yesterday Taryn and I decided to do a gallery visit to Manchester rather than a shopping trip. we started out at the Manchester Art Gallery, great exhibition about the history of Manchester, then lunch, and in our usual 'just our luck' way, we walked to the corner house where it was gallery change over day - in all the exhibitions, so nothing to see there, and we didn't fancy any of the films on. came back through primark, and didn't spend a single penny, then on our way back to the car park at the MEN decided to check out URBIS - passed it loads of times but never been in - WOW! it was fantastic! I recommend the place to anyone passing by, just for the funky building and weird cable car style lift!
top floor was dedicated to Manchester born fashion designer Matthew Williamson: Ten Years in Fashion -loved this design board, and the floating dismembered body's showing off the outfits that would never fit me!
the bottom floor was How manga took over the world - I do like a lot of the imagery used in manga, but this had to be my favourite picture in the exhibition, as I am THE WORLDS NUMBER 1 Star Wars fan!! woohoo!!!!
SO, overall, good day had by us both, both very tired and content when we got home, loads of leaflets collected and postcards purchased! all in all this has turned out to be quite a good week off work! please don't make me go back!!!!!
