Went to Cockermouth to look at a new site, and had a chance to look round Wordsworth's house. Bloody daffodils everywhere...what's all that about then? Cockermouth's got a Sainsbury's which makes it posh in my eyes. Bought some jacket potatoes, but mainly so I could get a carrier bag to give to my next-door neighbour....he hangs them outside his windows to scare away house-martins and swallows from nesting in his eaves. Why he prefers to have carrier bags flapping around outside his house than nice little birds is beyond me, but at least a Sainsbury's bag will give a better tone than his current Asda bags; this is a conservation area after all.

Did Wordsworth have two houses?

I went to his house but it wasn't there I'm sure.

Sainsburys is posh but I think Waitrose is somehow posher, be thankful you don't have a Netto :rolleyes:

I think Wordsworth also had a small house on one of Persimmon's first developments near Ribchester...probably just so he could get away from all the bloody daffodils.

Thanks for reminding me about Waitrose, the nearest of which is over 150 miles away.

It was Grassmere - thought I had never been to Cockermouth (I would have remembered)

Not sure where the nearest Waitrose is but there is one near my mother-in-laws in Crowborough.

They've just opened a Netto's here, there's never any cars on the car park though. It won't last long as everyone like's the Tesco's they've opened here that's on stilts.
