It was all going so well!


Sunday was our annual walk with good friends from Belmont over to the Strawberry Duck at Egerton.  We hadn’t even set off from  Belmont when I slipped on a patch of black ice outside the front door breaking my fall with my arm – yeah you can guess the rest.  We carried on with the walk as actually the pain wasn’t too bad for me, although I did think the arm was broken.  An excellent lunch in the Strawberry Duck and a glorious walk back to Belmont with the reward of a stunning sunset.  Didn’t seem any point in going to A&E that night as the wait would have been horrendous.  Went along to the health centre at 7.00am Monday morning, only to find the X-ray department didn’t open until 8.30!  So still a wait, but first in the queue for confirmation that the radial head in my left forearm is fractured.  Still – clean break, no caste, I’m right handed and it’s not stopped me walking – could have been a whole lot worse Smile


A quick stop off on Scout Road – Bolton and Manchester beyond.  The tall building in the distance is the Hilton Hotel




Entwistle Reservoir













Looking across to Winter Hill from above Catherine Edge – made the best use of all the daylight today
