Today I went for a walk
Yes I did. Round the reservoir. Now, I know I've done this often and even blogged about it a couple of times, But today to make it different and more interesting for you I wore red socks.
As a result of certain gerontomedical issues, I have been off my feet for a wee while, but today was just too good to miss and so I was off out.
After a long lay-off, the first bit up the steps was a bit of a swine, but I was pleased how soon this wore off. I wasn't exactly "on fire", but I was "gently smouldering"
Bit of a bugger that the autumn tipped to be the last I'll see , one way or another, has been so disappointing as far as colour is concerned. No real frost to date has meant that dahlias are still unblackened on the first of November and the trees have just gone a dull muddy brown before defoliating.
However, onward and upward.
I had my usual seat on the dam and enjoyed an Egremont Russet

From a distance I thought this was yer man coming to save the mighty Glasgow Rangers from administration.
Two hours - I reckon about 4 miles and 400ft of up
Now here's a little competition for all the Greater Manchester based readers.
Name that station.
I am lead to believe that it's now a Morrisons.
