Helen blog of the Fell Race today at Staveley in Cartmel

Here I am taken in action again today. My friend Annie also joined me for the race. Poor Annie fell in a bush on the descent. Today the race was steep up and down. It was rainy and cold. It was fun.

Angus and I in a cross country race

Untitled, originally uploaded by Phil Haygarth.
Angus and I went to do a cross country race in Giggleswick today. Both me and Angus were very competitive and raced right to the line. I was beating him at the last minute and then he sneaked past me over the line - I was very annoyed.

Yesterday Dad took us up Red Screes and we saw some people training rescue dogs and we saw one dog find someone - very exciting. After that we went to Staveley and we had a hot chocolate and a cake. Here are some pics of the trip.

Season's Greetings from the Haygarths

, originally uploaded by Phil Haygarth.

This year we have not sent Christmas cards instead we have given a donation to some charities (Philippines, St. John's Hospice, Homeless in Lancaster).  The picture was taken a few days ago on New Years Eve on a Caving trip to White Scar Caves.

We are all fine, here are some updates from 2013:

- Anne turned 50 and twelve of the family went to Ile de Re to celebrate.  She is a busy Mum and Hospice Nurse.

- Phil's year was dominated by a nasty cycling accident, which resulted in surgery for a mangled collar bone, things are now much better but he still requires further surgery.

- Helen is 8 growing tall, enjoying the flute and piano. She still loves her ballet and is now a seconder in brownies, she also is a member of the running club and a promising young fell runner

- Angus turned 11 and achieved grade 1 in his trumpet and is in his last year at primary school.  He enjoys his cycling, rugby and running and is keen to be a farmer.

Matt is now 13 and went to Canada in July, to carry bags and support the injured Dad on a work trip (every cloud......), he continues to do well at school (he moved to QES from LRGS in January), he loves his rugby and his team won the Cumbria cup.

We wish you health and happiness for 2014, if you want to come and visit we would love to see you at our home in Docker on the Cumbria Lancashire border.  Please keep upto date with the family blog at (now in its 9th year!) or follow Anne on Facebook and Phil on Twitter @philhaygarth

New Year’s Day 2014

On New Year’s Day we went to my Dad’s Aunt Cindi and Uncle Keith’s for dinner. We walked the dogs on the beach. There was a lot of lovely food and we had a very good time. Thank you! By Angus
