Northwards

Left Talgarth around noon, stopped for lunch at Leominster (Ler-minster), just north of Hereford, and headed up the A49, getting into Wigan around 5pm. Blisteringly hot day. Finished reading Michael Frayn's early (first?) novel The Tin Men.

4 new certificates from the NSW Hatch, Match and Dispatch registry - many more overdue from London. Discovered from bank statement, that car rental agency had double-billed me for time in July. Smallish package from Amazon including:

  • Mark Helprin's new novel Freddy and Fredericka.
  • Newsradio seasons 1-2 on DVD
  • The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) - CD of a set of short musicals, the same story being multiply presented in the style of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim, Herman, Lloyd Webber and Kander & Ebb.
