DJ - plaited!

A Mini DJ Update

I thought you might like to hear that he is going well - I had a message from Toni's daughter to say -

DJ is worth all of his weight in gold, he won a showing class with little Rowan, even walked, trotted and cantered with about ten other horses! such a good boy! Mother doesnt want to keep sharing him now!

(Rowan is 8, btw)

The other story I heard about him was just as great -

His owner, and her friend put DJ, and another horse in a box and drove them the 10-ish miles to ... Windsor!  Then the 4 of them proceeded to have a ride around the town, and apparantly, DJ took the lead, and was on the outside at all times ... claver boy.

However, having spent the day in Windsor, and getting a first in a showing class, he would probably think he's too posh for me now.

It is just great to hear he is happy, loved ... and having fun.

I Suppose I Ought To Update About Me!

... Well, I've just given you DJ news, so I suppose I ought to scribble something about what's been happening here!

Short version - not much!

No, I must be honest ....

Last weekend was great -

We saw Tim and Claire on Friday, then Nick, Brenda and the boys on Sunday. 

You know sometimes I have been a bit upset abouthow Mum and Dad are with the boys - well we had a brilliant time.  Very chatty ... a lovely walk in the afternoon ... really nice.  My nephews had my camera for the day, and took 200 pictures between them!  I shall post some pics later - of the 4 boys, some amazing pictures that Andrew (almost 15) took, that I am also turning into icons ... and loads of Jiffy ... He had real fun!  The only downside was the horrific weather on the journey home.

I had another interview for a temporary job on Monday ... bad news is there were 12 being interviewed ... However apparantly there were over 50 applied, so at least it means that, on paper, I look OK.

Yesterday I went with my friend Christine, to Ugbrook House.  It is still privately owned, and in fact the current Lord took us round the main hall as a guide!!  No photos inside, this time - but be prepared for a pic scam of pics on the outside a bit later!

I am still having fun with my icons - and have signed up for 4 20in20 communities ... as well as my ongoing Spuffy, Star Trek Voyager, Farscape and faith ones!  I have ammended my CV and said that I am, at present, doing an unaffiliated Computer Graphics course ... maybe a bit of a white lie ... but thought it both showed I am using my brain, as well as doing something positive with my time.

Mum & Dad continue to be busy.  Dad had to have a small wart removed from his face yesterday, they say it should be "OK", but we get the results in a couple of weeks.  Mum is feeling better in herself, although has damaged her right shoulder, again ... when she was decorating.

I have been a bit lazy with my writing... I have the brain thinking, but getting round to writing is another matter!

Well, for those still reading ... I think that's me up to date again.

It's raining here, so I need to get a jumper, as it is cool, even indoors.

Vampire Spike + full moon

A friend bought me the DVD of Twilight for Christmas ... so much hype ... yet I couldn't actually sit and watch it.  To me, seeing the human heroine looking paler than the vampires was weird ... the scenery was wet (and therefore depressing) ... Then the vampires sparkled!  Sorry, but REAL vampires don't need to sparkle, their character's do it without the special effects!

So much so - I don't think I'll even watch others when they are on the tV!
