I feel immeasurably better than I did this time last night; even though today as usual went slower than hoped, still partly due to the rain. But this evening unlike last night is fine and mild, I’ve just walked back through the woods encountering a young folks’ party on the meadow near the end of the walk, and a hedgehog just as I entered the campsite. I think today was enormously helped by having a steady, helpful and enormously sympathetic in all senses of the word helper, Helyer. .don’t really know how it’s spelt. Rather than the testosterone fuelled atmosphere that dominated yesterday. Tomorrow unfortunately Helyer won’t be around, but tomorrow is another day. Now: time for a nice shower and bed..
