I have recieved a wonderful present from Grace - just to cheer me up.
It's a 1939 edition of the Penguin Guide to the Lake District.
This little book has inspired me to go and visit more often. The place names are so delightful - Buttermere, Grisedale, Tilberthwaite and Eskdale.
The only problem can be the weather - a bit bleak in winter - so maybe when the Spring comes!
