Sorry I’ve been quiet. Had a few days camping with le housemates in the lakes. More specifically Patterdale on Ullswater. V pretty. V picturesque. V stunning. My 11th time there. Never gets boring. Lots of lovely walks. Lots of lovely views. The occasional military aircraft flying through the valley. No phone signal. Lovely lovely lovely people that all say hi to you. Would not want to go anywhere else for a countryside break. Will miss it next year when I’m in Russia. Some fabulous memories over the years. Shout out to Patterdale Hall and the fabulous staff there. Also to the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team, who do a wonderful job.
