Miscellaneous [May. 5th, 2011|11:34 am]

 I voted Yes to AV- which means I'll almost certainly be on the losing side again.

They're telling us we've just enjoyed the hottest April on record. I thought it had to be- what with all the afternoons I've spent sitting in the back-yard. When we were coming back from Wilmslow a couple of weeks ago the hawthorn was in bloom all along the motorway- about a month earlier than usual. 

The main reason we were over in Yorkshire yesterday was to buy a chair cushion for my father-in-law. There are three branches of Ikea within reasonable travelling distance. and Leeds was the only one that had this particular item in stock. I chose Monk Bretton Priory as a side trip because it was the nearest English Heritage property. South Yorkshire, being urban, doesn't have many. The Priory occupies a field in what is otherwise a rather grotty suburb of Barnsley.

Join the club. Welcome to Loserville.

The priory sounds good, despite its surroundings. Lincluden Collegiate Church in Dumfries is brilliant, but it's right in the middle of a really sh***y housing scheme.

One of the great things about places like Monk Bretton is nobody knows they're there- and you get to have them to yourself.
