Ahh I see. Well I wish you luck with finding more work. I wish I could just afford to be a housewife haha I could live with that, especially since I only have fur babies right now.

Poppy - I totally agree! My current job will easily fund my horse its just that its totally not my thing. Soon I have to go out installing solar panels for our sister company which means more hours less of a lunch break and all up less time with Nyx. So I think ill tell them to stick it on that one.
But Yeh that's why im hoping to keep doing my full time job next year while also studieng for the career I want. :)

Good luck. It's not fun, but if you can manage your time well, it's well worth it. I had 3 part time jobs the last year I was in college so that I could afford to live in an apartment instead of the crappy dorms. But it paid off down the road. Just don't forget to take a break once in a while. Wouldn't want you getting stressed out and losing your mind.

this was pages ago already, but... everybody has such CUTE puppies!!! I love dogs. Well, I'm kind of afraid of strange dogs, but I love my own. (I was bit by a beagle when I was a kid... not a fan of beagles anymore. :P)

apparently, yes they do! Gave me a pretty big bruise even through my jeans! I was only six or so at the time.

I want to ride...

Now that I've got a job I want to organise to move Rosie to the other agistment place, but I feel I should wait to make sure my job is alright in the long term. But I'm not very patient

I was once bitten by my grandparents German Shepherd and since then I really don't like those dogs. I would never get one and don't touch them.

I have heard labs bite more than most other breeds.

So just an FYI for everyone, do NOT be fooled by the easy change gullet system in Wintecs. I just changed mine for the first time and what a pain. Given I suppose it could be harder but definitely not as smooth and easy as their stupid videos make it look. And it takes some muscle too.
