    Hi Barb,
    Hope you're fit and well.
    So glad you had good times catching up with the family, Gordon sounds as if he's a fun guy and brings everyone together!

    l'm still under the doctor so haven't been doing too much lately, l don't actually feel ill, it's just the pain in my feet, lower legs and back which gets at me. l try not to give in but sometimes, thankfully for quite short periods, it's unbearable but l eventually bounce back...lol...

    lt was the long August Bank Holiday week-end last week so on the Monday David took me for a ride out.
    lt was glorious weather and we decided to avoid the crowds by going up through the forestry to the North Yorkshire Moors.
    The moorland pictures were taken at the highest point on Blakey Ridge near Rosedale...it's 400 metres above sea level. lt was so windy that when l got out of the car to take photos the wind whipped my t shirt off over my head and left it dangling from one arm...lol...it's a good job the only other inhabitants were the moorland sheep!!
    The sheep wander at will, no fences, and are a feature of the landscape.
    We motored down into the Danby Fryup valley and along the old drover's road 'til we arrived in Whitby. lt's a picturesque old whaling port with a ruined abbey on the cliff top, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula, and the place Captain Cook sailed from. A replica of Cook's ship the 'Endeavour' and another barque the 'Grand Turk' are always in port for sea trips so it was full of holidaymakers but we managed to park quite easily and gave in to the crowds which we usually avoid.
    l was so pleased with myself as l walked the seafront and most of the long pier. l could only manage it as their are plenty of seats, walls etc to sit on and l think we did more sitting than walking but l so enjoyed it.
    We finished off with fish and chips...they taste so much better when you're outside...sitting on the sea wall.
    l was very tired and achey when l got back but it was a lovely day. l slept very well, l usually don't, but l paid with quite a bit of pain the next day...it was worth it though!

    The weather has turned, we were promised an indian summer but it's been raining most days since they said it. We noticed a lot of the trees were already turning when we were out at the week-end, so it seems autumn is on her way.

    Hope you have a lovely week and thank you for the lovely comments about my photos.
    Take care.

    Hi Barb, l haven't been around much myself, got knocked for six by a virus for about ten days and still feeling the tiredness aftermath even now. Other than that everything else is no change. l'm back to see the specialist on Wednesday but l'm not expecting anything to be any different.

    Glad you had a good visit with your son, hope his results are good.
    Nice to hear your gym work is having results too, l seem to be taking one step forward and two steps back!

    We've had Joseph to stay three days this week-end whilst his parents were at a wedding, the girls stayed with their other grandma so they could attend the 'night do' with her. lt's been a joy but it's quite tiring, you can't take your eyes off a three year old for a minute! He goes home tomorrow afternoon, l'll miss him but it will nice to sit down and read or sew quietly for a while.

    Hope you're having a good week, take care emoticon
