Sunday and it is cloudy once more. What to write, well I have pottered through my photos, stopped at Xmas 2016 but thought I might go with pubs. Paul loved pubs and their beers of course so we visited quite a few. But locally to the village of Normanby we had the one next door run by two young sisters. A traditional pub with a pool room and a small restaurant. Lucy was a good cook, and during the covid period made meals to takeaway.
It was definitely an old fashioned pub, you would meet parties of farmers, a mole catcher once and the village held their annual get togethers in it, with a lot of shouting and good cheer. The Xmas 'do' had a raffle and you would win whatever presents people had brought in.
Our other pub was at Wombleton, a good place for a meal till it came under new management, people who had retired early and thought they could run a pub, losing our nice friendly manager was a blow for us and the over fussing of the new people got on one's nerves.

|Yes the Wombletons did live in this village|
She was very good at choosing her toys at Castle Howard's garden centre. They kept everything low just like they do for children! And Lucy loved it.
