It was nice to be trundling along rather than racing, but it was a little dull compared to the weekend before.
The best part was the bonfire. It wasn't expected to be - the social group who were organising the event had built the bonfire about a week before and it had rained a lot. We warned the client that it might not burn and it took a lot of cardboard and patience with a gas torch to get it going, but eventually we did...
|It doesn't look that big without reference points, but it was at least six foot tall.|
The amusement factor of the evening was the low-lying fog which crept in after dark. It didn't affect the show too much, but the clearing up was interesting. At one point I could barely see my own boots in the light of my headtorch!
However, back to real life now - tonight I'm off to my first ballet class in two weeks...
