Home - well almost
I thought I would post some pics of where I live. This beautiful and dramatic lake area is just 4 miles down the road from us.
My BIL (Helens hubby) came walking over here on Sunday before he picked up his daughter, my neice Amy from our home on Sunday evening. As Amy had been staying with Mark and I for the weekend and boy didn't we have fun!
BIL had taken his camera with him and had a wonderful warm dry day to walk and came back with some wonderful photos he had taken of Wasdale and the Screes, This picture above is a good one of the Screes, they are very dramatic all times of the year. Often you can still find snow tucked away in August in the top of the screes, though I don't think there is any this year as we didn't have as much snow up there this past winter.
Wasdale Lake is the deepest Lake in England and has many gory tales to tell. Its a stunning area to see and visit, though we do tend to get missed by tourists, we mostly get walkers (or crag rats as they are locally known) wandering around up here.
What else to tell - well Amy stayed with us from Friday - On Saturday Mark and I took her over to Little Sawrey which is near Hawkshead to see Beatrix Potters home - Hill Top Farm we had a great time even though it was drizzly rain, I will have a couple of photos downloaded from my camera in the next couple of days of our visit. When we got back Amy and I snuggled in our dressing gowns and watched Miss Potter on Sky movies.
On Sunday Helen came over with my nephew and we all went out for lunch in the local pub - what a great time we all had, Helen rifled through my patterns and stash and looked at all the wonderful exchanges I have received and ratched through my finishing drawer of the things I've yet to finish. We chattered all afternoon - good job Mark was at the pub watching the golf open as he would have been bored witless LOL!!! BIL collected everyone later in the evening.
Stitchy news - well I have finished Carols NRR and I am pleased with how it looks and I have now started on my seasonal exchange piece.
Picures of Carols NRR coming tomorrow with a bit of luck - time depending as I have a physio appointment tomorrow night.
Only 9 more days to go and we are off on our holidays - yippeeeeeed!
