Oscar Wilde ~ De Profundis
One of the last books I finished. It is pure magic. I will love Oscar Wilde forever.
For anyone who may be interested!
I have started a separate blog, which will chronicle my time here in Mexico. I’ll still be doing random little things on here though! :)
I spent my first few days as an ex-library assistant up in Manchester with my sister. It’ll be the last chance I see her before I head to Mexico. This is what we got up to!
We ate a lot of chocolate, had a baby joint whilst listening to part one of a David Bowie interview on the radio (it was jokes), then we flopped into the living room where I did this:
The next day, I had a big fat lie in until about 11am. I cleaned my sisters shameful kitchen, we did lunch, and went to the Lowry exhibition which was lovely. I’m glad that there is a 20 minute film to watch about LS Lowry before you head in. I was quite touched by the kind of person he seemed to be. Walking onwards we found a Mary McCartney exhibition, which was seriously not interesting (sorry girl, but pictures of celebrity friends aren’t that great). We blitzed it over to the Imperial War Museum, bush bash bosh, then we were on a bus to the almighty TRAFFORD CENTRE. It reminded me of being in Russia.
I experienced nothing but bewilderment walking around this place. This where people go to shop. Argh. Luckily, we were there to use the cinema, where I saw Les Misérables again (most beautiful film ever and I love Hugh Jackman!), and paid for my sister so that I know she had seen it before she died.
Today, I lay in bed with Snowy (the cat) of Salford for a while.
Then I walked into town to meet my sister where she showed me the John Ryland Library. So beautiful.
She also took me to the Public Library which is just down the road. You can’t keep me away from any library for long…
It’s half 2 in the morning and I just needed to unwind after having my train delayed, and I got home only an hour ago! And guess what, it doesn’t even matter, I don’t have to get up for work anymore!
