I Went Out!

I got out of the house!  I still can't believe I managed it.  Bear wandered off to school, his hand heavily wrapped in plasters, and then I walked to Aldi.  I didn't think I had it in me.  It's possibly around a mile, and once upon a time I wouldn't have blinked, but it's a long way for me these days.  It's not a bad walk.  It cuts through some social housing, some private housing, a public footpath that is a nice walk...




... which is only a little snicket or ginnel in a very urban area, but it had a sort of Tolkien feel about it.  Then you go through past some 1930s semi-detached houses with old fashioned gardens, a small collection of industrial units and you get to the new Aldi store.  I picked up a few bits and I got a taxi back.  I had always planned to get a taxi home, because I didn't think I would manage the walk and I was worried that I would struggle to carry the shopping.  Next time, and I'm determined that there will be a next time, I shall take my shopping trolley and trundle my stuff back. 

I'm quite impressed with the pictures.  I'm not good at this sort of thing, but these have come out really well.  What surprises me is the difference in the light.  The pics were taken within seconds of each other, just a few steps apart (it's not a very big ginnel).  I must have just been at different angles for the light.  It was a steep climb for me, so I got a little exercise and picked up some bargains!

I really hope I can do this some more.  I get a bargain (though an opportunity to impulse buy) and some fresh air and exercise.  Then all I need to do is get the house sorted out and get some writing finished.  Speaking of which, the latest instalment from the White Hart is here, but be warned - it's a long one!
