On Tuesday I was in Somerset with Mum; in the morning we walked into her town and ended up buying numerous books, cards and even pheasants. It was a lovely shopping expedition, but I was aware that, despite the extension to our walk, my steps wouldn’t quite be hitting 6000. I decided it didn’t matter as being with Mum was doing me a power of good, and a few more steps were not really needed plus by the time we got back there was a huge downpour. But then there was a break in the clouds.

Mum encouraged me to go out again whilst she prepared lunch, and so off I went on a brisk circular route. I did pause though to enjoy this fabulous view. If you look carefully you can see Glastonbury Tor in the far distance. I once made Mum, Dad and Robert walk up there on a very cold day. Even Dad was complaining, which was unheard of.

As I looked at this view I remembered how Robert has never let me forget how cold it was that day. However as you can see from this photo I did just about manage to get a smile out of him as he was attempting to shelter from the bitterly cold winds at the top.

  1. Ha! We once walked up the Tor when my children were about 4 and 2, and have the photos to prove it. It was (lightly) snowing, so Robert had different conditions to complain about. But he seemed to be bearing up!


  2. I don’t know what I was expecting, but the picture of Robert really made me beam. He does look cold, but also looks like he’s privately having a wonderful time teasing you about it.

  3. The wind is the worst! If it was 3 to 1 how the heck did you convince them all to walk? He does indeed look cold but patiently loving.


  4. Hah! I am not surprised they complained, that is not an easy walk up that hill. I attempted it in heat and had to give up when I was almost at the top. Poor Robert does look frozen.


  5. Shall never forget that walkΒ  up Glastonbury Tor. Was petrified the wind would blow me over and I would finish up at the bottom of the Tor
