Wigs and Friends

Do you ever have an incredible experience and at the end of the day think to yourself, "Well I certainly wasn't expecting that to happen today!" Those were my exact thoughts a few Sundays ago. Friends, we had, quite possibly, the perfect day! It started out with going to church service and making new friends along the way. Quite literally. Turns out a lovely elderly couple attends the same church and gets on at the same bus stop as ours. Funny right? They informed us the service was going to be a little different because that particular Sunday was the start of the Legal year. Judges and mayors would be attending in full regalia (think wigs and stately apparel). It was such a  stately sight and one we will never forget!

After the service we stayed to rub elbows with the big wigs (I TOTALLY get that idiom now!) and had deliciously fancy hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Then we headed to the Manchester Food and Drink Festival with our friends, Sam and Katie. We had pizza and Indian food and ate in the shadow of the Manchester City Council building. Once we were done there, we walked around the area. We ended our time together by going to Cloud 23 for some bread and water because everything else was too pricey. Haha! #thatbudgetlife The bar is on the 23rd floor of Beetham Tower (hence the name) and has glorious views of Manchester.
After our food feast, we walked around Manchester and Sam & Katie showed us a few places we had never been.
What a fantastic day!
