Once again a glorious morning in Adlestrop with some of the string still cantering, while others are out on their summer holidays.  For many jumps trainers life is not too dissimilar to normal with the end of the season beginning a bit earlier than usual.

Anyone who has ever worked for me will know I like to get plenty of ‘jobs’ done – so there’s plenty of steam cleaning and painting going on, to ensure that Adlestrop Stables still looks as smart and tidy as ever.

Anyone who happens to read the Telegraph, will hopefully see Marcus Armytage’s final whistle article today on the subject of home schooling.  When I rang ‘Fluff’ last week, to congratulate him on the thirty year anniversary of Mr Frisk’s Grand National victory, he explained the article to me and really does make me chuckle.  It’s essential that we keep our sense of humour in these troubling times.

A very Happy Easter to you all.
