with love from York (1991)

With love from York

Mum, Dad, Si, Hils & Tallulah, We’ve been to York today to learn a bit of Viking history. It’s quite an attractive city even when it’s wet and windy. The B&B is really smart – we’re in an old farmhouse and the fried breakfast is huge! We’ll be sightseeing on the ‘Dales’ tomorrow looking for Triston & Heriot. Had a good time with Don & Mor & Co. See you soon love Paul & Trace

The post marks are very feint on this card; the year is 1991 but the month is unclear and there is no clue in the text, since ‘wet and windy’ can occur all year round in the UK! The other post mark reads ‘The Magic of British Music THE BRITS 1991′

Inevitably, the weather features in the text, together with a descriptive status update on the accommodation and food. ‘Triston & Heriot’ refers to the popular TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small‘ which was set in the Yorkshire Dales.

This card is written by Paul, who was, and still is, my brother-in-law. Tracey was, and still is, his wife. Presumably Simon (and Paul’s) parents were staying with us over the period as they are also addressed, along with our daughter, Tallulah, who was just a baby at the time. Lots of family info here as there is mention of Uncle, Aunt and cousins on Simon and Paul’s Mum’s side of the family – phew! We see Paul and Tracey regularly, along with ‘Mum & Dad’ and ‘Don & Mor & Co’ at family gatherings.
