Christmas Do

Dad’s packing his bags tonight for a trip down to Alderley Edge in the morning – we’ve got a Team Meeting tomorrow, but it’s really just an excuse to go on the Christmas Do in Manchester. We’re off to somewhere in Chinatown for that traditional Chinese Christmas Meal, and copious quantites of alcoholic beverages. There’ll be a rather shorter meeting on Friday morning before a long trip back to frozen north – there’s another upgrade on at the weekend so I’ll be working Saturday again.

Angela and Megan went to Braehead today, for some more Christmas Shopping and to meet up with Aunty Laura who’s up from Leeds for a few days. I think they had a good time, but they were definitely all shopped out when they got back – Megan even went to bed early, which is almost unheard of. 🙂

Here’s a couple more photos from the big bang on Sunday – one of the damage to the Northgate building and another of the building and the fire as it burned. Makes you realise just how different things might have been if this had happened during the working week…
