Oh! Bearded One! & myself headed for Edale in Derbyshire for a walk.
It was a lovely autumn day.
Edale is a pretty Derbyshire village and is one of the starting points to walk up onto the Kinder plateau.
This was a special walk as its' purpose was to scatter my Dad's ashes as he had requested.
The Kinder area was one of my Dad's favorite places to walk when he used to go walking.
We were using the Grindsbrook Clough path which starts gently
but gets steep and rocky. All was going well, I was enjoying myself and the dog thought all her birthdays had come at once, when I fell.
I had stepped up onto a rock with my right foot and was bringing my left one up when I lost my balance and fell backwards, leaving my right foot behind. I felt something give in my foot and just knew I wouldn't be able to walk on it.....and I was right! I had to be removed by the local mountain rescue teams - it took 12 people to pull me up a steep hillside on a stretcher to get me back to the village.
It turns out I have broken a bone in my foot and I am now on crutches for at least 6 weeks. It is going to cause all sorts of problems, not least how we are going to look after Little Gromit whilst DD works!
We have enough of 2015,to say it has been a bad year is an understatement! I am asking for peaceful run down to Christmas as we all have had enough!
