Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Leave of (Very Temporary) Absence

This will really be a non-blog post, a rather negative explanation and warning of possible inaction or a surprising geographical shift. Just where is the Peak District? Are we talking Tuscany or Derbyshire? Who knows?

The truth is we’re talking both, really. For the next week we will be on a long-awaited family trip to Florence, where we shall meet up with our daughter, Sara and her Australian husband and son, Derek and Tom whom we haven’t seen for two years since our family skiing holiday (and someone broke an ankle!).

I will have minimal time and possibly even more (less?) minimal wi-fi access but I intend to try to send pictures and brief reports so let’s hoodie this proves doable.
