My trip to the UK

Sorry, this particular post is not about Madeline, though I miss her very much! I am currently in Manchester, UK, heading home tomorrow. I’m on a work trip but got to see a variety of sights while I’ve been out here, including Yorkminster, Clifford’s Tower, and Wayne Manor from the most recent Batman movie.

College of Costume? Really? And the name implies there are *multiple*?
