We thought we'd make the New Year a little different this year, so we headed up to the Lakes for a few days.
We booked a little log cabin through Airbnb and used it as a base to have a little travel around the area. We stayed at Lowick Green, just 5 minutes away from Coniston Water, so we spent most of our time exploring around the lake.
The weather was a bit grey and cold, so we had to restrict the walks a little bit due to the little monster. He's usually a good little rambler, but the cold was going straight through to his bones.
Our nights were spent chilling out in the cabin. We played poker and Pictionary, watched Rom-Coms and scary movies, cooked microwave TV dinners, ate lots of snacks and chocolate and drank a bit of booze. (Well, we did - the kids just got hyper on hot chocolate and fizzy pop!)
It was a perfect way to welcome in the New Year. It was also nice to have some time off work and get in some special family time.
Happy New Year folks, here's a few snaps from our trip.
P.S. If you want a bit of money off an Airbnb booking, just clicky HERE.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
