I have spent my day so far waiting for BT – so what’s new the country’s most unreliable company does not show up for an appointment!. If BT spent less time on online dating and cared about their customer service things might improve a little.
At lunch time I took a walk up Steep Hill to the Cathedral and got this detail on a lamp post.
Here is a detail from yesterday’s “photo of the day”.
Michael needed a tent today – there was no way he was using my MSR Hubba but in my cupboard was this “Force Ten”.
I think I bought this tent in 1980 during a trip to Scotland – over the years I used it a lot for camping and I even backpacked with it! My pack weighed much more then than it does today. I stopped using it when I got a lighter dome tent and this “Force Ten” has not been out of its bag for nearly twenty years. When we unpacked it today I expected it to be no good, I especially thought the ground sheet would have perished and the proofing on the flysheet to have flaked off, but it wasn’t. Except for two perished rubber bands that connect the inner and outer tent the tent was in excellent condition and went up in the garden without any problems.
…and it has rained this afternoon and it is not leaking either.
