Evening Boys and Girls, I'm back from the wilds of Cumbria.

I'm not going to bother catching up on the News feed of my journal - I've got around 200 people entries to read through as it is.

Cumbria was wet for the first two days until we moved campsite, at which point the weather took a turn for the better.

I made it up 3 hills (about 1600 feet each time) and one lovely walk down the side of Lake Windermere. Ate out at several nice pubs/restaurants. Spent lots of time being drooled over by Tara (now 9 months old and hideously disobedient unless she thinks you have a good reason for her to come to Heel). Watched "Everest2 on IMAX.

Generally had a good time. Am very grateful to Anna and Sana for looking after Denver (now asleep on my lap) and slightly worried that as soon as I left the area things descended into farce and chaos. I'm not sure it's safe for me to leave you guys on your own.

Oh, and cheers to the 21 of you who actually wanted to see my naked body (and Nathan, who's a doofus). You're all quite, quite mad.
