(And yes, that is Jack with a Chocolate Wheeto up his nose) I loved the purple heather everywhere.
The next morning, the kids and I drove home. We got a bit lost on the way and ended up in Nottingham, so we visited mum for an hour or so (she was in her charity shop, so we called in there to surprise her and walk home with her), then carried on home.
The restaurant (the Cow and Calf - named after the nearby rock formations) that we eventually made it to for lunch. It looked a lot closer than it really was, when we first spotted it and decided to go there! After lunch we then had to hike the whole way back again... the kids were brilliant though, especially Harry, considering he size of his legs.
When we'd driven back to John and Hannah's after, I misjudged driving into their driveway, and managed to hit and break off their gate post totally, and scratch up the side of the car!!
In the evening when John got in from work, (after showing him his gate post!) he, I and the kids drove to Bolton Abbey, and went over the steeping stones across the river. It is just so gorgeous there!! We had taken swimming stuff, and got changed on the bank, and had a nice play in the river. The water was pretty freezing!
