A lovely long walk this morning, through the town and out onto country lanes, it makes a difference walking with a friend. As we walk we are chatting and stopping every now and again to look at the views.
I am so lucky to live somewhere where the countryside is so accessible. From my front door within a mile I am in the middle of fields and hedgerows. We see rabbits scampering across the field and in the distance are sheep and cattle.
Today the weather was kind, warm and bright sunshine lifted the spirits and the mood. It is easier to walk with the sun on your back, although it did get a little warm. I left my friend near her home and carried on for a mile or so homeward bound.
This early morning world really suits me, I arrive home ready for breakfast and have more energy than ever. Today mundane jobs in the house are calling and I spend longer than I would have liked on housework. It is always good to remember that, perhaps, three months ago I couldn’t do much at all. Now cleaning and sorting is all in a days work. I couldn’t be more grateful.
Another reason to be grateful today is that I have another sponsor on my fundraising page. This brings the total to more than double the total I set for myself. It is wonderful and all thanks to Diabetes UK.
