Yesterday we went with Jess and her boys on a "a foodie, floating, family day out exploring the region's historic waterways". Really disappointing. It turned out to be a much delayed 20 minute canal trip from the Mark Addy to the Lowry theatre. As for the food, the kids got a carton of Vimto and a Chorley cake. Apparently it was celebrating the launch of some book. That passed me by.
Still, we had a nice time wandering around Media City and annoying the pettifogging BBC security personnel: "That is an official BBC prop".
