The sun shone for the ENTIRE WEEK we were in the Lake District which is some kind of world record. I went equipped for cold, wet weather - packed thermals, fleeces, waterproofs, woolly hats, the lot. Not a single short-sleeved t-shirt, or pair of shorts or sunhat.
Ah well, who cares, I pushed up my sleeves and made a hat out of a buff. We had a great time, climbed lots of peaks including Scafell Pike (England's highest mountain), Skiddaw and the range which flanks Buttermere lake.
Here's my son on High Stile contemplating the view.
THANK YOU ALL for your marvellous suggestions on the last post for new markets for stories and fillers. Lots there for me to follow up, and if I get more details I'll post them up.
Meanwhile, although I'm working this week (all 3 days of it! Isn't it great?!) we're off on another holiday on Friday. My lovely Irish hubby decided he'd rather vacate the country than sit and watch a royal wedding, so we're off to Ireland to stay with his sister and escape the wedding fever. (I might have to barricade myself into my sister-in-law's living room to catch the wedding highlights, though.)

See you all next week! Enjoy the bank holidays!
