Ichabod is itchy

up here in the peak district– but a ray of light in that i have borrowed our friend’s internet connection for a short itch… we have successfully moved– beautiful house + beautiful garden, but internet is taking somewhat longer than anticipated to get up, so will probably be silent for another week or so.

Meanwhile, we have abandoned our unpacking for a couple of days up here in the peak district, with some friends of ours. Despite the grim weather forecast and even the weather presenter saying ‘abandon all outdoor plans this weekend’, we still put on our walking boots yesterday morning and trudged up and down dales and in and out of forests. Only had two showers all day (although sky was grey throughout). There’s something very refreshing about going walking when it’s cold and grey and threatening rain. Invigorating, Lewis says– certainly put a flush in our cheeks!

  2. I arrived at a youth hostel in the Peak District a day early. It was something like 1956 at the time. I must have been keen or absent minded. It was the one near Home Moss. Or is it Holme Moss? I saw Speedwell Caverns, Blue John Mines and red suirrels. My mother had told me about these things. We played 78rpm Pop records in the Common Room those two nights. I forget what songs but they were better than a sing-song with all that Oh My Darlin Clementine stuff. cyquick.wordpress.com
