I have finally fulfilled my promise to the girls to take horse riding lessons. Expensive, hobby but I must admit that once there and riding around I was swallowed up in the horse world of my youth and could have cried with joy at the sight of these to riding around merrily. it was always my pregnant ambition that my children would ride but it just seemed so expensive and impossible not living in the country, however the riding school is the answer for now. The lesson involves all manner of horsemanship and riding and takes a little over two hours. They go once a week on Wednesday and being after school and deeply into this freezing winter we have now it is pitch black when they finish. They.Love.It!!
And then, on Saturday GHIU and I were watching tv (extreme makeover) and just seconds before the big reveal where we see what a new jaw, new lenses and a haircut can do, there was an almighty bang outside and the power went off. I sudenly feared the children had been electrocuted and fled down the stairs only to be meet by there startled faces looking out at the transformer across the road that had blown up!!! Well the Police and the firemen arrived being partial to men in uniform (obviously!) I thought I would do a bit of rubber necking. However proving that the apple hadnt fallen far from the maternal tree these two had viewing down to a fine art! I HAD to get a pic!
