|Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015|
I have not been to Goodwood FOS for 4 years, and it's not because we now have Max, it's because once a year I have a full stock count at work to facilitate and it it takes two days, and it always falls over the Festival of Speed weekend! BUT, I've managed to get the count down to one day and this year I managed to WIN tickets.
Thank you Cosmos!

Once we arrived we sat ourselves down and had our lunch - just inside, no looking around, finding a patch near the house or track. Nope, we were up the top near the motorcross bikes so that was ideal. Off in the background we could hear the F1 cars going out and it sent little goosebumps down my arms, oh I do love Goodwood! I'd forgotten just how much fun it is!

We stayed all day and Max seemed to enjoy himself. We turned our picnic blanket into a 'cave' when it started raining, sent him flying down a rather fast slide and picked up a few goody bags along the way. By the afternoon it had all got a bit much for him so we let him have 40 winks under a tree - sleeping soundly whilst the F1 cars went round the track again!
He stayed awake the whole journey home and chatted all the way. I'm so so pleased he enjoyed himself and wasn't bored or wanting to go home, he never got to see some of the family area due to being fast asleep so this will be is a perfect excuse to take him back next year.
Thank you Lord March, Festival of Speed never disappoints.
