We've just arrived back, soggy and depleted from a week camping in the Lake District. Such a beautiful place ..... but so wet! We had a great time. The boys loved camping; being outdoors, collecting pebbles from streams, fishing, and all the rainy day activities. I loved setting up camp; hanging the bunting and sitting on a hot pink sun chair.....with a blanket! We drank hot chocolate made from Green and Black's, topped up with brandy to keep us going. The walks were magical, short but invigorating, the wind taking your breath away and filling up your soul with freshness and purity and space to think and breathe. I don't think the boys knew what to think when I stood, leaning into the wind and shouted "I'M ALIVE!" for all the sheep to hear.
