As well as shaking off the post-Christmas lethargy by having a good bracing walk we also wanted to use the great lighting and weather conditions to give our new camera a Fuji X-T1 a good work out. As you can see from the images below it didn't disappoint.
The kitchen courtyard is a real gem and well worth the visit. We will be returning to try the other shops and pick up some more ice cream!

Part of the reason we did "Married with grown ups" was to make sure that turning a certain age (50) shouldn't be a barrier to anything but, I think it's safe to say like any age with a '0' on the end it is a milestone in people's lives. Viv passed that milestone in June and as I write this mine is rapidly approaching. To help celebrate this the "grown ups" booked a tour of Manchester City's ground - the Etihad Stadium which all 5 of us went on in December.
I've been to the Etihad before and whilst most of my live matches watching City were at the club's old ground at Maine Road the chance to go behind the scenes of the club's current home was something that I was really looking forward to (followed by dinner at The Smokehouse in the city centre)
