~ An Autumnal break ~

I've had a week 'mostly' away from Facebook and Instagram, apart from 'checking in' and adding a few photos I haven't been actively reading group posts or other people's status updates. I must admit that I have missed some bits such as looking at people's lovely Instagram photos and chatting with the other ladies in the Like For Ever subscribers Facebook group.

We have had a beautiful week in the Lake District, visiting National Trust properties and enjoying the amazing scenery. Here is a snapshot of what we got up to:

A scenic walk from Wray Castle.

A day dedicated to all things 'Beatrix Potter' including Hill Top Farm (Beatrix Potter's Home and inspiration for Her stories), an Art gallery of her work that used to be the offices to her husbands solicitors and finished off with the 'World of Beatrix Potter' attraction. All of which were amazing and made me want to be 5 again!

Allan Bank and a lovely woodland walk with this stunning view.

A tapas meal with sombreros at Pedro's in Kendal.

A very friendly Robin at Townsend.

Finally a walk up to Aira Force waterfall near Ullswater.

As you can see we had a non stop week and have come home for a rest! We have had fantastic weather which is unusual for the Lake District as it is known for its rain. This doesn't document the very large quantities of cake that have been consumed over the week, my favourite was the Apple cake with toffee sauce.

Can't wait to get back in my craft room and get scrapping our adventures (especially as I dropped lucky on some fab supplies in TKMaxx this morning). 

Happy Crafting!
