We found an old manor house on one of days out in Kent; it was very small and felt very peaceful in the heat of an August day. I liked the misty glass in the leaded windows and the glimpse of red amongst the green foliage.The summer seems so far away now but we are having a beautiful autumn so far.
WHAT a week; it was Wirral Libraries' BookFest and I worked a lot of extra hours. Every event seemed to go pretty well, though. I got to take quite a lot of photos which I haven't had a chance to process yet. The week was full of challenges but I really enjoyed most of it; it was fun! i have been very short of time: i have been visiting blogs and reading all your posts even though I may not always have commented.
Phil's mum is recovering after her big operation but prayers and positive thoughts are still needed. She is being really brave. When I see her smile I know I would not be so cheerful under the same circumstances.
Oh dear, I had a nasty shock today. There was an AWFUL photo of me in the local paper! A couple of weeks ago RDA held the world's biggest riding lessoon to celebrate its 40th anniversary and our group at Foxes took part. Well, there was a reporter there and she got a photo of me leading Candy and I look terrible; tatty hair, baggy t-shirt billowing over the coat tied round my hips, double chins, the LOT! The sort of photo that people stick on the fridge to put them off eating! I was mortified! But at least our rider, ally , looks fab. Ally could hardly sit up when she started last term and now she has great balance. It's so encouraging to see her enjoying her riding and getting better each week. RDA is one of the best parts of my week - my life! I'm so lucky to get to do it!
We have had three enquiries for weddings in the past week. It's funny how you can have nothing for ages and then three come along at once!
