Thursday 21st July 2016.......I look gorgeous again!!!!

Had my haircut this afternoon and the above describes me!!!!!!!!!  Do not forget this is my blog and I can write what I want sometimes it is not always true....

I went on the bus into the city of Hull to do some shopping and sightseeing!!
Hull was selected as the city of culture for next year so there is much construction taking place at the moment!!

UK City of Culture is a designation given to a city in the United Kingdom for a period of one year. The aim of the initiative, which is administered by theDepartment for Culture, Media and Sport, is to "build on the success of Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture 2008, which had significant social and economic benefits for the area".[1] The inaugural holder of the award was Derry~Londonderry in 2013. In 2017, Kingston upon Hull will take the title






I was looking to buy a new back pack as mine is beginning to show signs of wear and tear but could not find one so I will stick with the old one for a while...but i did manage to find a really cheap but great guide book of Ireland so it was not a wasted trip.

Back in the village Thursday morning is market day and there were a few stalls....




Back at home Janet and Malc and I were sitting out in the garden when I heard this noise and it kept getting closer and we looked up in to the sky and flying low and in formation we saw the Red Arrows!!!

Did not have my camera....

Yashi kochi!!!

The RAF Red Arrows depart the 2014 Royal International Air Tattoo,England, in a colour scheme that commemorates their 50th year.
The Red Arrows, officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, is the aerobatics display team of the Royal Air Force based at RAF Scampton. The team was formed in late 1964 as an all-RAF team, replacing a number of unofficial teams that had been sponsored by RAF commands.
The Red Arrows badge shows the aircraft in their trademark diamond nine formation, with the motto Éclat, a French word meaning "brilliance" or "excellence".
Initially, they were equipped with seven Folland Gnat trainers inherited from the RAF Yellowjacks display team. This aircraft was chosen because it was less expensive to operate than front-line fighters. In their first season, they flew at 65 shows across Europe. In 1966, the team was increased to nine members, enabling them to develop their Diamond Nine formation. In late 1979, they switched to the BAE Hawk trainer. The Red Arrows have performed over 4,700 displays in 56 countries worldwide
