I broke my glasses on Remembrance Sunday and as they are the ones I wear most often I was pretty distraught and had to get them fixed immediately or else I wouldn't have been able to see to drive, or cook, or watch TV or anything.

Manchester Storm


Wow! The weather in Manchester tonight has been AMAZING! It started at about teatime when the sky went green - yes, green - and there was a terrific rumble of thunder.
