£2 all-day parking in Manchester so we could nip to the Whitworth to catch the last day of the mini Lucienne Day exhibition.
Plus Barbara Brown and part of the Manchester International Festival, the latter was a taster for our trip to Northlight Mill in Brierfield the following day for part of Home1947.
The (very emotional) installation here concerned the partition of India 70 years ago. It was small but beautifully formed and the Super Slow Way volunteers were fantastic, informative and we had some really interesting discussions. See more here.
We took the opportunity to nip into Burnley for coffee and cake at Little Barista (Howe Walk), and to nip to the garden centre well, it was Sunday), plants 10 for £10, just what we were after. The staff at the cafe remember us for some reason and although we already had cake we were offered a slice of their delicious cherry and almond cake on the house!
A domestic victory too, after ignoring it for a very long time, the mini beasts have accepted their bed!
I had a horrible day at the charity shop on Tuesday, I really struggled with the window - it was a war themed one, not my thing at all, but the manager wanted it as there's a local war weekend next month. However on Wednesday I spoke to an elderly lady who loved it, she held my hand for a long time as she told me how lovely it was to see the uniforms and that we had taken the time to put the display together. A number of other people told me their family stories too which was nice and made the whole thing worth it.
