the lake district (if you're wondering, this is post 31, 298th of mine + petie's travels around england together. ok, so maybe more like 10th). it's one of my favourite places in england (even though it rains three hundred + sixty-four days of the year). it's full of stone cottages + stone walls + tiny shops + villages hidden away in the hills + lakes around nearly every corner + tea shops galore + kendal mintcake + hikers + the freshest of fresh air (as opposed to normal fresh air.). we stayed with a fantastic family, who I've known for ages (and are as equally as crazy as we are) and love dearly. we spent our days in the lake district getting soaked (more like, drenched), kinda (sorta) getting a teensy bit lost, drinking elderflower cordial by the river, catching wee buses that travelled through all the main villages and walking around windemere lake and making up stories in kendal castle and gaping at grasmere's hills and getting coffee in ambleside and accidentally catching the wrong bus and sitting on stone walls in the sunshine and searching for kendal mintcake and talking about everything (and anything) and praying together in the quiet moments and deciding that we should definitely move there and playing games with the kids and drinking coffee and watching movies. it was a relaxing but definitely adventurous few days of fantasticness. petie was particularly gob-smacked (if you don't know what that is, then look it up you heathen) by grasmere and how utterly gorgeous + tiny + majestic + adorable is was (actually, I was gob-smacked too). we both agreed that it was our favourite village in the lake district and made plans for her + her family to move there (no but, really, they should do that, right?). we ended the trip with hot paninis in a lil cafe + chai tea in a wee tea shop, because that's all trips should end. agreed? agreed.
p.s. don't forget I'm going to be doing a q+a post on here soon, so if you have any questions (serious ones, strange ones, silly ones, super ones, alliteration for the win ones.), don't forget to ask! coz I'm expecting ridiculously amazing ones from you all. so don't fail me.
