We spent Tuesday in Arundel with Sue (ex-expat). We started the day with a discussion of all our health problems - Sue is also facing the prospect of a Knew Knee. Oh dear. Great to see her though, she seems just the same, apart from the problems with walking.
We did the tour of the Reserve - a first for me. I haven't been able to walk that far for a long time. It was great - and we saw the Water Vole. Apparently Captain Butterfly heard it crunching under the bridge! It was tucking into a tasty reed.
I am busy climbing Everest again, with a Chris Bonington expedition this time. A very large expedition fortunately, as they have to drag me, my couch, and my cups of tea, all the way to the top - the hard way - via the unclimbed South West Ridge in fact.
