Being away from the desk for a few days is a good thing – at least for me. I have been visiting the Welsh Borders. I don’t make notes as such but you can never be quite sure where the next idea is going to come from. It’s never just one idea but a collection of ideas that start to string together. Strolling round a grand country house and its vast gardens does tend to make the imagination run riot and I did just that a few days ago. Any ideas from that will have to go onto the back burner for the moment.
