We had a very early start, June picked Jodi up at 5.30 and was at me before 6am......we must be mad! It was a lovely day, freezing but sunny and we saw a gorgeous sunrise on the way down which I tried to capture with my camera.
There was a bit of drama during the show when the fire alarm went off and the building had to be evacuated..........I happened to be in the ring with Rosie at the time. Outside, we waited for the strapping firemen to arrive to alleviate the frozen boredom of standing around outside but no luck there, now THAT would have been a photo-opportunity, sadly we only saw one rather short bloke in a day-glo hat!
Back inside.....wet-wipes everywhere before going back in the ring, Rosie had decided to sit in the mud!
Alfie, who was full of the joys of raging hormones, was a brat. So hyper. All day. It was all a bit much for Rosie though and she flaked out, probably best as Bathgate is not her favourite venue (nor mine!)
We took a few ribbons home between us, Jodi being the most successful, taking a red rosette when Molly won her Junior class, well done! June's Kaiya came 2nd in a good sized class so she was pleased with that.
Rosie got a respectable 3rd in her class and Alfie got a less-than-respectable 3rd in his (there were only 3 in the class!). Oh well, you can't win 'em all and we can't complain.......Alfie has had a very successful year.
All packed up and ready for home.......in time for tea!
