Sunday Nostalgia Fest


Today the beloved and I went for a walk in Port Meadow, something we used to do a lot when we were courting.



As is often the case with water meadows, it was full of water.



We saw some nice boats...



...viewed distant spires (although it probably wasn't the right day for that)...



...saw some lasses sculling...



...hung out at the nunnery...



...and saw this fantastic plaque. I love this idea.

The Head of Steam - Huddersfield

Now...I'd hate you to think that I spent all my leisure time in Public Houses...

...but this lunchtime I popped into 'The Head of Steam' on Huddersfield railway station.

It's full of railway memorabilia, and has a great atmosphere. I'm told that it has great beer too, but I stuck to Fentimans.

Lunch with my lovely boys, fantastic.

Surreal Sorrow - RIP Peter Lawrence

My wonderful father-in-law, Pete, passed away on 1st January, after a huge stroke on 19th December. I can't begin to articulate our shock, and how much we're all going to miss him.

He was one of the finest people I've had the honour to know.
