Plus 16 and dry when driving in. That was warm and at times a very wet and noisy weekend too.

Top sport.. Man City completed the treble.. the ‘triple crown’ and probably not quiet as difficult to win as the horse flat racing one.. who was the last horse to do so?.. Nijinsk of course.. There is of course a triple crown in the USA and their last winner was Justify.

Talking brilliant winners. Novak Djokovic won yesterday French Open and set a new record.. he has now won 23 grand slams.. one more than Rafael Nadal.. Remarkable if not controversial player..

Andy Murray came good too.. He won The Surbition Trophy.

Australia beat India at The Oval to win the World Test Championship..I fear we are going to be seeing and reading a great deal more about this Australian Cricket team as from Friday at Edgbaston the 2023 Ashes Series starts..Love them or not they are what makes England’s cricket.. the old enemy are over!!

In lesser news and probably far more controversial.. Boris has gone and not be outdone his 'good' friend Nicola.. has gone too, but in a slightly diferent mamnner.. Not bad for a weekends news!?

Monday morning and a quiet start to the week.

We welcome Charly Bond today as she starts at Thorndale in her new roll as Head Girl.. Charly has been working for John O’Shea for the last 6 years and before that she was in the MP..Good luck Charly and welcome. I know she is going to be a huge asset to the team.

We have one runner today at Southwell.. Faerie Cutlass heads there and for my thoughts please click here.

The Aussies are taking over this week.

Guy Rooker sent this one over in honour of the great Australian sense of humour.

Three Aussie blokes working up on an outback mobile phone tower:

Mongrel, Coot and Bluey.

As they start their descent, Coot slips, falls off the tower and is killed instantly.

As the ambulance takes the body away, Bluey says, 'Well, bugger me, someone's gotta go and tell Coot's wife.

Mongrel says, 'OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.'

Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Beer. Bluey says, 'Where'd you get the grog, Mongrel?'

'Coot's wife gave it to me,' Mongrel replies.

'That's unbelievable, you told the Missus her husband was dead, and she gave you a case of beer?'

'Well, not exactly', Mongrel says. 'When she answered the door, I said to her, "you must be Coot's widow."

She said, 'You must be mistaken.. I'm not a widow.'

Then I said, 'I'll betcha a case of beer you are..'

Aussies are good at that sensitive stuff.
