I met Abby at the station and first thing we did? We got our ears pierced! I'd wanted either my helix or rook pierced for a while so there was a spontaneous visit to Holier Than Thou for our new piercings, which thankfully didn't hurt that much.
Next thing we did was go to Afflecks which is this mini shopping emporium tucked away in Manchester. From an outside view it looks just like a couple of shops but when you go inside it stretches waay back with loads of different shops - there were shops dedicated to beanies, vintage shops, posters, and the cutest coffee shop we found, which we decided to go for a drink in.

There were a lot of Christmas markets there too which we decided to have a look round. Abby had been there previously which meant we didn't actually get lost (which I'm sure we would have if I'd been in charge) and they were really cute! I bought my mum a 'zebra' print chocolate giant marshmallow just as a small present and my sister a chocolate iPhone! I thought it was quite fitting considering she's just got an iPhone 5 and I am so, so certain she's gonna break/smash it sometime soon. Ah well, we'll see.
