It's been far too long since we've posted any walks on here, but better late than never I guess?!
There's been some pretty good reasons that we haven't been able to get over to the Lake District. The main one was that not long after our last trip up the fells we bought our 1st house (whoop, hooray & happy days). This did however take up most of our summer, stripping rooms back to the bare shell (including completely removing floors) and rebuilding it to how we want. Very fulfilling to do, just pretty time-consuming.
A second, and much more exciting reason, was a new addition to our walking party... Meet Willow:
Obviously she wasn't able to come walking with us until she was a bit bigger, which she now is [below] so we were looking forward to taking her on her 1st fell.
The final reason was that my trusty old fiesta finally gave up the ghost and went to the great scrap yard in the sky. Towards the end of her life she just wasn't up to any kind of long-distance journeys (read; "I didn't trust the car to be in anyway safe to take anywhere, on any road, ever!").
So that brings us to here and now. New car, new dog, spare time. Better get some fells done then!
