The diary of an overworked accountant aged 61.75

The loneliness of the long distance blogger

It’s not very nice out there. Went for my lunchtime walk, came back soaked. I try and do a reasonable walk each day to keep the musculature working, try and get the heart working after a morning hunched over a computer screen. The walk is supposed to make me feel good.
