Hey there I’ve just had a week off work ( not that I am putting in many hours at the moment, it’s the quiet period before Christmas) so I thought I would join in with Natalie’s Sunday Sevens.
We took a few days off to spend time at the caravan. Definitely noticing the cold more there now though. Having bought hot water bottles and an electric blanket ( oh yes!) we should be toasty enough on our next couple of visits, before we close it down for the winter. Did a couple of walks including a circular 4 mile route from the Bowder Stone at Rosthwaite to Grange. I can now tick this large Andesite Lava boulder off my copy of 111 Places In The Lake District That You Shouldn’t Miss. 🙂
We also had a wander up to The Beacon Tower which stands on a woody fell above Penrith. That morning the skies were a brilliant blue!
Wil booked us into the Haweswater Hotel for a night as an early birthday present. Hugo here looks a bit like a Devil Dog. 🙂
And here he is at the caravan watching Wil make a cheeseboard. His eyes are on the prize!
We gave in and bought a TV and blu ray player for the van. We don’t have WiFi up there so no Netflix etc. A chance to get reaquainted with our old dvds! Watched two seasons of the fun flatmates comedy Spaced from 1999-2001. It’s hilarious!
This aft I went for Bottomless Brunch at Escape in Clitheroe. My friend Fi brought her daughter Bronte ( here she is above with her god mother’s 🙂 ) and she proved very helpful in ordering us our ‘ bottomless’ glasses of Prosecco from the bar downstairs. Without her I’m not sure our Bottomless Brunch would have been very bottomless! Not the best service but a pleasant afternoon out anyways.
All in all I have had a very nice Birthday week. 🙂
Thanks for dropping by. ❤️

Hope you had a good birthday 🎂
Thanks I did. Feels like I’ve been celebrating all week!
Bottomless glasses of prosecco! Brilliant!
Bottomless brunch is a nice idea , the staff were downstairs though and only brought our top ups up when we sent Bronte down to tell them. They should have been more forthcoming with them really. Apart from that it was great. X
They should have. Although I can see why they wouldn’t be encouraged to be speedy x
What a great way to celebrate your birthday a whole week off and a week of doing fun things. Weirdly we talked about going up to Penrith Beacon this week and I can’t remember why we ended up not going, would have been a coincidence if it we had met up there!
It’s a nice little walk. It’s great finding these local places when we stop up there. 🙂
Sounds like a great week. Happy Birthday to you (a bit late!)
Thanks Louise! X
Happy birthday week – sounds great! And you have a new job, even better (I think).
Thank you. Yes I’ve worked there since July, just a local cafe. X
What a great birthday week. Love the devil dog!
Haha, yes he looks very devilish in the picture. 🙂 X
Sounds good to me! Belated birthday greetings 🙂 🙂 It’s a beautiful part of the world, even if you do have to stay cosied up with videos sometimes. It’s one of those wet and wild days here- a much rarer occurrence and with Mick scheduled to lead a walk. I’m going nowhere just yet- I’ve just remembered it’s Black Friday!
Thanks Jo. The weather here is a little warmer, but loving the electric blanket anyways. 🙂
Happy birthday 🥳
Thank you, I had a great birthday week. 🙂
