So what to do in YORK? Oh my, this is a really interesting place steeped in a rich history from a Roman Settlement to a Viking era and a Norman invasion. There is still so much medieval history to see like Clifford's Tower, much of the city wall, city gates and even the old street called "The Shambles" just to name a few. For starters we visited Clifford's Tower on our first day. I had been here before when I was just 16 but realised that I remembered very little.
Over the next couple of days we explored the city, visiting York Minster, walking on part of the city wall and strolling round the streets

|the medieval street called The Shambles|
|part of the medieval wall which still wraps itself around part of the town|
The inside of the Minster was serene and peaceful
web site has photo's of quilts in their collection although I can't find the one I mentioned above.
Back on the home front this week, things have been tough. My job has been dissolved, my hubby deserted me for a trip to NZ with another woman.....(OK, I exaggerate....he took his mum with him) and worst of all my boy, Ted, had a car accident and is really fortunate to get himself out of the wreckage after rolling the car twice with nothing more than a couple of scratches. That is why this post got delayed and I have a number of new grey hairs this week.
