Our ill fated break from work last month was a few days shorter than it should have been, due to not being able to take all that much of a break from work. But it meant The Chap could take those days off this week, before huge amounts of stuff hits him again.
So we went to Lincoln.
Why Lincoln? Why not? Again, you don't need me to tell you about the Romans, the Normans, the importance of inland ports, St Hugh, George Boole, water pumping stations, limestone or any of that other stuff, you can read about it elsewhere if you like.
Arrangements were last minute, so we just opted to stay at a Premier Inn, which turned out to be a very good idea as this was the view from our window. Although, as anyone who has been there will know it's impossible to miss the cathedral.
How gorgeous is this charity shop window?
and this adorable pile of pumpkins!
