I love Yorkshire

I am writing this and still cannot believe what a fabulous weekend I have had in Scarbados.

I have had more highs and lows than  a fairground ride and as I am putting my thoughts down for the blog..........................................well I am finally close to saying the 'c' word. Although I am not quite close enough to writing it in full.
