As my ankle has gained strength I have ventured out to explore the little village I am living in: Lilliesleaf. First I walked with my crutches and air-boot for 10 minutes at a time, then 15 minutes and then 20 minutes. I am now walking without my crutches, but still using my air-boot, for small amounts of time; but hopefully soon my surgeon will give me the go-ahead to walk without my air-boot.
Here are two inShOt videos showing you photos I have taken as I went along
I am meeting people from the village on my walks which I enjoy, as I have said before: ‘you can’t do things and make them happen in a vacuum; you need a community.‘ I look forward to each encounter. This time we met a local software engineer, a lady that runs Lilliesleaf Cross Keys Inn and a neighbor. It is quite a pleasant experience when I introduce myself that people don’t struggle with my name (Morag) like they do in South Africa since it is a Scottish name.
Our container arrived yesterday, in port, but it still needs to go through customs; then come by road from London. I am looking forward to having some of my own things around me. Hopefully soon.
That is all for now
