Summer in the Lakes - it's all hills, water, drystone walls and super cute sheep! | Emma Lamb

Yup, once you get into the heart of The Lake District that's about all you're going to see - and it couldn't be more perfect! Of course you have to be able to brave driving the piddly little roads you need to travel on to get there - barely wider than regular single lanes but with two way traffic, no white lines to mark your territory and only occasional 'passing places'! It's a wee bit of a shock to the system for city drivers and non-driving city passengers I can tell you!

Happy Monday folks, how was your weekend? Hopefully everyone int he UK didn't suffer too much during Bertha's wee visit? She's still hanging about the east coast of Scotland right now so the summer feels like it's taking a little break right now. But no matter because this morning I have the most wonderful job of moderating over 700 of your fabulous summer submissions to our making everyday beautiful Flickr group. Wowee, what a treat indeed!

A few summer Instagram's - follow me as emmlamb.uk | Emma Lamb

Omg, I don't want to though! It's too nice out there. I just want to play in the sunshine ALL the time! I hadn't planned to be away for so long but since gorgeous summer day after gorgeous summer day just kept arriving in these parts - and they can be so rare some years! - there was nothing else for it, I just had to unplug and go outside. And I unplugged completely! Even my new found love for Instagram was ditched in favour of walking and sun lounging!
