We are getting busier as the horses are now coming in and the lads are coming back from their holidays.  Watched Andy Murray get beaten at Wimbledon which put me in the dumps and then to see Konta get beaten as well really did make me depressed.  I bought a superb new tennis racket last week and feel like taking it back now!

Have been at Newmarket for the last two days for the sales and managed to buy a couple of nice three year olds to go hurdling . They will run quite soon as they are fit from the flat and we just need to teach them to jump and of course find owners for them.  I was in a queue at the Co-Op last week buying a jar of coffee and was behind this young fella who was asking the woman on the till a question.  He was looking a bit embarrassed and finally asked her if they sold any contraceptives in the shop.  She replied ‘No but have you tried Boots’? He looked a bit puzzled and said ‘Do you think that would work’?
