Husband working away, daughter at Uni. So I wasn't expecting anything for Valentines Day.

Then this arrived. Such a lovely surprise and really made my day , knowing they were all thinking about me.
It was from my husband , daughter and son.

The flowers were all wrapped in red and green tissue paper and it came with a card and a box of flower chocolates. JUST PERFECT.

                                               The chocolates did not last long.

                                  The flowers were a mix of pinks, reds and oranges.

                                                   So pretty.

                                                   Lovely for my blue vase.

I adore flowers and if I could afford it, I would have them all around the house everyday.

                                    A perfect present for me.  Thank you.

I am so pleased the weather has changed for the better.
It has been a battle to fight through the mud with all the rain and keep my three horses dry and fed.

                                          Shadow loving his Hay.

Each week I have been making more new paddocks to keep moving them around. Out of the mud and onto new grass. But I have still needed to buy in a lot of hay for them. A costly few months.

But as with all people who own animals, you spend a lot of time and energy, and money to keep them well.
And happy.

                                                 Star looking Muddy.
                                       (Constant battle to keep them clean)

I am lucky, that I have only two Ponies and a Shetland and my fields are greater than their need.

                                                Willow enjoying a munch.

I have spent a fortune on new posts and wiring. And I still have to replace more posts that have rotted
due to the weather conditions.  All this work is keeping me fit at least. No gym needed for me.

I have come home a few times looking like a mud monster. (Sorry no pics!) , when I have fallen over, because my boots just got stuck  in the mud!!!!!!

So pleased weather has changed for the better and I can now enjoy my babies in the sun.
