Off again?

We are off on holiday for a week tomorrow, this time the Lake District. Never been there before, so hope it's as good as everyone says it is. I am hoping to do the following:
Long walks around lakes - flat if possible
Visit all wool shops in Cumbria
Spend a fortune in Lakeland HQ shop
Take a trip on the steamer boat
Eat every evening at a posh restaurant (ok, getting carried away, eat out at least once)

Husband wishes to
Walk up mountains with a packed lunch (made by wife)
Spend evenings relaxing in holiday cottage after eating lovely meal (prepared by wife)

We asked our son - now home from uni for the summer break (4 months long - studying music is exceedingly tiring) if he would like to come with us. Unfortunately 'the Lake District holds nothing for me' was the answer. That's it, Joe, write off an entire county and area of outstanding natural beauty without visiting it yourself. So, orders in the shop will be processed and posted on Tuesday 27 May.
