So recently I decided rather than do one big monthly round-up post, I'd try out doing them weekly. This is the first! What a great week to start on as its probably been the least entertaining week I've had all Summer. A lot of my friends are away at some sort of camp or holiday so this week has mainly consisted of doing some blog work, including trying out a new layout. What do you think so far? Participating in my first #teenagebloggerschat was pretty nice too!
Over the weekend I went to one of the local village's annual Ag show (an agricultural show, for those who were confused by my tweets @aisforaylablog). On Sunday we decided to pop out to Cliffe Castle in Keighley, Yorkshire but were pretty surprised to see the streets lined with hundreds of people with whistles. After a few confused glances we figured out that by chance we'd decided to visit on the day of the Gala, fab! The traffic was going nowhere so we stopped for a little while.
Continuing on with the Grand Tour of Yorkshire, we took a trip to Skipton, "the Southern gateway to the Yorkshire Dales". We wandered around for a bit passing in and out of about 50 of Skipton's soap shops and apothecaries. A routine stop at Bizzie Lizzie's chip shop (which is hands down the best in the town) later and the temperamental Yorkshire weather had become unbearable, so we cut the day short.
I'm planning on next week being a better week. I'd like to visit the new Manchester Trafford Victoria's Secret store that opened on the 8th and I've also got a trip to good old Preston planned. Hopefully next time I can offer you some better quality photos, rather than ones from my phone.
