Adventures in Yorkshire...

Ugh, what a month!  Think I'll be glad to see the back of October, there's something about this month that doesn't work for me, starting to think the world is trying to send me a message...  I'll do a wee update post later this week, at the mo here's some pictures of my recent trip to visit my best friend Mhairi.  She moved to East Yorkshire last year and is not enjoying the English hospitality so far - we may have had a slightly mad time and she changed her mind slightly though, so looks like I have another fun place to park myself on holidays!

I actually had a relatively easy drive down, considering the thing I hate most in life is being behind the wheel.  However the mostly motorway road suited me just fine (I like to toddle along at 60mph the entire way to anywhere) and I made it in a respectable 5 hours.  On Saturday we went into York, which I totally fell in love with, such history and prettiness!

 Here we are attempting an awkward self portrait, none of them really worked cause we were too busy yapping, so ended up just taking pics of each other - in pjs...
 This was right before we discovered that Mhairi's fancy effect lenses fit on my camera, I turned into a bit of a kid in a sweetshop ;)
 As well as introducing Mhairi to the joys of charity shopping, we also found a bookshop selling everything off for £2 a book - the bottom two were on my Amazon wishlist and the top one just looked fun, the October curse was briefly lifted!

Saturday night we went out with in a nearby town and ended up in a bar that was half old man pub and half club - a lot of dancing and avoiding creepy short guys was done, and also a lot of giggling by me, gotta learn not to mix drinks...  Thankfully there are no pictures of this, just take my word for it we looked hot ;)
 Sunday we headed to Scarborough after the rugby (I woke up 78.5 minutes in, could not have timed it better!).  Here's a random Faff Fact - I love tacky seaside towns.  Could be down to visiting Blackpool at various intervals in my life, who knows, but yeah I was in my element and had the camera out before we even parked!  It was actually a pretty nice (cold) day, my pictures just turned out a bit dull...

 I also insisted on a traditional seaside lunch - a bag of chips followed by a 99, yummy!

 All layered up and trying not to freeze...
Mhairi told me about this place and of course I had to give it a visit, and despite causing her great embarrassment, she agreed to take a picture - cause that's what best friends do when one is slightly unhinged, humour them....

Hope everyone else had an awesome weekend!



  1. York is ggrrreeaatt! Looks like you had a fab time! X

  2. i think i am going to choose York as the venue for my weekend away for my queens guide award - i have to choose somewhere for an 'exploration' where i have not been before. York looks lovely!

  3. That looks like a great weekend and those chips look yummy. x

  4. One of my best friends lives in York and I loooooove it - it's absolutely stunning. Also, the shops which turns just about anything into milkshakes? Love it.

    (I also love tacky seaside towns; I was in my element when I visited Blackpool a couple of years ago. On a hen do, and everything)

    Hope November's much better for you x

  5. I hope November is better for you than October has been :)

    Looks like you had a great trip though - that icecream looks amazing! I live in a tacky seaside town, so you'd think the novelty would've well & truly worn off, but no, not really!

    LOVE that last pic - hilarious :)
