Hope Mrs Slogger is doing ok at the moment, are you still up for the 5 day without buying food on trail C2C this year?
Thanks Calluna, yes my wife is 'stable' although because we missed her EEG results while we were away on holiday in January, we now have to wait until May. However if there was something significantly different, I doubt they would keep us waiting that long. The main problem is with my multi day trips, is that she feels vulnerable, on her own, especially with no friends or reatives nearby. I do my best and always leave her all the telephone numbers etc for emergencies and even ask the guy from across the drive if she can come to him with any household problems. However she would only ask anyone for help as an extreme last resort, she would more likely sit at home freezing if the heating broke down until I returned.
Not withstanding all that, re another 5 dayer?
Who knows, I have all sorts of stuff I want to do in my head, so will probably just decide last minute. I have done two C2C crossing within 7 months of each other and although I haven't finished with the route as yet, I sometimes think maybe I should leave it alone for a few years.
Problem with that is, whilst I feel I can still give it some now, will I still be able to then?
In the greater context of things, the dilema is trivial. Anthony our local soldier hero who lost his legs in Afganistan two years ago (remember I posted on it) was in the news this week. He has just walked for the first time, since being blown up, on little 'stubbies'. This is the first stage before eventually being fitted for new artificial legs. He described the feeling of being upright on his own for the first time, as 'Awsome'.
Now that's, what an achievement is.
