It's as I feared, gout has returned with a vengeance, causing me to be unable to walk properly for over three weeks due to excruciating pain in my left leg and foot. I've now had to go back to taking medication as gout is just too painful and debilitating to ignore. Oh well. Poor old Gunner has been sat with his head on my lap as if to say 'I can wait'. Ginny says he would much rather go for a walk with me but only because we spend a lot of time 'off-piste' as it were.

Over the past week I have stubbornly refused to let a limp stop me from enjoying my daily walk and have thoroughly enjoyed looking at the local history of the canal and River Severn between Sharpness and Purton.
