Anyway, my worries abated as I realised that this meant that hubby and I could go out on our own for the first time in ten months!
We booked a lovely restaurant in Didsbury and, since the tram network has been extended across Manchester, we decided to use the tram to get there thus enabling us both to drink alcohol and be really bad parents.
This involved changing trams at the Cornbrook stop.
This is where I realised that there is a tram law which I have been subjected to many times, but I'm not sure if anyone has recorded it.
"I'm going to publish it, so it's mine" I told hubby.
So here it is:
"A tram for every other possible line will pass you before the one you want arrives."
We saw two Altrincham trams, two Manchester Airport and one Eccles before an East Didsbury tram arrived. And the same thing happened on our journey back!
In fact, when I think about it, every time I've stood in the city centre waiting for my tram, several others go past for every other line before the one I want.
Now there's a law about it, it won't be so frustrating, will it?
