I won a Hot Air Balloon Flight

I came home yesterday to find an email telling that I had won a hot air balloon flight.  I was chosen as a winner for completing an online survey for M&S.   I confirmed I was happy to accept the prize and within a few minutes I had a call from Virgin asking for my details so they could send me the tickets. 

I told Kirsty, from Virgin, that I had been on a hot air balloon flight earlier in the year.  It had  been purchase in January 2009 and it took nearly 18 months to take the flight, but I am very happy to go on another one.  Kirsty asked if I would mind taking a photo while on the flight so Virgin could included me in their corporate blog.  As  I know how long it takes to get booked up and for the weather to be ok to take-off this flight will probably take place in the middle of 2011.  Now that is something to look forward to. 

Tickets arrived !!!!
