Plus side: she didn't give us a wink-y face. THAT would have killed us even more??

I just feel so shy all of a sudden!

Okay so here's how it went down

I snuck with tail-between-legs into Subway. Most awkward experience ever because after I blurted out "This is my first time......here!" and proceeded to stumble my way through what I thought he'd like (I listened in on our conversations so I had some sort of idea)

Then I just... kind of walked over to his work area, knocked on the door and said "I came here in person to apologize. Here is my apology sandwich" and he seemed really amused with that fact. We talked things over and everything is A-OK now :)

He is still lovely man btw.. said he was giving me some space and wasn't pissed off with me or anything. But yeah... one word responses usually mean something isn't kosher.

But now he's all smiley which makes me equally as happy

Oh my favourite part was when he realized I made a "special trip to Subway" just for him which he vocalized that I won "brownie points" haha

Ahh so pleased it went well

Alright well, riding was challenging!

My legs were not having it, so I had to use a whip in the end. She was very challenging but at the end we got some beautiful work out of her once we were on the same page!

And I experienced my first steps of true sitting trot. My goodness my abs were BURNING and they are completely on fire today (the day after)

I'm so proud of where I'm at. I am no longer scared of cantering, though I do need to re-learn my leads and not lose my loose fluid self when I cue for canter (I was bunching up again but not from fear...from habit)

In two weeks is my birthday weekend. I had some plans thought out but looks like they aren't going to happen. So I may just go do them solo, lol.

Yes, birthday weekend buddy! Next year it's on though as I'll be in the states!

My plans were high tea with fancy older friends/colleagues, then white water rafting/glow worm cave exploring/belaying down said cave with a friend.. but they aren't interested in taking days from work off to come with.

So I have some coupons for river trail ride I haven't used, or I can take a horse bootcamp weekend at my usual riding spot.

*sigh* so many great opportunities and no one to share them with!

Yeah that's who I asked.... lol. He's all talk, no walk.

It's a blessing though because my family (usually up for doing nothing) wants to take me since they knew I was looking forward to it. And my friend who just moved to NZ may come too. Woo!

I AM SO CRAVING A RIDING LESSON RIGHT NOW

Oh my word, never have I been this edgy!!!!! What is going on!!!!!

So hi everyone, I've been busy and away and living life.

I managed to wrangle a coworker's spouse into coming riding with me. She's a beginner so it'll be walk and maybe some trot.. but hey that's a start!

Also got back from my trip. Aside from my parents and brother being completely uncool at some points, I had a blast! My friend from CO, that I haven't seen in 5 years, has moved over here for a bit!!

Needless to say we were peas in a pod. I was nervous how we'd get on but no worries here! I didn't know her all that well in the first place, but wow we get along so well! So we had a blast. Went to the famous Waitomo Glow Worm Caves and a bunch of other cool stuff.. did some cave climbing (rock climbing, abseiling, ziplining) for 4 hours!! It was amazing fun!

Lovely Man got a stern talking to for being Mr. Wishy Washy. Finally we're on the same page. I told him due to time I'm just looking for a friend, but that I do like him. He feels similarly I guess. He has invited me to his house (with his room mates... eek lol) to play video games and chill so I assume he feels similarly?? I have no idea.

Men. Boys. They need to say what they feel.

As for Sky, still doing fine and dandy hock-wise. But he did spook and my friend hurt herself (minorly but still!) so I'm kind of grumpy with his antics.. he knows better and I think sometimes he does what I do.. feed off of others around him and ends up over reacting instead of staying grounded.

As for me? Well I'm less depressed (yeah apparently THAT happened... didn't even notice until I went on holiday!) and extremely sore from caving. But I'm happy.. but feeling sick about getting things in order for my future. Mainly when I should depart New Zealand, which depends on many many factors. I would go on but I rather not become anymore nauseous about it!

Going to focus on saving all my energy for riding this weekend!!

Hope you're all well! Here is a picture of me inside the cave:
