Another character feature tonight, as the end of the first draft looms. Cath, Ed’s wife, is the guest of honour this evening.
What can I say about her? Loyal, reliable, caring, long-suffering? Certainly the latter! Cath is a plain-looking, but still attractive, female of medium size. She is of Welsh origin herself, but is not a native Welsh-speaker. She came from Newtown, Powys way originally. Like Ed, she is great friend of Patrick, having known him for as long as she has been married to Ed. She moved with her husband to Llanberis from Machynlleth when there was a need for good engineers with a flair for inventiveness to restart the power station.
Her immensely caring and tolerant nature means she can handle someone with Ed’s brilliant eccentricity. However, her mettle is tested to the extreme by a sudden ominous turn of events later on.
Until the next time….
