Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
I’ve just received a phone call.
We are on for tomorrow.
All I need is a trailer, bucket, bathroom scales and a long stick.
I have a confession which I haven’t admitted to. I can’t reverse with a trailer. It all turns horribly wrong and I end up getting stuck. Then I have to unhitch the trailer. Turn the car round. Try and push / pull a heavy trailer up to the car and rehitch it. Oh no, I’ve only ever done this when the trailer has been empty.
Whenever I HAVE to take the trailer I carefully plan my route so that there is absolutely NO reversing.
How can I admit this pathetic failing to all these farm folk who have been driving and reversing tractors with HUGE trailers since they were about ten years old …..
