many thanks for a marvelous parcel

thank you my friend for the wonderful parcel that arrived safely. so many useful things, I love the socks and t-shirts , one has been worn already... and the candy didn't last long I have a very sweet tooth! and I'm looking forward to a warm snuggle up with the cats and read my cat book.

this was so very kind and really cheered me up. bless you. xx

making things

 i've got out of the habit of making things... gardens, cross stitch, anything really... and a friend sent me this when i  moved here  eight months ago.. gosh that seems like a long time.
so i finally got round to opening and painting, a little bit of fun. nice to have a quiet five minutes.

lovely morning out riding

very many thanks to Gill who took Abbey and I out in her lorry yesterday and led the way on her brave horse Louis.
we did a six mile ride up to Glen Quey and back, part of the old drovers road that would end up going through Dollar and Falkirk. gorgeous country side. we had a bit to eat and a bit of a paddle... not much though.. lol

Theory of Relativity... if you were to pinch a horse.. and it looked like the one you already have, would anyone notice if they weren't standing in the same place at the same time?

About four days a week I ride these two, one in work time and one in my own time. They are both welsh, both mares, both a bit well padded... pretty girlies.

I am thankful for their willingness to come in and be my companions for a time.

fly away Blossom....

I picked her up from the floor about ten days ago, she had flown into the rafters the day before but the next day she was down... an exhausted lost racing pigeon. A local falconer checked her over as uninjured but nothing left of her, no muscle .. nothing. She was kept quiet in a cat basket with proper food and today was driven a distance to be returned to a delighted owner reunited with her sister who was missing her.
Huge thank you to Gill for taking her down.
