Another of the lost weekends from last month. A windswept drizzly day, grey skies, heading to Bermondsey to meet the Borough Belles WI, discuss plans for the Big Feastival. Chatting over hot chocolates in the back of a bookshop, finding out that one of them is a blog reader (I'm very chuffed). Heading to Stratford-Upon-Avon to visit my grandma (Hi Nana!)(she now reads this blog via a very kind friend and neighbour of hers who prints it out for her), catching up over boxes of Thornton's chocolate and cups of tea. On Sunday, walking with Dad by the river, clouds threatening rain. The newly refurbished theatre, impressive, a bookshop on a barge, a barge with my name. Swans, dragon boat racing. A churchyard with ancient trees and mossy tombstones. A ferry across the river, a brass-rubbing centre.
