>Aira Force

>My holiday cottage is near to Aira Force, one of the Lake District’s more famous waterfalls, not far from where Wordsworth allegedly wandered lonely as a cloud. If I can’t find inspiration here, it’s nowhere to be found.

Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, eh? I’ll be in good company. I shall have to visit Hill Top and Dove Cottage.

I’ve been having fun rejigging the diary (always my most favourite activity), but at the moment I’m doing the edits and tweaks on the Christmas annual. There aren’t many and it’s nowhere near the headache that the first annual was, but it has to be done and the sooner I clear it the better I’ll feel.

The redesign of both the blog and the gig list are now complete, but I do have tabs on the gig list that need material copying into. I’ve had good feedback, though, and traffic seems to have increased as well.

    >Oh, it's lovely. I've driven through the Lake District, but only stayed overnight in Keswick, which I really liked, teapot museum and all. I hope you take photos!

    >Dove Cottage is interesting but don't miss Rydal Hall a few minutes down the road across from Rydal water. Wordsworth spent most of the time there. Its still a private home but full of fascinating facts and items.There are some lovely cafes and shops in Grasmere also.
