I've had a lovely weekend. I went up to the Lake District with lots of friends from church for a weekend of walking. I was a bit worried that I'd be too tired to enjoy it, but actually I had fun. I didn't push myself too hard and went slowly, but still managed to get up some steep hills and feel the wind in my hair. Sunday was the best day. We walked along Hay Stacks, above Buttermere. It was an incredibly windy day, the wind whipping up water from the tarns at the top and occasionally almost blowing us off the path. It felt so good to be blown about in the wind and to see all the beautiful hills and lakes. I felt more alive than I have in ages.

Now I'm back in Cambridge, feeling tired, but tired because I've done lots, rather than because I've done nothing much. I'm still going to take things slowly and not rush back into work and studying, but it does feel like I've turned a corner and things are getting better.

I am trying to slow down and say no to a lot of things. My sister Sonia who is on a holiday is helping.

Sorry to hear you've not been well - thought I hadn't seen you around much! Take it easy and get well soon.

It sounds like you had a wonderful time! even despite feeling ill! Did you take pictures? We don't have really nice places like that in Texas that I know of.

I'm glad you're feeling better :)
