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.

After the snow I went into a snowless Edinburgh.

Lauder Common

Because of an afternoon conference call for a client, I only had time for a short morning walk.

There was a convenient bench up in the hills for a tea break.

I had packed my titanium meths stove for this trip – my Alpkit gas stove o-ring seal has been giving me some problems. It was completely still, when I came to make some tea later in the evening, so I sat at the picnic table and brewed up.

I spent a showery afternoon, in the car, drinking tea and watching videos on my iPhone.
