I had a very enjoyable tour of the Midlands on Monday and Tuesday. I experienced a myriad of weather conditions but managed to miss any flooding, though the rivers I crossed in Shropshire were very full and fast. Some high points were meeting our two new artists Jane French and Frans Wesselman and talking to them about their work, discovering a great viaduct in Rutland, going under an aquaduct in Telford with a narrowboat chugging across it, driving under an airship as it flew over the M5 (we need more of them as a means of transport, it looked lovely), passing historic battlegrounds of Naseby and Bosworth, spotting the most fabulous chalet bungalows ever, passing through villages with bizarre names – Cracklebanks and Sheepy Parva were a couple of favourites – and frankly just driving along Britain’s roads and looking. Bless you TomTom sat nav even if you were a bit tempremental finding a valid GPS signal at times.
My trip though long in miles and rich in experiences was nowhere near as long in time for this parcel that was returned to sender and arrived back with me this morning. I don’t know if you’ll be able to see the postal date on the photograph – in case you can’t it says 19th October 2010. Where has it been? And what has it seen?
(I can’t get this blog to stop lining text and pictures up in this random manner – it offends me and I’m sorry)
