So the last post found myself in a farm site in Winchester. I stayed there three nights then returned back to base, having done some useful work for the client. I continued working for them from home and returned again last Monday evening. It's not a bad journey - 81.5 miles according to the GPS.
It was raining heavily a good deal of the way and although this camp site is very nice and tranquil, it has no concreted roads or hard pitches. So my poor transit van was sliding all over the place. Here is a pic of the camp site and the van I would hope to trade my old transit van in for - after I win the lottery.
One interesting little thing was having to break up a fight between a duck and a rooster - the rooster getting the worse of it.
The guy I was working with was rather surprised when I told him where I was staying, and they suspect me of being some sort of hippy type character, dressed in suite and tie.
Next week I will be working from home again, but likely to have to travel back to Winchester Thursday or Friday. I will most likely go back to this site, it's so quiet and not a light anywhere so completely pitch black at night.
I'm well over 40 days now without a cigarette. Looks like I'll be travelling to the Connecticut for a couple of weeks in February. This is something I'm looking forward to.
