Manchester, i stand with you.

My words can not heal. My voice may not be heard. But i shall write. I shall write to allow the few who may see this to remember the good things about the Manchester Arena, about Manchester.

As i watch the footage appear again and again i can pinpoint the seats in which i have sat. The exact area where i stood with my sister as we danced our butts of to the best Concert I’ve ever attended – Olly Murs. The seats where i sat with my siblings and sang along with the finalists of X factor. The atmosphere of true happiness felt by an entire arena.  Read more

Roseberry Topping is described by the national trust as a ‘distinctive and iconic landmark.’ This is due to its shape as a result of geological fault and a mining collapse in 1912. It is just 1,049 feet (320m) high, but don’t let this deceive you. Believe me. I’ve walked/climbed a few things in my life so far, one being Mount. Helvellyn in the Lake District (age 10) and in my opinion Roseberry Topping is still a challenge. I don’t know how many routes up there are but the one we naturally took following from the car park hits quite fast.
