Well, we managed to avoid all royal wedding influence for the day until 3.30pm...we cycled along the shores of Loch Fyne to Furnace for a very, very late lunch and caught a glimpse of "the dress" on the news in the Furnace Inn...I am quite a royalist but did not want to spend a very nice day inside watching it so a'cycling we did go. This was all fine and dandy until we rang Garret and Toby who were going the faster road route to give warning that we were 10-15 minutes away from lunch, ended the call and Freya's chain promptly snagged...some very dirty hands and several long minutes later we got her going and with only one more similar episode made it all the way to Furnace. The reason for the loch side route was to get the way markers set etc. for our "I'm late I'm Late White Rabbit Easter Rabbit run" tomorrow. Freya is going to go and place the relevant signs tomorrow whilst I am doing breakfast etc....(I hope)...best laid plans of mice and rabbits and all that!

The heavens have opened in Argyll but training must go on... I had a try last night at some speed work round here but the wind and rain deposited me back home after three and a half miles of buffeting and drowning. Tonight's mid Argyll jogscotland run was similar but so much better with company... My energy levels were higher and the dogs do not like to run at the back of the group so we went round in record time!! Family happy at home as Rosie delivered Corner take on Carbonnara unaided.

Now the shameless begging!

Such a busy week with such a lot going on and so little time to write it. On Sunday Garret and the children took part in a paper chase at the stables with various partnerships being made and secret strategies planned...in reality speed was the key to success as a sweaty Clyde and Barra testified when returning with the eventual winners Toby and Myrna.....The day was such a success with no barrier to competing beyond the ability to ride...and hold on tight!! The last week of term passses always in a flurry but this week was extra fast flowing with Toby being made deputy head Boy, competing in a basketball competition that raised the teenage tackles so far they nearly exploded and my big brother, his partner Jane and my new(ish) little nephew Billy arriving on Wednesday night for a little holiday. too many runs to put down but here is today's..a lovely scenic run round Ardcastle...loch and forest all the way. Happy dogs and Happy Fee!!
