York

563093_10200702269989247_1501533476_nIt’s not very often that I get to see my baby cousins because they live a forever away. It sucks but it did mean that I jumped at the chance to see them. We agreed to meet in York and spent a wonderful couple of hours wandering around the city before grabbing a lovely meal at ASK.. If you’ve never been, the restaurant is inside the old assembly halls and it is stunning. Plus it makes a fabulous apple pudding and according to mum, an equally good honeycomb cheesecake. I didn’t get to try it because of stupid lent but it looked amazing!

The city itself is lush (I wrote about it here) and I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody. It’s full of winding streets that hide some lush little shops but more on that later.

While we were there, there was some sort of festival on. I think it was run by Jorvik because it was all about the vikings and archaeology. There were loads of activities on in the city centre for kids but I got slightly excited by the photo opportunities. I think this photo makes it kind of obvious that we are related!

It was absolutely lovely to see my family and the girls really are hilarious! I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in a while! Thank you for making the trek to see us!

Mum and I stayed behind to do what was meant to be a bit of shopping. I dont know what it is about York but I can’t leave empty handed. It has some of the greatest shops (the Topshop is fantastic) and I grabbed some absolute bargains so I have no complaints! Who complains about new shoes? Sometimes retail therapy is all you need after a stressful term at college.
