I went with friends to an undisclosed location in Cambridgeshire for the weekend. FINALLY FINALLY the sun came out and though it was crisp, we had some good weather this weekend for which I am eternally grateful. I am also eternally grateful to have lovely friends who appreciate the value of laughter, even if it's IN MY FACE when I bowl yet another gutter ball. Thanks guys; keeping me humble since ages ago.
The fens in the East of England were verdant. I spent an inordinate amount of time on the train on the way home thinking about fens and wondering if all the visions I'd had of Cathy and Heathcliff were completely geographically inaccurate. I think I was seeing some kind of marshy arrangement but with heather for moors? In any case, the fens were lovely and the rape flowers were glowing eerily where ever we looked.

*Fields of rape are planted for rapeseed oil, just in case I needed to clarify that. I appreciate this sentence sounds horrific if you don't realise I'm talking about the plant - SICK SICK SICK AND VILE!
