Yorkshire sun and rain

Yorkshire hills are green - and that's because they get a lot of rain!

This is what it looks like in the sunshine, and mighty fine the sunshine is, too. Ross and Chris opened the world's largest bottle of pinot grigio, and we sat in the garden until we all froze to death. Because that's how you enjoy sunshine in Yorkshire.... or so we are told.

Do we think we are being wound up?

- Never!

But it's okay, the sunshine didn't last for long, and soon it was right back to normal:

It's been fantastic staying with Ross and Chris, and we're really pleased to have been able to see some of James' pack of half and step siblings, between university digs moving in and out, jobs and lives elsewhere.

We're really glad you made it down to say hello, folks!

When we're not drinking or sleeping, we've been out to York, a favourite town to visit. At York we walked in the rain, visited the Monster, and saw the brand-new, just-opened National Quilt Museum (about which there is much more on Bev's blog, Taccolina...). I think James will be posting more about York soon.

-Now if only the tourists would get out of the way when James tries to take a photo....

(tee hee)
