On a totally different subject I had coffee today with a lady (who is a little bit younger than myself) who has just recently climbed Mt Kosciuszko. Apparently it is not as hard as it sounds as you can get the chairlift to Thredbo and the walk then is on a metal walkway - there and back a total of 13 kms. There were some quite considerably older than her doing it so I'm putting this on my bucket list and plan to increase the lengths of my walks until I can do 13kms effortlessly. Then I'll be looking for some friends to accompany me - any takers???
Well, that's it from me. The sun has finally come out and I am feeling much more cheerful. That stoopid elimination diet nearly had me heading towards the big D and I refuse to go there.
