On the way back we stopped off in Grasmere to go to the famous Grasmere Gingerbread Shop. It's a tiny little shop and the lady who served me was all dressed up in a victorian outfit complete with mop cap. It was great except for the fact we had to queue outside in the increasingly heavy snow. I still can't believe I did that. the gingerbread is very good though and you should definitely try some if you are ever passing.
Had a quick visit to the Herdy shop too. Their sign blew off in the night during the storm! We headed back to the yurt. Got the coal going in the stove and very cosy we were too. Coal burns much longer than wood and as it was clear that it was going to be a very, very chilly night we didn't want the fire to go out if possible. It didn't and we were toasty all night. The wind really got up and other than around the door, we had relatively few draughts. The yurt was in a nice sheltered spot so there was very little movement despite some very gusty wind during the night.
