Had A Positive Couple Of Hours Spent In Keswick, Cumbria

John will be off tomorrow (Bank Holiday) and Tuesday (opticians at 3pm) but it was today we decided to drive to Keswick as we thought it might be a tad quieter than tomorrow, especially, with it being a public holiday. Carlisle is quite isolated so a car is a must. Fortunately, John has a car otherwise we'd be screwed lol. Keswick is around 30 miles away which is nothing for John has he travels 20 miles each way to work in Penrith. He said he didn't mind taking me out today, which was nice of him! Anyway, the best thing about being in Keswick were seeing holidaymakers with their dogs. Keswick is walking country as it's slap bang in the middle of the Lake District, so many of them bring their dogs as well. Cuteness overload I must say! We did eat in a pub but it wasn't exactly a gourmet meal but I didn't mind as it meant that I had a break from cooking, something I generally do most days. It made a change not to do any of that and I'm sure many of you out there agree that having a break from the mundane stuff in life is the best thing ever, even if it's for a short time. In actual fact, I reckon we'd get bored if we did this sort of thing every weekend. I remember these little trips out more because they are rare. Do you know what I mean? Have you been out and about today? Did you have a good time?

So nice you got out Janey and a lovely drive to boot it sounds like. Yes I do recall days like that, but not happening now. Still the memories are so valuable to me. We would go all over the place, pubs, lakes, fields, streams lolz on the bike, the motorbike, the car and on and on. Golden days.

Awww, I can tell you've enjoyed yourself. I did too...and you're right. Such memories are precious and I certainly don't need to take selfies to ensure a good time lol. In fact I don't even have a mobile phone at the moment (I rely on my digital camera instead) but even then I don't use it all the time. I don't need to. It's all in my heart, my head and my diary.

My husband and I go for a walk every morning when I get off of work. That is our outing and we enjoy our walks.

Good for you. I really should walk more than I do but I shall be going to Mum's on Friday so I always walk more when I'm at her house as we're out and about every day, more or less.

What a beautiful part of the country to live near. It sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day. I have not been out and about yet, but I do feel a walk down to the local supermarket coming on lol...

Occasionally taking a trip ,eating in a pub and watching the world go by would enliven your life and make you break out of your daily routine .
