There is so much love and kindness about. The world is not full of selfish uncaring people.

I have been falling apart recently a hard life in the mountains takes it’s toll. Yet I would not change a minute of my life. The latest was a cyst removed from my head in Aberdeen’s ARI. Dan Carrol took me as I could not drive after it. It was a bit deeper than I thought and is taking a few days to heal. I must admit I felt pretty rough after it. I now have to wait 6 – 8 weeks to get the results.

Recently I have gone from one medical problem to another. Each had taken a bit out of me. How I miss the hills but I will be back soon

So many have been so kind and caring. I have had soup, apple crumble and so many kind words from folk. Thank you all

This is a time of all we hear about those who make this world a dangerous place. The selfishness that abounds amongst the so called leaders? Many chase the publicity and the tribal workings of politics from all sides. I am ashamed to say we have food banks in every town and this in 2022.

It would be great if everyone worked together of all parties for the good of the country to get it back on its feet.

Yet I have seen so many kind people many with little money helping others. The kindness I have felt the last few days is wonderful. So my thoughts are don’t get down listening to the news just think what we can do for others.

Thank you all for your kindness and thoughts. I love your jokes about my head it keeps me laughing. It’s easy to get down but the love and kindness from others is heartwarming.

I am so lucky having so many good folk in my life . Please look after others we need each other more than ever. Money is not everything and you cannot take it with you. That old quotation “ there are no pockets on a shroud” is so true. Think what can we do for others. A kind word, a hug mean so much.

My head like a scorpion.

Thanks again for all your kindness, look after each other.

  1. Get well soon Heavy. For all the kindness you’re receiving just now I’m sure you’ve given out so much more – and not just through mountain rescue: kindness is always at the heart of all your blogposts and you’re a real inspiration to everyone who reads them.
