Well done on the 50. You have achieved this pretty quickly and you should be proud. :clap:

Well done on getting to the big 50 and as for walking in the dark, I found it strangely exhilerating last week. A bit scary too :D

Thanks Chris :D

No idea how long it will take me. Probably at least another year given that I will be avoiding winter walking. :( :(

Indeed. I'll second that. The Euro may be knackered but who cares! The EU and the Royal Family. God bless 'em! :lol: Roll on June! :D

Oh, nice report P by the way and well done on the half century. Better watch my back!

Thanks Kathleen,

Yeah it was great to have Garry along. Strangely enough when I was out I was thinking about you and your husband and how you felt so responsible for getting him back safely. I felt a bit like that myself, even though Garry is younger and more capable than me :D
