Places that I like…..

Just back from the Lake District which has lots of places that I like….. beautiful lakes the most beautiful of which in my opinion is Derwentwater in the Borrowdale Valley.

Derwentwater on a rainy day

Where this year we met lots of sheep – including one that looked like Andrew Marr

… its the ears!!

Tea at Temporary Measure

We had tea in our favourite little tea shop, Temporary Measure in Keswick , where they are quite rightly of the opinion that ‘there is nothing in the world that can not be improved by the prescence of tea and biscuits’  Believe me this toffee cake was delicious…..

And we also visited   The Theatre by the Lake  also in Keswick –  it works on a repertory system so you can see different shows most nights of the week if you want – and depending on which ones you pick you can have the fun of seeing the same actors in different roles eg this year we saw the actor Matthew Vaughan as the frantic Director in ‘Noises Off’ by Michael Frayn, a showbizzy entertainer being set up for a media sting in ‘ Dumb Show’ by Joe Penhall and an American Hostage tortured by his own fears in ‘Soneone Who’ll Watch Over Me’ by Frank McGuinness…..

We’ve not seen a bad show yet and we’ve been going there for about 5 or 6 years….
