Something weird is happening round here. My wife Marianne has been adding “Likes” to jazz-rock music videos I have shared on Facebook. She has hardly missed a moment of the World Cup, and has been discussing players and tactics with me as we watch games together. And this morning she goes and says “Fancy a walk up The Cloud?”, adding “I want to be back for the World Cup Final though”. If I am dreaming, I don’t want to wake up…!
We drove out to Timbersbrook car park and picnic area for the scenic route up. Marianne enjoyed the walk, especially as we contoured around the north of the escarpment and the views opened up.
It was baking hot and we were in shorts and sandals. Not wanting to compromise the current domestic bliss, I just took the handheld. Eight QSOs were made, including a certain M0HGY back at the home QTH. Maz wanted to say hello so I supervised the greetings message!
We slightly varied the return route before heading home, domestic bliss intact.
