I've decided that the rather mundane word WALK will be my word for 2014.
It doesn't get me excited or inspired, or in any way enthused - it just feels like the right thing to do.
Sometimes you just know.
I have become very sedentary. So whether it is a stroll or a weary plod, a brisk stepping out or a challenging hillwalk, I plan to put one foot in front of the other every day of 2104.
I suspect I will get to like it. I've just got out of the habit!
Do you have a word for this new year?
Storms and flooded roads meant there were no buses or ferries today so postponing my planned trip to the city, I walked down to Coronation Wood and saw this -
The shore path vanished altogether at high tide and sea water has flooded the area. As far as I know no houses have been flooded here, but one wonders about all the little creatures that live in the wood....
