I'm bored already! What to do in the rain with a seven year old? We cycled yesterday (in the rain), went shopping today, (still in the rain). Tomorrow?( it will still be raining) I think I might go into school and do some work...
Hoping for better next week - I want to tackle Scafell Pike! Will camp at Wasedale and walk from there. Might do Great Gable as well! But...not in the rain! I'm going to try a little campsite near the Wasedale Head Inn instead of the main campsite. It sounds more my style!
Pictures will be posted!

Can I go back on that 'I feel fine?' Just tried to walk to the toilet and realised how I do feel! OK I'm knackered, but you always are when you've got flu! I have a very aching back and a bad headache!
Thought i'd just put you all straight! BUT... I've had the hard skin on my feet sorted out tonight by my wonderful dog Barnie! Thank Barnie!

Pics from Great Langdale

Fabulous weekend at Great Langdale... rain and red wine... followed by sunshine and mountains. What better combination could there be?
Barnie the dog was knackered climbing Harrison Stickle along Stickle Gill!
Me and other half suitably buggered too!
If you have a dog, ascend Harrison Stickle via Dungeon Ghyll!
My dog is still aching and he's a border collie!
New tent is fantastic :) Took a little while to put up coz not done it before with new sun canopy but taking it down was a wiz! Vango venture 500 (£60, offer at Go Outdoors) and Vango Large Sun canopy (£38 from Jr leisure at Orrell, near Wigan) I can now face a one night camp without feeling depressed at having to spend hours with my Diablo! This is tent in part of my garden! (Complete with Barney dog!) And ... Harrison Stickle at Langdale too!
