The Weekend Blog | Comic Con
12th March 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!
