Sad but true...

... that the highlight of these summer holidays is very likely going to be our visit to go and see Jeremy Corbyn at a rally in Bangor tomorrow (in the park by Bangor Swimming Pool, 1.30 pm - 2.30 pm if anyone local is interested!). Surprisingly, it's been the only time that leaving the house this summer hasn't been met with complete apathy and the word 'no' by Ryan. And Dan, for that matter.

Me: Want to come to see Jeremy Corbyn in Bangor tomorrow?

Ryan: Oh hell yes.

Dan: Sure

Adam: Can I come?

Me: ...

We are off glamping in a couple of weeks, booked our little pod in Llangollen. My Kindle is backed up with books that I haven't had a chance to read yet (but still insist on buying...) and to be perfectly honest, I'm looking forward to a (semi) digital detox. No TV, no internet, just me, my Kindle and a nice glass, bottle, box of Shiraz. Plenty of long walks. A little back to school shopping in Wrexham. We've bought a new camping oven and it's so big that we're going to have to forego the coffin ice cooler and buy food from day to day. Either that or leave a child behind, and as tempting as that sounds... nobody's offering. But, it has a proper sized oven with two shelves so it really increases what we can cook, which will save a bit of money.

Crusaders also have a home match while we're away, against Coventry Bears on the 3rd September. Out of three matches so far we've lost two and won one and sit joint second, at the time of writing, so it can still be done!

Hopefully everyone else is having a less boring summer than we are...
