Well, it seems there's nobody skilled (or cheap, more likely) enough in Manchester to do what needs doing next week so I'm on my way up on Sunday evening and spending the week flooring. Unfortunately, I'll be sans bike.
Will be staying fairly central. Any good curry houses worth checking out? Decent pubs where I can try out some northish ales? What's the name of the chin-stroker cinema there? Ive always wanted to visit so might take in a suitably chin-stroking film.
I'd ask if anyone was up for a beer but I fear I'd be setting myself up to be disappointed by noone wanting one.
