Since moving to Uni, I have definitely realised that I much prefer a city. I love the atmosphere, the fast paced environment, the shops and the anonymity it provides. Having said that, I didn't go yesterday to be alone. I went to visit a good friend from my degree course who happens to live in Manchester.
After walking through my own town's beautiful park, I traveled via train to Manchester. I had been feeling a little run down from working so much and doing so little on days off, so a friendly face and gossip was most definitely welcomed. We spent the entire day shopping, talking, eating and drinking. It was really perfect. I can honestly say I just let things be. We went for lunch somewhere I'd never been because that's her favourite place, and then went for cocktails in the afternoon, just because we could. Although, after hardly consuming much alcohol for a few years, a single drink now can make me quite merry and as soon as I walked out of the bar, I casually walked into the curb and tripped, leaving us both hysterical. Smoooooth Samantha ;)
I stayed until late so persuaded her to try Yo Sushi - sharing dishes, laughing and putting the world to rights - before returning home with the company of the 'We Will Rock You' musical soundtrack. I enjoyed the day so much, and feel proud to say that I did not count a single calorie. 
A perfect city and a brilliant friend, were definitely needed and appreciated. This is my idea of a good life.
