one step forward, two steps back

I knew it would be a risky strategy to write on the blog about our good intentions to be more active.  After a positive start yesterday with an enjoyable walk in the sunshine, circumstances today are conspiring against us.  

Step back 1: We have woken up to a blanket of snow - again - and it's still coming down quite thickly, in a driving wind. However, as someone once said, there's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes.  A bit of snow on its own is no reason to stay indoors.  

Step back 2: I woke up this morning with a temperature of 39 C - a significant fever.  No wonder I had a restless night, feeling hot and bothered.  Time to take it easy and reach for the paracetamol, I think.  The good news is that Steve's temperature is normal.

The combination of snowstorm and fever looks likely to keep us inside for the time being.  However, if my temperature drops, the outside temperature rises and the snow stops later today, we may yet get out for our walk.....
