It's almost tradition that I spend the week of my birthday in Grasmere. I have been 2 years in a row and I am booked in again for this year. Not so many photo opportunities this year, but I did see some very early snow.
In late 2007 I made the decision to return to walking and climbing in the mountains.
Oh lordy! I was overweight and badly out of shape. That's all changed now and I'm pushing myself towards a dream of climbing in the Alps one day.
