These two just took off from the playing field opposite us, the Virgin one really struggled to get any height for a while - bet the folk in the houses panicked lol.

They can make a racket when getting the air hot enough. Me too Lorraine.

They look great. Something my Mum always wanted to do. We did look at it for a birthday once but she changed her mind!

Good shot of the Virgin one being fired up, Di!

It is one of the most lovely things I have ever done - so peaceful and quiet up there and you can hear the dogs barking and people talking on the ground, despite being so high up. Kenny bought me a trip for a birthday a long time ago ... my 60th I think ... but I have never forgotten the joy of it all.

A few years ago I won a trip for two in a Virgin balloon.
I had a bad back at the time so Den and Dean went, and they
loved it. They flew over Oxford and saw our house from the air.
