Good Things This Week

We're on holiday! That's a good thing on its own.


I was given some tea towels!

We went to a talk about murder at Edge Hill University.


I made overnight oats.

We went to Hull, and as luck would have it the day before our 20th Century Society magazine arrived with an article about the city. I had never noticed before that the masts on the (former) BHS mural spell out 'Hull'. Flabbergasted!


We visited Cottingham on our way to Hull to nip into Blondes a very splendid veg*n cafe, I had pastry!


and glitter cake!



We received our cheques, for £10.48 for the "Twenty's Plenty" footballs tickets when we went to watch Everton v Burnley. Oh yes, Burnley were not relegated from the Premier League - jelly and ice cream all round. 

Best of all Dan did the hoovering and made most of the sandwiches.

  1. It's always good to be on holiday especially when the Clarets are staying put and someone else does the vacuuming.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who would be excited to have been given some teatowels.
    Did you like the overnight oats? I've heard a lot of people mention them on instagram but I don't really know what they are. X

    1. The Clarets are staying up, can you believe it?

      I did like the overnight oats, mainly for the convenience, a couple of minutes in the evening is far better than a couple of minutes in the morning! Unless I'm missing something it's just oats soaked overnight (equal amounts of oats and liquid) then you can add whichever toppings you like.

    1. Thank you. The cake was yum, as were the oats, they're so simple and I like not having to make many decisions first thing in the morning, if I can just grab it and go then that's a very good thing!

  3. No, but Hull were unfortunately. (Not that I'm a follower, but my brother in law and his family are) I hope that the redevelopment opportunity notice on the BHS building doesn't mean it will soon be disappearing. In all the 30 years I lived there, I never knew that the masts spelt Hull. Well spotted.

    1. Yes, I would rather Hull have stayed up but that's the way it goes :(

      There is a push from C20 fans to save the mural but who knows what will happen, it's such a great piece to have in the city centre. I would probably never have spotted the masts but it was mentioned in the magazine article.

      We also saw "dead bod", it's in Humber St. Gallery now.

  4. I fancy a trip to Hull - there is a lot going on there I believe. I had lunch at the Uni one day when elder daughter went for a job interview. I like the look of the veggie cafe though and close to Beverley - somewhere I haven't been for years. Hope you have a good holiday.

    1. There is so much going on all over the city, the Weeping Window of poppies was just being taken down when we were there. Fruit Market is looking great now and as I said I think Ferens gallery is a must. We're hoping to go for the weekend later in the summer all being well.
