Week Scrapbook: The Lake District

Today I got back from a week in the Lake District for my parent's 25th wedding anniversary. It is one of my most favourite places to be; so calming, friendly and I can't get enough of the fresh air. I'm feeling the post-holiday blues at the moment and have been drinking tea from my new sheep mug (sheep are my favourite animals, they're so cute) and eating chocolate to try and help.

This was my first real outing for my big camera (Nikon D3200), and I'm pretty pleased with how the snaps came out - considering the weather was very grey for the majority of the week. The above are just a selection and I'll post more in the coming week.

I had the most fantastic week of walking, playing Cluedo, getting to grips with an Aga and spending a lot of time moaning about the Great British Weather. It was nice to be in an environment completely the opposite to London and take some time out to reflect and not worry about work, flat hunting, bills and all other grown up crap.

I hope you had fantastic weeks.

  1. Lovely photographs - especially the sheep, I don't see too many of those these days in Michigan. We use to always have family holidays in the Lakes, Keswick in particular, about three times a year as I was growing up. In fact my first birthday was in Keswick, it's such a beautiful area.

    1. Three times a year makes me so jealous! I can only hope I get to go up there more frequently than once a year! x

  5. Im glad everyone needs some time out from being an adult. Had a welsh cake binge yesterday while having an internal moan about how exhausting adult life is. Excited to enjoy my own tea out of a sheep mug and field photos when I return to Wales. Lush photos.

  6. Your pictures are great and the lake district seems like the perfect place to test drive a camera. I've never been there before (for shame) but some friends of mine are planning a weekend there in May - pretty excited. Totally agree with needing a break from London and adult responsibilities x
