Last November, I completely fell in love !
Every minute in this wonderful city was pure joy and the place had a lasting effect on me.
There is not a day goes by when I don't think about our visit; that amazing Minster ;
Shambles shopping; Jorvik treasures ; ninety nine visits to CK (LOL) ; coffee in Bettys and that pretentious waiter (it has to be said!); shivering ourselves silly at York City football club (where, coincidentally, Torquay United were playing that very weekend...how fortunate was that?)
and the wonderful, fabulous railway museum...
I purchased these... reproductions of the old British Railways posters, of which I am a huge fan.
I've also recently discovered this little series of books and was delighted to find this one at Abe Books, one of my fave places for browsing when I have the time to spare.
I loved York with a passion and I do so hope that I'll return soonish!
You know,thinking of York City's 'vintage' football ground, reminds me of this vintage book cover...
I spotted this in my dad's bookcase last week!
Vintage footy at its best!
Just look at that garb!
More hunks on this blog..this is all getting too much for me!
How those days of baggy shorts were just so wonderful, in many ways.
Which reminds me...
A massive well done to Exeter City.
Back to back promotions can't be easy !
And it does not pain me to say it..you've done Devon sooo proud!
I just hope and pray that Torquay United can make it a Double Devon Delight!
And now I am off to bed early... to dream of ....hunks in baggy shorts!!
Tomorrow, I'm off early to the booty...it's 'The Big One' at Newton Abbot Racecourse...so place your bets now as to what I'll come home with! ;-)
