Trauma, tea and treats

We woke early at our B and B, the gables, outside Lincoln and enjoyed a hearty breakfast after our 112 miles. 

On return to our room I found my phone to be no longer operativešŸ˜±

My mother in law, only asked on Sunday what I would do in such an eventuality and I said I’d be fine. To be fair the trauma only ensued in mild panic, with options discussed, one being to find an Apple Store in Harrogate. 

The drive to Harrogate was filled with scenery and music from Calvin Harris to The Osmonds ah the memories of our youth! 

Our first destination was to be Betty’s-has to be done! A queue for a cuppa? But not too long a wait, where we lunched very finely, followed by a fat rascal for Debbie and the macaroons for me! 

Next was the Apple Store, where an Apple reset was required, shopping a  distraction whilst the phone was resuscitated! Luke saved the day and the road trip for me!

An amble back to our hotel, with a spot of people watching along the way and some photo taking! 

Happily esconced in our room we delighted in some pampering: face and hair masks, FaceTime to my mum and then dressing for dinner. 


Debbie suggested the chateaubriand and as a virgin in that department, I gladly accepted her gastronomic experience.

What can I say, an inspired choice, delicious and probably a carlsberg moment for me! 

After a ‘rest’ we had lemon tart to follow-sublime! 

All washed down with fizzy rose! 


What a treat! The sun shone and we have travelled quite a distance. Seahouses has a lot to live up to!
