There was only the occasional glimpse of sun over Loweswater this morning and the wind on the fell tops was icy – a portent of things to come I think. My boots are falling apart again; regular readers will remember it was only 5 months ago that this happened previously and that pair only lasted 7 months. It’s back to the manufacturers as the shop warranty is just out, being 12 months from the initial purchase date. It will be interesting to see what happens next…
