Here are my Klosjes for the week - 6 again. This makes a total of 45! I have been focusing on my hexagons this week for Swan Lake so I really haven't got anything new on the patchwork front to show you. I have however, had a huge day today, in my role as a mother of a 23 year old boy who seems to be addicted to the rush of adrenalin. Nic has been working on his Black Beast since Christmas, getting it ready for his big day today. You see, he has discovered drifting. Drifting is racing around a track, fishtailing and going sideways around the corners (I'm sure that's not the official description but this is how it appears to me). When I arrived at the race track, all I could hear were the screeching of tyres, see huge plumes of dark smoke with the smell of burning rubber. This photo shows some of Pit Lane. I was amazed at how many cars had turned out for the day. This is certainly a popular sport with the younger population. Here I am with Nic and his car after his first session around the track. The bonnet was up so the engine could cool down a bit. He was very pleased with himself and I was very pleased he and his car were still in one piece. I must say, in the beginning I was very sceptical and thought it was just for "Hoons" but now I am very impressed with it all. It is very exciting to watch and even though they appear to be out of control, they really are in control of their cars. I think it is a great way for them to push the limits but within a safe and supervised environment.
I have just spent about two hours drafting this post because I wanted to put a video on of Nic driving today. Needless to say, I have had a lot of trouble and I still don't know if it will work once I publish this post. Anyway, here goes... Sue-Anne xxx
