We don't get out much in these parts - so the chance to go to Ikea in a massive horsebox was a source of great excitement for us Limousin girls.
After a busy morning sorting out all the horses nine of us laden with coffee flasks, sandwiches, crisps, cake and a few bottles of wine for the way home climbed into the hgv horsebox full of anticipation for the day ahead in Bordeaux.
The excitement lasted approximately five minutes before the clutch in the lorry went, and we ended up piling into two cars, with considerably less cargo space for purchases.
It did cross our minds that one of our other halves might have sabotaged the clutch cable to restrict our spending power!
A good time was had by all though, and the journey passed so much quicker than it would have done in the lorry we even had time to stop for a chinese on the way home.
Back home Neil has started work on his workshop, which will free up the barn to at last become a lounge. I can't wait for him to have a purpose built space, and he can't wait to be able to have the space to work without incumberance.
Today we started learning a musical ride with the horses. We are due to give a 'show' in September at a local fete of the horse - all I am saying at the moment is it is just as well we are starting to learn it now, as it is all very confusing at the moment, but we have lots of time.
In the garden the first snowdrops have appeared, signalling that Spring is on its way, and as soon as I can find my camera cable I will upload some pics to show you!!
