Twitter changes character limit and everyone loses their sh

Twitter is changing it’s character limit and everyone is losing their mind over it or tweeting “funny” running-out-of-space tweets complaining or celebrating it. This was especially over-dramatic: The beauty of Twitter is that it’s short & snappy.

Bolton Abbey.

Following of from a great night of drinks and steak and laughs, which rekindled something, we drove out to Bolton Abbey today. We’d expected it to be just some ruins and maybe a tea-house. What it was though deserves a revisit, more time, a better planning.  When we arrived L checked our guidebook and mentioned … More Bolton Abbey.
