Paul has been away for a few days (he's on his way home now...) staying in this beautiful old farmhouse in Penrith which is in the North Eastern part of our Lake District. Such an amazing part of the country...you may remember that we spent a week there, in the South Lakes, last June. Home to so many famous historical figures who took their inspiration from the breathtaking landscape...Beatrix Potter of course! And William Wordsworth...
this is known, apparently, as 'Wordsworth's Waterfall' but I'm not sure if that's because he wrote about it or lived near it!
Paul has been hiking around the hills and fells with a few like-minded friends...I couldn't go as I have too much work here and also dogs weren't allowed in the house (can you believe that?!) so it would have been no fun for Alice at all...but he has been sending me some beautiful photos which I thought I'd share with you.
These were taken yesterday on a long walk around Ullswater Lake....on one of the few sunny days they've had on the trip...
you can see why I fell in love with the area can't you?
The good news is that we've booked a (dog friendly) cottage in the South lakes again this summer...and after seeing the beauty of the landscape again, I almost can't wait!!
I also wanted to thank everyone so much for the lovely comments you have been leaving on my last post...I can't wait for the draw on Monday and only wish that everyone could win!
I live with my gorgeous husband, Paul and our wire fox terrier, Alice, in a small country town.I have cooked professionally for 30 years (boy, does that sound OLD!) and now run Sugar Moon, an online brownie business, as well as a small wholesale bakery, which I love. In any rare spare time I'm working on my first novel and a cookbook based on my business. I love Mozart above most things, but also adore reading, movies,visiting different countries,walking Alice, eating & all things foodie as well as spending time with my beloved friends and family....I hope you enjoy my blog!
