Three Peaks Challenge

I lost my sight yesterday for a while. My peripheral vision was okay, but the centre of my vision was all pixillated for some strange reason. It happened once before about four years ago...just before a stonking migraine. No headaches this time.

Everything was back to normal for the debate and football, both of which were a little disappointing.

We are off to do the Yorkshire three peaks now. Tomorrow is the walk, but we are meeting up with everyone and staying at Dub Cote Farm tonight.

I have to say I'm a tad worried about my ability to walk for 12 hours up and down hills...and rain is on the way.

Why did I agree to this?

Perhaps it won't be so bad!

Perhaps it will!

Perhaps next time I'll think before I commit myself.

Perhaps I'll stop complaining and resolve to have a good time!


I think I'll take comfort from this quote from Robert Brault...

"Failure would be a bad thing if it didn't reopen so many opportunities."

That's better! 

There is opportunity in them there hills.


  1. It sounds like you need to see a specialist about this vision problem, Ken - just to put your (and mine) mind at rest.

    Good luck with this walking challenge

  2. Good luck Ken! Hope you can enjoy the scenery during your walk :)

  3. Rather you than me, I think you're very "brave" for trying.

    Your symptoms are of classic migraine. If you get them frequently you can get medication for it, if not, don't worry about it. I get one or two a year when I am particularly stressed or ready for a holiday. I prescribe a trip to France.......oh yes, you're doing that soon, so that's ok then "!!

  4. You are one lively soul Ken. Am sure you ".. stop complaining and...have a good time" you have such wonderful friends including Robert

  5. Hi Julie
    I haven't given it another thought but if it happens again I'll certainly take up your advice.

    Septembermom...the scenery was amazing and well worth the pain (I'll post a few photos very soon).

    Hi Jean
    That's the response I should have given but didn't...although, now that it's over I'm glad I did.
    That's the best prescription I've had in years and I WILL take it on board.

    Hi Raj
    I did, and it worked and yes, I do have good friends thankfully. Thanks for dropping by.
