Sister and family stay overnight on way to half-term camping holiday. Am impressed by precision of nephew’s plans for university and career, as well as his desire to Do Some Good. Inspiring examples of Good done by own career prove somewhat elusive.
Wake up to heavy and steady rain. Tell sister they are welcome to spend half-term here, with beds and hot running water and roof which only leaks occasionally, but they set off determinedly in search of Adventure. Realise that own plans for half-term distinctly lacking in Adventure and am about to ask children if they mind, but find that they have gone back to bed.
