Plus 14 and dry again this morning

Yesterday was rather quiet in the yard not much to report when Kim rang for his daily update.

Leigh was back in tidying up the horses, they really do look well. 

England won last nights game......... I am not a fan of football but apparently this seems to be a pretty big achievement. "The 67,500-strong Wembley crowd erupted with cheers and chants when the final whistle blew. Supporters wearing England flags and red and white face paint shed tears as the reality of the final score sunk in. England would be in their first major final for 55 years" 

I am going to say there are probably going to be a few people not turning up to work next monday after the final!

Away from football, sorry that's as much as I am going to indulge, I love to support small business so I thought I would share a few favourites, all chocolate related........Best Brownies, Best Chocolate, Best Icecream, Best Macaroons
