We took a short break to head over to Dublin, where we stayed with our old neighbours Carol and Ross, and their lovely kids. It was great to catch up after so many years, and for the kids to meet each other finally. And even though it was absolutely freezing we managed to get out into the countryside for some nice walks.
We spent the Christmas and New Year period with Glo's mum, catching up with family and eating loads ;)
We spent the last day of 2017 taking a steep but rewarding hike up a hill in Grasmere, in the Lake District National Park, which made for a lovely day out from Liverpool. Happy new year!
We took a day out to drive across the Peak District National Park on a cold and snowy morning, then took a lovely walk across the snow-covered farmland of Beeley, before having lunch with Mike and Louise in a cosy pub. It was worth the slightly scary drive over ice-covered roads!
