I'm in a huge work storm just now, so I'm going to have a little break from the blog.

For those of you who like the horse stuff, there is the red mare page on Facebook. I have to write a bulletin there every day, because I'm training for a charity challenge to do a one-day-event this autumn. I want to record our progress so I can see where we are and what we still have to do.

For those of you who like the dog stuff, there are obviously many, many Stanley and Darwin pictures on Facebook too.

I love this dear old blog. It's where I come to stash my happy memories, so that one day I may dig them up when I am old and grey. It's where, occasionally, I admit to my hurts and weaknesses, on the days when I can no longer do a tap dance. It's where I remind myself about the small things and how important they are. I love that there are Dear Readers here who have been with me from the start and put up kindly with all my idiosyncrasies.

I don't want to do it from duty, stuffing it into five minutes at the end of a fraught day. So I'm going to run into the work storm with my special all-weather hat on and let this space lie fallow for a week or two. Back soon.


  1. I have always loved coming here, to read your beautiful words, to see your fabulous photos of your pups and horses. I will be waiting for you to finish your work and will visit again when you are back. Have a great week or two and good luck with all of your work.

  2. I quite understand you needing a break but oh, my goodness I do love your words. They're a balm no matter what you're writing. Take best care, all the best for the workload and please come back. xxx


    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  4. Yes,please come back. I wish you well facing your 'work storm'. Just know you are treasured and admired greatly, even though we are thousands of miles apart.I love curling up with my trusty Airedale, Maggie, and following you through your whirlwind life. Know too, that I so appreciate your generosity in your willingness to share your delightful, though sometimes heartbreaking narrative. Thank you.
    We'll be here waiting for your storm to pass.
