24th July 2017

Good afternoon everyone,

Well it's been a mixed weekend, Friday was rained off, I was meant to go to Wotton under edge to the church there but instead headed back to the trailer to dry out. I tried again on Saturday, got caught in a very heavy downpour when I was in the middle of nowhere, and was thwarted by a wedding when I finally got to the church! So again I headed back to the trailer.

Sunday was another wet day and is a case of having to move to my next stop which is preplanned by the time I got to the leisure centre in Yate it was easing off, monsters of the Cross Hands hotel again in the orchard the sun was shining, well for a little bit. I had to apologise to the management there is apparently Missy lesson presents that I didn't know about, a tad embarrassing to say the least. Later in the afternoon the heavens opened it didn't half come down! I did deploy the rain shield and then contemplating making a new one for the other end of the trailer...

This morning I headed towards Tetbury and try to do Badminton church on the way but the churchwarden wasn't available, one thing I noticed as I left the village was a lot of press photographers outside the main gate to Badminton House, no idea what was going on there. It was then onto Westonbirt School and church, again I was to be thwarted, this time by a film crew were apparently going to be at the school the next week, this means I have to come back and try again.

This week's a bit of a limbo week waiting for the meeting in Birmingham, I don't stray too far from the campsite that be staying at on Sunday and Monday. Apparently Wednesday and Thursday are going to be very wet so be glad of bit cover at Tesco in Tetbury.
