Slog and Sloth?

I haven’t done much the last few weeks, no real walks, no wild camping, no getting out much at all. All I seem to have done is work, work, work…between that and ferrying teenagers around it’s all got a bit dull around here!

BUT… there is light on the horizon. I’m going to Arran in a week and a half. It was touch and go for a bit as to whether I could realistically do it. Life has a way of throwing all the crap at you at once and you have to scrabble to stick your head above it all, hence the work, work, work. We decided that despite not really being able to afford a week off work (I’m self-employed so if I’m not here, I’m not getting paid) I am going. This is time-out for me, a breathing space to re-energise mentally. There’s things in the last five years which I’ve not really dealt with and have taken their toll so getting back to nature, on my own, dealing with my own rubbish will be good for me.

I feel like I’ve been a bit of a sloth and I may not have got all the training walks in I intended but I know I can do this both physically and mentally so bring it on!

Plus, you’ll be inundated with hundreds of photo’s very soon…be prepared!

  1. There’s a great piece in the last issue of Lakeland Walker magazine that talks about this very dilemma. It concludes that going Walking is money in the bank of health. Enjoy Arran!

    1. Aaah thanks, I’m just hoping my old cranky phone will cope with the amount of pictures I’ll want to take! I have got a bigger camera but the weather is not looking too great at the moment and I’m a bit scared I’ll drown it!
