It’s been a trying day. I’m pretty well over my gastric bug but issues have arisen in relation to my lower spine problems. Son Duncan and I walked to our Health Centre and I had a reassuring time with the Practice Nurse and Duncan the GP. (Not to be confused with son Duncan.) Exercise helps ease my spinal issues so son Duncan, Maisie and I took a brisk afternoon riverside walk. Here is Maisie, who adores Duncan, trotting along beside him towards the end of our walk.
