Penrith Castle sets in a beautiful park. It was built at the end of the 14th century. The location of the castle was not the highest point, but a former Roman fort site and a part of the old ruins were used for their defensive function. You can read more about its history on English Heritage’s website. As the castle is in a park, anyone can sit anywhere, so one can have a picnic in the middle of the castle. That is romantic.

These days I was annoyed with a few things. I am working on getting past them, but I’m annoyed I was annoyed by them. On top of that, I saw some nasty comments on twitter because people do things differently. I wanted to say something, but I’ve restrained myself. I imagine that person didn’t even realize she was mean to others. It was not my place to argue with her, each to their own. Once again, making this good things list made me feel better. 1. Dress from Nine West. I found in TKMaxx a gorgeous dress by Nine West. Not only it’s beautiful, but it was a bargain too. I might have to make a OOTD post to show it off. 2. Olympics. My husband and I (and sometimes the dog too) are watching the Olympic games. I like shooting and Edward Ling took bronze in Men’s Trap. Team GB took a few medals at swimming and diving, but I didn’t watch those. So far team GB won 12 medals. I watched fencing and it was fab, I also watched gymnastics. I saw canoe slalom and it was a really fun sport to watch, but it so demanding to try for myself. I can’t say I was too keen on Judo, it seemed boring, although the final I saw last evening was fab. I can’t wait for the Taekwondo, that should be interesting. I’ve been to a Taekwondo competition many years ago and it was fascinating. Both my husband and I did martial arts at Uni, so we are both eager to see this sport. I have to admit I liked road cycling too, although I didn’t watch the whole race, it was too long (6h for Men and 4h for Women). 3. Bake Off. In a couple of weeks, Bake Off 2016 will start and I’m going to bake along them this year too, here is what I baked last year for GBBO bake along. I will join a linky and, like last year, I will be away with work (and a couple of days off between work commitments). 4. Trying new ingredients. I went to the Chinese supermarket and I bought a lot of ingredients, all these from the picture. Half of them are new for me. I also took a couple of packs of Konjac pasta that I want to try. I like to experiment and new ingredients fuel my imagination. 5. Pinterest. I started using Pinterest more and I love it. I think I should pin more instead of scrolling through lots and lots of pictures, but I get distracted by them and I forget to pin. I mainly look at food, but I will also search for crafts and clothes alteration. 6. Work. The easiest way to have a chat about the things we need to sort out is by going to a local coffee shop and enjoy a drink (cake might also be involved too) while talking and setting up lists with deadlines. It’s proper work and it’s necessary. Both of us are working from home and most of the time something happens, like an email or a phone call that distract us. I like having coffee in a coffee shop instead of having a meeting in my office, as it happened at my last job. Everything is more relaxed and it’s nicer. 7. Festus’s quirkiness. One of the quirky things he does almost every time we walk near a front garden is to check if the cat is outside. Festus had a squabble with the cat a couple of months ago and he knows that the cat might be in the 2nd garden, so he checks to see if the cat is still there so he can chase him (the cat is a male). Obviously, I will look in the garden too, to make sure the cat is not there and if there is to pay extra attention when we pass.

The waterfall is owned by the National Trust for more than 100 years. There are two car parks, in the main one there is a gift shop, a picnic area and the tearooms. We arrived late, at ~7pm, and it was relatively crowded, but in summer that might be excepted. There isn’t a fee to visit the waterfall, but the car park is free only for members. The main force falls 70 feet. Above the waterfall there is a stone footbridge that can be crossed. The views are beautiful from there too. The views while you are going to the waterfall from the overflow car park are stunning.

We’ve been last year to Wray castle, near Windermere lake and we both loved it. This time we’ve went a little further north. It was a packed weekend, with lots of things to do. I already blogged about Puzzling Place and I will write about the rest of the things we’ve seen in Lake district in the next weeks. We managed to do a lot of things considering we’ve been away for only 2 nights. We’ve been to Ullswater lake twice, as it was such a lovely place. We’ve been with the caravan, of course. We all enjoy camping with the caravan so much (Festus included). This was our view, a small field with sheep (very talkative sheep).

One of the places we’ve visited was Puzzling Place in Keswick. There is a shop with lots and lots of interesting puzzles and games. Some of them are available to try to solve in the Puzzle Area. For the World of Illusion there is a fee of £3.75 per person. I would say it takes 1 hour to see and try everything as some of the exhibits can be crowded. We went on a Saturday and it was packed. It’s not only for kids, we had fun and some of the puzzles are more for adults. I think it’s a perfect indoor family attraction for all the family. I had to start with this picture, I love it. The World of Illusion has a couple of rooms with different themes. This is the Anti-Gravity Room. It made me a little dizzy, but it’s so much fun. There is a chair on a rail that is going up and these steps.

I would rather spend my time cooking or sewing. This is why my husband and I arranged our home to be as easy to maintain as possible considering we both work from home and we have a dog too. We’ve bought a carpet cleaner, a powerful Dyson vacuum cleaner, our furniture has lots of doors to hide from dust as much as we can. I also use as many cute storage boxes as I can. I was delighted to hear about Hassle cleaning service* in Liverpool. What I like most about the service is that it can be used regularly or as a one-time thing. Even though my home is as mess-free as possible, sometimes when we have to work long hours there isn’t any time for cleaning. In those situations I would like a flexible service. Hassle has vetted cleaners that are interviewed by them and checked by a third party. Another great thing about them is that the cleaner can be paid online with debit/credit card, after the clean was made. Furthermore, there isn’t a contract or monthly fees and you can manage everything online. The cleaners are self-employed and they get work as close to their homes as possible. I looked on the booking system and I can choose a cleaner that is ok with pets. For an one-off clean the fee is £12/hour, this is the service I would use. The fee for repeat cleans is £10/hour. In Liverpool, their services include kitchen cleaning, oven cleaning, spring cleaning, deep cleaning, ironing and so on. The cleaners are reviewed by other hassle customers. Before booking, you can choose to remove a cleaner from the shortlist if you wish to do so. After the booking is made, the first cleaner form the shortlist to respond will get the job. I think the system is great. The story behind the service is lovely. The company started in 2011 while one of the co-founders was trying to find a piano teacher online. Teddle was launched as a platform for finding different services. As the demand for home cleaning grew, Teddle was re-branded into Hassle, as an online cleaning marketplace. * Post in Collaboration with Hassle.

My husband and I went for a 5k run, we’ve been to London, strawberry picking, Harrogate. I made afternoon tea at home, I went to a blogger event and it finished with an amazing weekend away in Cumbria. I will blog about the fab places we’ve been to in Lake District this month. Day 183. Festus waiting for us. Day 184. On my way to the Color Run. Day 185. Haworth, a beautiful English village. Day 186. The sky at 9 o’clock. Day 187. Our “wild” pigeon is waiting for his lunch. He doesn’t seem too bothered that I am taking a lot of pictures of him, only a couple of meters away. He is not bothered if we are in the garden and he will have his lunch while Festus is relaxing. Day 188. St. Paul’s, on a day-trip to London. Day 189. Tea I got from a lovely Twinings shop in London. Day 190. The Clematis in my garden is in bloom. Day 191. Festus was waiting for the door to open, so he could play in the garden. He wasn’t bothered by the rain. Day 192. My 2nd lesson to learn how to ride the bike. In the afternoon I’ve shared another pictures, of a duck with her cute ducklings, you can see it here. Day 193. A bunch of flowers got from the reduce to clear section for just 50p. They look amazing even after a few days. Day 194. A slate cake stand I bought that day. I wanted a cake stand for a while and this one was exactly what I was looking for. Day 195. I spotted a beautiful school while out shopping. Day 196. Festus, playing with his toy. Day 197. I received the welcome pack for the Caravan Club, we signed up as members. Day 198.

Completely dry tank, as we are turning towards the petrol station to fill it up. I told my husband it takes a lot of skill to get to 0 exactly as you get in the petrol station. Day 201. Pick your own. I got strawberries, tayberries and raspberries and I also had a lot of fun picking them. Day 202. One of the lilies from my garden was in bloom. Day 203. My new business cards, ordered for an event. I forgot to take them with me. Day 204. Baked waffles with walnut preserve, made in my new waffle baking tray. Day 205. Chocolate and almond bites.
