It's a lovely day in London today, so we're off for a walk.
This involves getting in the car and driving to somewhere we want to walk. If we didn't drive it we would be exhausted by the time we got somewhere scenic. As it is, a 10 minute drive and we will be in Miss Ellen Willmott's garden at Great Warley.
When we are in France (at least for the first year or so, anyway) we won't have to drive somewhere to walk - we will close enough to the countryside for it to be a complete walking experience.
All we need now, though, is for someone to realise what a bargain my house in Australia would be.
