Whitestones Fell Race with Helen

Today I made a modest fell running comeback and joined Helen at the Helm Hill Runners Winter league race near Newby Bridge. Despite the rain it was great fun. Helen did very well and I was quite pleased too. Angus came along for support but couldn't run bacause of a cold. Great day!

Cyclo cross racing for Angus Dave and I

Today saw the end of the Cyclo cross season and ended on a positive with Angus Dave and I all racing. Dave made a promising comeback from his shoulder operation with a 3rd overall, whilst Angus and I put in a spirited performance in the Beacon Park mud. Happy days.

Jenny Kate and Shay visit and start Fell Running!

The week we were lucky to host Jenny, Kate and Shay who enthusiastically requested we took them to do the Wansfell Race in Ambleside. It was a lovely winter day and they all did very well, suppoted by the Haygarths and Polly!

Christmas 2014

This christmas Gran and Grandma came to join us and we had a relaxing time at home, playing table tennis and eating far too much. We managed to get out for a walk run on boxing day! Here are the pictures, Merry Christmas to all!

A note on Docker Garth

It is already 2.5 years since we moved into our beloved 1600s project house and this year we have started to make real progress on the outside. I spent between April to August stripping off the damp render, raking out the old mortar, and lime pointing. It was a great project, that required much time and was also very rewarding. So far it has stood upto the winter weather well and feels much drier! Thanks to all our friends who have helped us in various ways over the year. Next year we start on the inside! Pictures from the last 2 years here....
