Things have been a little hectic here recently. I do get very busy in the run up to Christmas but this week does seem to have been particularly busy. Therefore, it was especially nice to have a pootle round the lanes with the ponies this weekend.
It has been very cold for the last couple of days but there was no rain so we had a lovely, relaxing time. I was very proud of Cookster for not batting an eyelid when a pheasant flew up very noisily right next to us – even though I jumped out of my skin!
Galahad also made me proud – we had to squeeze through a narrow gap between the hedge and a car with an open boot and the hazard warning lights flashing. He did hesitate but when I asked him to move forwards he did so. He rather wanted to rush through but managed to contain himself.
There are beginning to be a few signs that Christmas is coming.
Galahad may have wanted to eat the wreath!
