We go to the Ebor meeting at York every summer - sometimes we sunbathe while watching the races, sometimes we shiver. This year we didn't see a single race. The whole meeting was cancelled because of the rain.

What a disaster. I have to admit I prefer sightseeing and shopping anyway but our hotel was full of people who had travelled from all over the place to be there just for the racing element. Instead of losing money to the bookies we managed to find Wilfred Owen's cottage in Ripon;

had an enthusiastic tour of Shandy Hall where Laurence Sterne wrote Tristram Shandy


and saw Roman artefacts in Malton Museum so we've come home a lot wiser and probably richer.
