It has been a really busy weekend- the crop on saturady, then yesterday down to Manchester. Sadly for Jack Man U did not play well, and were beaten by Arsenal. that boy is jinxed-it seems everytime we manage to get tickets Man U get beaten. Emily and I went shopping at the Lowry outlet. There is a new craft shop opened there, but nothing to get excited about. It is next to Papermill and sells similar things. I did buy some ribbon though, and some more ribbon (actually they were chokers) from Mikey jewellers. We also went to the Imperial War museum. The audio visual display about children and war so very moving- from WW2 evacuees, to jewish recounts of their war time experiences, and to the child soldiers in Africa. It was like an AV scrapbook. We stayed at the Travelodge at Preston. We love Travelodges- you always know what you are getting and no-one fusses or bothers you- great. It is really pretty around Chorley too.
Today we had a fabulous walk near Ambleside, Fabulous views from the hills and afterwards Malcolm and the kids had a little adventure rock climbing into a cave. But next time we go out it would help to a) make sure the camera battery is charged and b) make sure the memory card has been placed back in the second camera, and not left in the card reader. I did manage to get a few pics though not half as many as the weekend warranted.
