This week end I climbed a mountain (metaphorically speaking!) For the first time since the spinal surgery I was able to complete the 5 km (approx) circuit at my happy place- The Cranbourne Botanical Gardens. This is something that I use to do every week end and never think twice about it. Over the last six months it is something that I have missed greatly. It's amazing the little things that I once took for granted are things that I now treasure. After the rough couple of weeks I have had with the cicadas that have taken up permanent residency in my head I'm not ashamed to say that at the end of the walk I had a Leonardo Decaprio moment...."I'm the king of the world"!!!
A big thank you to Gerri for being my walking companion and for inspiring me to achieve my goal.
