I saw three ships come sailing in....

This is Sting in 2009 with Kathryn Tickell (and more) playing "I saw three ships coming sailing in" at Durham Cathedral in 2009.

I was lucky enough to spend a marvellous week in Durham this summer brushing up my Latin at the JACT Summer School plus, as a bonus, the weather was fantastic. If you can - I do recommend going to the JACT Classics Summer School - such marvellous fun for young and old. Everybody is very friendly and approachable.

Whilst there I also got to see the magical The Lindisfarne Gospels at the exhibition near to the Cathedral. I vaguely remembered visiting the Cathedral in my childhood and it was great to renew the acquaintance. If you can visit the Cathedral - it is well worth it - it is absolutely stunning. The Lindisfarne Gospels' exhibition was very enjoyable and interesting too.

It has been a good year for us at the Four Wynds' B&B...there's been super, super weather during the main season. Our guests, as ever, have been good fun. I've done some more work with Hands-on-Latin with the teaching and touring and very much look forward to doing more in 2014!

And so.....We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Auguri! Best wishes,

Catherine, Nigel and Family xx xx

Very many thanks, Maggie. Wishing you and your family a very wonderful Christmas and peaceful New Year. So sorry I have not been blogging and visiting other people's blogs. There is a huge backstory which I have not been able to blog about (all to do with banks). Maybe one day I will tell all! Hope to visit your blog soon. Take care and best wishes, Catherine xx
