Camp June 27th
This morning, Bill Turnbull, we like Bill in our house, was reporting on the closing of Camp Bastion, the main British military base in Afghanistan. The size of it is unimaginable. It houses 28,000 people. It is a small town in the middle of the desert. Every singe item there has been flown in by aeroplane or helicopter.
And so, the word ‘camp’ is for Camp Bastion. Also a little nod to Glastonbury, happening now in full mud mode.
If you have not been following my napkin work, and have no idea what I am talking about, then read on (if you have been following, then I am about to repeat myself) and I will explain. The idea, at first, was to sew a word onto an old napkin for each day of the month. A word with some relevance for that particular day. However, as usual, I didn’t stick to my own brief. ‘One word’ soon became ‘a few words’, or sometimes a picture. The aim is to end up with a memento of the month. If you look at the cloud to the right, or at the end of the post, and click on the ‘napkin’ heading, you will be able to view notes about the other words.
