Day 358-363 At Home

Thursday 28 July to Tuesday 2 August 2016

Rest days

At home 

It was nice to be home. The garden had grown a bit! I enjoyed a few days doing very little except washing and mending my kit. Everything (including me) was getting a bit tired. For example: the rubber was wearing off my walking poles, my t-shirt had developed an irreparable hole and I had to order a new one, my shorts needed sewing up yet again, and my sandals had to be washed and soaked 3 times to rid them of their foul smell. 

I also took the opportunity to visit my mum as I hadn’t seen her for over 6 months and I don’t want to be written out of her will. Plus, she’s good at sewing. Love you mum.

    Lucy, oh my goodness, something made me think of you…. And I find you’re doing this!!! Fantastic. And you were in Mudeford recently – I visited the exact same place just a couple of days later with my two boys. Living in Wiltshire… Hope you have a wonderful time and wishing you all the best. X

      Hi Helen, how lovely to hear from you. I decided to do something a bit different after 18 years in the RAF, and this has certainly been a great trip so far.

        So good to hear that it’s a great trip for you. Looks wonderful. Certainly a bit different. Something special I hope. Let me know if you want to meet up one day.

    Look after the kit and it will look after you, even the sandals that stink and the tee shirt with holes. I hope your Ten Day Pants are still going strong after 3000miles??????? Well Done to Juicy’s Mum too!!!!!!
