Day 1 - Day 3

There are some things that are best wiped from one's memory bank and my involvement in Programme 2 with the weather station is perhaps one of them. Our challenge for this programme is to monitor the weather and, by the end of day three, to be able to forecast the weather. This is an unrealistic challenge in that it would take us days of data-recording to come anywhere near being able to do that and even then, we all know how unpredictable the weather can be (even out here in the Tropics) - ask Michael Fish or the Met Office. This is a crazy challenge.

My heart's not in this one at all...I can't wait for it to be over. At least my girlfriend, Cherry, will be coming out soon for two weeks. I can't wait to see her but before I do, we've got to get Programme 2 filmed. But on that point, the least said the better, I'm afraid. I just don't want to talk about it. Sorry.
