diamond geezer

 Sunday, March 29, 2020

In normal circumstances I'd have brought you a post about South Wales today, maybe Barry, then followed up with reports from Aberfan and the Valleys on Monday and Tuesday. But circumstances are not normal, so this outburst of content will not now occur.

My wasted rail ticket isn't the only thing I've had to cancel, but it is the last. By chance I have no other bookings in my diary from today onwards - no purchased tickets, no medical appointments, no social obligations, nothing. From today I may be in limbo but all I'm missing out on is potential activity. You may not be so lucky.

So I wondered what what my readers would be missing.

If you had something booked in April and can't now go, let us know.

Let's see if between us we can fill in a complete 30 day calendar.
Mundane is good. Extraordinary is good. It's all good.
One or two cancellations each, thanks, don't list your full diary.
I'll be including a maximum of four cancellations per day.
I'll be keeping it short.
