Blimey it's happened again - time whizzing by and me suddenly remembering the blog and thinking that if I don't write something I will be in major trouble with either my or Mags's mum.

Jason has been over again and bless him has been working his fingers to the bone log chopping, digging and basically having a go at anything we chuck at him. I keep apologising for having such poor accomodation in return for his labours but he seems quite happy tucked away in the little caravan. Still I suppose anything is better than the tent that we put up for him that nearly blew away (with him)one stormy night!!!!

Neil is busy in his workshop working on an oak door that someone has been patiently waiting nine months for. I have installed a phone in the workshop so that I can call him in when (I think) his time is up. Trouble is, now that he has some decent lighting and coffee making facilites in there I am never going to get him to come in for his tea as he doggedly works on...

Dutch bird has been internet searching more musical rides for next year. I had to laugh when she showed me one video of a group of fresians all performing quite high level dressage movements (well they would be difficult on our young untrained horses). It was quite a challenge just to get the horses to go in a straight line at the show, let alone sideways whilst high stepping. I think she needs to have a reality check but I doubt she would agree with me.

What do you think about it?


  1. Aha, I am in the UK so can watch this :) Tres bien.
    Arrived back here to pack up and have got the worst cold/flu that I have had in years!!!! Hope N does not catch it!!!! Just want to get back to France. Diane x

  2. It's much healthier living out here in the country Diane - hurry back!! Hope its all going ok and they install broadband before you get here!!!!

  3. Love the smug look on Lenny's face ...and the white of Tess's eye!

    I enjoyed the musical ride...but doing that with youngstock...outdoors, in a wind..and with people moving about...well...rather you than me.

    And you mean you let Neil have coffee making facilities in his shed?
    Before you know it he will have gone all French on you and you'll open the door to find the shed full of blokes nattering...those floors could take another nine months..

    Now I'm going to do a memory test on the neighbours...to see if they remember the last pics of a musical ride and the explanations thereof...

  4. Well Neil tends never to stop once he has started - so the least I can do is ensure he is hydrated!!
    I think he would be in his element if there were a bunch of French guys chattering - he loves to practice his french!!
