Are you absolutely fed up of this rainy weather? I know I am. So I decided after work, and a quick trip to the hairdressers that I would drag hubby for a quick walk before we ate.

So hubby picked us up, and as no one had to be at work, we headed over to somewhere that has been on my list for a while - Hathersage Lido. I love Hathersage and with a Lottery win, I would move like a shot. The open air pool is the icing on the cake. It is spotlessly clean and really well kept. As it was still technically out of season, we were allowed to stay as long as we liked, so we stayed all day - I really didn't want to leave. The day was exceptionally hot and it was just a perfect day for it - and not too busy either.

On Sunday, my sister and I had a very special overnight stay planned. We were up very early to catch the train from Sheffield to Manchester - infact we were up too early so we had breakfast in front of Sheffield station - it was the most beautiful morning.

Something new in Scarborough since we last visited was the statue of Freddie Gilroy. You might never have heard of him - I know I hadn't. He was just an ordinary man. But when you read his story, you realise that he wasn't. You can read his story HERE. Like thousands of boys and men, he went to fight for his country and came back a changed person.
