|I walked the Wollomombi Falls track last weekend – a great stretch of the legs in the winter sunshine with layers of green moss, fungi and winter flowering plants all there to lift the spirits.
I also acquired a professional kitchen blow torch (!) so my plans for this weekend include (as ever) food – incinerated in some carefully artistic, chef-like manner. Australia Post have also advised that my new ice-cream maker is Armidale-bound, so I am planning another walk to offset the effects of consuming too much home-made dairy product.
My arm is now free from the sling which has kept it safe for some weeks. The hard task of recovery is now ahead as the fracture mineralises and I work on regaining muscle strength. At this stage, the weight of an appropriate social beverage carefully raised at repeat intervals is a critical exercise.
Whatever your choice of distraction and relaxation, enjoy the break over the weekend; stay safe, stay well and stay apart!
