You really forget what it used to be like to be surrounded by smokers, right?
But on a trip to a traditional area of Spain last week, it was brought home how far the United Kingdom has come this way. Whenever we ate out, people at adjacent tables lit up.
While not completely against smoking, I always felt that smoke around the food was a bad idea and welcomed the ban.
I know it's cultural when you're abroad, and that's just life, but I was very thankful that I could get in Manchester and get some fresh air!
