 I wish I were one of those people who could make a good first impression, but instead I keep displaying the behaviour of an oddball.

I've got some ginger heritage, so I have to be very careful not to get sunburned. I spend most of Saturday standing in bright sunlight in a paddock with no shelter or shade. I'm English so I don't have a separate umbrella and parasol, so I was walking around on one of the hottest days of the year, in a drought, with an umbrella. Worse the handle broke off and the best temporary repair I could make was to stuff a large screwdriver up the broken shaft and use that instead. I think that the first thing everybody I met probably noticed was the broken umbrella grafted on to a screwdriver handle.
