5 Years on and not a pot in sight.
Today marks 5 years since Marion & I
were made redundant!
Yesterday was the day My Balloon ride
that Marion bought as a 50th Birthday present
finally took off
I'm 51 now!
Having inspected the basket I was apprehensive but excited.

I helped as much as I was allowed with setting it up.
I was right next to the pilot, well you can't really

you can't see from the ground
The sun came out
we went up to just under 5000 feet
and the sun was setting as we looked for a suitable landing site.
we were able to watch deer running in fields.
This is a close up of a wheat field from above
it looked like a giant woolen jumper.

what a great way to end the day.
so How do we top that next Year.
Well next year on the 8th August 2014
We get Married !
