The last couple of months have been a whirlwind. Have been working long hours to try and get a new version of the companies website up and running. I hav ereally busted a gut to get it up and running, even working weekends to try and hit the November deadline.
It was my birthday on the 25th and I celebrated it big style.
Firstly the weekend before Phil got me tickets to see the Smashing
Pumpkins at the Apollo in Manchester. I had been a big fan when I was a
teenager but never saw them so was a real treat. Billy Corgan is an
interesting chap, he has real stage presence. Unfortunately thought
they did play a lot of songs I knew they also played an awful lot of
material from an upcomming album. Avant Guard is the best description I
can think of. After the gig Phil and I got the train to Cheadle Hulme
and had a Curry at the Garam Massala. All in all a really nice night.
When we she finally disembarked (not de-plained!) we drove
back to my place quickly changed and went out for a meal at the bulls
Head. We both had fish and shared a bottle of wine. It was a very
relaxed and enjoyable evening.
Saturday Kath and I went for a walk around the Christmas market
in Wilmslow. There wasn't much to see really, nothing like the market in
Manchester. We did however go and try the new Greek restaurant, the
Stolen Lamb. Can highly recommend the Mezze there, it was delicious.
Saturday evening Kath and I went on a public transport adventure
taking the 378 bus to Davenport, then walking to the Kathmadu
restaurant. Bruce, Nina, Phil, Caroline, Jo and Holly all met us there
for some Nepalese curry. I had a lovely sizzling mix grill with spicy
sauce and rice. Was good to see everyone and catch up. Nina and Bruce
gave us a lift home, which was really nice of them.
Sunday Kath and I went for a walk along the canal and Middlewood
way in higher Poynton which was really nice. The air was fresh and cool
though a little cold it was nice to get out of the house. After the
walk we went round to my parents to say hello, they were pleased to see
us. Having a nice chat in the living room by the fireplace.
Good times, wonderful food and excellent company cant really ask for more.
