It’s been over a year since I last rode a horse, I’ve been meaning to book a ride for some time now but with working weekends I had little to no time in which to do much of anything. Thankfully working weekends is no longer an issue, I was therefore finally able to get back into the saddle and to make the best of yesterdays beautiful weather with a beach ride.
It was great to have a little time out to myself: being sat in the saddle has always given me the much-needed ‘peace’ which my mind seems to crave.
I was rather nervous about getting back on the horse, much-like riding a bike though – it all came flooding back.…
A moment to oneself is a rarity at present, gone are the days when I have the time to tootle down to the shore and sit contemplating the wonders of the World.
It’s all very well having time to yourself but for someone like myself, it’s far better to keep busy as having the time to sit and ponder isn’t healthy nor productive.
Earlier this week I was given two hours rest bite from the parenting pandemonium. After dropping my little darlings off with their Grandparents, I had fully intended to go straight back to the house of hound but having had a taste for freedom, I took a detour and sought sanctuary at the shore.…
Although I usually try to post images of a scenic nature on a Sunday, we’ve barely been out this week due to our recent addition. Whilst we’ve only had Maisy for just over four days or so we’ve already fallen deeply in love with our dazzling doggy.
Maisy isn’t entirely house trained as of yet but she’s trying her hardest and seems to be getting it right 8/10 times. Considering that basset hounds aren’t entirely easy to train I’m pretty impressed with her progress and am sure that give it another week or two we should have a little less mess to clean.…
Spring has officially arrived; the daffodils are in bloom, little lambs run around the fields, the birds sing each morning, easter eggs are being sold by the dozen, the clocks have sprung forward by an hour and lighter nights lay ahead.
Easter isn’t too far away now, one week to be precise. We haven’t got many plans at present but with it being the holidays, I’m hoping to have a couple of days out with the kids before our ‘spring pup’ arrives and the household becomes basset bedlam.
I love this time of year, everything seems to feel so fresh, clean and new.…
I wish I had the time to get out and about with my camera to shoot some scenery but with the weather, work and everything else, I have very little time for anything other than doing the essential day-to-day kinda stuff and even that I seem to be slacking with.
Yesterday however Paul and I had a day out as we travelled down south to meet Maisy, our new basset hound pup which we hope to collect in the next few weeks. We took plenty of photos whilst we were there including this rather sweet snap.
I have to say that all of the pups were equally adorable but there just seemed to be something about a particular pup which struck a chord within my heart.…
