We are going to Cheltenham tomorrow if we get done in time here and I am very much looking forward to it. The weather has been gorgeous and it is wonderful to see the daffodils all coming out and the hawthorn hedges about to burst into bloom. It is such a lovely time of year but I am viewing the signs of spring with a degree of suspicion as I cannot believe that we have got off so lightly and that winter is really over. We have only had one or two proper frosts and I will be very surprised indeed if we don't get any snow before April.
