Yum to both your visit to Bettys and to real Wensleydale. My last visit to Hawes was after Tour de Yorkshire, when all the decorations were still up, a bright spot on a soaking wet day. I managed to keep my Wensleydale dry though.

On our younger son’s first visit to Bettys he chose the biggest offering, a fat rascal - that remained his choice on every visit since; he still has hollow legs syndrome, as his grandad called it.

A very simple pleasure this morning, a perfect cobweb covered in dewdrops hanging from the fence.

Finding out that "houses of parliament" is an anagram of "shameful operations" :lol:

Oh dear, my concentration is clearly lacking, looked at it a second time and had already written - There is no F'in Houses of Parliament :D when the F'in F finally showed itself.

Didn't need a website for proof, just to get my head out of my rectum.

What has not pleased me today...................... :oops:

Any chance of a link to that as I can't find any anywhere near that price?
I'll soon need to replenish my stock & it would save my missus lugging 'em back from UK when she travels without her car.
