No time for crafting today as I took my Gorgeous Grand daughter to York for a day out. I even detoured away from craft shops as it was her day. My day  will come soon!

York was very Christmassy with lots of street entertainers,decorations and food stalls. Grand daughter thought that York Minster was amazing and how did they build that?

We visited the Jorvick Viking Centre which was very exciting and educational. We boarded a time travelling machine and went back to pre 1066 when the Vikings lived and worked in York. There was a village representation based on an archaeological dig carried out in 1976. You could see the people (well models) hear the chatter and even smell the dung heap! There were 2 human Viking skeletons and 4 holographic Viking ghosts, great fun.

We saw the house where Guy Fawkes was born and Grand daughter was very impressed. I had to take the photo of this curly dog but not sure if its a good or bad hair day. Generally a great (but craft less) day out and bonding day out👭
