First symptoms of Hillclimbus nuttus perhaps??? I've been suffering from this for quite a while. Mood swings are one of side effects of staying indoors. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice to be reminded of what was home turf for me when we lived in Dundee. This was a walk I did with the kids when they were young which they didn't complain about because it didn't go on for ever! :D

Way too cold for shorts yet Polly, i'm still wearing my thermals on the hills :D

Dogplodder, any hill that kids go up without "whinging" has to be a good hill :lol:
