or as near as you can get anyway. My Mum asked me on the phone earlier why my weekend was so wonderful (it's my facebook status right now), and when I told her it all sounded very non- spectacular, but sometimes life is about enjoying simple pleasures.
Making sure I got out and enjoyed the sunshine certainly helped, as did the best meal out I've had in long time with a good friend. If you're ever in the area where I love and want a recommendation then send me a message, beautifully cooked mussels with proper chips that had never been frozen! Strictly Come Dancing has started again (that Dancing with the stars if you're American), which always makes me happy. The costumes, the glamour, the drama, the laughter it's perfect saturday night tv.
Sunday I went to church (I know gasp from those who know me!) to present a 20 year service award to one of the Guiders in the district and it was great to be ale to recognize her somewhere that means a lot to her even it doesn't to me. Afterwards I escaped into the Peak District to soak up the sunshine to go climbing. Somehow it's my first day out on grit that I've managed all summer, but it was a great day. I scared myself up 2 severes, the second of which you can see here (if you climb, yes that is a lot of gear, I was having one of those moments!)
I seconded this climb which proceeded to cause me great pain and loss of skin (and to add insult to injury I fell off it!)
And finally here's who I climbed with all day, I will leave you to make your own comments!
On the dizziness front, I felt better as magically and rapidly as I felt ill... who knows what happened, but by Friday I was fighting fit again!
