.............not all those that wander are lost..............

So now what?........

Only having the use of one arm, not being able to sleep lying down, having to take painkillers which make me feel 'woozy', these are all very frustrating and/or painful consequences of my little accident.....

Even worse though ...what am I going to do with myself? All my usual outdoor and indoor activities are suspended - I can't even type properly with one hand!

There are some books I could read.....films to watch.....but they won't keep me fit.

Am I being too negative?

So what will appear on these pages over the next few weeks? I'll have to think of something.......I don't really just want to keep a diary of having a broken arm.....

We'll have to wait and see......

You have my sympathy - I am now seven weeks on from a knee replacement and have done no significant walking since my Welsh boundary walk last summer. At least I have been able to use the computer which has just about kept me sane. I suspect you will become adept on the keyboard and one hand with a bit of practice.

With best wishes for a good recovery.

Route planning is good. Do it online - get one of those fancy e-OS map access thingies, and Robert's your father's brother.

We shall expect to see the outline of your route for next year....let's see now - in 7 to 10 days?

Now get on with it!

You'll just have to do a lot of gentle walking when you get back to Scotland.

Good suggestions! - thanks for those, everyone - I am beginning to be able to use a spoon more successfully with my left hand (otherwise I'd be a bit hungry by now!) - my typing is improving too! Tomorrow I'm going to attempt a shower!!!!!
