A victory, however small, can put a spring in your step even when you’re not competitive like me (ahem!). Take this morning, HP and I left for work together and as usual he got out of the drive and up the lane before me and went right towards the round about. Now I had 2 choices here I could either follow him as a dutiful wife or make a bid for victory by cutting across by the shops and trying to leap ahead of him as he came off the round about. This does sound sneaky but I will add it is a trick that he started and sometimes it works and sometimes you just see the other person sail past you with a smug grin on their face while you wait for the 10th zimmer frame passing to get out of your way! But today it worked, hurrah! with adrenalne pumping I saw his car glint in the sunshine, I steadied myself, put my foot on the accelarator, judged the distance, speed and with a spurt of fuel I was ahead and victory was mine! Small things…small things….
