Having driven there from Cardiff with Tony in an old Bedford ambulance owned by some hippies without driving licence. It was now painted Green had no brakes it turned out and sauntered along to the tinkling sound of Tibetan bells. Dealing with children's clay workshops - and firing the pots over the weekend was child's play by comparison.
