You can have too much of a Good Thing
Biophilia in this case. Standing around outside on a freezing and damp Essex marsh whilst the half-term children leap about generating kinetic energy to stay warm.
I think there’s more of it tomorrow too. Standing around at not-so leafy Lingfield watching the Winter Derby Trial amongst other things. I remember going there one autumn half-term with the kids. Drew a total blank on the nags and had to run the gauntlet past some kind of python shipped in for the kids entertainment. I felt like grabbing a visor myself that day. Speaking of which, well done to Young Mick, George Margarson and the team out in Dubai as he lifted another 1m4f race. Not as prolific as he once was, his wins nevertheless have a special place in my heart.
