Penrith

My very ambitious choice of books for the week. I didn't even finish one-too busy enjoying myself.

After my recent back operation I was lucky enough to have rehabilitation at the Fire Brigade Recovery centre in Penrith, which was amazing. I was busy walking and exercising most of the time, also a bit of socialising with the great people I met there. So I didn’t take as many gnarly tree barkFence post and barbed wirePenrithmay2013-46Penrithmay2013-62Pink blossompictures as I would do normally but here is a selection from my week away.
It was a very busy schedule of exercising, swimming, rest, relaxation and walking. The walks were nice and enjoyable. Apart from the day we had a rest period and decided to go to Ullswater, as soon as we got there what was an okay day turned into a rainy, windy, freezing cold day as soon as we got there.
I had a nice walk by myself along the river, but almost got lost with my bad sense of direction. All the plants were late to bloom in Penrith, as they have been everywhere in the country this year. So it was nice to see the beautiful blossom when I returned to Warrington.

So it is back to work for me, I have one weeks worth of work to catch up on. This blog isn’t an act of procrastination, that’s what I am trying to convince myself of anyway.
