Catherine's description (yesterday's comments) of her shopping day in an English market town made me homesick for England and the charm of so many of it's towns and villages and especially it's cathedral cities.
When I first went to York at Christmas time I thought I was in an old fashioned Christmas card. I love that what you are looking at here is the real thing! The medieval streets and many of the buildings have been changed over the years and some almost completely rebuilt I suspect, and a city the size of York has all the city problems of current times, but I still find it very romantic and consider myself so lucky to have lived there.
is there a place you find romantic?
That might be a good word for next year....
