Point reached on journey: We have reached the grassy lawn on the Silverlode just west of the Anduin. We practiced paddling and then met the swan-ship of Celeborn and Galadriel. After lunch and gift-giving, we left in 3 small boats.

Where I really went... Just a quick cycle ride down the old railway track and back. First outing for the bike this year. (Yes, I am a fair weather cyclist.)

Tomorrow I'm going to see if I can get the kickbike in or on the car and drive to Arthog and then see if I can ride to Barmouth and back.

Today was a slightly weird day. I felt really tired yesterday and despite an afternoon nap (which I normally never indulge in), I still felt tired and had a really early night. Then I overslept by an hour this morning. I just couldn't wake up properly. I felt dopey and groggy, like you do when you have to get up a 5 am to catch a flight or something and your brain isn't really awake, though your body is walking about.

I felt sleepy this morning, but tried to push through it and do some marking and then, gradually, it wore off. I vacuumed the bedroom and dusted my desk and did a load of washing, which I hung out in the garden and eventually felt perky enough to take some exercise. (See above.)

I don't know whether I finally succumbed to exhaustion after doing all those assignments and the marking and having a few late nights and then driving to Pwllheli and back in the evening, or whether it was some kind of mild virus, but it seems strange that I should start the day tired and then get less tired as the day wore on.d

It will probably remain one of life's little mysteries.
