25 years and counting…

Discussions with the Memsahib regarding our 25th wedding anniversary. We have booked a room at The Castle Inn, Castle Combe, Wiltshire , where we stayed for our wedding night. We were cash-strapped in those days so it was only for the one night.

Anyway, some months back I booked the room and local to home accommodation for Sparky for a couple of nights. Now we have no idea what to do on our anniversary day in Wiltshire. The internet has no ideas apart from walking the village in which we will be staying, or a round of golf.

We are thinking of using our “pack of cards” exploratory method* to see what we find.

Meanwhile, searching for another occasion I found a wonderful dog-friendly hotel, but at a rather exorbitant cost. Maybe we’ll book it for our 50th anniversary in 2044?

*The “pack of cards” exploration method. Take a pack of cards. Deal them one at a time. A number card is the first turn, a picture card is the second turn. Red is left, black is right. Joker means go home (if you can find your way home!).

Sometimes we find interesting and fascinating places that would have remained undiscovered. Sometimes we go round in circles. Sometimes we end up on a dead-end cart track or in the middle of desolate woodland. But that’s what makes it fun.
