Yesterday we got the train to Penrith and said goodbye to Mum then we got the bus to Keswick and walked half way up Skiddaw to Skiddaw bunkhouse.

When we got to the youth hostel there was another girl who was 9 called Elsa. We played lots of great games. I took a picture of her - see below

Today we walked up Skiddaw and almost literally got blown away but we didn't get any views because it was so foggy.

Then we came down and went to Keswick youth hostel and went to get supper from the street market and came back to cook it.

I will write more on Saturday.

Well done for walking up Skiddaw. I bet you sleep well with all this fresh air and exercise. Nice to meet someone nearly your own age I imagine. Great that you were immediately able to get along well enough to play great games. Made ox-tail stew last night. You have to leave it to cool overnight then remove the fat. Then I finished it off this evening and ate a third of it for supper with miniature boiled potatoes and tender stemmed broccoli. Yum. Also made some small almond and plum tarts and had one with thick cream. First session here with a new psychotherapy client. Always interesting, and moving, to do that, but I can't tell you anything about her because of confidentiality! The Christian Bookshop in Stroud is closing down and selling off their stock of candles cheap. Bought lots of small ones for next Christmas and two really tall medium thick ones for the mantel piece in front of the mirror. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Love David
