I have been working all day at Jeremy’s flat on his laptop. Last week, one of our suppliers failed to complete their part of a project on time, so I had to complete the Octagon part today. We will deliver the work to the client on schedule. It took all day as I also had to write a manual as I went along, so Jeremy did my shopping and provided lunch and dinner. But I did get the job done.

When I got back to the campsite, I knew rain was on the way, I’d driven through it, so I quickly settled into my tent.

It is now gently raining on the tent and time for some tea and a book.

I have to be in Edinburgh tomorrow for Jeremy. Because of a project I am heading up for Octagon Technology, the original plan was to break the journey this evening in a hotel. However I managed to complete all my tasks by lunchtime, which meant it was a good excuse to get away from Lincoln early and spend a night at one of my favourite campsites.

Dinner was an upmarket, Japanese “pot noodle”, which was very good, tea and M&S, Lemon and Lime Jaffa Cakes.

I have been tweaking my lightweight backpacking cooking kit.

I have replaced my Alpkit Kraku stove with the latest version. I bought one of the original models when they were released in December 2013 and it has done excellent service, but the o-ring seal became unreliable in September last year. Alpkit sent me some replacement rings but they kept failing – the latest design has a higher valve assembly and a different type of o-ring. So it was time for a new stove.

I have changed my tea-towel for a lightweight pack towel, replaced the battered homemade windshield for another homemade windshield and found an even lighter lid to use as a chopping board.
