Hi gals, sorry my post's have been a little less frequent, I decided to take a short break away, with my hubby (Ash) and recharge my bloggy batteries. We stayed in Keswick in the Lake District at the Mary Mount hotel a charming 1930s building in the UK, featured here, visiting, Grassmere and Windermere, some of you may be familar with this area of the world. We visited the famous gingerbread house of the Lake District, which is 100 years old, the world of Beatrix Potter, Taffy Thomas's story telling house, took a boat trip into the centre of Keswick and visited the Cars to the Stars museum, I got to see Harry Potters car, lucky me! The bat mobile from the film and a gorgeous pink car from Thunderbirds!
It's great being a tourist in your own backyard and I hope my photo's make up for the postcard I would have liked to have sent you.Have a lovely week!

We pretended this boat was moored here to help us with a quick escape to our secret island!

Famous gingerbread house 100 years old! I love the gingerbread made to a secret 100 year recipe, passed down by the talented Sarah Nelson, an amazing women who educated local children with her gingerbread alphabet letter's when her own children passed away. I wish I could send you all a piece of this delicous stuff, I buy every Christmas. More like a chewy biscuit than cake, click here Grasmere Gingerbread to find out more about the history of the shop and the lovely things they sell.
We visited the home of Taffy Thomas famous story teller, who I wanted to tell stories at my wedding, he wears an amazing coat, patch worked with character's from his tale's!
