Wilmslow

Been over a few times these last ten years or so as one of MrsD's bessy mates lives over there. MrsD is Godmother to her daughter who was celebrating her 18th birthday with a house party in their spectacular house just outside the town center. Coincidentally i also know her mate from a long  time ago as she too is a Daltoner and went to school next door to ours. Anyway , i digress. Wilmslow is a grand little town just outside Manchester in CHESHIRE as i was politely informed by a neighbour at the party. It's part of that affluent triangle along with Alderly edge and Knutsford that contain most of Manchester's professional footballers and their professional wives.

Wilmslow is one of those towns like Harrogate that has a posh Wetherspoons. First time i went in was after a game at scum to meet up with the rest of the party to be greeted by a load of Scum fans celebrating with three bottles of champagne. One of them spotted my badge and asked if i cared to join them. I told him to keep it for his prawn sarnies before being ushered away.

Lots of Bentley and Porsche cars around the place but also a smattering of tracksuited dog owners. There are still a good few pubs and all together the place has a Better egalitarian feel than its neighbour Alderly Edge which is too engrossed in the arse of its own elitism for me.

Sunglassed leather jacketed women wander around Wilmslow simultaneously looking aloof and at home in their little leather jackets and jeans that clasp well shaped limbs and dip into calf high boots. There are bars and restaurants a plenty and a huge sainsbury where cheery young cashiers greet you with a "Hello again"  

The party began at Five and was surprisingly very enjoyable. The birthday girl herself is the spit of her mum at that age. Her mum was a tad awkward at that age with her tall slim long limbed angular theatrical but attractive looks whereas the daughter is very comfortable and assured. I guess that is the difference between a Dalton and Wilmslow upbringing. Her friends seemed good kids too. Cool indie kids with Kooky clothes all fully immersed in multimedia multi tasking activities whilst  talking about Alt=J and Metronomy amongst themselves.

About 30 other guests were made up of three generations of different folk from Huddersfield, Leicester, Manchester and Cheshire. Granddad from Huddersfield made the kids laugh and me squirm with his increasing drink intake along with wit and wisdom only a drunk granddad would get away with. I know what i would have got had i suggested the birthday girl should consider a career in stripping   .
Anyway it all finished for us around ten as we left the younger ones to it and the Father arguing with his teenage son as always to our BnB up the road.

In the Biblical sense?
Dock

It's a nice place Wilmslow but a lot of the people seem to be those social climber types. I saw Ruud Van Nistelrooy in a bar there once, FACT!

 It's a small town  

You're right Dock but it isnt as bad as Alderly Edge for that. 2/10 btw for that spot, I saw Beckham and his Mrs in Sainsbury once. They tweeted it and got 5/10

Is this your way of telling us she was really your sister?
