Knee deep in the Test


I had to jump into the river in January, to rescue a pencil – obviously a special pencil. It was not too cold and I was wearing wellies.  Since then I have learned to be more careful, don’t balance anything on the edge of bridges, don’t talk to strangers, and don’t boast.

Today I forgot; I chatted to an interested stranger, told him why I was sitting so carefully on the edge of the bridge and dropped my most expensive brush into the water. It floated. Away. I had to run across the bridge, climb over wire to get to the river bank and plunge in. I was up to my knees wearing plimsoles and jeans.  The interested stranger was busy trying to work out how to take a video of me splashing around, and then asked why I hadn’t taken my trousers off. This is why you don’t talk to strangers.

Despite an early bath it was a glorious day.  We walked 5 miles, drew, painted, photographed and admired some acrobatic helicopter flying. As the year progresses, and the Test gets broader and faster the changes are noticeable. Today the colours of spring with young leaves on the trees, and new grass on the banks made January feel like a long time ago.
