Just logged in for the first time in many months, and it seems that I am now able to post and edit etc, even though I haven't paid any fees. Does that mean the typepad will now be free, or is just a temprorary thing? I think I will enjoy this while it lasts, and then think about paying if and when that becomes necessary again. :-)
At the moment I am in England, for the first time in 37 years, and I'm enjoying not only the weather but also catching up with my family and friends, visiting places I remember and discovering new ones. I arrived here on 1st June and will leave to head back to Australia on 9th July. Would love to be able to afford to come back again, but next time in winter..................yeah, I know, I must be mad wanting to come back to snow and ice and freezing cold. lol
Since I have been here I've been to the Lake District for the first time, re-visited Chester (one of my favourite places), driven through Englands narrow, winding country lanes (and scared the living daylights out of my Mum, lol) and visited Whitby, Goathland (Heartbeat country) and Scarborough for the first time.
Bowness on Lake Windermere, Lake District, Cumbria, England.
Streetscape in Chester, Cheshire, England; showing the Roman Wall that surrounded the city in the days of the Roman occupation.
My Mum on the wall in Chester.
Me outside the Aidensfield Garage. Aidensfield is the fictional town in the TV series Heartbeat which was filmed in the village of Goathland, Yorkshire. Although the series stopped filming several years ago, it is still seen in syndication in many countries around the world and the area is still a popular tourist destination, hence they stil have many of the shops with the Aidensfield name on them, and props such as the 1960's vehicles etc.
Heading off to Blackpool (another favourite) on Monday, then taking a boat trip down the Manchester Ship Canal from Salford Quays to Liverpool on Tuesday. Going to North Wales on Thursday (don't think I'll get to South Wales this trip) and hopefully my first visit to Stonehenge next week.
Till next time, stay safe; and happy knitting.
