Morning, early morning in fact I would postulate it’s still friggin nighttime! Now not only was my slumber permiated by the ‘Blood Moon’ (sounds so Hammer house of horror) the other night, it seemed for all intense and purposes that the gods of darkness conspired to ruin yet another night of dreams! What’s going on? … More Looking out a dirty old window
It’s been a while (well a little while) since I dragged out my keyboard and dabbled with these keys! Unfortunately I’m in the throes of man flu (tbh, I have a sore throat and a shitty cough) I put it down to riding around Tynemouth at the weekend with fecking tractors kicking up the dry … More You spin me right round baby right round
It was always going to be a day of ups and downs. The ups because we have achieved a week with orses and not been kicked or trampled to death. The downs because another course has come to an end with new friendships and acquaintances “bomb bursting” as soon as they could. Morning stretches as … More Johnny five is alive!!
Darcys dilemma! Do I take the black or the cream jodhpurs today? Well I opted for the black as I thought they looked quite fetching the other day, so black it was. Starting off with a sausage sandwich (this time the bus was late so I could troff the scoff to my delight). As we … More Four wheels on me wagon (well, legs on me horse)

Another late rise (the sleep is crap with these beds, and Tommy’s heavy breathing) so the daylight shone through my window for far too long again. This time, however, I had time for a cup of tea after I dressed meself in Mr Darcy clothes. Jodhpurs and riding boots were the order of the day … More He likes a walk about.
Two little boys had two little……oh hang on! Breakfast, well, a cup of tea as getting up this morning wasn’t really an option. Seeing as I had no sleep last night due to the uncomfortable single bed and Tommy’s snoring I refused to rise when the seven o’clock alarm went off! Insert/ delete where appropriate. … More 24 hours later
I would walk 500 miles Well, change walk to ride, then change 500 to 250 miles and you just about have it for today’s adventure. Leaving my flat at 10 (ish) this morning, the sun bleached through the clouds and it looked for all intense and purposes like it was going to be a good … More Arrival at the ranch
Whats a good way to start this missive? Shall I regale you with my story of embitterement towards the doddery old driver who couldn’t see past the windscreen of his car? Or would you like to reminisce with me my future plans for jotting down my inner most thoughts on paper (or screen). Let me … More Here in my pocket, I’ve got the story of the blues
Let’s get the elephant out of the corner first! Well I Say elephant, they were fecking HUGE beasties lurking around my kitchen last night (in all probability still there today) I could hear their hob nail boots clanking under me fridge AND cooker! They plot! We’ve all heard the media hype about big arachnids looking … More Spiders from Mars
