I am rereading "UK on a G string" by Justin Brown for inspiration.
He is a New Zealander who made a bet over a rugby match with an Australian.
If New Zealand lost, he had to go to Britain and raise the money for his return ticket by busking door to door.
I might have gone busking in Abergavenny today but it was raining hard - I felt sorry for the three kids turning up with their saxophones and music stands for their stint.
I was travelling around with the Grass Routes bus in preparation for my test next week. It was surprisingly intensive. We picked the customers up in Glascoed, Goitre and Usk, went to Abergavenny and then came back for another set of people from Raglan and area. Then we went back to Abergavenny and picked them all up again - twice. There was just time for a bacon sandwich in between trips. What a great service!
I resisted the temptation to burst into song and pass the hat round on the bus.
Plus, I am not really looking forward to those country lanes when I get behind the wheel.
