Had a lovely weekend, went to Leeds to the newly opened Kitty Cafe. It was so cool! There`s rope bridges, giant scratching posts, shelves a few feet from the ceiling going all the way along the wall so the cats/kittens can get away if they want too. Lovely looking cat beds, and really comfortable brightly coloured chairs to sit in. Your encouraged to wander around and stroke the cats (no picking up though). They also supply string so you can play with the cats. The cats must be in heaven! I think they will be pretty disappointed when they get adopted lol. A decent bit of cake was had too! If you are a cat lover you will love it!.
When in Leeds it would be rude not to go for a curry! Lovely meal had at my favourite curry place.
In the evening i went to see The Little Mermaid Ballet by The Northern Ballet at Leeds Grand. Wow. Just wow. It was brilliant. Just stunningly beautiful. The girl who played the Little Mermaid was just amazing! You could tell she was suppose to be `under the sea` even though there was no real water lol, and obviously they don`
t speak. Such brilliant acting. Watching the girls on there tip toes! Blimey!. I`ve only ever seen one ballet before and that was The Nutcracker years ago. I highly recommend it!
I missed the Strictly final, but have since caught up with it. I am a tad disappointed at the result, i have been routing for Debbie or Gemma for weeks, but hey ho!
Christmas will soon be upon us!
Had a fab trip out to the National Centre for Birds of Prey located in Dunscombe Park, Helmsley. It was a lovely scenic drive over, freezing cold, i think the temperature was around -1!. On the plus side there was hardly anyone there, so we did`n
t have to wrestle to see the birds. There were so many different kinds to see, and plenty of owls which i adore. We watched a couple of flying demonstrations where they flew a Great Grey Owl (see pic), Brown Wood Owl, a Caracara and a couple of others who`s names escape me!
Then back to the gorgeous bed and breakfast with the most gigantic bed i have ever seen, a couple of hours were spent warming up 😉 The bedroom had one of those free standing baths! Plus a huge shower that could fit a lot of people in! I made use of the bath and took some photos which will be in my AdultWork gallery when i have had a sort through.
We went back to the Birds of Prey Centre for the evening owl event. A tour and info about the owls were given, we watched them flying the owls both inside and out and they even gave us a meal too!
Back to the posh bed and breakfast to warm up……again! 😉 All that fresh air wore us out, i slept well in the gigantic comfortable bed! Morning shenanigans may have occurred 😉 then a hearty full English Breakfast. We had a stroll around Helmsley, its got lots of lovely little shops, not high street ones, so you can find different kinds of gifts. My gentleman James treated me to a lovely bangle. A leisurely drive home was had, it was snowing lightly when we got closer to Huddersfield but not settling. Another great over night had!
