The holidays are over and the new uniform and PE kit is all labelled ready for school tomorrow. We've had a nice summer, albeit a damp one.
Our week in The Lakes was great and the weather unbelievably kind, only raining on the last day.
We stayed at Wallabarrow, a National Trust farm in the Duddon Valley, run by my friend Chris.
A beautiful idylllic place, perfect for unwinding. http://www.wallabarrow.co.uk
Feeding the lambs was a joy.
However, feeding Penelope the pig, was like taking your life in your own hands......... I have never met such a ferocious animal.
The boys swam and fished in the River Duddon
and drove a motorboat on Lake Coniston.
and chilled in the garden, amongst the chickens.
Hmm, but the car decided to break down on the way home.......some lovely RAC chaps rescued us and brought us home. All part of the adventure.
