...just chatting to a friend in NZ via IM, and after looking at the loft conversion galleries he wondered if we could send the builders over. Must check to see what the Daves think...

A friend of a friend is trying to repair her house in the lake district but getting charged London prices because she isn't "local".....grrrr

Over-charging off-comers ought to be recognised as a traditional Lakeland sport.

Hah! You should hear my dad, just to the west of the National Park boundary, complaining about the visitors these days. Keswick's impossibly crowded even in the middle of winter. He's not threatened to leave yet, but then, with only 27 years in the same village, he's probably still not firmly established! What really worries me is if I were ever to get the opportunity to move back (which I'd desperately love to do, tho' waiting for broadband to reach the right bits might be good!) I'd be hit with the same problem. Never having had a thick local accent and having lived away for close of twnety years, I'm almost certainly more offcomer than local.
