I was in London yesterday for Voice Over work and lovely girlfriend Nikki with me. Took her to ‪Fortnum‬ and Masons for ‪afternoon‬ ‪‎tea‬.

The store and tea shop especially has a wonderful traditional feel, as if stepping back in time. Couldn’t help laughing when I looked at photos this morning and saw waiter in background scene stealing our photographic moment. Fabulous !!!

Oh my goodness, I knew weather wise we’d had an easier time in the West Country lately, that is until today.The winds have been incredible with icy rain blowing horizontally, the like of which I’ve never seen in the UK. Stud manager David and I with the help of his wife Elaine, brought all horses from the fields and they are now happily ensconced in the warm but first a roll in the indoor school.

12509191_949500831765407_1437882217329789619_nFirst week of the month had a meeting at the farm with friend Liz Brewer, founder of “Life after Breast Cancer” and Leonor Stjepic CEO of pioneering RAFT. It would take pages to explain just what this charity has achieved in its 25 years but it is inspirational.

RAFT is going to be the umbrella for the project closest to my heart, the realisation of “Lasting Life” the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy.

Today Liz and I had lunch with Sir Ben Slade at his magnificent Maunsel House in Somerset and he has kindly offered to host a dinner for the launch. There will be so much to share as this journey unfolds and it’s just the beginning…….

Thank You

The house seems so quiet even with my gorgeous chatty collie, his presence so huge

Life so often is a roller coaster ride many ups and many downs and importantly one keeps smiling through. Sadness for me personally over Christmas saying goodbye to my gorgeous Irish setter Tenor MacCorkindale, friend and soul mate for 13 wonderful years.

Feel young again my darling boy and run fast as you can to the safest of arms…
