Every time I sit down to write about these photos I feel like I’m just going to spoil them with my words – how can you write about these beautiful views without detracting from the photos? My friend and I and our two boys had a picnic lunch up at Barden Fell today. It was simply stunning. TTB found every single bit of sheep and rabbit poo, tried to munch on a few rocks (WEIRD child) and fell over a few times and ended up stinking of sheep poo. He was completely filthy from head to toe (the dust and sand and dirt had stuck fast to the suncream I slathered him in, lovely), fell asleep in the car on the way home and I had to carry him up to his bed … but oh so dirty I had to spread a fleecy blanket over the bed (whilst holding stinky sleeping child) before I could lay him on it. I quite like seeing him all covered in dirt as you can tell he’s had a good time. Both boys did and they enjoyed each other’s company, in the brief moments when they did the same thing; they seemed to take it in turns to play with the ground/run on ahead!
P.S I soaked him in a bubbley bath for half an hour this afternoon but he’s still all grim and sticky so he’s going to need another soaking tomorrow morning!
