Almost there...

With Christmas almost here I proudly finished off the last bits of wrapping this weekend. What a lovely feeling to have everyone's pretty parcels all finished, gleaming under our tree. This weekend saw
us celebrate with our great friends B & A who have just purchased their first house. We drank wine, ate pizza and laughed lots
us relax with a delicious MrB-cooked Sunday roast while watching Roman Polanski's Oliver Twist - it's superb
me ride for 2 hours in the pale winter countryside yesterday.

I found out that the horse I normally ride, Murphy, has semi-retired as he can't cope with walk/trot/canter hacks any longer. I feel sad about not being able to ride him again, he's the most lovely gentle giant who I really bonded with. Hopefully next year I'll find another horse who I share such a bond with.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends and have got everything prepared for this exciting week coming up!


  1. You are way ahead of me! I haven't started wrapping yet! I gave you an award on my blog! :)

  2. I have 2 more presents to wrap and I am DONE (I ran out of tape)....Doesn't it feel great to sit back, relax and look at the pretty tree! Merry Christmas!!!

  3. I love riding horses too! I'm sure you will find another horse that you love to ride just as much. Merry Christmas!

  4. Sounds like such a nice weekend. I've never seen Oliver Twist--will be adding it to my netflix immediately

  5. I love riding, and I need to get back into it. It is simultaneously energizing and relaxing - what yoga is SUPPOSED to be, when your teacher is not Yarles, heehee! Merry Christmas!

  6. I got all of my wrapping done tonight. I'm sorry to hear about your favorite horse and I sure hope you do find another one to befriend. {HUGS}
