Home again...

The problem with holidaying at home is you are beholden to the Great British weather system and, boy has August been wet.

We started off with a week in Fort Augustus at the south end of Loch Ness - damp but fun and my son now has a remarkable interest in ornithology for being 18months old. Okay, so he can only identify a robin so far, but, hey, I'm proud. I also managed to sneak out and get a day's cycle along Wade's Military Road.

For the last week we've been living practically underwater in the Lake District. I did get a 12 mile hike around the Fairfield horseshoe where I got battered by the elements. It did brighten up on the way down and by the time I got to the pub, I could have been standing on the top in a T-shirt, rather than huddled in a shelter in hail as I was...

Suddenly flying off to the Costa del Sol has its temptations!
