A hop, skip and a jump to Manchester

Well I’ve finally got myself a job here in Cardiff so money is good lately, I’m not worrying about the bugger. This also means that I can afford to take a trip down to Manchester to visit my best friend of 5 years. It was lovely to be re-united after so long.

Whilst in Manchester we went to the local History museum, where yes, once again I saw some more Dinosaur fossils (this time it was a T-Rex, crikey)

But anyway, enough of my Dino-talks. (for now at least)

Whilst being in the Museum I was lucky enough to stumble across an Egyptian section! It was fabulous and I got to see many mummies and lots more heiroglyphs, so it really did work out for the best in the end!

It was really lovely to be in another museum and to still achieve the same results from my research, and even here I managed to get up close and personal with a lot more mummies (who had terrible bunions), and some very beautiful and very clear hieroglyphics. This provided me with great research however I just wish that I could understand what they were talking about! Then I wandered into the gift shop…

I stumbled across this little beauty! I took it home and instantly tried to translate it all, but it still didn’t really make sense..
