its a shame no a taversty that my passionate love of walking in the mountains and on the moors on a regular basis has led to the breakup from the love of my life (my wife who cant stand being left alone ) and the failure of my marriage.it'll be some time before I can revisit the lakes /snowdonia etc but I can tell you this I'LL BE BACK WITH A VENGENCE.so good by for now see ya all soon

Hi Martyn
I am so sorry of reading about the break up of your marriage,but as a bachelor,alas,I cannot give any contructive thoughts other than I hope and pray that things will work out fine for both of you.
Mark

Martyn,
Sir Chris Bonnington once put it something along the lines of :- " Mountaining I suppose is selfish, yes it is selfish, but its love of the mountains and the burning desire to be among them, that makes me the person I am. Without them I would be a lesser person."
My wife no longer comes on walks with me, she used to, but due to health problems and the resulting lack of fitness, the walks became increasingly less enjoyable. She does get frustrated at times when I go off, but knows that I have to do the things that I do. Its all a compromise, and I try to assist her in the things she wants to do, even if it means foregoing something that I would rather do. Its easy to get so enthused with activities like running and walking that it becomes an obsession. Once it becomes an obsession, it then becomes the main focus and parteners feel threatened by it, and start to resent it.
Its then only a matter of time before it comes to a head.
Good luck to you.
Dave.

Surely this is a case of closing the stable door after the horse as bolted.

By the way, that bedroom ceiling of yours needs a coat of paint.

I know its spoken in a jocular mode, but i think thats a bit of an uncaring comment Norman, even for me.

I agree,as well,that it is an uncaring comment.

Its apparent jocularity is but a thin creme brulee crust atop a veritable custard of poison and bitterness.

All the best to you Martyn.....a great deal of peace and serenity is offered by a love of nature.
Keep your boots on.
