Nostalgia: The Lake District

Nostalgia: The Lake District

Today I miss space and trees, freedom and childhood. I just don’t feel like smiling or being peppy right now. It happens sometimes. I thought back to a couple of weeks ago (the beginning of the month) when I went to visit my best friend. She planned some birthday treats for me and one was a picturesque walk in the Lake District.

Initially she told me that I would be fine in jeans, a tshirt and trainers but when I saw what her and her friend (who kindly planned our route) were wearing, plus we actually started walking, it became alarmingly evident that I was not suitably dressed for the five hour walk ahead (in her defence and mine, we had no clue we would be walking for that long).

Mentally, getting up that mountain was a battle and at one point, I really didn’t think I would make it. However, when we reached the top, the breathtaking views made it worthwhile. The walk down was equally stressful as I thought I might slip and die but I made it (despite tripping a few times). I’m grateful I know some daredevil people to push me to try such interesting activities and see the world from greater heights.

Nostalgia

Furniture ageing

just like our love; yearning

to extend old times.
