Went to Leeds today, Jennie's off for a hen night in York this evening so split the journey up. Plan had been to have lunch in the excellent Scarbrough Hotel
opposite the station, but it was packed full of Leeds fans and all the seating was taken by a hen party, so we went on into town and ended up lucking out with seating at Whitelocks
. Considering that it's the oldest pub in Leeds
, it's damn impressive. Went there before
but not actually had a meal. Um, yeah. Menu made it look a bit pricy. Really, it's not. It's really
not. I ordered veggie bangers and mash with a side of onion rings. Plate full. And really really good. Jennie had roast chicken. She got a roast chicken. Seriously. It even looked good to me, and I don't eat meat. If you're in Leeds and looking for good food or good beer, either is worth a try, and Whitelocks is just cool anyway.
We wandered a bit after that, I wanted to get hold of a book
. Smiths didn't have it, but they did have a nice pile of DVDs on offer and, well, we couldn't resist, so more classic Who
and a few other things, including a boxed set of wooden board games
. Waterstone's didn't have it either, but they did have an import of Android's Dream
so that's ok. We decided that out of Borders and Waterstone's, Waterstone's wins, could've spent all day there, easily. Instead we just spent money we don't really have. Ah well, books are never bad.
So, given she's off galivanting in York and I'm not in the mood to go back out, it's me, the dogs, a wide screen TV and a glass (or three) of whisky. After a nice long bath that is. What should I watch first then?
] And some 5th Doctor stuff, does that count as "classic"?

] Does anyone actually play backgammon properly? Never actually tried it.
