Really brave!

I think the theme of my blog this year should be On Being Brave!!  Last month I had my job interview, yesterday I went up in a microlight!
OH has his microlight license and part owns one.  He's been preparing for months to get enough flying hours to allow him to fly a tandem one.  With me in it!!  Yesterday the weather was perfect.  Very cold but perfect.  It was amazing :-)
Some of my friends have said I'm brave.  Actually, I was terrified.  9 years ago I had to go on a Fear of Flying course so I could get on a plane to go on family holidays.  I was (and still am to some extent) scared of flying.  But I have decided that being scared doesn't achieve anything and I might as well do it anyway.   Not sure if that makes me brave but I keep watching the video of us taking off and I feel really brave :-)


  1. Wow! What a great experience. I've always wanted to be a bird so I could fly. So glad you were brave!

  2. Oh, you are sooooo brave. I am TERRIFIED of heights and therefore I know I would have fallen out of that thing even though I'm sure you are very secure in it!! Good for you!
