I don't remember many specifics from my high school days however there is one lesson that is stuck in my memory. It was a dark, miserable Wednesday. At 10.30 myself and 20 other pupils huddled into a little classroom ready for our RE lesson. This lesson was different to the others as we had company and that usually meant doing very little work. They were a team of youth workers from the local church. At the end of said lesson they went around the classroom and one by one asked each pupil what their goal in life was, a focusing exercise if you will. Between the nurses, the lawyers and a couple of farmers I simply replied 'I want to go the the Maldives'. Everybody laughed, but lo and behold the man upstairs was listening.
As you probably know by now, I'm a huge burger fan... One of my close friends called me ‘burger girl’ at weekend which I found both delightful and mortifying. I am admittedly a little bit of a burger snob. If it isn't up to scratch you know about it. As soon as I heard that the London based Burger chain Byron were opening a little branch in Manchester I was itching to see what all the fuss was about.
