My topsy-turvy life

By Rathmandu

Where are you taking me?

We picked the best day of the weekend to go for a proper walk. Although the car park at Snailbeach was pretty full we didn't see too many people out and about, and all of them keeping a distance, as we made our way up past all the old lead mining buildings. We had a bit of an explore of these before making our way up through the trees and up on to Resting Hill. A quick easy climb to the top for a picnic* and to let Owen wander about with the occasional shot of 'no!' as he looked like he might be about to try eating sheep poo. Quavers are definitely preferable*. Despite my nerves carrying Owen and Aaron's reticence about the whole thing, we all made it to the top, unscathed and proud*.
...then it was just back down the way we'd come.

Technically this is a family portrait as you can see Aaron and Louisa in the reflection of my sunglasses.

Excursions and exertions done for the day, it was back home for a barbecue and a paddling pool. Bank Holidays the way they should be done.

All non-essential shops will be allowed to reopen from 15th June. The thought of that does fill me with a certain amount of dread, but if they take all the precautions and social distancing on board we should be OK I suppose...unless people decide that the rules only really apply to other people.
