My poor daughter – I picked her up last night after her Duke of Edinburgh weekend and I’ve never seen anyone so dead on their feet before. She could barely walk. Was so tired she was almost in tears. Surprisingly she has blisters on her shoulders instead of her feet – from carrying her 4 ton rucksack for 35 miles. Of course that was apparently my fault for buying a rucksack without much padding and of course it wasn’t my fault that I had invested in boots that properly fitted her so that she had minimal blisters on her feet. She was cross that she had been put in a group of mostly boys that wanted to run everywhere in order to win. Cross that she’d had no sleep. Cross that she had been freezing. Cross. About. Everything.
