A fine morning but clouding over and an increasingly strong and cool east wind, a change not far away.  A schooling morning for Or de Grugy, Milano Magic, Daasij, Capital Venture, Little Glenshee, Jet Master, Northern Acres and Frankies Promise, still firm but taking the little and often approach.  Some advertising… we have an attractive two bedroom cottage for rent, see the details here – rent negotiable!
