The plan was to spend a couple of nights in Keswick camping in the Lake District, before moving to Great Langdale for three nights to a different campsite.
Connie and I went together - we met at uni but now live far apart and it's fun to catch up when we can. She blogs too, and so I used part of her account of our trip as my journalling:
We took our tent down in the rain, and little glugs of rainwater disappeared into the inside of it. We packed it up, slightly hysterically, and drove to our next location, which was again, incredibly beautiful, and more than incredibly damp. By this point, we'd had enough. We went to the front desk, and asked if we could have a camping pod. The guy at the front desk said, "yeah......nothing worse than being really, really wet and cold, is there?" He seemed happy.
"What's the weather like for the rest of the week?" we wanted to know.
He looked at his little printed off Met office sheet.
"Probably snow," he said.
"Ha ha!" we said. "Ha ha ha ha ha!"
"Ha ha!" he agreed.
He was a cheerful sort of chap.
Supplies here are mainly from my new Studio Calico kit which cheered me up enormously on my return :D I'm also in love with two new punches and this one punches out tiny little stars. Actually, it's supposed to be a border punch that makes a border with little star-shaped hole, but I infinitely prefer using the pretty little star-shaped shrapnel as confetti.
I also can't get enough of those tiny letters.
