As usual I have let my blog lapse and totally forgotten to update it for a while! We are now in Lockdown number 2 for a month (started on bonfire night) and again eating places and non essential shops are shut but the rest of life seems to be carrying on as usual. This lockdown is England only, Wales had a 'firebreak' two week lockdown over the childrens half term holidays which was very sensible as this time the English schools are not off at all which seems crazy. The number of parents hanging out together walking home from school show that they aren't taking social distancing seriously at all! I'm currently working but there are a few people on FB making anyone trying to carry on with lessons feel very guilty despite guidance saying we can. The winter battle with the weather versus my field has started and in general I think it fair to say that Matt and I need a holiday and a change of scene!
Anyway, on to more exciting news, Matt and Bru competed in the British Agility Novice Stakes which was three runs (agility, jumping and steeplechase) and the three results are combined to find the overall champion. Rupert was AMAZING and came 2nd in the steeplechase, 2nd in the agility (with 5f...coming out of the weaves at the 10th pole!) and 5th in the jumping despite falling over in tunnels! But he WON overall!! 💛🎉🏆 Unfortunately no videos as I couldn't watch!
Last week I had had enough of fireworks as well, as there were no public displays I think a lot of people were having fireworks in their gardens. So cue a week of very upset Spark shaking and crying every evening 😢 She even went off her food this time.
