Yes maybe half an hour ago - his chin was qivering - bless him - then they had an interview with him.  He said he will not come back for an 8th Olympic competition - the horse will be too old

OMG it was Ted Edgar he worked for, not Harvey Smith - what was I thinking of   Of course! 


It was a long time ago and I am getting old..... 27 after all ... no wonder my memory's a bit dodgy

He can't be Fairy - he's nearly as old as me!!!  I've been watching him since then too - I remember him winning the Puissance at Olympia when he was n'owt but a lad ... beating his boss |Harvey Smith into the bargain if I'm not mistaken.   I'm such a fan!!!  Large celebratory G & T being taken here

So pleased for him!  Such a fine horseman!   I've been a fan of his since he was a lad working in Harvey Smith's stable -  watched him win the Puissance when he was n'owt but a lad.  Drinking his health here in Norfolk.

Obelixx   normally I don't do orange either - I even gave my Geum Totally Tangerine to Wonky as it was too orange ... but I just love this begonia - it works really well near our blue garden seat.

Im not a fan of most begonias, but I adore this one, bought to give a bit of pizazz to our newly acquired Sunny Corner. 


How can you fail to love that?


i love it so much I've put it in the studio to protect it from the stormy weather weve been promised.

Not to mention one of the commentator's repeated confusion of Grenada with Granada 

What are you most proud of/pleased with?

Thought so!!!  Be Careful!!! Don't you go drowning yourself in that ... it's a long way for one of us to run down with the water wings
