Neil has some great ideas. On Thursday I had a message saying he was taking the van down to the Monnow to camp for the weekend. He’s taking Ollie & Shane [splendid fellows both], and that I was welcome to join them if I wish. I had no hesitation in accepting.
It’s 10:30, Friday morning. My van is packed. I’m sitting in my conservatory trying to hear the TV [Paul Young – Hooked on Fishing, Golden Piranha in Argentina] over the noise of the rain bouncing off the roof. The gutters are over-flowing, the bottom of the garden is starting to flood and there has just been an almighty clap of thunder.
If the weather on the Brecon Beacons is anything like it is here we’ll be more likely to catch Piranha than trout this weekend.
