This time last week we were in the middle of a family holiday down in the Lake District. We stayed in a cottage which my parents rented for the week in Bowness-on-Windermere, a place we've stayed before although last time I had just finished school and was waiting on my exam results! We had a really relaxing week mostly enjoying time wandering around Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside, feeding the ducks and feeding ourselves. We found some lovely wee shops including Agnes + Cat and Daisy Chain Studio, and our favourite foodie place, Homeground Cafe which we ended up visiting 3 times! If you're in the Lake District you should definitely make time to grab some delicious brunch at Homeground, not forgetting to take away some freshly baked doughnuts for after. On the Wednesday my Dad hired a little boat, which David took a turn driving, and we had a picnic out on the Lake! We ended our week away with an evening at Windermere Rocks where Them Beatles played, a fab night!
Now it's just over 8 weeks until Scotland's Trade Fair so we're back to business as usual and trying to finalise some festive designs. So glad we had that break to recharge us!
