I walked up the Wrekin today with Mrs Sane, three of the kids and Charlie (the dog).
For those of you not familiar with the Wrekin, it’s a 978ft hill on the outskirts of Telford in Shropshire. It’s not the most challenging walk for most people but as you may know, both my knees are pretty much buggered.
Since the age of about 7 (co-incidentally, the age I was when I last walked up the Wrekin my mother tells me) I’ve had osteochronditis in both my knees. It’s quite rare – only 15-30 people in every 100,000 will get it – and I’ve had every type of surgical intervention there is for it. I’ve had osteochronditis in my knees since I was a teenager as a result of it all.
We all made it to the top and I’ve got the pictures to prove it!
