|Will He Win?|
The eventing season (in Europe at least) is drawing to a close, and that means Pau CCI****. It's already all over the news that there is some serious $$$$$ at stake courtesy of the HSBC FEI Classics Series, and William Fox-Pitt needs to win Pau in order to snatch the bonus right from underneath Mary King's nose.

Mary kicked off her season with a meteoric rise, coming 3rd at Badminton, and slapping first and second on her horses at Rolex. William as we know won a historic 6th Burghley, amongst countless other victories this year. Thinking about it, it seems to have been a year for historic achievements in eventing, and definitely a year to savour!
Anyway, how are these two subjects connected? (my sister's house and the season finale at Pau). Well, having packed off the children for a long standing Disneyland Paris treat, courtesy of Granny, I'm headed straight back to Gatwick (overnight with my sister) for a meeting with our European sales team, to give them a preview of a very cool prototype app I'm about to release into the iPhone App Store, before jetting off to Pau for a little more camera practice and to write an article for a magazine.
It's all been a bit last minute dot com, but I love it when a plan comes together! (I even managed to persuade someone to mow the lawns whilst I'm away)
For more on the whole King/Fox-Pitt rumble in the Pyrenees here's a few links, as I need to finish a my slides for tomorrow's presentation (always last minute, always rushing).

Oh, and this time I have car hire booked, and SatNav with me, I just don't speak French (apart from that line from a song - you know the one!)
