What Have I Been Up To? By Morton S. Gray

It feels as if I’ve just had a month out of my normal life and today I’m back at my desk and it seems extremely weird.

My husband and I were due to go on holiday to the Lake District and then we both got Covid! Having been ultra-careful due to looking after my elderly mother and having a new grandson, it was a bit of a shock to see the positive line appear. Thankfully we both had a mild dose of the virus, although we both still have wheezy chests.

My faith in human nature was restored when the holiday cottage owner allowed us to delay our stay and shortly after testing negative again we headed north. The holiday cottage was absolutely lovely and just a short stroll from the town of Ambleside. We walked, read and pottered. I crocheted as usual. It was a lovely break and we couldn’t have anticipated the eighteen degrees sunny weather. I had taken the wrong clothes with me as I anticipated wet, cold walks and had to buy T-shirts! The temperatures and rain/snow only dropped on the day before we came home.

We walked from Ambleside to Grasmere twice, clocking up ten miles each time. My step count for the fourteen days was 205,385, an average of 14,670 steps a day! I’m really pleased with that considering I have a clicky knee and don’t consider myself particularly fit.

As a writer, there are benefits to having some time out of my normal routine, as with a relaxed mind I begin to see stories everywhere – an old building, an overheard conversation, or an unusual name called and I’m off into my writing world. Home now with a notebook full of ideas, let’s see where I end up …
