Up early today and on the towpath for 0630 and it was lovely. Broad daylight and hardly anyone around. And today was scorchio – hottest day I’ve had so far. I had to get to Leamington Spa for 4pm to say hello to the ladies in the Alzheimer’s Society ofice there. They gave me tea and let me sit down – bliss. Tonight sees me couchsurfing at Joe and Sarah’s house with their lovely children. We have had a show and tell and the kids have all had a go in my hammock. Tomorrow I’m going to call into an outdoor equipment shop as my trainers are a bit like me – tired and worn out. But morale is high and I’ve passed the thousand pound mark on my JustGiving page. One more day to Brum and then a rest day.
