Glad to oblige Gordie. You'll be spoilt for choice of course! If your trip isn't too early in the spring then you'll have long daylight hours and could consider some big walks. The Ennerdale Horseshoe is one of the best, starting and finishing at the foot of Ennerdale water and with its apex at Great Gable. It's about 22 miles and over 8000 ft of ascent - so a pretty hefty day but well worth it.
At the other end of the scale, the Coledale Horseshoe is one of my favourite shortish rounds, which starts from Braithwaite and takes in Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Eel Crag, Sail, then either Outerside and Barrow or Scar Crags and Causey Pike (the latter way being the more satisfying). You could also do a big round of Langdale, starting up Jack's Rake (or not) and taking in the Langdale Pikes, Rosset Pike, Esk Pike, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and Pike o' Blisco. The Coniston round is great too. Oh and the Mosedale Horseshoe at the head of Wasdale.
Just a few suggestions to be going on with but I'm sure you'll get plenty of ideas from the walk reports on this site.
