Riding Days – postponed – but not indefinitely…

Mum is still in hospital and no matter what I do it is on my mind there fore I do not want to ride. Rufe is still scurfy and soaked in Benzle and Baby Oil – and soon Benzle, Baby Oil and Tee Treeย  so isn’t wanting to ‘go out’ – not even for Blue Bells.

Flax is Flax – very fat after winter in knee deep grass…

Buddy looks great – but as long as I am thinking of ‘what ifs’ I need my feet on the ground – since Tash died 6 weeks ago my walking has lessened and my fitness plummeted –so – when Dan came last week to do the foot trimmingย  I booked the next two visits as trims and the next one – early Sept as two trims and one set – that is the only inducement I have to get fitter that might work – and if I fail to do so then I will be giving up riding. If I do start to act on that fitness plan then Bud and I can start ground work etc again…

Prior to Mum’s illness we had planned to work on the shed this summer – drainage, surface and tree removal, new stanchions etc and I had hoped to get Bud down in the village while that was going on – but now I do not know if we will do that or not… Either way Bud will stay here – so I will need to get fitter – despite horse flies and long grass or calves etc…

May —This month be sunny and safe…

Rough plan –

This first week I have been catching up the non fiction blogs and working out what to do with the farm blog – and why I am not writing farm based non fiction books. I still just want to write fiction ๐Ÿ™‚ So I actioned my plans and caught the blogs up with pictures telling the story – would have been great but for a combo of Microsoft and Window’s 10 and Apple trying to update my machinery and really slow broad band – turned a morning’s work into a 15 hour day ๐Ÿ™ So it is just pictures and few words – ๐Ÿ™‚

Next week it is Bank Holiday and the next day corresponds with the day that the third part of Hacked series kicks off so I aim to start writing and keep going on this till The End. Having said that Chris Legg – another local writer – is giving a presentation here on Self Publishing either Wed or Thur next week for myself and others who missed his run through previously I have also booked up some workshops over the summer and the first of those is 13 May in Dorchester – that one is Short Story writing which I thought might help with freebies and give aways. Who knows if that will even be relevant with GDPR laws stalking the lists…
