unusually today's fun began with a lie-in, breakfast in bed and a read of the papers. i could see the cloudless blue sky from every window in the house as i went room to room, building a small pile of down, gor-tex and sugary treats.
i'm all packed now and ready to leave for a bank holiday bivvy. however, the skies are now decidedly gray and the sun has has lost it's sparkle. maybe the early bird does catch the worm....but what if the bird is wearing full waterproofs?
