    I've decided to get fit for some nice walks in 2018, so I'll be doing a longish walk through Wytham Woods here in Oxfordshire.

    What plans have other OCers got?

    Walk to the fridge for a cold beer!

    Got a walk planned for next week, weather permitting.

    None that I know of other than a quick local dander to the shops etc. If the weather turns out nice I could stick a pair of wellies on and head out along some muddy tracks I suppose.

    Last week's walk on the Mendips was cancelled due to the predicted horrible weather on Saturday.

    It's Saturday now, so it's 'Supermarket weekly shop' day! The excitement is pretty much invisible.

    Thankfully, to avoid this regular but hellish event, I get Mrs Beeny to drop me and the dog off in a car park at the top of the Bude canal path, about three miles to the town centre and beach. We walk along the canal path which goes through a nice wetlands wildlife reserve area and then meet her somewhere when it comes out into either the town or at the beach ( I might possibly be sitting down for a cuppa and toasted teacake in a cafe at this stage).

    She seems to think she's getting the rough end of the deal somehow, I remind her that I don't choose the weather and that it never seems to be 'her turn' to walk the dog.
    Ever.

    Sunday we'll do the beach clean and generally take a circular cliff top walk if there's not too much of a hooley blowing.

    I am having a quiet few days - no cycling, and just walking to the shops and back. My sister kindly donated her nasty wheezy chest infection to me when she visited last weekend. I want to try to avoid it getting a good grip on me; she has been laid up for nearly 3 weeks!

    Which reminds me - time to nip out before it gets cold and dark outside.

    My plan for tomorrow is just a walk round the local fields. Quite pretty in places, but nothing anyone would count as exciting! It will be muddy, though, so it is a 'proper' walk. ^_^

    Thanks. So far, it is only low-level spluttering and a mild headache but I don't want to push my luck.; I had 2 horrid colds earlier in the year. (This lurgy doesn't seem to be a cold because there are no nasal symptoms this time.)

    The forecast for this (Sunday) afternoon looks quite pleasant so I might do a gentle 5 mile stroll to Hebden Bridge on the Rochdale canal towpath to meet friends for coffee, then catch the train home.

    PS I have decided to cycle there and back instead because I have a few things I want to do first and I will be running short of daylight. Nice day for it, though a bit nippy - it has only just got up to 6 degrees and I think that will be the highest temperature here today. There was a frost last night (minimum -0.7 degrees).

    Last weekend was a complete write off, stuffed full of cold so did nothing. Feeling better now but I doubt I will do much this weekend either, still short of energy :sad:

    From the look of the weather report we won't be going anywhere tomorrow.

    I suppose the upside to bad weather is that it gives us an excuse to cstch up on chores.
