    ... was had including some Black Sheep brew and maths and classics homework at the table. The Manserghs bid their adieu and headed up to visit Hadrian's Wall on our way out towards York. Along the way we discovered Dad's land-a classic Spa town. That seems very appropriate. So to all of you Game of Thrones fans-we got to walk some of the Wall! ...
