We got here later than intended though. We set off approx 10.30am, but got caught up on the motorway M6 at junction 33 as a car had overturned and a twin axle caravan had jackknifed :-( The motorway had two lanes closed and it set us back over an hour. We had intended to go around the shops and grab some lunch in Kendal but we simply didn't have time in the end. We came off the motorway early and found the nearest McDonalds which was in Lancaster via sat nav where we sat down to eat lunch at................... 3pm! Kids were golden and didn't moan once, it helped that we played loud music (Queen, Bon Jovi, Savage Garden) and sang out loud - we got very strange looks from other cars!
We came straight to Ambleside and went to the Tesco Express to get some things for tonight and tomorrow and then checked in 4.30pm. We half unpacked and realised we had forgotton butter for toast and sandwich's tomorrow so had to go back to Tesco. We stopped off at the Lake on the way back to feed the ducks though there were no ducks there only geese and swans.
Mark took Anais and Roman to the swimming pool and supervised from the side while I stayed in the apartment to unpack some things and cook tea.
Tonight we ate tea (pizza for the kids, curry for us) and watched "White House Down" which we brought on DVD to bring away with us as Anais has wanted to see this since it was released at the cinema last year.
