Sunday 8th June 2014 – Did I really walk THAT far today?

The answer is YES I did!! “How far?” I hear you ask, well I had to walk for at least 3 hours. You can walk a long way in that time. Now I’d not been very happy with the app that I had been using as it hadn’t been very reliable, but I think I’ve figured out why. The places that I’d been going didn’t have a very good GPS signal, so today I decided to keep to the main roads and it was much better. I’d planned to meet Mark and the kids at a National Trust place, and thought that it would take me about 3 hours to walk there, but I had nearly reached it, and still had an hour and a half’s walking to do, so I had to think fast and find somewhere else to go. So I walked the streets, and went past a house where I used to live, but was only five and a half when I left. So that was a lovely trip down memory lane, then I walked past the school nearby where I went for about 1 term, but hated, so was glad we moved. But I still had time to spare, so I walked even further, and finally worked my way back to the main road and on towards our planned meeting point. When I finally got to Mark and the kids I walked for 3 hours and 23 minutes and walked 13.1miles!! Yes you have read it correctly. Even I was surprised, but very happy as this means that I’ve walked half a marathon, just the same distance again and I’d have done it all. I was rather hot when I’d finished, and very thirsty. I’m glad to report that I have no blisters and now as I’m writing this no part of me is sore. Tomorrow morning I may feel different. The sun shone all day and the temperature in the car said 25 degrees. Still after a sit down with a cup of tea when we got home and a rest in front of the TV I then went into the greenhouse and potted on some more Tomatoes in 6 inch pots. The sun is still shining but the temperature has cooled a bit. Mark and Emily are at the cinema watching Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt beat the crap out of some robots, and George and I are going to watch Life of Brian. What a brilliant day, if exhausting.

    Hi Claire great stuff ! Ridding the allotment of weeds arrrrrrrh !! I always manage to pull up the onions but in the other hand lots of broad beans chard and first cauliflower of the year cut back nettles and comfrey great for the compost heap

    • If there was any way to get rid of weeds for good I, along with many other people would be very happy. It’s just a persistent battle and one that we’ll never win. You think you’re on top of them one minute and then the next they’re everywhere.
