Lovely sunny late morning on Saturday so went for a ride to the allotments and on to Stoke Bardolph. Took these images of dried artichoke heads on my dad's old allotment. We gardened there from 1964 - 2009. I tied to carry on without dad when he died but it was too much for me. It is now looked after by a neighbour.

I am a CFS/Fibromyalgia sufferer and I get unduly tired and I hurt.
If I do too much I get wired and that is a horrendous state to be in, with intense pain flares and mental playbacks until it finally settles down, leaving you exhausted for days afterwards.
I am mostly safe from this in my home and garden in a steady routine but I want to get out more and to this end I've bought a Nottingham City Transport Travel Pass, a lightweight electric bike, and an e-foldi mobility scooter.**
This blog is about my travels. Short journeys, probably, for most people but big adventures for me.
