I am in here ‘curing’ with a nice hot toddy on the settee. Lynnie had been busy too; embroidering. She hasn’t embroidered for 29 years but has done a cracking job knocking up two Sue Ryder Care Logos; one for the rucksack and one for my Paramo Velez jacket. I will be the Beau Brummell of the LEJOG.
Lung Update: (You all want to know) the scrabbling sparrows have decamped, leaving behind two vinegar soaked brown paper bags that wheeze a lot. The seam sealant gloop has taken hold somewhere near the bottom of the lung, but this is slowly being forced out by the hot toddy’s fumes.
The Bed & Breakfast planning has only got as far as Midsomer Norton deep down in the south west, and the parcel planning has not yet started. The YHA membership card and handbook has arrived.
I am still having problems blogging through the PDA linked to the phone and so I have a bit of work to do and not much time to sort it out.

SEAMS & SEAMSTRESS
A late night last night in the village, followed by a good lunch in a Northamptonshire stone village gastro-pub. By the time we were home the weather was still quite perky so the new tent was put up and the gloop prepared for sealing the seams; one part squeazy see-through sealant one part thinners. A lethal combination all mixed up in a yoghurt pot and painted on to the tent and groundsheet seams. I finished by the light of the head-torch. It’s out there, out in the cold, at the moment, ‘curing’.
