The weather was just right, nice and sunny, but not too hot. We had no particular plan, just to meander around the streets and enjoy the sights. One of our group
despite her advancing years had never been to the city before.
We hadn't ventured too far before we felt the need for refreshments so a detour into Kennedy's ( one of my favourite haunts) for a bite of lunch
Which went down very well
We did walk the prettiest section of the city walls which takes you around the back of the Minster
Then a visit to the Minster itself.
I love this building
One of my favourite parts is the Chapter House - a circular room within the Minster where the day to day business of the Minster was run. It has this fantastic tiled floor
and an incredible vaulted ceiling
No visit to York would be complete without a visit to Betty's Tearoom in St Katherine's Place , where afternoon tea was served just as it should be.
A great day out that I am sure will be repeated.
I have not got much sewing dome this month, but the renovations have now been done
(1st phase 😳 )and DD and SIL have now settled in.
I did make this little caddy at our group
Rushden Lakes development has now opened.
there is a Boardwalk area overlooking the lake, and you can hire a pedalo, kayak or canoe if you want to venture out on the water.
A few purchases may have been made. Well, it would be rude not to 😜
Mr T has been busy in the garden building a bin store for the ugly wheelie bins that our council uses.
Plants have been purchased
As I said, not much sewing but three knitting finishes ready for the arrival of Grandchild number 3
which will be Darling Daughter's first so there is much excitement and preparation but hopefully he/she will not make an appearance before Sunday as I am doing my annual stint at the
Festival of Quilts working on the
Kids Quilts stand with my friends from New Zealand.
|I feel a purchase may be imminent😳|
We shall see what new treats they have to show us.
