"A word on the spot is worth a cartload of recollections"

This is what my knee looked like 2 weeks ago after I pulled a lump of chalk onto it at the cliffs at Saltdean. It has been slow to mend. I was on crutches for the first week and swelling, discomfort and swelling continued into the middle of last week.
None of that mattered much EXCEPT (as I today confessed to Nick) I had been thinking my injury would scupper the trip.
But my knee stood up well to the climb today and hasn't suffered any ill effects. Tremendous relief!
