Something very rare happened to me last week, an unusual feeling, I felt well enough to have an afternoon out with my boyfriend! yay! As you know leaving the bed/house isn't a very common occurrence for me, but we really wanted to go to the mountains as they are so pretty when the snow falls during winter so we jumped at the chance when it came. You might know by now we basically live half way up a mountain anyway, but we drove further north getting higher and higher at every corner. One of the best things about a trip out like this is that I can stay in the car pretty much the whole time as the drive is half the fun and the views are simply amazing! My poorly sick body isn't very strong but it managed to hold on quite well during the day, which I was both surprised and pleased about. I even managed a small five minute walk which is a lot for me and we discovered a big frozen lake and waterfall behind some trees which was an unexpected surprise! I think I talked that one up as 5 minutes before I was telling Alex how much I'd love to visit the Niagara falls. Granted it wasn't the Niagara falls but I suppose it's a start.
Once we arrived to the village at the top where there are a few cafes, shops and also a skiing and snowboarding resort we went to warm up (I was freezing despite all the layers I had on!) with a hot chocolate and admire the views from inside the warm in one of the cafes. It was such a nice escape from my bed and getting out into the real world, especially in such peaceful surroundings, once in a while refreshes my mind and helps keeps me sane (ish)
Sadly I do have to report that once I got home I really did pay the price and have been very poorly ever since but the way I look at it is that the memories of the day out will last much longer than the pain and suffering will, and being a sick person is normal for me, being an adventurer is a rare treat so it was definitely worth it!I hope you have all been doing OK and enjoying getting into the festive spirit :)
