    Cool and grey out there right now, and just started raining.

    Going to a record fair today, though won't be spending much. Just a couple if I can find something worth buying. We were undecided whether to go to Manchester or Windermere (given the weather, Lake District might not be as busy). I'll let the boss decide when she gets out of her pit.

    Manchester or Windermere are the choices? Aren't they diametrically opposed?

    I'm going to have a day out to the retail park to buy a new pair of trainers. Life is so exciting.

    In weather news, sunny and dry. 16C now rising to 21C later.

    Looks a bit brighter today - though cold. Around 11C now with a possible high of 16C and looking out there's a slight breeze. Blue sky though - and shadows on the ground - looks good to me.

    Haven't really decided what to do - there's maybe some work to do in the garden. Nothing too exciting. The last "event" a couple of days ago was taking a microwave oven to the dump! That was heavy - as is its replacement. I never was really into weight lifting - but nowadays things like that are a bit of a struggle. Big issue with the dump trip - making sure the thing didn't drop and damage the car as we got it out.

    Oh yeah, they are as different as can be. Manchester 25 miles south, Windermere 70 miles north. Manchester busy and probably difficult/expensive parking, whereas Windermere will be... who am I kidding, Windermere will be worse!

    Whichever, just a day out somewhere really. Record fair just an excuse for going.

    Good luck with the trainers search. Sports Direct probably best place to start.

    I was thinking 'Windermere - beautiful and quiet', Manchester - noisy shithole'. But I suppose it's still summer holidays so Windermere might be heaving.

    'Sports Direct' is where I am going. If there's nothing there I'll leave it. Not making two stops. Well, might get a burger for lunch.
