It’s 6am, the car is completely white and it is foggy and freezing outside. I’m grumpy and I don’t want to leave the house, I even put this on social media (along with a photo of me looking suitably grumpy). Mrs S is a non-runner so I hit the road on my own, along with a playlist that included Bros and Bananarama. Things can only get better, and I’m pleased to say that they did!
The fog lifted around five miles from the course and as ever the welcome at Larkhill was superb, I can also confirm that I pressed the ‘select next track’ button when Bros came on – apologies to any ‘Brosettes’ who may be reading this!
Well, what a day, and Mr Grumpy was now Mr Happy, and there were only two cars left when I departed (and it was almost dark). A big thank you to Mandy and her team at Larkhill for a great, well organised day and an excellent lunch, and thank you also to the Barber team for their post racing hospitality – again! I’ll be working on that playlist before my next long car journey, although I have a confession to make, I pressed ‘repeat’ after the Bananarama track had finished!
