Reasons to be cheerful...

One...
Driving to work, half asleep, more than half wishing I was still in bed, and suddenly - the sun burns through the mist and bathes the mountain. Just fabulous.

Two...
Halfway between work and University there's a beautiful town, and on the outskirts of the town is this museum, created out of a French-style mansion. Not a bad place to stop for lunch...

Tree...
I've cheated:- this is last year's tree. But we went and bought this year's today, amid much hilarity and general good-humour. We've left it in its sleeve until the plumber's finished (yes, we're having the bathroom redone, a new shower put in, and a downstairs toilet installed THIS close to Christmas!) but I promise you pictures when it's done.

What I want to know is: did you stop the car to take that top picture or did you click the camera while driving at full speed?

Wow, that mountain view is gorgeous. Where in the UK do you live? I wanna go there. :-)

Don't worry, Julie! There's a convenient layby just at the point with the best view. ;-)

I like just in Cumbria, Gabriele, but I get to drive through the Lake District National Park on my way to work. :-) Blencathra is, I think, the fourth highest mountain in the English Lakes.
