Before I set off for Y Waen, in Wales, a visit to the Staffordshire/Worcestershire Canal, in England

It’s Welsh Cup day today, which is my favourite football competition.

With The New Saints on the road against Chirk AAA this afternoon, I’ll be on my way shortly.

Before I set off for Y Waen (that’s the Welsh name for Chirk) though, I went fishing first thing this morning.

Although at the time of writing this it’s warm in my living room as the sun rises over the valley, it was chilly earlier.

It’s what we call autumnal isn’t it.

Nice days but outside of the sun putting in an appearance, it can be cold.
