NaBloPoMo 22nd May “Inside”

Finding a photo to illustrate ‘Inside’ was quite a tough one. Most of my pics are outside shots.

But here’s one. A couple of years ago my Dad was 80. We’d lost Mum the previous Christmas and it had been tough for everyone. So as Dad’s 80th birthday approached, we wondered what we could do to give him a bit of a lift. He’s always loved horseracing, and I remember family outings as a child to Goodwood, Plumpton and Fontwell to see the horses race, either on the flat or over the sticks.

The first weekend of August was Glorious Goodwood and fitted in really well with the timing of his birthday.

We arranged for his brother to fly down from oop North, organised a stretch limo, an enormous picnic, drinks and 16 daughters, husbands, nieces, nephews and brother aged 3 to 80 piled in and went to Goodwood for the day. The sun shone, the horses (sometimes) won, and it was really a day that memories were made of.

    • It was lovely all being together, but it wasn’t the most comfortable vehicle I’ve ever been in – sitting sideways on leather seats with no seat belts – didn’t feel quite as secure as I would have liked. However as it was full, if we’d stopped quickly none of us could have gone far!

      • Oh that is not a vehicle of choice for serious travels for sure πŸ˜‰ but once in a lifetime – I think I could manage πŸ˜‰
