Back to normal

So the last week has been mental with Christmas on the way, trying to get everything organised for horses, child, staff time off and generally staying alive! Greg, Ella and I went to Olympia on Satruday with some very good friends and their children, it was a lovely day and the kids were amazing. However I have decided that I can't cope with crowds, realising this on Saturday I had the bright idea to go on the London Eye Sunday morning and then off to Harrods with Ella to show her the windows...

A Trying Week

So this week has been a particularly testing one, we have had two runners and niether ran like they were supposed to.
