Another cheesy cheating pre-written blog I’m afraid:tonight I’m in Stratford on Avon, and while the place I’m staying in has wireless internet, it’s about fifteen pounds a second so I don’t think I’ll be using it.

I’m in Warwickshire because tomorrow is the training day for New Wine: For new readers I’ll explain that New Wine is a Christian festival that I attend every Summer: The event has its own medical team to look after the 12000 delegates, and I’m one of the first aiders who work alongside the the nurses, doctors and paramedics on the team. We’re all Christians and we’re all volunteers who give up two weeks of our summer holiday to come along and do it, so it goes without saying that although during duty time we work to the highest standards, we make sure we have some fun as well!

Anyway, tomorrow (as long as I get this to post on the right day) is the day we all meet for our pre-event training. It’ll consist mainly of those of us who’ve been before telling the newbies how it goes, although we’ll all be doing a Basic Life Support refresher, to make sure our qualification in that is as up to date as it can be. I haven’t seen any of my New Wine chums since last year’s event, and two of them have got married (to each other) since then, so I’m really looking forward to it.

And luckily for you, my loyal readers, the place I’m staying tomorrow night – the Earwash Cat’s Shelter, aka Jenny’s Gaff, does have free wireless internet, so you might acksherly get a real-time blog :-) . That’ll be the first one since Monday!
