Friday 1st April
Tidying up and goodbyes to the Follows and Marshalls. Elsie joined us for a wet and rather colder foray up to the beck at the back, to check in the frogspawn and enjoy more fishing, finding all sorts of interesting thing, including shrimps & caddies fly larvae shell.
Back to the cottage for lunch, a stove, car and stories. Packed up & said our sad (but rather damp) goodbyes to the cottage.
Rheged for ‘toddler and other tales’: M loved it, F seemed to enjoy it, H refused to go in: how to help her overcome her complete fear of the dark and noise (following all the local fireworks 2 years ago)??!!
Driving rain as we said our sad goodbyes and set off for the long drive home…Record time I think…unlike our last journey home when the M6 was a car park;-)
