I have again made the journey to the Midlands to keep a watchful eye on the staff. I was a little concerned about the overnight weather forecast and the impact that may have on my journey. Fellows suggested that I should put a shovel in the car "just in case". Once he had explained what a shovel was and how it works I told him to go out and procure one - wrap it in a blanket and place it in the boot (I don't want it moving about whilst driving and damaging the car or my valise). At the end of the day (at the beginning of the day) the journey was trouble-free and I had nothing to worry about.
