I like a bit of walking, a bit of camping, a bit of cycling, a bit of lake swimming and sandwiches - cheese with jam mainly. Between sandwiches I also like a bit of drawing and painting.

I've been practicing my painting recently so thought I'd share my attempt at Al Pacino looking a bit annoyed.

Just learnt about Project Wild Thing and joined The Wild Network. It’s a project to get kids outdoors and it’s something I’ve been trying to do with my children for the last ten years (without them moaning too much and me putting them off for life).

Those old Lake District poets liked to exaggeration a bit, but how dare they call our beautiful national park a ‘barren and frightful’ place... unless of course it was.

I love it at Fellside, near Caldbeck - one minute out of the car and it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere

Alfred Wainwright didn’t start work on his first pictorial guide until he was 45 years old, what was he playing at? What was he doing for those 45 wasted years?

After thinking about Lake District pubs too much, I wrote a post about them - and now I want to go to the Old Dungeon Ghyll immediately, but it's 8.45 on a Wednesday morning...

Just been thinking about my favourite Lake District pubs (a great way to spend a Thursday morning). Here they are, most of them are fairly obvious, but if they're good they're good:

Tweedies Bar - Grasmere
Wasdale Head Inn – Wasdale
Drunken Duck – Between Ambleside and Hawkshead
Old and New Dungeon Ghyll – Langdale
Dog and Gun – Keswick
The George - Keswick
The Old Crown – Hesket New Market
Kirkstile Inn – Loweswater
The Crown Inn – Coniston
Oddfellows Arms - Caldbeck

There's loads more but these are the one's I keep returning to depending on where I've been walking.
