... after a great holiday.
We spent 11 days away, 9 of which were on a steam train puffing round the UK. We were with our friends L & C and Scrappy and Mr Scrappy.
We all ate wonderful food (I'm back on the diet this weekend), saw wonderful scenery and stayed in some great hotels. My favourite hotel has to be the one in the Lake District, which is right in front of Lake Windermere, and where we were lucky enough to have a suite. I wish we could have spent more than one night there. The weather was interesting and in the space of one week we had everything from snow to a positive heatwave.
One evening we were having a discussion in the bar about how something works, and as a result, we then spent some time watching this mucky video. (Ha ha, I knew you wouldn't be able to resist having a look!) On the one free day we had, Scrappy and I visited a quilt shop (surprise, surprise) but neither of us found anything we really had to bring home with us.
I should have taken photos of the steam engines, the food and the scenery, but, in my usual fashion, I forgot, sorry, but because a post should always have a picture, I am including this one.
