Bronte and I got up early yesterday to go to Midland Counties Champ Show (I realy mean early) I set the alarm for 5am set of for Stafford at 5.20 (or so I thought), after being on the road for a while the man on the radio said the time was 6 and I was near our destnation, a 2 hour journey, how could this be? I forgot to put the clocks back, instead of getting up at 5am when my alarm went off it was 4am.
Anyway we both had a great day at the show thanks to judge Jo Armstrong she gave Bronte first in her class then Best Bitch and Best Opposite..
