries it in here purse to this day because her husband thinks it was a photo of her, she still hasn't told him...Anyway, some of the photos my dad sent were of when Phil and My Dad, were judging a wet t-shirt contest at a pub, we it must have started out as a wet t-shirt contest, but it ended on full on nudity
Sunday was a big day, Said happy birthday to Phil, then went over to Susan's and Peters, they get to the pub about 1 a full 2 hours before the match starts to get their 4 pints in. It was a totally different experience to Man U was, I was down with the fans, drinking and laughing.The stadium was incredible, it was cold though and was thoroughly soaked when walking to the stadium; City played crap and lost 1 nil to Middleburgh, who had rested half their first team. I really have to thank Susan and Peter for going out of their way to arrange the game, it was so much fun. I'll cya in Bali in December...
