I’m writing this the night before another early start – Chaddesley – with a major decision still to make. Should I make the turkey rolls now, or in the morning? One other major decision has already been made, Mrs S will not be joining me at Chaddesley, and probably won’t be seen pointing again until spring!
Making the rolls fresh in the morning is the plan, but it will still be another early start – let’s hope it’s as good a days racing as we had at the Atherstone.
The 10.15 start caught a few out and I was a bit late on parade, but there was a still a decent crowd as they went to the start for the first Midlands Area fixture of the season.
There was a Christmas jumper competition for dogs, and also one for humans! We entered Percy. He didn’t win.
There was the usual back of the car gathering to finish the day, involving some tasty scran and copious amounts of gin! Then there was a bit of drama concerning my inability to remove my vehicle from the muddy car park. After much piss taking, Tom Ellis reversed it off – something tells me I won’t be allowed to forget this in a hurry!
