Do not fear, Lulu is here, ha ha. I used to be called Lulu, my best friends mum could not say my name, so she said, 'I shall call you Lulu', and she did for many years. So, Lulu's back in town. The hostel was very good, I had a room to myself again, I love it when it's quiet. It's not a good idea to stay at Edale in the spring/summer months, full of school kids, oh my, what a racket. There was two of us on the first night, and five last night. It is up a long drive on the side of a hill, and hidden in the trees. The staff are smashing, and two feral cats live there.
I walked 30 miles over the three days, with a heck of a lot of ascent, 5683 feet according to bikehike.co.uk. I did go up Hollins Cross and Mam Tor again, couldn't resist it. Boy was it cold though, it was flippin freezing. My fruit juice was freezing in the bottle, had to break the ice at the top to drink it.
I called in at Tesco's on the way back, and spent the grand total of £5.10 on my veg for the week. Cauliflower, sprouts, potatoes, salad, swede, mushrooms, stir fry, plus a loaf of bread, chicken for the cats, and a large carton of plain yogurt, all reduced, yipeeee!
I've been sorting the photo's out, I'll put some on tomorrow. Goodnight.
