Making the most of the last few days before the schools go back, for galleries, shopping, go-kart racing, horse-riding, making stuff, reading stuff, painting stuff, building stuff – and that’s just my entertainment 😉
Here’s one of the places we visited. Once known as ‘the Dark Arches’, this used to be an area of Leeds that no sane person would wander around in daylight, let alone at night. Now it is one of the entrances to Leeds City station, as well as a cut through to the trendy and fashionable Granary Wharf. Brilliantly and imaginatively lit, with security cameras every few yards, it adds a touch of fun to a safe walk in an area that was once a creepy, smelly no-go zone. Let’s hear it for Leeds Council and British Rail 🥂
And if you haven’t visited Salts Mill in Saltaire yet, get yourself down there to see the David Hockney exhibits and a whole lot more.
In praise of pets day today.
Something different – my clan badge: Macintosh. Yep, I have some Celtic blood, if you hadn’t guessed that already from the red hair and freckles!
‘Touch not the cat bot (or without) a glove.’
Hmm. I couldn’t possibly comment!
I hope to be celebrating my Scottish heritage some time soon in ways that will be clear before long!
Meanwhile, stay safe and happy, and we’ll speak again soon
