…and we must go!

Well, that’s what we said at the beginning of last week, and go we did, to Ambleside.

A fantastic week was had by all, watching the kiddos skitter up the slopes like mountain goats.  I…was more of a wheezy mountain troll, but it was totally worth it.

Being out there, in the wind and the sun (and even in a little bit of rain), it wakes you up.  It blows through you and reminds you that there is a whole wide world outside of your little old self.  With so much going on in our everyday lives, it’s a simple fact that’s very easy to forget.  For example, we’re moving house, going to a market next weekend, (Bethnal Green, folks!  Catch us there!) celebrating birthdays left right and center, working, parenting – some days it’s hard to catch your breath.

So this is just a little reminder, as the coming weeks and ALL THE THINGS that need doing stretch out in front of you – Look up, look around, look outward, and take a deep breath.

And if the mountains are calling you… go.
