Coniston is a village and civil parish in the Furness region of Cumbria. Historically part of Lancashire, it is located in the southern part of the Lake District National Park, between Coniston Water, the third longest lake in the Lake District and Coniston Old Man, the mountain peak just left of centre here. The mountain is popular with tourists and fell-walkers with a number of well-marked paths to the summit, no doubt Alan and Frank have trod those slopes at least once over the years.
For a long time now we've been talking (Maureen's been talking) about replacing our old shed of well over 20 years age in the back garden with a proper Summer House so we (she) can sit out and enjoy the garden. At long last we (Maureen) have (has) decided to get one so the other day we (she) went out and bought one and it was delivered, the old one taken away, and the new one erected in its place. I must admit it does look rather nice, now all we need is a decent spell of weather to enjoy it.
