    Yes Talkin Tarn in North Cumbria near Brampton

    10 minutes from us so we go there a lot - a gentle stroll around with ample wooden benches around the Tarn a small tea room (seasonal)

    Today I am sad. So very, very sad. I have asked that all the mirrors in the house be draped in black and I have taken to my bed like an Edwardian Lady with the vapours.


    My eldest grandchild will be 18 on Saturday and I am not feelin' it one little bit (sob).

    Lovely area. Yes, we used the tea room almost every day. We stayed in a self catering cottage at a horse racing stables just a few minutes drive from the tarn. We really enjoyed the holiday.

    I also know how you feel. My grandchildren are aged 20 and 23, and it was our daughter's 25th wedding anniversary last week. When I look in the mirror I don't see myself. I don't see my mum. I see my nana. :arghh: Frightening.

    I wish my Dad had been an unknown quantity. My mother might have had a better life. He was a pig.
