I’m currently sat on a train heading to London so that Kath can get a US visa so that we are able to travel to New York later this year. Managed to get cheap Virgin First Class tickets cheaply so enjoying a larger seat and a free coffee.
We had an excellent day out yesterday starting out with drinks in the lovely Winter Garden at the Refuge. We sat and enjoyed an old fashioned pre show.
The main event of the day was a trip to see the Book of Mormon at the Manchester Palace Theatre. It was the most funny show I’ve ever seen and I would highly recommend it!
Ivy gin and tonic
Post show Kath had made a dinner reservation at the Ivy in Spinningfields. Neither of us had been before and you have to book weeks if not months in advance. I wasn’t sure if the food would live up to the hype, fortunately it did. I had a tuna carpaccio starter. Followed by blackened cod served on a banana leaf. We started with a Ivy special gin and tonic at the bar, then had a bottle of Cava with the meal. The food was exquisite so many flavours, and the service was pretty special too. I mentioned to the waitress that it is Kath’s birthday next week and she brought out a little cake
