This morning my hubby encouraged me to walk with him on a route of his choice.  By the time we came back we’d walked 4 and 1/2 miles and it equated to 8,700 steps.

As we were returning through Bramcote Hills Park we spoke with a fireman who had attended an incident that involved 2 ambulances, a fire engine, 2 specialist rescue support vehicles and an ambulance support vehicle.  What caused such a large turn out of the emergency services I hear you ask?  It turned out to be a middle aged man who should have known better using a rope swing hung from a tree in the woods on the Park.  Unsurprisingly the rope broke and the man fell at least 20 foot and was quite badly injured according to the fireman.  Moral of the story – don’t try revisiting your childhood once you reach a certain age.

As today is just about the end of my Walking for Nablus challenge I thought I’d share a picture of the Rt Revd Tim Stevens, Bishop of Leicester and Father Ibrahim of St. Philip Church in Nablus.
