What a lovely week we have had, warm sun and hardly a cloud in the sky! I only hope we don't pay with snow when we are meant to be out eventing!!
We had a super day out hunting on Monday with Blinx, Flo and Darcy. All three were brilliant, this is expected by Darcy and Flo! I was so pleased with Blinx as although always been a good boy today he felt like a grown up, he stood patiently at the meet and then was awesome all day jumping everything asked of him some of which were bigger and more testing than we have met before.
The rest of the week we have been busy at home keeping up with the fitness and schooling of everyone as well as keeping up to date with the tack and rug repairs.
Saturday I was meant to be holding one of my jump clinics away from home but due the the Equine Flu and several cancellations I relocated to home and had a thoroughly enjoyable day, the sun shone and all the riders and horses went brilliantly.
The evenings have been taken up by sorting out the new website, I hope you all like the new version, and after many hours our new online shop is up and running, please have a look and let me know what you think.
A lot of people say to me, "I don't know how you fit it all in" well my main secret is I have a lot of help. My girls are very good and enjoy coming to work with me as they spend a lot of time whizzing round on bikes and running round fields and I feel they are so lucky to experience this freedom as I did when I was growing up, they do resemble grubby urchins by the end of the day but are very happy little girls. Both my parents and Leons are brilliant helping with child care as is Cherise, as some one asked me the other day do they see her as a second Mum to which Ila replied more of a big sister as she's not old enough to be our Mum, Cherise was thrilled that they thought that!
