Have a Grasmere Platter at Green's. If you like cheese and ham, it's very nice. 8-)

We also wanted to try The Jumble Room and Sara's (both highly recommended), but they were closed on Monday.

Me, travel only for the good food? Mayyybeee. :D

Yeah. It took us about that long to drive up too, thanks to 2 accidents on the way there.

Only took us about 5 hours (+an hour at services) to drive back down on clear roads.

On the plus side you weren't in one of the accidents, think the return leg made up for it!

really wishing I was able to have tacked on a few extra days, seems such a shame not to make the most of the scenery!

Just taken a wander down to the Lake scouting for any good viewpoints. It's now tipping it down and I'm soaked to the skin. Have a table booked at the jumble room though, will report back on how good it is.

All the fun of a holiday in Britain ;)

I think that more often than not a spot of rain makes the scenery a little more sparkly

so the printer is set up - was pretty straightforward, the inks are easy enough to insert and it's good that they are set up as individual wells - might save a few quid?!

It ran an A3 draft print out scarily quickly - and it's currently making light work of an edge to edge A3 photo print... so far, so very impressed! (until I realise it eats inks for breakfast and they cost a fortune to replace :D )

The first set of cartridges have to load the printer system up so they seem to be consumed quicker, also I am convinced the manufactures only supply half filled ones with new printers. I always use original brand cartridges I know too many folks that have had problems with cheapies, buying on line is not always the cheapest for my Epsom Rymans is cheaper and they do the high capacity ones, it is worth seeing if there are HC versions for your printer cost more but last a lot longer

Was tipping down with rain just after visiting arrived. Hoping to have some sun tomorrow. I might just revisit Hardknott Pass. Only have a day and a half here, hard to choose what to do!

I buy my printer cartridges on ebay. I used to get palmed off with refills before I learnt to add "genuine" to my search terms. I these days I get more decent units than fake/refills. Still cheaper than shop bought.

I've got one of those printer refill companies about 200yds from my house. Really cheap, great quality and more importantly a local trade. I always use them, as does most locals.

Thanks everyone, any more ideas as we are still short of a few

Blomey, I'd totally forgot about the 52! Went through a bit of a rough patch which forced me to put my camera down for a while and never remembered to jump back in

Going to do another next year?

Not sure....one thing it has made me realise is how hard Kevin kept must have worked for his 365

I've been having a think about the " chair project " I mentioned yesterday and thought I'd run this past the thread, as you know my brother died after a 20 year fight against cancer earlier a
In the year and during that time he was always raising money for various charities that helped him in that time. My thought is that I should use the images from this project to make a calendar and or book to sell with the profits going to charity, probably the last that helped him, as I think this would give something back and hopeful do some good.
Would this be a good idea or is the market saturated with such things?

I think it has strong ideas both artistically and the cause could definitely work.
