Nothing more inspiring than a journey, and the one we took by train (from Manchester across the Pennines to Sheffield) last Wednesday was spectacular. It’s our first Christmas away from home for fifteen years, and we’re staying in a (mostly vacated) student house in the centre of Sheffield. The house (where my youngest son lives) is one of the few surviving listed back-to-backs in the city centre – and though it’s quite austere, the layout is quirky and it has the original window and door latches and ceiling roses. Haven’t done any writing yet – been too busy shopping, cooking or eating – but I’ve taken a lot of photographs. Will do something with them in the New Year.
I’ve posted Six Days in Sheffield (a compendium of Dot Seven’s tweets) at my random Dot Seven blog.
