When Marie was last over here she had a pedometer with her and that sowed the seed of an idea. We now have a pedometer each which tells us how many steps we make and, having calibrated them appropriately for the lengths of our steps, what distance we’ve covered. I shall be interested to see what sort of distances we cover when we’re at home, when we go on a day trip and when we go away.

The average person, so I understand should cover about 10,000 steps every day; that’s about 5 miles. Some hopes! 😯
