Centenery today. A truly lovely man, whose writing was an inspiration. I met him lots as a child at the local Cricket ground which he loved and later as a teen in the local Pub. Raises a glass today.
Laurie Lee Centenery today.
Heard the piece on the Today Programme as I was late for work.

Mrs North's birthday is on Midsummer's day, which always brings to mind his walk to Spain. I must re-read that.
*in the chorus, natch. My precocious schoolfriend Jake played Laurie.
Given the location of my house I had best raise two glasses this evening.
Absolutely loved all his books. A great writer.
