Hello!

Tomorrow I am on holiday for the bloke's birthday. For some reason he thinks the best way to celebrate this occasion is to hike up a mountain in the middle of winter. So we're going to the Peak District to stay in a hostel with a group of friends. I am doing traditional [personal profile] nanila preparation. To whit: It is approaching midnight, I have not packed, I am currently on my nth glass of wine and I'm dancing around the kitchen to thumping drum n bass (see: Kemistry & Storm). The bloke has a giant Ordinance Survey map out on the table. The kittens are attacking stray hands/feet/wine glasses.

*holds up glass* CHEERS Y'ALL.

ETA: Smoking cigars now. O DEAR

Ooh, okay. I'm also hearing murmurings about something called a Bakewell tart?

HEARING MURMURINGS??? But... You can get those anywhere ;) Granted, they are delicious (wee tarts with jam, almond songy stuff on top of that, fondant on top of that and a cherry to top it all off), but they're not exactly a Peak District Exclusive.

Alright, so Kendal Mint Cake (slabs of minty sugar) is more of a Lake District thing, but they're all 'way up north' from where I am :P

I don't understand why I've never had one, then. I feel as if people have been keeping things from me. Harrumph.

On Friday we went up & down Dovedale valley. On Saturday we climbed Kinder Scout, which looked fantastic as it was all snow-covered and then on Sunday we went to Ladybower Reservoir and hiked around the Derwent Edge. I'm still tired!
