JAMIE'S NOTES

Hi, I'm Jamie πŸ‘‹πŸ»

I'm a πŸ‘« husband, πŸ§’πŸ» dad & πŸ• dog-owner, living in Yorkshire, the greatest county in England. I enjoy ⛰️ long walks, πŸ“š books, πŸ›οΈ history, πŸ’» tech, β˜• cold tea (milk first, please), wrangling spreadsheets, and occasionally some 🧰 DIY.

This site is my home on the internet. It's a collection of 57 blog posts, 22 links, some photos and other bits and bobs.

Week 8: Hathersage

  • We cut our camping trip to two nights. Good lord, those camp beds were uncomfortable. Our camp site was lovely though, and the Peak District deserves more exploration. We camped on a small site on the outskirts of Hathersage. The nearest shop was over a mile away, which in an ideal world is the absolute minimum distance I would prefer civilisation to be.
    I enjoyed driving up and down Winnats Pass, though my feeble car struggled to match my enthusiasm:

    On the way home we took detour to Hardwick Hall. We’ve been before but it deserved a second look. The house was built by Elizabeth Cavendish, a formidable woman who is well worth reading about.
  • Back to work tomorrow, so I’ve spent my last moments of freedom imagining all of the things that could have gone wrong while I’ve been away.

Finished reading:

  • Sphere, by Michael Crichton. Probably not the book for you if you are claustrophobic, or have any concerns about the probable existence of a malevolent alien intelligence.
