Best idea I’ve had today – nipping into the Nags on the way home for a beer in the company of Clive, Matt and Hamish. I’m utterly exhausted after an awful day in the rain at Stansted. If you thought Friday and Saturday were bad, it had nothing on today, one of the wettest and most miserable days I’ve ever spent at a plant fair. I felt really sorry for Jane and Lizzie, the organisers of the event. Jane and I help each other out with our events as much as we can (and it is probably fair to say that I gain more from that than Jane does), and we empathise with each other’s problems. I felt sorry for them today – the weather spoilt what should have been a brilliant event, but to give credit, the attendance was brilliant in spite of the weather.
