This Cumbria Life

Hello All

As you know little things please me. Something that is definitely not little however is monthly magazine Cumbria Life,


You may remember that I have talked about this super periodical before. We are very lucky to have such a high quality magazine celebrating our beautiful county. No surprise that I am a regular reader.

In July I took a trip to Leeds to visit No 1 Daughter and No 1 Son. I carried with me the latest Cumbria Life to keep me entertained and to share with my offspring. One of the articles took us on a merry stroll down memory lane as we recalled the No1s younger days at Kendal Calling music festival. So much mud!

Anyhoo I thought that I would regale the editorial team with my latest outing accompanied by their glossy magazine. And hey! what’s this on their letters page?


My name!!!


OK its not a Pullitzer. I did say little things please me.

Until next we meet, Moke x

P.S. Oops… the spots on that last picture are Cumbrian raindrops that decided to fall just as I was taking the photo.

    The regional magazines are brilliant, aren’t they? We have Somerset Life down here and it’s just as interesting. Great to see your letter in print too!

      I feel a holiday idea here. Sampling all the different county magazines. Seeing what locals and visitors alike are reading. I have friends in the SW and it sounds like I should start with Somerset Life. M xx

    I love Cumbria Life too and usually manage to read it for free in one of my ( many) favourite coffee shops and cafés; infact I was indulging myself with the very same only yesterday afternoon!

    Well done you for getting into print, I see a blockbuster on the horizon.
