I met Maddie in the centre of the city and we headed straight for yummy pizza joint, The Stable. The mixture of stone-baked pizza and ciders are the perfect mixture for any catchup with friends. We both went for a goats cheese and vegetable soiree, and chatted for ages about our lives, work and relationships. It was just wonderful.
We trekked up the 200+ steps to the bell tower, and were lucky enough to hear the clock striking whilst we were up there. The cathedral roof is the old wood design from hundreds of years ago and you truly felt like you were standing on piles of dusts from decades previous. It's quite an extraordinary feeling. We then climbed even more stairs (which got smaller and smaller as we went) and finally got to the roof of the tower. The views were incredible and you could see for miles in every direction.
The service finished, and Maddie and I had huge hugs and went our separate ways. A mixture of food, drink, history and music - it was truly the perfect catchup.
