.........that I was just going for a walk.

Now it turns out I've been practising *Shinrin Yoku*.

I don't wish to rubbish the idea as it definitely keeps me sane just getting away from everything for a couple of hours every afternoon, but why does it have to have a silly name - and how does one become, like Sam Lewis, "a qualified forest bathing practitioner"?

Edit: I've found out how - and I suspect that that is where the money is:- https://www.natureandforesttherapy.org/ ... g/training

We went to the country park for a walk today as it was sunny but cold. On the way back, as the car heater kicked in, I could smell a horrid smell. You guessed it a wedge of dog sh*t was in the heal /sole crease. Fortunately it was not on the carpet or peddles but I had to take my shoes off in the garage and scoop it off before chancing a further clean up in doors I sprayed them with Dettox and wiped down three times. There is still a faint whiff on the sole so they remain in the garage. I would not mind but I am careful where I tread and we stayed in the paved pathways. That was the end of any euphoria from a lovely walk.

I hate it when that happens.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

If gloom had a voice, it would be me. :mrgreen:

I am disgusted as how prevelant dog muck is becoming, it has definitely been getting worse in recent years.

Dogshh is the bane of my life, too many horror stories to recount.

Maybe what I do is actually Shitrin Yoku, I'm definitely a qualified practitioner in that.

Been doing this since I was 8ys old.

On a similar vein I wish I had enough money to buy one of those isolation tanks that you float in complete silence although if I fell asleep and then woke up I'd probably freak out.
