Extremely muddy, we hopped back in the car and drove to the Cotswolds. The weather was mostly overcast today, but we've been here a week and we've been rained on twice, and even then, it was not heavy enough to even use an umbrella, so we're not complaining about the weather yet. It would be really lovely to live here, though I would worry about the lack of bright sunshine. In the Granary where we had lunch in Hay-on-Wye, they had certain tables equipped with UV lamps specifically to combat S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder), so it may be quite common up here. We drove to Broadway, where we took some photos and stopped for yummy spicy tomato and lentil soup with sandwiches and hot spiced apple juice. Such a great lunch! Then we drove onto Chipping Campden and went off for separate walks, except I found a second hand bookshop and then sat and drank a chai latte while reading an Agatha Christie novel, so that filled up my hour nicely.
