We paid a brief visit to an organic farm shop which is frequented by Prince Charlie himself. In fact the owners, who made their wealth from the JCB tractor empire, started the organic farm shop for the sole purpose of getting into Prince Charles social circle (or so the story goes....). As you might imagine, it was very expensive, but the whole area seems to have the money to sustain these sorts of places.
So relaxed, replenished and feeling a lot better, I headed down to Ebbw Vale in the Valleys in Wales where my sister has just bought a house, before heading to Chamonix in the French Alps for 2 weeks of climbing, biking and general being really fit and healthy with my sister Mary, her fiance Steve and friends Woollie and Scotty.
