A nation of shoppers
It amazes me to find how many people are in the shops seeking out bargains. I understand there were folks queuing outside Next at dawn on Boxing Day. Good luck to them, wild horses would not have dragged me out of bed let alone the house at that time of day.
Following a blustery and late arrival in Manchester, the weather has been reasonable. It might be cold but at least it is mostly dry and the company is as warm as ever.
