City & Company

Yesterday I went to Manchester, to see my best friend from Uni. I hadn't seen her since coming home so it was definitely so good to see her again, and catch up! 

I absolutely love Manchester, so much so that I will consider living there one day. I love the atmosphere, the shops, the bars/restaurants. Everything just feels so welcoming and relaxed! Anyway, I wanted to take advantage of the shops and get a few bits for Thailand. I mostly needed long skirts and tops that cover me up a little bit, because the culture is obviously a bit stricter. However I really can't stand wearing long skirts, but  I found one for £3 in Primark and adopted the 'that'll do' attitude! My priorities got a little bit mixed up though, as I spent a ridiculous amount of money on American sweets, which I partly ate whilst sitting in the sun in Picadilly Gardens, nattering away! Then in the evening, I was treated to a YoSushi :-)

Whilst I was there, I received an email telling me which school I'll be at, in Thailand. Consequently, I decided to treat myself to a Pandora charm, that I've been thinking about for ages. I bought the ship to remind me of my favourite quote, if I find it difficult when I'm out there.

A ship in harbour is safe, but that's not what ships are built for

Still haven't been to YoSushi! What is life. Love the charm and the quote! Thailand's so close now, I'm so jealous and sad :( But you'll have an amazing time and I'll force you to tell me every detail as if I were there. And to ride an elephant and take a selfie with one aha!
