What a grey day!!! Can't you just tell that it's a Bank Holiday!! Making the most of it, and never ones to let the weather dampen our spirits, we "Kagd up" (put our kagouls on) and went for a walk around the very pretty village of Tissington in Derbyshire. We didn't hit too much traffic en route - just in Bakewell where everybody seemed to be. We did one of the walks from the website that I mentioned a few posts back. We had never been to Tissington, and it was a complete suprise to us. Hubby managed to skillfully guide me away from the Craft Fair in the village hall and towards the old railway track (The Tissington Trail) where we started our walk. Afterwards we drove to Ilam which I discovered was not too far from Tissington and was where Rosie (Corners of my mind on the sidebar) walked earlier in the week and I was keen to take a look at it. Ilam is gorgeous and we are very keen to go back again and do a walk around there. We called back in Ashbourne for tea, and now are home again, bathed, Jammies on and ready to watch "Ashes to Ashes" which we all love.
Hope you all had a good bank holiday.
On a culinary note, I had a go at the Shallow Fried Asparagus in lager batter that "Cooking with the Jones's " had blogged earlier in the week. It was sooooo tasty and we will be having more of this over the next few weeks. The lemon mayonnaise went perfectly with it. The kids loved it too. I love you bloggers for the inspiration I get from you all. You stop me being a stick in the mud. Many many thanks. xx
