The Weekend Blog | Comic Con

Stormtroopers at Liverpool Comic Con 2016

I began the week with a trip to Manchester to see my solicitor. As I had taken the whole day off I decided to make the most of the trip so Tyrone and I went out for lunch and did a spot of shopping. We had a nose around the Northern Quarter, which is my favourite part of the city, and called into see my brother who works in one of the bookshops in the area.

Then on Tuesday it was back to work for me after 11 days off, and it was my first experience of taking two trains to get to the office. It sounds a lot worse than it actually is; both the train journeys are really short. I’m getting back from work about 5 minutes later than I did when I lived in the city centre so I can’t complain. It’s worth it.

It’s worth it because on Friday night I bought beers, ordered in pizza and crashed out on my camping chairs (our sofa still hasn’t arrived) watching Breaking Bad and Gogglebox. I haven’t had such an enjoyable and relaxed Friday night in months, because every time we tried to chill out we would be rudely interrupted by one of our neighbours.

More nights like this, please!

Today Tyrone and I went to MCM Comic Con Liverpool. We actually had weekend tickets but we managed to do everything we wanted to do today, and as the schedule for Saturday and Sunday are virtually identical we probably won’t go back tomorrow.

I’ll be sharing a post on Thursday all about Comic Con so I will tell you more about it then, but here is a preview of my favourite cosplayer of the day – Ewok carrying a Stormtrooper!

Have a great weekend!

Enjoyed this post? Why not share it...

    Glad to hear you’re enjoying yourself in the new house! I keep freaking out about all the noises I’m hearing, like our radiator and such, when Andy’s not in on a night. It’s definitely better than hearing other people’s music though!

    That cosplay is so amazing! I didn’t see those guys, saw quite a few other good ones though. It’s a shame I didn’t see you there, but with the amount of people it would definitely have been very unlikely. When I saw the queue to go in on the morning I was pretty surprised. Didn’t expect there to be as many people as there was. Hopefully next year it’ll be bigger – we’ll definitely be going again as it’s one of the closer ones for us.

      Same here! For the first week I thought someone was breaking in when in fact it was just the pipes.

      I literally had to chase those guys for a photo! But yes, I’m definitely going to go next time. I’m sure it will be bigger and better.

  2. So pleased you’re settling into your new home, I used to get the train into Liverpool for work, love the city.

      It’s such a wonderful city. I’m sad I had to move out of the centre but I love the benefits of being so close to the city.

  3. I’m happy for you. The commute sounds ok and having a house it’s so much better. I can’t wait to read about your visit to Comic Con. x

  4. The plan which appears to be a perfect resolution for one downside may noot be so for an additional.
