Horsing around.

No bad news over the weekend (touch wood, lol.)

Went to Bransby Home of Rest for Horses today as they had a gala open day. Was v. packed. Not much fun dragging Tilly around and apologising every time she stuck her nose up someone's bum! Ooh, just thought - for anyone reading the blog for the first time Tilly is our dog, not our child, ROFL. Here's a pic off Romy with a horse...


Romy is wearing her tie-dyed t-shirt in the pic. All the stuff turned out really well. I just managed to take a photo of it all newly washed and put on the line the nano-second before it began to rain and I had to bring it all in again!

Yesterday we went to Brigg to the farmer's market. It was ok apart from the stench of ostrich burgers and being accosted by the pro-hunt army, who tried to thrust a balloon into Roo's hands. She fortunately had the good sense and presence of mind to run like the clappers away from the old woman, LOL. Spent loads in a really nice fruit and veg shop there. Thought I'd picked up a bag of coriander but when I went to pay, the bloke said "Ooh, chervil. That's a very under-used herb. What are you going to do with it?" Doh! So of course I had to act all nonchalant and say "Vegetable stew" all the while hoping against hope that that wasn't a stupid answer ;o) Picked up a leaflet for the Woodlands Farm organic vegetable box scheme. If they deliver around here that will prevent any further blushes in that department, lol.

Friday was spent working hard in the morning and running around like a maniac in a pub play area during the afternoon. (Romy and Emily, not me!) Roo also went to her swimming lesson afterwards. She still wasn't tired that night. I honestly don't know how she does it!

Did a Real Age survey yesterday. Apparently I'm only 29, not 31. Cool!!!!

Off to do a 500 piece jigsaw of Europe we found for a pound on one of the stalls at Bransby today. Thought I'd got a good deal until I realised that most of the Eastern European countries have different names now :o/

Just a funny pic of Toby sitting in my scarf before I go. He's soooo cute!! Romy took it, hence no head. Though it's really better that way ;o)

That tie dye looks great! Am most impressed.

Glad to see Toby is fitting in well. lol If he's eating as much as his siblings you won't be able to carry him around like that for much longer! :)
