I apologise for the radio silence over the last few weeks. Things have been very busy with my walk, the aftermath of that, lots of busyness at work, my eldest daughter’s wedding, and a few Covid moments.
My thanks to those of you who offered sponsorship for my walk to Gloucester. Things went pretty well for a couple of days but then I picked up some sort of injury and my left leg basically decided it didn’t want to carry on! By day four I was making just about two miles an hour which was not enough and it was all a little painful. This was meant to be enjoyable; I am no longer as young as I once was, and no longer a soldier and decided that a pause for healing might be the best option! I was rescued and taken back home. I’m all fine now and plan to complete the last three days once the latest UK lockdown is over in December, weather permitting. A few pictures are below, and a nice proud dad wedding photo or two 🙂
In other news, you might be interested to know that Michael O’Sullivan, Paddy expert, and author of Patrick Leigh Fermor: Noble Encounters between Budapest and Transylvania was installed as a Papal Knight in October in a socially distanced ceremony at the Coronation church in Budapest – see photo. Congratulations to Micheal.
I’m looking forward to getting back into regular posts on here, and as ever, I welcome your contributions and comments.
Keep safe and well.
