We spent a very enjoyable weekend in the lower Lake District/Peak District where we rented a fabulous cottage with Janet (of France/Italy holiday fame)and her friend Gill( of no particular fame) and we had a very enjoyable time visiting an RSPB reserve and underwent a spell of "tweeting" ( bird watching ) but saw nothing awe-inspiring or exciting. We also managed a trip to a small local theatre starring a very eccentric woman who sang songs and read poems about women in war, accompanied off-stage by a pianist. It was interesting rather than entertertaining. As Janet spent her childhood in the area she drove us around in her Jaguar showing the sights and scenery other visitors would miss.
