Oh good, that’s the lighter quilt on the bed, must be getting closer to summer. Ok so it’s still pretty cold, I'll just pull the throw over me. That’s great to get Tag out without a rug on, no, wait a minute, I think we’ll just put a rug on at night. Well that’s us … Continue reading Zombie
'Stay at home'. Yup, no problem. No Asda for weeks on end, excellent, (that is one place I definitely do not miss). No running around like a headless chicken, telling the kids that eating their tea in the car on the way to football training is all part of the 'craic'. No staring at a … Continue reading Stay safe?
Oh you live in the sticks…. ****hole of nowhere then....You know there's some nice houses on Property Pal.... I couldn’t live up there….Bet it’s a nightmare in the winter…… And yes, it is a bit of a nightmare in the winter, at times, but at the minute I couldn’t be more grateful to live where … Continue reading Comfortably numb
There’s something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while, but it’s an emotive topic and I really don’t want to start a social media argument with anyone, but I can’t keep it in any longer…………… The Great Sex Debate.

In other words there are no hard and fast rules about how to work them, but still the library is full of books aiming to impart their wisdom on how … Continue reading Automatic or manual?
So I'm looking forward to getting back in the saddle and following a week of doing little more than lying in the sun and making sure my San Miguel beer was cold, you would think I was more than ready. But it appears that the journey of my back has not reached the finish line … Continue reading A novel idea
So I’ve promised myself that I will give my body a break from riding for a couple more weeks as I am absolutely determined not to go back to square one, if I can help it. At the start of our enforced rest, Tag did his usual and worried about why he wasn’t doing anything … Continue reading No sweat!
Even when I'm not sure of much else, I know that when I'm in the saddle, or even in the company of equines, everything that I am, kinda 'clicks' into place. Having recently 'unclicked' myself - with a back that decided it needed a rest - it has given me a chance to have a … Continue reading Cocky or confident?
On the run up to any competition there is always a ridiculous amount of planning that goes into making sure as little as possible is left to chance. And unless you are happy to hack around the countryside, everyone at one stage or another wants to go to a show and be proud of what … Continue reading Lightening the load
