All in all, I'd rather be here

..but unfortunately garden, cutting hedges and some outside work on the house have anchored us firmly at home, although we have managed a couple of days on the local hills. Thankfully, our next trip is not too far off but the destination is flexible. Thanks to Alan Rayner, Martin Banfield and Sir Hugh for providing interesting reading on their respective blogs - always worth a visit. Hopefully I'll be able to post something of interest soon!

Thanks for the mention. Very kind. I am in a bit of the same boat. The weather is not helping though. Off to the Lakes at weekend for another fell race job. Hope the weather is better than last time.

You're welcome Alan. I think the weather is improving from about mid-week so hopefully you'll enjoy some warm sunshine in the Lakes. Enjoy.

I would also rather be there. Alas I'm stuck in the office.
Mind you I've got plenty planned for later this month. Oggie 8 this Saturday, 3 day backpack somewhere quiet on the BH weekend and another overnighter on the 1st Sept. Also promised to take my 9 year old out for her first wild camping experience sometime soon which she is very excited about it.

Life has away of interfering and imposing its own agenda. On Friday next - the 17th - we head north, for Kingussie (with a couple of days stopover in North Berwick on the return leg).

We've stayed in North Berwick before but Kingussie will be new ground as a base; although we've spent time in the area. In all honesty, I cannot wait.

Hi Dave

I suppose being at home is self-inflicted in that we just plan to do all these jobs in August. I'm not sure that we'll do this in the future though.

Have a great holiday whatever your plans.

Thanks for the mention, Gibson, and I'm pleased to see you enjoyed your trip to the Lakes. You seem to have enjoyed reasonable weather and got a good photographic record. We got back home to find that a neighbour had mown our lawn, which was good news! Currently (like you) having a bit of a break due to non-walking commitments, but looking forward to the next trip in September.

You're welcome Martin. We're off again in September too and it can't come soon enough!
