Sorry for no blogs !

How I miss the hills !

First my apologises for no blogs as I had a really upset gastric problem for nearly a week. I have no clue how I got it but am feeling a lot better now. I tried to “flush” it out but that did not work. My taste went as well and I could not get out due to the need for the loo. Without going into to much detail I never ate for 4 days living on water, bovril, lucozade and nothing else. Eventually The doctor prescribed some tablets and a week on I feel a bit better. This bug was worse than anything I have had in Pakistan India or Nepal and if there was a bug to catch I would catch it. It is amazing how weak you become so quickly. I did Covid checks and they were negative.

It was an awful week but I have on the bright side I lost a bit of weight. My pals have been all over the place this week on the hills and Glens while I have been on the loo. I am glad they are getting out and enjoying themselves. My time will come.

I knew I was not feeling great after my hill day last Friday. There was no energy and I was always feeling cold.

A sample has gone off to be checked and I kept away from folk. Most of the time anyway I was pretty weak to go outside.

Being unwell It gives you time to think and clear your head. So out of every experience comes some learning.

I will take it easy this weekend and recover properly. I am eating again and enjoying slow walks again in the sun. It’s amazing to see the flowers out and the folk enjoying the weather and the sea. Every day is a new day.

My local wander.

I will be back!
