VALENTINES DAY. A SURPRISE IN THE POST.


















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.

HORSING AROUND.





















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.
