.Here we are in sunny Cumbria (not true, it was sunny yesterday but has just started raining). We are staying in a really lovely spot close to Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel - the home of Sticky Toffee Pudding (oh dear). Dick and I had the first day here on our own (with Otto of course), and our friends Doris & Stuart joined us yesterday, it's really nice to catch up. Unfortunately Doris is a very bad influence and Dick is easily led, last night they consumed (in Doris's words) a bit of wine; a bit of whisky; a bit of gin, and Dick had a couple of beers as well. Paracetamol was required this morning, and Dick says he still has a slight headache (the time is now 16.04!!!). Notwithstanding this we have walked several miles over Hampsfell today, and stopped for a much needed cup of tea (Dick says no alcohol today). We have four dogs with us on this holiday, Otto and Buddy ran amok over the fell like there was no tomorrow, and Toby and Evie were rather more sedate. Needless to say Otto, being blond, looks much filthier than the others - we may have to see if we can fit him in the shower!
I have brought a few new necklaces to put on the website while we're here - so if we do get some bad weather that is what I'll be doing. So it's always worth a look on the New Items page.
