Hello Everyone, I hope you are having a lovely time. I am truly blessed at the moment as I am having a wonderful time. Tomorrow is my actual birthday, but as you know I've been celebrating for some time now and have no intention of stopping for a while.
This weekend my husband and I went up to Kendal for a short stay. Kendal is only one and a half hours drive up the M6 from us so it is nice and easy to get to.
The hotel we stayed in had a swimming pool which was wonderful. We were only there for one night but we managed to fit in quite a few swims.
We also did a lot of walking and sightseeing. We climbed up to Kendal Castle, which is just a ruin but has spectacular views across the Lake District.
We visited Kendal Parish Church which is beautiful - and found lots of angels.
I spoilt myself with a gorgeous ball of Juniper Moon Farm lace weight yarn (50% merino, 50% silk) from Williams' Wools - I just couldn't resist it and it is my birthday!
I managed to bash my toe in the swimming pool and I have a colourful and painful bruised toe now - the colours match my new yarn!
The sun shone and it wasn't too cold for walking around (we were well wrapped up) - just perfect.
Did I tell you that Kendal is only one and a half hour's drive away? - well coming home yesterday it took four and a half hours because the M6 was closed between Kendal and Lancaster! Oh well, the silver lining was that I had some knitting with me, so I got plenty done.
Have a good week. Bye for now.
