Stepping Gingerly

This is the first time I've ever blogged from a hotel business centre, but there has to be a first time for everything and this is my introduction to "mobile blogging".

Looking forward to the ginger nuts and ginger beerLinda, Augustus and I took the 12.45 from Paddington yesterday and we are now safely ensconced in a very pleasant hotel in Carmarthen and ready to head off shortly to The National Botanic Garden of Wales.

I've always wanted to visit West Wales and today's event was a definite "Yes!" the moment I heard about it. So I don't want anyone going round saying that I only came because I could get in for free.

For those of you who don't know what's going on today because you've been asleep for the past few days, or find Notting Hill Carnival more to your taste, the reason I'm here in Carmarthen is this. I'm really looking forward to it.

I hope you enjoyed the day. I was there myself - shame we didn't meet up because I was hiding from you.
