In About 24 Hours...

...my sister and I will be up in the air, on our way to Manchester Airport.

From there, first the Transpennine Express, then a local train and finally my sister-in-law and her car will take us to Ripon, where we'll be staying at the same lovely cottage we had last year until the 27th.

We are very much looking forwrad to our Yorkshire holiday, and a few things have already been set up with friends and family. Most of the time, though, we will just decide on the spur of a moment what to do and where to go (depending on the weather, of course), and we intend to spend at least one full day just relaxing in the garden that belongs to the cottage, doing NOTHING.

For the next 1 1/2 weeks, I won't have many - if any - occasions for visiting blogland. But you can be sure that I will be back and catch up with your blogs soon after our return - and you can brace yourselves for a series of posts about Yorkshire.

  4. I followed your link. The cottage looked like images I've always had of English cottages in my mind- so charming and cozy. How wonderful to share this with your sister. Safe travels are wished for the both of you.

  5. Wish you a wonderful holiday and will be looking forward to Yorkshire pictures! (still having a special heartstring attached to that part of Britain ever since spending a month there way back in my teens)

  8. Have a lovely holiday in my wonderful county Meike. Sorry you are not going to be in South Yorkshire this time round. I recognised the High Bradfield road straightaway. I hope the weather remains kind for you.

    1. Thank you, Neil. I actually was in Sprotbrough and Thurnscoe last Sunday, but only for the one day, to attend our family gathering and visit my aunt and uncle.
      The weather was good most of the time, except for one really rainy day Tuesday a week ago. I think it was the best holiday I ever had (although I think I say that every year when I come home from Yorkshire).
