Spectating

Christine, Bixslade

We’re visiting the in-laws for the weekend and today Christine managed her second fix of orienteering for the week at a NGOC local event at Bixslade in the Forest of Dean. I took Emma out for a walk in the carrier with Christine’s Mum. Even though I occasionally had trouble staying vertical on the muddy footpaths I was grateful not to have to venture off the paths in to the thick undergrowth (where the controls were apparently well hidden in traditional NGOC style). We arrived back just in time to see the exciting conclusion of the race between Christine and her Dad. Christine finished first but not by a big enough margin. For the first time in I don’t know how long Christine and I went for dinner on our own – nowhere more exciting that Pizza Express in Monmouth but it was still a nice break.

    Dave,
    without wanting to split hairs, Blixslade is in the forest of Dean and not the New Forest.

    cheers,

      Well – it’s Bixslade but I take the point and have corrected it above. Not the first time I’ve made that slip-up and undoubtedly not the last.

    but now my comment doesn’t make any sense and I just look like
    an idiot!

    cheers,

      Well – if they’re reading your comment then hopefully they’ll read mine below. And maybe even this one: NEIL DOES NOT LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT!
