Probably not a subject about which everyone wants to know but, having put it off for a year (my excuse is always ‘circumstances beyond my control’) I finally had my smear test today. Hence, I definitely and absolutely needed to purge all stress and what better way than to throw oneself into the nearest body of cold water, namely Sandown Bay 😊 The recuperative power, for me, is so powerful! The only downside were the wet and windy conditions so it did take some time, a sausage bap and two large mugs of tea (do all Morrison’s offer unlimited tea and coffee?) before warmth touched the places that icy fingers had previously reached. Bit rough too!
