Having had breakfast, I had a couple of things to do on the computer. Of course I got on with what I had to do, but had a YouTube video or two on the go in the background. When I’d finished doing what I’d needed, I was stuck there watching videos for probably another 30 minutes or so, it was a complete waste of time, entertaining, but that’s about it. Mind you, I couldn’t really be bothered to move, I felt shattered. No particular reason to do so. We’d been North yesterday, only just inside the M25, and I didn’t even drive (for most of the journey) and we had a lovely time. On getting home, I had a really good sleep until around 4AM, after which it was on-off snoozing until we got up. I just felt drained (all tested, all negative).
I didn’t want to spend all day sat at the computer, and the Station Manager wanted to get the Christmas decorations up so we got all of that out, and she has been pottering about doing that all day (it’s one of the few friction points we have – I offer the bare minimum assistance, doing everything asked – that sounds really bad doesn’t it, but we are used to it).
Anyhow, the station manager was happy pottering around and I decided to go for a walk. Nothing special, just a couple of miles, and a large chunk on a normal route that I follow, with just a little bit of variation. I thought I would take a picture of some of the historic areas of town, hence the railway station, a Victorian building opening in 1842. It is only a matter of yards from the outside of the ramparts forming one of the key defences of Gosport. I learned that it was built as a low laying building in order to not obstruct the field of fire for soldiers on the top of the ramparts.
There was a drizzly rain for much of the walk, but that was OK, I had on my raincoat. It was very pleasant walk.
