A change is as good as a……..

So I think we are all in agreement now that Autumn is here. The shops are full of new hats and scarfs, and my favourite the fingerless, mitteny gloves. 

So how else to celebrate then by wrapping up and heading out 

The daily dog walk has quickly becoming my favourite thing, especially now my puppy is getting better at being of the lead. This means we can head of into the woods.  

    
    
 
Sometimes it just all comes together, cool weather, sun shining and playful puppy. 
Then on Saturday my most favourite of things…….. Firework display. The musical firework championships were on in Southport so we bundled into the car and down to the beach we go. 

The display was brilliant and even a firework in the shape of a heart, but I didn’t manage to catch it (sad face)

Oh but I did manage to wear my new hat, gloves and scarf
   
   
Happy Autumn 

Horsing around

Last week i was offered a chance to go horse riding by a friend. now i have no aversion to riding, a lot of my friends are very horsey but its just not something i have ever really been into.

we used to do little hacks, led by others when i was younger on holiday but that was always a once a year kind of deal.

i have other friends these days who are into jumping and showing, but its all a little alien to me.

any who i digress, last Saturday we headed of to a local centre and it was time to ride!

now as a larger person i have been steering clear of this activity as i think it is a little unfair on the animal to carry such a load but after my Bootcamp experience i thought it might be a little less straining on the animal.

we had a little lesson first on walking, turning and even a little trot, and more importantly getting the horse to stop

i was given a gorgeous horse called Tickle to ride

as you can see me and the horse had matching asses so i felt right at home

not saying that I’m suddenly going to join the jodhpurs wearing crew but i did enjoy it and may return for more
