Welcome and Happy new year 2017!
Did you have a good Christmas and new year? At Christmas, we spent the first hour opening presents, followed by a scrummy cooked breakfast. Then for the rest of the day, playing games, watching films (and the Queen’s speech!) and generally relaxing. Later in the afternoon, Neil and I shared cooking Christmas dinner, which was delicious!
Every year, we tend to go away for a few days and this year, during Christmas and new year, we visited York. York has to be one of my favourite places, to go for a mini break in the UK. It’s full of history and is such a fascinating city. This time we went for a guided tour around the cathedral. It was actually really interesting and our ticket is valid for twelve months, so we’ll definitely be going again, perhaps during the summer.
We also went to the Yorkshire Soap Company, which is so lush and magical. I just love the shop interior and of course, the arrangements of soaps and other bathroom toiletries. When people say they’d like to open a coffee shop when they retire, for me, it would have to be a soap shop like the Yorkshire Soap Company! Oh yessss!!
Here are a few photographs I took, whilst on my mini break in York.
Happy new year 2017
Have a great week! 😉
