Plus 17 and dry when driving in.

Archie was woken up with rain landing on his bed and Clare was seen rushing round the house closing windows. Dogs barking and all frankly going mad..

I slept through the whole night, oblivious to the storm and the dogs barking...

Thibault was second last night at Southwell.

David Bass was in this morning. We jumped Blazon.

I am at Lords today for the Irish v England Test. Irelands first visit to Lords for a Test match. Stephen Cannon, Kevin and Dermot Clancy joining me (Two for Gold) .. Yes support for Ireland growing..
