A fine, clear but chilly day training Sam and working at home. News from Nigel was that the paint-balling was off for Remembrance Sunday and I was relieved at this news.
A large part of the day also telephoning and writing to Fountain Forestry, complaining about them trying to overcharge me for my deer stalking.
A fine and clear day, though chilly with the wind from the northern quarter. Two good runs and another day-time training session with Sam who is doing quite well. He walks to heel a little better and is both very steady and very good to the dummy launcher; retrieving dual dummies both up and downwind. I tried to call Jim Bird and see how he was doing but could not find him at home.

Word from the last of my council contacts today and support for our Cambridge Street plans so that I could put the final actions in place for making our planning application. Advice and information from Andy Carmichael, further instructions by fax to our draughtsman and then agreement over the fees and form with Nigel and Diana and so I should actually get the application in tomorrow or Monday. Telephone chats with Sally and Derek about planning and party matters. It seems that there was sense in the flamboyant scheme that Roscoe had mugged Nigel with and I must brief him about it before long.
News from Nigel was that the paint-balling was off for Remembrance Sunday and I was relieved at this news. After an agonised night, I had decided that I would have gone for Nigel's benefit but that I would have been distracted. A large part of the day also telephoning and writing to Fountain Forestry, complaining about them trying to overcharge me for my deer stalking. They seem to find innumerable ways to keep increasing their charges now that tree planting seems to be a thing of the past. My evening updating these last two days journal and trying a little reading before bed.
