Flights of Fancy

william scotton's insight:

As winter draws to a close and the first few beams of sunlight begin to peer their ever so cautious heads through the cracks once more, Britain is dreaming. The sun, the sea, the surf. The glory of the freedom and the absence of ikea desks and macs. Emails will go unanswered, spreadsheets left blank, caffeine deprived colleagues clawing at the walls, wondering why they can barely stay awake past lunch. In a sudden moment, all the hassle of working life will melt away as all the gentleman in the midlands pack their suitcases and while away the hours before their flight with the lovely escorts near Birmingham airport. Once the plane has finally taken off, a smile settles over their lips as their week of relaxation begins.

In theory at least. The problem is that hard working adults aren’t the only ones with summer holidays. Their fresh, innocent hope is always crushed after a few minutes on the plane, when the screaming starts, the chocolate melts over little hands and the whining begins. Children are one of life’s great pleasures. The sweet laughter of an infant is like peals of a sweet bell, calling all to marvel and worship at the altar of human wonder. Their miniature clothes the very model of cuteness, their tiny smiles serene and angelic. This is the impression that spending 30 minutes with nieces and nephews suggests. It takes just 5 on a plane, between June and September to shatter it forever. It will be replaced with a nightmarish vision of sticky jam covered fingers, high pitched squeals and pleading parents, their eyes crusted with sleep, as they try in vain to bargain with the irrational beast that will haunt them until their dying day.

After enjoying a fantastic flight, the poor worker can look forward to relaxing. Except children are like swarms of insects, infesting anything of interest until all that was once joyous is ridden with their little burrows. Like insects, their annoyance is minimal in small numbers, where they can be brushed from the psyche like so many little ants from a picnic basket. It is in numbers, when their terrible chittering reaches fever pitch, that things become unbearable. Even the locations that should be safe like museums and the theatre- places few whiny children would ever want to go- suffer, as parents try and educate their children by dragging them to places of cultural relevance. Inevitably this just causes resentment, and the child does tend to sulk a lot when dragged somewhere they don’t want to go.

God help the parents themselves. They know that they are serving an 18 year sentence. For 18 years, there will be no relaxing dip in the pool, no little dinner for two, nothing alone. That pre-holiday ritual with the Birmingham airport escorts? No longer allowed, he’s a father now. It doesn’t matter if he has split up with his wife or if she has wronged him, once he has children certain doors are closed to him forever. It’s why couples go away from short breaks to little cathedral towns and look forward to it as if they’ve been invited to the Oscars. When life is a perpetual cycle of stress, plain cobbled streets and shops that don’t sell bears, toys or tiny clothing, are the thing of dreams.

Ordinary Fans are Being Priced out of the Game

william scotton's insight:




Manchester is quickly becoming one of the country’s most important economic centres. Despite competition from Liverpool and Birmingham, Manchester has risen to a level that places it amongst the forerunners of the British financial industry. Obviously, it is still trailing far behind the City and there is little chance of London losing its much coveted crown, but the race for second place has been hotly contested for years. The financial sector will be celebrating their victory with all the usual trappings: fine wine, expensive dinners, big nights out and Manchester Victoria station escorts, picked up on their way into the city centre.

Of course, one of the big financial powers in Manchester in the moment is Manchester City FC. With their billionaire owner, they are causing quite a stir by splashing some serious cash. Last year, that investment finally paid off and they became the champions of England. They have since pumped large sums of money into local infrastructure as well: building a multi-million pound training complex that has employed a large number of people and helped Manchester to rival London as the country’s greatest centre for footballing excellence. The likes of Chelsea and Arsenal can only look on in jealousy at the facilities being provided by this new surge of economic clout.

The fans may not be quite so happy with the way things are going though. In a bid to increase profitability, both clubs are putting up ticket prices, which many are finding a bitter pill to swallow. There used to be a time where a fan could come in by train, spend a little time with the escorts in Manchester Victoria  station and go to see the big game. Now they can barely afford the ticket, let alone some company, food or travel. Football used to be the entertainment of the masses, but now it’s just a middle class hobby. Stadiums full of fairweather fans, silent and passionless, robbing the ground of its atmosphere and life. The gentrification of the game has been much maligned but there is some legitimacy in it, as many of the lifelong fans now find themselves trapped outside the gates, staring in. They’ve been priced out, unable to afford the staggering high prices that come with success. It’s a sad day when the fans can’t even attend their own games, but that is the growing trend as more clubs veer towards “financial independence” Perhaps, rather than isolating their core fanbase, they could try giving players and agents less money and taking the game back to its roots.

How to Impress a Beautiful Lady this Christmas

william scotton's insight:

Yorkshire is an area that knows good food. They know how the gravy should be- thick and meaty, with 1 or 2 solid flavours in it- and they know that you never, ever, ever throw tsma scraps away. That’s for silly southern softies, not for real food lovers. If you’re having a Yorkshireman over for christmas lunch, or you’re enjoying the day with a West Yorkshire escort, you’ll need to make damn sure that the food is all top quality. Bizarrely enough, it’s the dessert that catches most men out. They’ve had plenty of practice with joints of meat, they know  how to make a good roast spud, they can even handle a cold meat platter for the starter. When it comes to dainty little pastries and chocolate though, they’re all at sea.

For an absolute beginner, salted caramel chocolate pots are truly ideal. The luxuriously soft texture of the two fillings give the dish a very extravagant feel, but in reality its an absolute breeze to make. The best thing about it is probably that you can make it well before the actual event, so there’s need to worry about ovens beeping and pies burning whilst you’re meant to be enjoying your meal. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and wait for the perfect time to bring your little pots of joy out of the fridge.

For those that are a little more adventurous, a fig and almond tart is sure to draw some admiring looks if you can pull it off. West Yorkshires escorts will love it, as it’s tasty enough to be cooked by a professional chef, but not the sort of thing they would normally get in a restaurant whilst being wined and dined. The secret to the recipe is to get good, ripe, sticky figs. Most people that think they don’t like the fruit have only ever tasted ones which were artificially forced to ripen or picked too early. The oozing, toffee like textures and hues of a ripe fig work beautifully with shortcrust pastry and nuts to create a rich, dense dessert that’s perfect with a good dollop of thick cream. A dessert wine would also go nicely and if you’re into that sort of thing, something quite fresh and zesty like a sauternes would be ideal.

For the confident chef, nothing screams impressive like the perfect balance of fruit and confectionary, of sweetness and tart delight, of light and dark. There are few dishes that can rival a perfectly made cake, covered in thin sheets of perfectly tempered chocolate. Any real food lover will know the immense skill and effort that goes into making a light, fluffy sponge that can hold its own without being too dense or too stiff. It must be inviting, yet firm, yielding, yet crumbly, plain and yet full of subtle flavour. Around it, like sheets of perfectly crafted plate mail, sit thin layers of chocolate that has been tempered and worked into a hard coating that would normally be impossible at such a thickness. It breaks with a satisfying snap, and represents nothing less than a truly mastery of confection. Buried deep within all of this, lies a well of intense flavour, a conserve made from blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries, normally with a little hint of liquor. The smoothness of the chocolate and the cake, with the sharpness of the fruit, forms an unbeatable combination that will wow any guest, no matter how well they have eaten in the past. Few men that entertain escorts in West Yorkshire know how to pull off such a stunning end to a meal, but those that do find themselves almost universally admired.

The Idea of a Holiday Keep us all Going Through Tough Times

william scotton's insight:

As the winter starts to fade away and the first signs of spring tentatively poke their heads out to see if they’ve got the all clear, it seems as if everyone’s thoughts are on the summer holidays. It’s that glorious time of the year when we all get away from the stress and hassle of our everyday lives and get to spend a few hours with any one of the beautiful Manchester Airport escorts before we jet off to our fantastic destination.

It’s a fantasy that gets us through the cold months  and the rain, the spark of life that lights us up on a dark day. When the sun is setting before 5 every day, we certainly need something to cheer us up. It gets us through the board meetings full of stats, figures and about five minutes of relevant content in a two hour long session. God help the man who invented powerpoint if I ever find him... After the toil, we just need something to look forward to, a great objective that isn’t related to sales figures and word counts. A sunny little retreat in Italy sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Or perhaps Greece is more your thing. The island of Rhodes is a gorgeous paradise perched in the middle of a crystal blue sea. It has everything you’ve ever dreamed of. The nightlife is cheap, varied and intense, with sensational bars and laid back pubs serving ice cold lager on a hot evening. The restaurants embrace traditional greek dishes to serve up an amazing mix of lamb, beef, cumin, coriander and mint. Cooked to a mouthwatering softness, one of the island’s main treats is shanks falling off the bone, cooked for so long in the traditional ovens that the meat is gorgeously tender.  The locals are so welcoming and keen to show visitors the wonders of their spectacular island. The men will tell you all the best places to eat, which shops sell the best souvlaki and which pubs have the crispest beers for a great price. The women are so gorgeous that you’ll wonder why you ever felt the need to spend an afternoon with those Manchester Airport escorts. They know about all the best places to go for a romantic afternoon, or which beach balances the best sunbathing with easy access to the water so that you can cool off. Obviously you’re going to want to take a dip in the beautiful azure sea; you can go in a pool anytime but there’s nothing quite like the sun on your back and the sand between your toes to make you truly relax and let go of all that stress from.

Asian Studies at Manchester University Can Give you in-Depth Knowledge of the East

william scotton's insight:

Sometimes you may have a hankering for something, or something a little more exotic. From the Far East you can gather inspiration for everything in life, from religion and cooking, through to interior design or even business practices. If you are lucky enough you would have studied East Asian studies at Manchester University and gained an in depth knowledge of what they believe and how things work, however you have never had the money to travel to see the sights for yourself. Well, if you know where to look, you may find that a little slice of Asia may be attainable here, in Manchester. Asian escorts in Manchester can spend time with you, doing whatever it is that you have in mind. From helping with your studies or teaching you different cooking techniques, or even just dining with you to then perform a lovely, erotic massage n you later on in the evening, these are girls that may not be able to put out the fire that burns within you for all things Asian inspired, but she will definitely fan the flames until you are an even bigger fan!

 

Asian escorts in Manchester offer so many great things, enough to make all your fantasies come true. Perhaps you have always lusted after the sensuality that these girls possess (the Kama Sutra wasn’t written in the East by accident you know!) then a date with one of these girls will be a dream come true. The girls on offer in Manchester are all available for outcalls, so you can wine and dine her at your favourite curry place, or you can try something a little lower key, by cooking for her at your place. You can meet at your local bar in town for a few drinks to get to know each other, or you can meet her for a quick one hour lunch date near your work. Whatever works for you. There are also options for incall visits, so you can call into her place if you have flatmates that you don’t want to introduce her to, or maybe you want a change of scenery. Or, for a really special night, you can book a hotel room, where you can learn all you want from this gorgeous girl, and not have to clean up the next day!

 

All it takes to find Asian escorts in Manchester is a short online search. You will find that there are so many wonderful and gorgeous girls, so it may take a little work to find the perfect one for you, but she will well be worth it. Asia and the Far East are easily found on your back door step, if only you know where to look!

Have a good meal before a night out with Wigan escorts

william scotton's insight:

When it comes to the festive period, food is definitely a huge focus. The turkey, the goose, all the trimmings, mince pies, sausage rolls, christmas puddings... The list goes on and on. Once the day is over though, food seems to drop off of the radar, which is odd seeing as this is the time of year that will traditionally stir memories of over indulgence and cries of dismay from dieters when January rolls around. Yet no one ever thinks of what they eat on New Year’s Eve. For many, it’s just a chance to get something to soak up all the alcohol, before they meet their stunning Wigan escorts and head out for the night. Whilst there’s nothing wrong with that, a good New Year’s meal can set a great evening.

It can form the basis of celebration: a delicious dinner before heading out to party all the night away. In this case, it’s important to balance the jubilant atmosphere with good sense and stay away from anything too rich. That triple maple, pecan and almond cheesecake may be dripping with yummy goodness, but is it going to look so good regurgitated and splattered over the floor? To prevent unnecessary queasiness and keep it all down, revellers should look towards something relatively simple and fresh. A salad might seem rather boring to many but, when properly dressed and balanced it’s one of the great culinary delights. Something suitably special would be fried chorizo and toasted hazlenuts, on a bed of rocket, dressed with Damson Vinegar and the juices from the meat. It’s suitably filling and substantial without being bloating or too fat filled.  That’s good news for those that intend to drink a lot of lager or have plans with a pair of nice escorts in Wigan: no one wants to sport a bloated beer belly when out with lovely ladies.

Once out, many can look forward to a greasy kebab, cheesy chips and some interesting bar snacks. All those things will somehow seem delicious at the time, and that’s all part of the strange ritual of getting drunk. This isn’t an excuse to eat poorly on the day itself though. Comfort food and simplicity are key, but leftover scraps of grey, suspicious meat in cold hard pitta is strictly off limits, less the contents of the previous night are  tempted to rise once more. Buying a good glazed ham a day or two before will mean that the awkward trip to the shops, in the bright air that stings eyes, won’t be necessary. Knocked down with some oven chips and a pair of fried eggs, this is a proper robust meal to kill off that hangover. Those entertaining escorts in Wigan will probably want to go for something a little more classy. A full, fresh piece of chicken will be perfect: suitably elegant and restrained, but no boring and still substantial enough to fight off the throbbing headache.
