Walks
and talks or lack of!!!!

“Sunday
and the history walk,

through
to Tuesday and the lack of talk”

Catchy
title eh? Well the 3 days involved seem to have covered an awful lot
of ground both real and in the mind. The real was the 10 miles or
there a bouts, covered in the 4 hours on Sunday doing the walk. It
was a lovely day to start with as the sun was out and felt quite warm
when out of the wind. I needed it to be warm as I had lost yet
another hat, third in 2 weeks, on the way to the walk. I get warm/hot
riding my bike then take the beanie off and put it in my pocket. This
seems fine until I have a bright idea of buying something to eat in
case I get peckish while on the walk. I obviously took the hat out of
pocket to get at change then forgot to pick it back up. Maybe I need
some kind of strap sewn into the hat and pinned to my jacket like you
may do for a child!!! I rode bike few miles to meeting point then got
lift in car many miles to the walk. Did the walk which was physically
and mentally tiring as trying to concentrate on uneven ground,
talking to new people, listening to the guide and trying to remember
some of the paths in-case I come back again was a bit much. By the
time I had been dropped at the bike then cycled back home I was
pretty much done. I think that I had some dinner but not sure, then
watched TV a bit but could not tell you what or what it was about
then collapsed to bed to rest ready for Monday morning walk!!!!

Nutcase!

Monday
walk was good and again met (imposed on) new people. I learnt about
the university of the 3rd age where retired people get
together and teach each other new skills and set out on adventures
together. Sounds great and I will follow that up once my new Tuesday
and Thursday groups settle. Too much new would overpower me.

I
had not done much if anything in TP over Saturday to Monday so on
Tuesday, remembering for once that the chat room is open on Tuesdays
I went for it. If you ever think that you are depressed or feeling
low then spend some time in the chat room and learn that only there
can you feel really down, low, depressed, alone. It has to be about
the most miserable place on the planet!!!! You can see by the list of
names that others are in the room but no-one talks. Maybe it is just
me and no-one wants to talk with me. Ok fine, well leave the room
then. If I say anything, nothing comes back. If I leave for a while
then come back and answer anyone else, it goes silent again?

I
guess that my understanding of ‘chat room’ is completely wrong but if
I want to just talk with myself I will not in future go to all the
extra trouble and effort of trying to type stuff in just to be
ignored. Rant rant rant!!!!!

Must
be having a moaning day……… sorry, I will shut up now but before
I do just want to thank the nice person in Sweden that did actually
type something in the room about going out for a walk. Seems like a
great idea and one I might take up right now!

catch
ya soon
