Well almost, as tonight we were heading up to Manchester It was going to be a mad day today. I was up at 5.30am. I had a cup of tea (I really can't function till I've had that first cuppa), then after a quick check on Facebook and the DIS, I popped to Asda to get some shopping in for the girls. Once all the food and alcohol (they're so their mothers' daughters ) had been put away, I then headed over to Coventry to take my mum shopping. Next up was my hair appointment, closely followed by my nail appointment The afternoon was spent finishing off the packing and tidying up, then after many hugs with the girls, around 6.45pm we headed up the M6 to Manchester We had booked a room at the Premier Inn at the Trafford Centre for a change. It only cost £29 in the Premier Inn sale, and we thought it would be nice to spend the evening before at our favourite champagne bar at the Trafford Centre We arrived around 8.15pm after an uneventful drive, and once we had dropped off our luggage in our room, a drinkypoo or two called us After a couple of drinks, we went back to the room and were off to the land of nod around 10.30pm Tomorrow ~ Orlando, Here we come !!!
