Evidence that my enthusiastic attitude towards activity is as yet undiminished
1. Why do people very keen on walking make it harder for themselves by going to a mountainous area to do so? Why not walk in East Anglia where it's on the flat? I don't get it.
|'Look, I agree with Fran. I've got more blisters than a 36 pack of aspirin.|
Next year it's East Anglia or you're on your own, sunshine.'
2. Is six pieces of Grasmere gingerbread in one day excessive consumption?
|Fran agreed that making TWO pieces of gingerbread look like ONE was a great help with the guilt.|
3. If you take a bus up to the top of a steep hill, is it duplicitous to pretend to wipe sweat off your brow when people walk past?
|If only those walking past knew that she'd only just got off the 43 from Grasmere and that the rucksack was|
crammed with gingerbread.
|Fran's husband had said, 'Are you coming out for a walk, dear?' |
Phew! That line about the anorak and wellies not matching her chosen outfit was always a winner!
