This Bank Holiday I had a lovely little break with my family to The Lake District. We stayed in an adorable cottage in Embleton near Cockermouth and Keswick it was just a shame the weather was a little wet!

On Monday, the weather decided to play nice and we had a lovely boat trip and walk around Keswick Lake. We then popped into Keswick town for a wander and a bit of retail therapy.

Whilst window shopping amongst the majority of antique, traditional toys and out door wear shops I came across my idea of shopping, Temporary Measure.

This little quirky shop/tearoom was just adorable. They stocked an umpteen amount of Debbie Bliss yarn and knitting kits. They also sold finished products including bunnies, teddies and baby hats, booties and mittens.

I was in my element, as were the shop workers who were sat quite comfortably knitting away with a cuppa. I wish I could have stayed and joined them but with an inquisitive 21 month old with very sticky fingers I made an exit!

Next time I visit the lakes I will definitely be ordering a babysitter for a few hours (or a day) to revisit this lovely shop.
