... the snow. We carried on through Bowness and down past Windermere, somewhere we traditionally avoid like the plague. Lots of musings about what it would be like in summer, possible camping trip on the horizon?

... out evening of sausages and mash, with Nana friendly gravy. Kids were very good going to bed despite having slept in the car. Must be the northern air! I ended up in bed with Bella, who woke up just as I was going to bed, poor poppet isn't very well, full of cold and coughs so I stayed in the little bed with ...
