The recent spell of unseasonably warm and settled weather has been a welcome foretaste of forthcoming spring and summertime pleasures. Over the last few days I've been strolling through London parks, in the Nottinghamshire countryside and around the splendid streets of York.
I have also been creating my own Best Loved memories. Last Friday night I had the chance to enjoy a splendid evening of fine food and conversation with the legendary Henry Blofeld, affectionately known as Blowers, at Langar Hall. Blowers and his TMS broadcasts have been a constant travelling companion through my thousands of miles of driving throughout Britain. If you enjoy cricket and would like to have a similar experience, please write to me.
