What I did on my 49th Birthday

4:30 - Woke up.  My current natural waking up time.  The overnight rain has blown over and the sun is out. 

5:00 - Drove to the river Windrush.  Baited four swims with 2 pints of hemp and a couple of dozen boilies each.  River is down another inch or so.  But, are the barbel in residence?

5:45 - Drove to the river Thames.  Walked 3 miles, baiting 8 swims with hemp and either sweetcorn or boilies.  Saw two kingfishers.

7:00 - Called in at the papershop on the way home. Bought The Times, The Independent, The Guardian, 2 small bottles of Coke and a Kitkat
