RSC South West Conference

The cascade at Rookery Manor - a waterfallAt last – WordPress seems to be behaving itself again.

I’ve just finished day one of the two day RSC South West conference, which is being held this year at Rookery Manor near Weston Super Mare (and almost on the M5!)

I travelled yesterday and stayed in front of what seemed to be torrential rain up and down the country. My train was on time but the @Examiner Twitter feed implied that there were problems on the rail line between Leeds and Huddersfield, due to storm damage.

My gig(s) with @jamesclay are tomorrow, so today has been fairly relaxed and we took time out to plan the keynote we’re delivering together and the workshop we’re sharing with @broadcastmedia. Other than that, it’s been time for reflection and for walking in the wonderful gardens here. The sunshine helped – but the grounds are tremendous. I can certainly see why brides want to get married here. The photographs at this time of year must be brilliant. The conference (and breakfast) coffee however – leaves much to be desired.

Tonight, we had a barbecue. A good selection of meats, spoiled by cheap sausages! Lovely sunshine right into the evening and then heated lights in the marquee. Fair enough.

See for Rookery Manor pictures.
