We spent a couple of days in York at the start of the week.

The weather was pretty poor for most of the time we were there, so the most York thing we did was walk round the city walls on Wednesday morning before we left.

And that was fine. While it is a lovely place to visit, the main thing was to spend a bit of time together and relax. We enjoyed good food, read books, played some card games together and rested. Controversially, we had denied the boys' request to bring games consoles or laptops with us. That might have ended up being a mistake if we'd been away for longer, but for a trip that was just under 48 hours away from home it worked well for us all.
