August and the English Nationals – the dogs (Tsavo and Zac) were ready for it and so was I – up to the week before when I damaged my back just before Macclesfield trials – really painful and put me off my stride – ‘though the dogs won the brace at Macclesfield as I hobbled around. Then very very disappointed to be disqualified from the brace at the National on final pen the gate touched a sheep – but I’ll be back!

Channel4’s ‘Come Dine with Me’ shown at Easter gave me chance to wear all my glad rags!! I never go anywhere!! It was an experience, long hours and late nights and then getting up at the crack of dawn to train my dogs!
