Well beautiful as Yorkshire is, there is another side to it of course. I picked this up on F/B this morning, a Channel 4 news clip in Teeside. The young reporter is a friend of my eldest grandson Tom, and highlights in his first report the fact that there is not enough work for the young in the North. And that really we don't spend enough money in keeping our young out of trouble. Amongst all the angst of the coming election it is well to remember that actually nothing much happens in the lives of ordinary people.
It rained probably all last night and the ground has had a good soaking, brilliant sunshine as I took Lucy down the lane with the swallows wheeling overhead.
A mixed week, my ex-husband died a few days ago, and my son is having to arrange the funeral and all the myriad of things that needs doing. He was a good son, visiting his father in hospital, and my daughter Karen and I will go down for the scattering of the ashes.
