My thanks to my playing partners, Vanessa Statham and Stephanie Overton, for keeping me motivated. I had 23 points on first 9, then 1 point on the 10th, then a glass of Pimms and a slice of cake, at the Halfway House, energized me to get back on track, to score 18 on the back 9.

It was lovely to get dressed up, having a meal and glass of wine or two and finally sitting outside enjoying the warm summer night, bliss! My thanks to Suzanne for a well organised day and for the metal water bottle we each received and the lovely handbags received by winners of the day.’
