Our holiday was great fun and the weather was really very kind to us for the most part. My men had their legs out in shorts for two full weeks which is more than has been possible in Northern Ireland this summer.
One of my favourite things about staying in Ambleside is our early morning walk to the Lake (Windermere) to feed the ducks. It's just a really peaceful time of the day just before the hustle and bustle of the little holiday village gets into full flow.
The men in my life had loads of opportunity to get active and adventurous -

And, just in case you were in any doubt, my idea of adventure is ordering ice cream in a flavour other than Vanilla! Ripping, I know!
I knew that hubby would snap this pic of me with two pokes. I was just holding the second one while junior put on his coat (honest)!
|It was windy - hence the bad hair day!|
And generally, we just had fun being a family away from our normal routines -

I also had a wee day with Di and Catherine - chatter, laughter, sunshine, friends and sewing - what more could a girl ask for? (Borrowed the pics from Di's blog 'cos I was so busy talking I didn't take any myself!)
Ah, good times!
I did get some sewing done in the evenings, but that's for another post when I get myself organised and get through at least some of the mountain of laundry which now occupies every available surface in the utility room!
