The walking isn't getting any easier to be truthful and since arriving in England we have faced only apathy and ignorance from the communities of Ellesmere and Whitchurch, which has put a great deal of pressure on Mark and I as we need our audiences to provide us with a bed, food and money. It is at this point I'd like to make it very clear that Ellesmere and Whitchurch has the highest proportion of three fingered inbreds I've ever seen and even a smattering of hunchbacks.
Last night was particularly bad as we were supposed to be performing in Whitchurch but due to poor promotion of the event no one turned up, the person who organised the show refused to put us up and we were left having to walk the 9 miles to our next venue (more on them later) who kindly agreed to put us up for two nights, rather than one. It only went to show Mark and I just how vunerable we are and how much we need the kindness of others to survive.
And of course, walking on busy roads with no pavements and heavy lorries passing within inches of you meant that we were putting our lives at risk, eventually, we made it but once again we'd pushed ourselves too hard.
So our lovely home with broadband connection that is housing our show is the Fordhall Community Farm and I'd like to thank them for putting us up and looking after us so well, we would have been doomed without you!
The farm is a big story in itself and actually needs your help, so if you want to save a pig or save a farm of the future that produces organic and ethical food, I'd urge you all to visit the farm's website and learn about their wonderful story and perhaps even buy some shares in the company or donate money to their cause, their kindness deserves some kindness in return.
After tonight's show Mark and will embark on what we've called 'The Wilderness Period', 3 nights and 4 days where we've no bed, no show and 47.5 miles to cover.
Keep us in your thoughts...
