And so- against all expectation- we were able to set off for Oldham in the early afternoon. We left the motorway at Banbury and had a pizza. You know the nursery rhyme, "Ride A Cock Horse To Banbury Cross"? Well earlier this century Banbury put up a commemorative statue. As such things go it's rather fine.
And now we're in Oldham- and I'm faced with starting the work I've been doing in my head for the last couple of weeks- and hardly know where to start.
