What a busy day, I set my alarm for 6am and we left the house just after 6.35am and set off on a 50 minute journey to Manchester to catch the London train.. we left home in the dark!
Here we are having just arrived at the train station!
I just love Tom's pose!!
Manchester is in the throws of gearing up for Christmas and seeing the fairy lights on all the trees was a big treat for Tom! and the giant inflatable Santa in St. Anne's square, we saw even more of the hustle and bustle on the way home.. my dear friend She had been telling me about a German market that sets up there every Christmas.. here's a little link..

if you follow the link there s a short video at the bottom of the page!
We spent the morning showing the boys the University campus as they hadn't visited before..
Here are some gorgeous houses in the village where my daughter is staying,
they reminded me of Neapolitan ice cream!
I have DS1 to thank for these photos (and he charged me!!!!)
He has a new camera and is getting to grips working off auto..
My daughter's campus is set in over 600 acres of landscaped parkland, fields, woodlands and lakes, it boasts being the UK's largest and most beautiful campus university and every time I visit it takes my breath away.. DS1 took tons of photos but I'm only sharing a few on my crafty blog.. here is one of the Hall.. which can be hired for functions.. last time I visited it was being set up for a wedding reception, outside are beautiful lawns in front of one of the 5 lakes..
Walk in the woods!
(I'm reading that atm!! We didn't see any bears, lol.. 22 squirrel's tho.. :o)
Love this photo.. Tom had a most wonderful day it was great to see him so happy! He loves his sister very, very much, they are very close!
Waiting for chips!
My diet went out the window for one day, but it was worth it!
We went in the dark and came home in the dark!
Roll on the 15th December, altho Mr T doesn't know there's a chance his big sis might come home next weekend for a quick visit..... Sshh!!
Thanks for looking.. must get my feet back on the ground!!
