Have you bought something recently to make your home prettier?
Last Friday (1 August) I forgot Yorkshire Day. I should have posted something from the area, or a photo of a white rose, the symbol of this largest shire in England. Do you remember the famous line from Shakespeare’s Richard III ?

So, I know some Shakespeare but I forgot Yorkshire Day. In my defence, I did watch an episode of Downton Abbey on Friday after enjoying my pizza. Its fictional country estate is in Yorkshire, close to Ripon and Thirsk. Am I forgiven?And all the clouds that lour'd upon our houseIn the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
