Having lost track of what day it was, I was rather annoyed to be woken up at 8am by the sound of school kids disgorging from a mini-bus and excitedly rushing the rivers bank for a field trip. I then checked my watch and saw the letters 'MO' staring at me, and realised that I was back in the real world now. Another surprisingly good hot shower from …
