Here we go with another,in some parts, bank holiday weekend. But in others, just another ordinary one. We carry on and gloss over the differences (though taking Monday off is hardly helpful you may think). The weather forecast suggests that those with nothing planned might be getting it right; rain and rain and then rain doesn't bode well for anyone trying anything more adventurous than a spot of gardening. However the sun always shines on the optimist and Chris and his happy Carfesters seem to be having a swell time. If your hall is full of camping stuff and waterproofs/wellies/sleeping bags ready to disappear for a few days, the best of British to you. Let us not be beaten down by small things like lack of comfort, rivers of rain and the absence of amenities! Their are joys to be had in a field on lumpy ground and we are determined to discover them. The osteopath has been booked for next week and the central heating can be turned on when you return; your imminent diet of pies, chips, baked potatoes, pizza and biscuits will be easily balanced by your return to proper dietary rules next week. Or something like that.
But first a film show and an ARF to perform. Noisily boisterous head and toe-tapper required-apply below.
Have a prosperous and sound Friday, see you after 2&5. And, if you have one, enjoy the extra day off.
