I hear the red boards are out on the Thames, and now I've got a cough, a cold and a headache. I even missed a lunchtime visit to the Anglers at Marsworth today. We need to go up that way to collect our beer for the weekend from Tring brewery. Kath had to go without me.
On the positive side, this cold might pass by the weekend and we have nearly a fortnight from today until we hit anything you can properly call a river, so we may be OK as long as the wet weather eases off. The forecast for the weekend looks OK. Grace will be one year old on Saturday so we'll be having jelly and ice cream with our samosas at the Slough Festival.
