Cottage in the suburbs – Ashton on Mersey has some lovely housing surprises such as this little cottage on Dumber Lane, near the river.
It’s back to work for everyone today- I hope your May Day holiday weekend was as fun-packed and busy as mine- The Beat Back Soup Kitchen gig on Thursday (see last week's Mancunian Wave posts!) then a happy day in Liverpool on Friday: Matisse at the Tate, amazing Thai food at Chilli Banana on Lark Lane and a great gig at the Buyers Club – young Liverpudlian bands Mamatung and She Drew the Gun were, at times, breath-taking.
Saturday was the successful and inspiring Manchester Trades Council May Day march and associated events. Followed by my going to see ancient prog rockers Yes at the Apollo where I made some new friends - always great to see another woman into that genre- hiya Candy!
Sunday was domestic chores plus editing BDXC Communication before we went to the last evening of the Hebden Bridge Burlesque festival- all new to me and an eye opener into another world- part counter culture, par retro, part something uncategorisable.
Monday was catching up with emails and updating the Manchester People’s Assembly site, before a nice afternoon stroll in sunshine, past the above for a walk along the Mersey. So it seems that I walked along both ends of the Mersey this weekend as well as plenty of exciting activities in between. You could say that I'm tired now - maybe kinda Mersey beat? ;-) (groan...)
