Back from York...

On Friday I travelled up to York to visit a couple of exhibitions, as well as take advantage of a short break with my husband, minus the family- who are now all adults and can look after the house and themselves.

I must admit there was a pile of dishes in the sink when we got back today... :D

I took lots of photos in York- some for blog posts now, others for later in the year, and a few for Serena's blog; and more random images that I'm sure I'll find a use for.

Having just checked how many, there's 600+. That's going to take me some time to sort out, choose, and label.

I'm amazed I can actually move, as I did so much walking while I was away. Each evening when I got back to the hotel and finally stopped still, my muscles stiffened up and I just wanted to lie down and watch the TV.

After hearing about Betty's, I actually got to experience the tearoom. We were downstairs, but the service was the same as upstairs, and we didn't have to queue up as long either.

We stayed about five-ten minutes walk from the Minster, so we got to admire the amazing craftsmanship, past and present, several times a day.

More soon.

    1. It was a good weekend, Teresa, and the weather was a big improvement on the rain we'd left behind. :)

    1. Considering the severe flooding they had, you'd never have known how bad it was now, Helen.

      The food and drink in Betty's is worth queuing up for.:)

  4. Wow - 600+ photos? That's an awful lot of sorting you're going to have to do! :)

    1. I discovered I'd read the wrong figure and it was only 131, but I'm still sorting, naming and tagging them, Claudia. :-)

  5. 600? OMG! Mind you, I will have to tackle mine one day, but I'm leaving it until I've had my cataracts done and can look at the screen for longer than an hour at a time!

    1. I've discovered the 600 was the amount I could have taken- looked at the wrong figure. But even 131 is tiring, Lizy.

      I've sorted them into folders and am working my way through. Still have lots to do. :-)
