I kept waking up last night!
I dreamed that K left me on a cruise boat, and that I had failed at a job as a nanny, but the truth of it is that I my thoughts were with my friends who are standing in very cold temperatures waiting to hear if they will march with our balloon.
I've just read this article which describes the situation perfectly.
Last year we got special instruction on dealing with the wind as the intersections were especially windy and had to lower our balloon at each cross-street, which is a lot of work!
Anyway, I hope everyone tucks into a wonderful meal and has a great day.
