On the way home last night, Catherine described it as the best day ever. She has said that about thirty times this year, but it’s a good sign nevertheless. 🙂 She was a bit miserable during the second qualifier, when I was making her do more of the work and she was running low on energy, but after dark, when she’d had something to eat and the cold wind had dropped, she was excited again by the new (to her) experience of orienteering with a headlamp.

It was a great event, with plenty for a child to do between races. Hopefully Cath Williams will do it again next year, but if not, maybe Harlequins can organise one on one of the mazes on our patch. (Or POTOC, at Brereton Heath.)
