An Early Start

My eldest daughter starts work at 6am Saturday and Sunday and this weekend and next after working for several hours she will be training to become a dinghy instructor. She has been sailing with the Helford River Children's Sailing Trust since she was seven and going to work there with her Dad nearly ever since, she is a volunteer assistant instructor there and at the sailing club. So as she is going to be out on the water most of the day we had to get up with her to make her packed lunch and a flask of coffee. 

No point wasting the morning so the dogs were walked early and then on to the field. The ponies seemed a bit surprised to see us but quite happy to have an early breakfast. The droppings are much easier to find and pick up now the paddock has been rolled but I don't know how long that will last, the ponies big hooves will soon churn it up.
The weather is due to change so just a few extra forkfuls of weeds dug up this morning from inside the polytunnel area, really can't see the polythene going on any time this week.

A quick sit down and then off out to walk some friends' children take part in a cross country race.....rather them than me!

And finally a big thankyou to Chickpea for my first ever comment.
