Having had over a week off work now there should have been ample time to blog but somehow... I blame it all on Diane and her family who have arrived from California and are forcing me to have a good time gadding about the country finding quintesessntial things for them to see. Seeing as my breakfast of boiled eggs in an egg cup with toast soldiers was the first thing they found exciting this quest has not been hard. And I confess that after doing it innocently once or twice, but then seeing the reaction, we might have been deliberately constructing sentences that commence, "Go past the castle and turn right...".
First we went to stay with my parents in the Lake District where we took in a ceramics fair at Hutton in the Forest.
More on that in a later post. Afterwards we went to Carlisle to wish my now nonogenarian Granny a Happy Birthday.
Fortunately this downpour came just as we sat down for afternoon tea. Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain....
