Lol, celeste. I never knew it wasn't common until i went to college. I've been microwaving my ice cream since I was a little kid. I just zap it long enough to soften it.

I confess I'm still watching the foal camera even though my mare already had the foal.

I confess I've given my husband more shakes than I've drank because they are never thick enough and I hate milk, yuck!

I confess I've melted ice cream completely to turn it in to "cream" for strawberries.

I confess to have just read all 27 pages of this thread.... Mostly without my glasses (bad, now have headache and sore "squinty" eyes), also while I should be in bed.

I confess that I am sleeping on the couch tonight, purely because it is warmer in here than it is out in my room in the shed... Booo.

I confess that I am multi-tasking, I am reading Stans blog.

I also have to have music playing with the volume on an even number.... I sit in the passenger seat of mums car and watch with evil eyes when she turns the volume up or down, because she doesn't care.

Toilet paper has to unroll over the top, not hanging down on the wall side.

I now have two navel piercings, and only my BF and my mum know about it, I've been keeping the new one secret from everybody else.

I confess to love heights..... But I can't handle them well. I get dizzy and uncoordinated, everything kind of sways in front of me.. Vertigo -_-

I should not be riding.... I have done something (still waiting for results) to my right arm. I fell backwards on concrete, landing fully on that hand trying to protect my left shoulder from being injured (just can't win) and they think I may have wrecked either ligaments/tendons/muscles or a combo of the three, from shoulder down, therefore I have no clearance to ride.... But I still am.
I am also right handed and have trouble writing for anything longer than a few sentences due to a lack of control of my thumb and wrist.

Oh, and Foxhunter... Page 16, post #158... Where have I seen that written before? I have seen that written before somewhere I'm sure! Minus the microwave part.

That's all for now, except I confess to having yet another winter rug on it's way to me right now... Because I needed another one for my collection. And I also have a saddle blanket making its way over from Australia... Because I needed another one of them too... Ok, I confess to being a gear addict, do they have therapy groups for that?

Load of old tosh!!! Of course I'm fitter than Stan. Just because I sat on a rock not only to savour the view, watch the dogs and nature I was also contemplating mt navel. To get to where I was took about 30 mins sharp walking, I then went down to the beach and walking back up always takes twice as long because of the steep terrain. When it is dry the clay is crumbling so it is three steps forward and two back. If wet it is almost impossible to get back up unless on your hands and knees! No way could a horse get up and down the trails there!

As we are actually having a summer in the UK and it is (for us) hot and humid, I try to walk the dogs early a.m. (5 - 6) and late evening. Not always possible as Mum is feeling groggy in the heat and her mind wanders even more! The other morning I was just going out (5.15) when she decided to get up. I made her a cup of tea and she remarked that she had been awake since 7 a.m.
I pointed out to her that it was only 5.30 -she just laughed and said she was going bonkers. Really the only thing that is still working well with her is her sense of humour.

Hill country, hell I live on the top of a hill and the sand dunes go for 60 miles, which is the length of the beach I live by. And as for it being to steep for the horses, Foxy If the horses can't get arond the terrain here we carry them home as a last parting gesture. And I dont sit and ponder mt navel, to much running around to do chasing the little bunnies with the dog and keeping out of the way of the horse when he gets a little pushy trying to get past me to get to the bunnies first. Then we walk the 2 miles up hill to home.

I confess I am by far fitter than Foxy and here is a couple of photos to show the area. Theses are the small hills and dunes.

Given that photos never capture the true perspective of a hill, that terrain is probably steeper than it appears.
The area I was mentioning is sheer in many places. To get back up from the beach you need to haul yourself up with a rope that is tied there. The whole area is ever changing as the cliffs slip into the sea. You couldn't get a horse down to the beach and if you did jump it off the cliff and it survived then it would have to swim to get to where it could get back to safe going!
I cannot post pictures from third iPad I do have some of the area, next time I go there I will take new pictures and when I have my PC set up, will show you what I mean.

I do not want a friend of mine using my horses - but I let her use him anyways.

The horse my friend is using - this will be his last year for 4-h and he will not be able to do barrel racing. If my friend wants to go higher than a trot, she will have to use my horse.

I'm not really sure if that is an actual confession - but I wanted to say it nonetheless.

I also confess that I yell at drivers if they don't have headlights on, blinkers, drive slow, reading while driving, texting while driving, etc.
