Just as a little addendum to yesterday's post, I had to go out yesterday and, when the bus drpped me back, I set the stopwatch and it took me 9½ minutes from the bus stop to home. I realise that won't mean much to people who haven't a clue where my bus stop is in relation to the house, but it means something to me.
From the days when I started getting out and getting the bus, I've always allowed 20 minutes for the journey, so presumably at one stage it would have taken 15 minutes or so.
When I was healthy, of course, I never timed myself, but I used to think of the walk to the end of the road (which is probably half as far again as the bus stop) as taking about 10 minutes.
So, I think that makes me about 2/3 as fast as when I was healthy!
This is it, give or take. Note Google's estimate of 7 minutes, so that's how much slower I am than their assumed speed of about3mph.
I haven't used my real address because I want that to remain confidential.
