Happy Birthday James! and Happy 1st Anniversary

Yesterday Doug went shopping and James visited the Manchester Art Gallery.


The Gallery is housed in yet another lovely building.  James was evicted at 5 o’ clock when it closed!


The city is full of wonderful architecture, old and new……….


…….. but it seem that more effort and thought was put into the older stuff.


In the evening we had an Italian meal – food was good but the service was poor.


After eating we went to Oscar’s Bar to meet up with Olly and Mark for a great evening.  To everyone’s surprise, it was nearly 2 o’ clock in the morning before we  left!  Thanks for a great evening guys.

Today, it’s James’ birthday and our first anniversary (where’s it gone!!!).  We’re moving ‘Chance’ up the “Rochdale 9” so it’s a sad goodbye to Castlefield for this year.


‘Chance’ in Castlefield in the shadow of the massive Beetham Tower today before moving to the water point to fill up.


  1. Happy birthday, James.
    Sorry we couldn't be with you to help on the 9, but never forget, the more work you do, the more you enjoy it!

  2. Happy birthday to James and congrats to you both for the anniversary, wow, where did the year go!

    No excuse for us forgetting Jame's birthday in future as its also Chris's too.

    Hope you both have a wonderful day.
    warm regards
    Steve & Chris
