Holidays

Happy New Year!

We have just about settled in back home after our two week Christmas/New Year break. I thought you might like to see some photos from our time away.

Although the UK was in the grip of a deep freeze we managed to make our journeys safely, even if some of them took longer than normal.

Josh and I met in Devon where our parents lived in the same town. However, this summer Josh’s parents moved up north to the Lake District, so this year we had to travel between families. I actually think I prefer this way of doing things. The six hour drive on boxing day was a bit of a drag but it meant that we were able to focus on having quality time with the family we were with and be totally engaged with what they were doing.

I’ve not spent much time in the Lake District before so it was good to do a bit of exploring. On Christmas eve we went to a lake called Tarn Hows. However, when we got there it was completely frozen and we were able to walk across it to the island in the middle!

It freaks me out that it normally looks like this (source), and we were right in the middle! I don’t know how thick the ice was.

The rest of the time we spend walking, eating and playing games. It was a great Christmas, and a good end to a WONDERFUL year.

    I did not know you were in Cumbria. We could have met up for a cup of tea! Although I’m sure you were quite busy enough visiting family.

    Thanks for your comment the other day, hopefully I can keep up with the whole 365 project for the rest of the year.

    I’m quite jealous that you got to got to walk over a frozen lake! My grandad likes to tell stories about people being able to take a horse and cart over lake windermere and light huge bonfires. Sounds amazing doesn’t it!
