A trip to the north

Hello everyone! Well It's been a couple of weeks since my last post. This is mainly due to the fact that I normally update on Fridays, and on the due date of the last post something rather exciting happened... I got engaged! As you can imagine this prompted the need to spend the evening calling family and friends to tell them the good news, instead of tapping merrily away at my laptop. This weekend I toddled off northwards to County Durham to deliver Christmas presents to the now in-laws. During my visit we went on a trip up to the moors, which offers some really stunning landscapes.

Whilst up there we also dropped in on Tan Hill Inn, the highest altitude pub in Britain, to enjoy a pint and a spot of lunch. The pub really is like taking a step back in time, with it's thick stone walls, massive roaring hearth and flagged floor. All in all, a really wonderful weekend.
