Peter Rabbit saves the week.

It has been rather a mixed week for me.

Tuesday saw me driving through the heavy traffic in Lancaster to visit the hospital for a scan and for the last three days I've spent hours and hours cross checking all of my tax returns ready to take them to the accountant on Monday.
However last week wasn't all that bad as we took our granddaughter Molly to see the Beatrix Potter adventure near Windermere.

Molly was so excited when we got inside. The characters were so life like although larger of course. She ran around from one window to another making the numerous Japanese tourists laugh, especially when she ran in front of their cameras.
There were large exhibits and tiny revolving ones which you had to peep through, it really was so enjoyable.
Molly came away armed with goodies from the shop some to take home with her and others to keep at our house, such as a wonderful new pinny to protect her when she bakes with us.
There was a wonderful little stepped Peter Rabbit garden outside where plants were grown for the cafe. I just had to take the photo below.
Afterwards we found a wonderful picnic place overlooking Windermere.
Windermere is normally VERY crowded at this time of the year BUT not last Wednesday. If you remember it was the England football match and I think everybody apart from the foreign tourists had stayed at home. There couldn't have been more of a perfect day for a visit.
Now it is back to work, snip, snip snip.
