Paddy's Hill without sticks
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
Val was at work and I spent the morning dealing with some paperwork then starting to write an informal paper on Ice Age Dublin for the Geological Society.
By the time I’d got through all this, it was lunchtime and I was getting hungry, so I stopped work, had something to eat, then went off on a slightly more extended walk – up Paddy’s Hill – without crutches or poles. It went well – though I did manage to slip on my backside on a patch of mud on the way down – no harm done, except to my pride.
Spanish in the evening, and the cold which has been bothering me since Friday night seems to have more or less cleared up now (touch wood). Hasta luego!
