Houdinis in Gibraltar

In which our heroine wastes half a day to be told the blatantly obvious.

Three health appointments in a week is no fun. It disrupts me from my idle sofa routine, it disrupts my dogs – Snowy doesn’t like to see me being taken away by the ambulance crew – and it most definitely disrupts my partner. 2,257 more words

An excellent post from Vicky summing up the sense of Yorkshire pride in our home county. I too rebelled against the 1974 Local Govt Act that took away our precious Ridings and always addressed mail to my parents in the West Riding. Not West Yorkshire. It was a very big issue. It still is. So this reblog, thanks to Vicky, is not just for her, but also for Dawn in Queensland, Aus; Sandra in Spain up the road from me, and Kev who is actually in 'Ull. The only one of us in Yorkshire. Like Vicky they are all from the East Riding, whereas I'm from t' mill towns in t' West Riding. And to everyone who supported the Yorkshire start to the Tour de France, you did our county proud.
