thermalling next to lake...

I live and fly within 1/4mile of a large lake, (Windermere, Cumbria, UK). I was wondering because I fly on the east side of the lake and the prevailing is nearly always a westerly could this affect the thermal forming capabilities.. I regularly witness a "blue-hole" above me while all around there is Cumulus, am I in a sink hole..? I don't have any trouble finding thermals to ride but I was wondering if I would have more luck if I flew somewhere else away from the effect of the lake if such a thing exists..? Just wondering, part of the learning curve and all that..

Chris..
