Sad day

This was a tough day, a mix of tears and laughter, as we mourned and celebrated the loss of our dear friend. It was so good to be together to share both sadness and gladness.

David would have appreciated that numberplate…and the green light too, I think.


Two European silver medals

In Gävle, Sweden, this week, for the u23 European Athletics Championships.

Nephew Cameron’s battle in the 400m final resulted in a silver medal - what a race. It was fantastic to watch.

In the GB relay squad next day he again took to the track, in the 4 x 400m final, and doubled his haul. Brilliant!

Carmargue sunrise

Waking up in the Carmargue, en route from Bergerac to Geneva, I was astonished to go out onto the lakeshore and see these flamingos lit by the rising sun. They were so unexpected. They looked like ballerinas in the mud.
