    • Thanks Amy! I’m glad you like it, I don’t think it’s likely I’m going to be able to do it all though sadly. 😦 Time and money aren’t on my side! I’m pleased you’ve been to Whitby, it’s one of my favourite places in the UK and brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. I would love to take P there and share it with him but it may have to wait until we make a return trip to the UK.
