Always take a torch!

Its dark in the countryside.  It is a glorious thing that we do not have street lights here.  On a clear night the stars are especially twinkly. Tonight was not a clear night! Tonight there was no moon.  Tonight I stupidly forgot to take a torch.

I’m just back from meeting a lovely couple who want to get married next year.  They live a long way from the main road.  I thought it would be a good idea to shortcut home through the farmyard, forgetting that at night all the gates would be tied shut with that orange binding rope, forgetting that I didn’t have my wellies in the car.

Torches and wellies are two of life’s necessities. So why do I never have them when I need them?
