I have nearly had fifty visits to my blog- hurray. I haven't really started to promote it yet as I haven't sussed out how it all works . Have looked at other blogs and I am starting to get an idea of how it all works. I am attracted to the ones which tell me about other parts of the world, and ones about the family life of other people.
My experienced blogger friend has suggested that I need a clearer focus, and this is good advice I think. For the moment I think I will concentrate on what it is like to be an 'offcomer' to the lake district. Like an insider guide ( I have lived here for about sixteen years) but not written by a true insider ( ie: a born and bred Cumbrian).
As you can see from the heading, the rain persists. I do feel sorry for all those people in tents, caravans and holiday cottages ( especially tents!!) who have chosen to have their holiday here.It is so beautiful here when it is dry ( and beautiful when wet but a lot more trying unless you are the undaunted and hardy fellwalking type).
So, later on, when I have finally done some work, I will endeavour to think about things to do with children when it rains in the lakes ( having a thirteen year old I have loads of experience of this one!). Or indeed, things to do without children in the lakes ( easy- head for the nearest nice pub....)
