Premier Inn

In the afternoon after Mr C had finished his ironing and packing we headed off to Manchester where we were staying overnight because of an early flight the next morning. The SatNav took us on our normal route passed Jodrell Bank. The radio telescope’s dish was upturned and as it had just started to rain I had visions of it becoming a large swimming pool.

We arrived at our hotel at just the right time to be thinking of an evening meal. We quickly checked into our room then searched on Trip Advisor for suitable nearby places to eat. As we were doing this planes were coming in low, almost over our heads as they approached Manchester Airport’s runway for landing. We found a suitable pub just around the corner and it turned out to be cosy and friendly. The food was good and we could watch the planes with their lights all aglow as they made their final (even lower) approach to the runway.

After our meal we drove the short distance to the airport to work out where we needed to be the next morning. We had a quick nightcap in the Beefeater pub situated next door to our hotel before turning in for an early night due to our 3am start the next morning.

    i really liked this post. your description reminded me of our childhood home, not too far from the airport and its cafe, where we had a favourite chicken sandwich with some tea. several outings were thus conducted, CP. so thank you!

    What’s this? Mr C had to do his own ironing?

    With a 3 am start, I’d be off to bed early too! Safe travels.

  4. I take it you didn’t have anything pressing to do?

      I had done my packing the day before so that I didn’t get in the way. Mr C hadn’t decided what he was taking until he started his ironing!!

    you are right men who live away from home for long learn to do most of their personal jobs by themselves
