Cakes and lakes

We're back! We've just spent a lovely holiday in the Lake District but boy was it wet!

When it wasn't raining too hard we did some walking, the little people loved climbing up the rocky paths to see the views. We climbed Latterbarrow, that's Lake Winderemere down there!
We climbed part of Stickle Ghyll in the Langdale Valley, (we had to bribe the little ones with a kinder egg if they made it to the bridge which they did!).

When it was too wet for walking we spent quite a few sessions at one of my favourite places..

where they do the BEST CAKES in the WHOLE of the Lake District!

So we had a lot of these...
and whiled away some rainy spells browsing their shop of lovely things.. (a few purchases were made - I'll share tomorrow...)

And of course all the rain meant I could spend some time doing a lot of this..

All that rain means I am halfway there now with the blanket!

That's it from me for now. Best catch up with the enormous amount of washing and ironing and tidying that always needs to be done after a trip away :-(

Will share more photos tomorrow...

Hope the sun is shining wherever you are xxxx


  1. Hi Sally!
    I've just found you via Victoria Rose Paper crafts..what a lovely blog you have!
    Welcome back and thank you for sharing your holiday! Looking forward to your purchases.. ;-)

  2. ooh, all those lovely photos of the Lake District and all those names you mentioned brought back so many memories of holidays spent there when the boys were young. I love it there so much. We always rented a cottage somewhere, and had some wonderful experiences. My most favourite place is still the very first one we stayed at, Wasdale Head Hall Farm, it was just glorious.

  3. Glad you had a lovely holiday ~ the lake district is so beautiful, even in the rain. The little cake place looks lovely and there is nothing better than tea and cakes after a long walk. I am really looking forward to seeing your holiday purchases too :O)
