We were offered tickets to go to a Point to Point through my Beloved's work. Instead of lethargically saying no thanks we decided to give a joyful YES. So dragging along some reluctant children who eventually came round, we drove off to spend the day in the open air. And guess what? I had a ball again! Hurrah for expanding my comfort zone.
We even got to watch from the centre of the circuit. One of the riders fell off in front of us at a fence which was rather scary. He closed himself up into the smallest ball whilst the other horses thundered around him. Then he unfurled slowly and got up. Boy was I relieved to see that. Winded but not wounded.
I was busy keeping my boys safe at the time but my daughter managed to catch a slightly blurred picture of the moment of falling.
Thanks guys, you paid for our icecreams!
Quite an exhilarating day. Oh and did I mention there was candyfloss. Candy Floss, people. That gloriously sticky pink stuff. How could it have been a bad day?!
