Two hot-air balloons, *missed them by that much!





So I am lying in bed, the house to myself, contemplating training the cats to get the newspapers in the front garden, when I hear this whooshing noise. Haven taken 3 hot-air balloon rides myself, I recognise the sound, and quickly scramble out of bed.

The bathroom calls, and I pee as fast as I can (TMI?) and then throw some clothes on.

Meanwhile, the noise now sounds so close it could be in the next room, sounds like Dr Who is landing!

I grab the camera and dash outside only to find not one, but TWO hot air balloons drifting quite quickly over my house.

Right over the top! By the time I hold the camera to my eye, they are well and truly behind the lovely large leopard tree, argh!

Missed them by that much! *sighs

I deleted the comment above because it didn't make sense.

What I was wanting to say was that we always want what we do not have, without thinking about the problems that are attached.
