Plus 11 and raining when driving in.

Thursday is our easy day and after yesterday first serious work day that was the case.

There was a big turn out for John Dunlop’s memorial service yesterday and the horses at Goffs sold well..

I forgot to mention yesterday that the exceptional flowers that brightened the tables of Ian Will’s party on Tuesday night were arranged by Kerry Bellamy.

Kerry, who was my PA for many years, left to set up her flower arranging business and judging by what we all saw on Tuesday night she will have many happy customers.
