Way Up In the Air in My Beautiful Balloon

For my 40th birthday, Si bought me a flight in a balloon.

I was very lucky - the first weekend I was free, I phoned, and I got the weekend I wanted.

Even better, the day before, when I called to check, the flight was still going ahead.

We awoke to a beautiful morning (at 3.30) - We had to be at the departure point at 5!!

Right up until the moment the balloon leaves, it could be cancelled. There were people in the balloon with me who had attempted the flight 3 times. One even getting as far as getting into the basket, and then it was cancelled.

But we went. A slow ascent, waving to Si and the kids below..... and off we went.

Dream like and gorgeous.....
