Apachie - just checking in that things are ok??!!?
This thread seems to have died down - whats happening with everybody?
I'm still flat out. Its 3 years this past week since I was last home... feeling incredibly homesick :( I'd give darn near anything to be getting on a plane at the moment! Its frustrating working so many endless hours and still not being able to afford the "luxury" to visit my family and friends... none of which have met my 2yo and they have only met my 6yo once. *giant sigh*
This week our washing machine packed it in.. so any extra cash had to go to buy another one - if its not one thing going wrong, it's something else eh?!
DD's bestie at school got a new horse over the summer. The child came down and rode our pony once, the childs instructor had built the child up with praise and they think the world of her. She couldn't control ol nod AT ALL. I told the mother if they were going that route, to get something with miles on the clock and plenty done. They have now bought the child (who is also 6) a 4yo (broke for 3 months) 14.2hh pony. The instructor, who I had negative things about before, found the pony for her (and by the pricetag I'm certain turned a very nice profit). I'm somewhat frustrated that ANY instructor would think a 4yo suitable for a child with no experience bar school horses.
