Apologies for not posting for such a long time. I had planned on posting about my small knitting progress before going on holiday, but just didn't get round to it. Oops.
We took a family trip to the Lake District. It's about a 5 hour car trip from London , but it's worth it because it is just gorgeous there. The weather was very changeable with driving rain one day and beautiful sunshine the next day. The kids loved being out and about. Once they are bigger, we'll certainly be doing more hiking with with them.
This is Lake Windermere , on a gorgeous day.
This is Ullswater, another lake in the area.
The kids also loved meeting the animals (as you do in the countryside!) We even found some alpacas! Aidan was convinced he saw a llama on one of our drives. I haven't got the heart to tell him it was only a sheep.
We had such a lovely time. The only thing I missed was the internet connection. No wifi anywhere. No internet cafes. No hot spots. Just the local library and that was a 15 minute drive away. Well, we're back in London now and it's supposed to snow later today and tomorrow. Joy!
