Six word Saturday

Goodbye to a worn out year!

A chance remark gave me this week’s six words, but I do like to leave you with a smile.  Remember my Monday walk, Yarn bombing in Yorkshire?  I had cause to return to Thirsk this week and what should I find in Market Square but these cheeky characters.

Nothing to do but smile, is there?  I’d had a bit of a walk round, of course, and discovered more of the town history on information boards.  Thirsk is well equipped for walkers of all grades. And just a few reminders of Christmas past…

I walked past White Rose Book Cafe once, but I couldn’t walk past it twice.  You’ll be expecting cake, but it was really cold and I had a warm cheese scone instead.  Heaven!  You’ll have to come back on Monday for cake, and then it’ll be a New Year.  Thank you for sharing this one with me.

I know it’s been a bad year for some of you.  We can only hope for better, can’t we?  Wishing you, as I always do, good health and happiness in the year ahead.  I hope to be in Norfolk with Polish family for New Year.  Please snow, start thawing now.  Over to Debbie for some magic!


  1. A lovely walk round Jo! I haven’t been on the blog much with family visitors but just trying to catch up before the end of the year!! Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas time and wishing you all the very best for the New Year! xx 🙂


  2. oh this is lovely . . really needed some cheer this morning, and your wonderful post is just perfect. Thank you Jo.

    Do hope you have made it to Norfolk safely, and look forward to hearing all the stories next week.

    Thanks so much for all the support this year, and here’s to a much happier 2018 for everyone xxxx

    1. Still waiting for himself to get out of bed and shift himself 🙂 🙂 But it’ll be a long drive and a long night so I’ll wait peacefully. It’s good to have you around, darlin. Wishing you and Robert a wonderful year ahead. 🙂 🙂

    1. I’m hoping they meant Wales and Shropshire, Carol. 🙂 🙂 We did have snow on Friday but thankfully it’s gone now. Not sure what we’ll find on the drive to Norfolk today, but fingers crossed. A very happy and healthy New Year to you too!
