- but Leithy must know by now that walking with BC can never be straightforward :wink:


Oh I just realised when i saw your post that I forgot to write about this weekends injury for your amusement.. :D
managed all the way round nae bother, then about 500 yards from the car on a perfectly even track, I went over my ankle.. Came good after a few minutes so I thought, but it gave way at zumba tonight and now its pooped.. Nae walkies for Seana this weekend I fear :wink:

I resent the implication that I am troublesome btw :-x :lol:

Och, the dead rat was a long way past causing any bother to anybody :D

Aye, my dads tactic is to wait until there have been enough demotions for him to call himself a completer :lol: Well it was 287 in his day apparently.. :roll:

Congratulations on No. 200! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Especially that Weather Gods haven't been nice to us lately. And good luck for the remaining 81 Munros!

I'm hoping desperately for a trip like yours, just couldn't make it happen due to busy time, then my chum caught a nasty cold... Maybe this weekend. My mountain madness is making me bonkers :lol: :lol:

Och, he isn't so bad - makes up for the whingeing (which he only gets laughed at for anyway :lol: ) by always having fizzy wine and doing all the jobs around camp I hate.. :D
