Right, back home now. And after a week of hotel breakfasts and sampling the delights of some of Manchester’s restaurants, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my weight hasn’t increased too drastically. On getting home this evening, I weiged 205.8 pounds (14 stone 9.8 pounds, 93.4kg).
 Tip: if you’re in Mancester, take a walk down Portland Street. Lots of restaurants – Chinese, Thai, Italian and Mexican.
 And if you’re stayting in Manchester, that’s a good street for hotels, too.
