How NOT to get invited back to Kite Festivals.

‘orrible weather here; our coldest October since 1943 and November’s even freezinger. It’s 8 degrees today and this is summertime and we’re on the same latitude as the south of France. Our warming seems to have been stolen- probably it’s a global conspiracy. I suspect Copenhagen- they’re warmer now than we are- and seem set to heat up even more in the next few weeks.

But it’s a relaxing time of the year here- for me anyway. I haven’t stepped onto an aeroplane now for six weeks and hope not to for another six.
