In early 2012 I bought my first (and currently only) flat. Given that it was an empty flat and I was in rented accommodation it took a ridiculously long time, so by April I was desperate to move in… the day I was due to exchange I had a crazy afternoon with expensive scarves!
So I’ve been back in Manchester properly for the first time since I went to London. 8 months is a long time in this ever changing city, and it has gone crazy.
A hideous 4 months have gone by without me posting; basically everything got very manic for a period of time… but as I write this now I am looking back with a smile, because I believe that it is all leading to a good place.
So what has changed? Well…
Bit late to the party, but cycling past the art gallery today and had to stop and take in the display for the Lost Gardens of Manchester. Really striking compared to its surroundings , and makes up a little for the disaster that is the Picadilly Gardens round the corner.
