Sorry about the lapse in posting, guys; I've had no internet of late and feel a bit funny writing personal things in the library at my university, hoping that no one's looking over my shoulder. Anyway, I never realised how many people actually look at this blog let alone like it. I feel honoured; thanks.
So what's new? Well for one thing, I'm 20. Yeah, 20. That's pretty old. But to be honest, it's going well.
For one thing, I'm seeing someone (sort of; it's all very relaxed and basically what I want right now - espentially nothing but cuddles available), who I think is good looking and I get on well with. His friends are also awesome which means that when he's dicking around, I talk to a ginger guy with the weirdest side fringe known to man, who is really rather amusing.
For a better thing, I have the horse. He's hard work, it takes a lot of dedication and love but it's worth it at the end of the day: I love the animal and am willing to spend my time and energy on making sure that he's well and happy. It gets hard though, and I do miss having weekends without having to arrange specifically what to do with him. It's a shame because the yard I have him at expects the horses to be done by 9am every weekday morning and 10am every weekend. And to be honest, sometimes I just want a break. And having a day off doesn't work that well: I get a day when Georgie (who has her horse Milo there) and I organise it, so far it's been Wednesday, but that's only one day and it feels different because it's not actually a weekend. I can get around that, but I have been a bit late to the yard before, which means that I've been fined £5 for about 10 minutes more sleep. Ridiculous. So I think I'd prefer to have him elsewhere, but if I did then there would be significantly fewer facilities and people to ask for help, so it could be difficult. Therefore, I think it's probably worthwhile to just put up with that and keep with the professional, trustworthy help and excellent facilities - !
What else? Friends are cool. Becca and I are sound (touch wood, if it's necessary) and it's awesome living with her; we seem to get on well and give each other as much space as we need, really. It's ideal because we haven't actually needed to discuss it as such, we've just kinda fitted together. For example we've decided that toilet roll, bread and milk are communal and so we take it in turns buying them. It makes life very, very easy.
Anyway, having spoken about strict deadlines and horses, I need to tend to both right now.
Speak to you all soon.
Keep shining. X
