He was absolutely FURIOUS - he's such a lovely, easygoing, demonstrative cat that it was all the more powerful when he Refused To Purr Or Even Look At You.
The reason for this indignity was he had got himself covered in saddle soap. I brought one of my saddles home to clean and somehow he managed to get saddle soap suds on him which had set hard. Of course he then had to have a shampoo to get them off in case he licked it and made himself sick.
What have you been up to this week? It's been half term but as the boys are 11 and 13 they are no trouble at all (apart from arguing when we tell them to come off the PC/xBox and Do Something Else of course).
I painted a chest of drawers on Monday - duck egg this time:
We didn't do anything special on Valentines Day - no money :0( - we did exchange cards:
I made Mr G's card on my sewing machine!!
Mr G bought me a pink iPad cover and I treated us to a Chinese takeaway but we had that on Saturday as that's our "naughty" food day.
Yesterday I went to see my friend Ashley & her daughter Rose from Country Rose - we had a lovely lunch and a natter and today when I was looking at my phone I had to chuckle when I found this:
Bless!! Rose had taken a picture of herself when she played with my phone as her Mum and I nattered!!
Today I rode my horse (well one of my horses) for the first time in a year. For one reason or another I had/have kind of lost my horsey mojo and hadn't ridden but I now have a friend who rides my other horse so I was persuaded to go too.
I'm really glad I went even though I was nervous, King was a bit joggy (I bounced a few calories off I think!!) and we had an altercation with some cyclists - I'll be controversial here and say I dislike cyclists, not so much the regular commuters or people off to the shops but the be-lycra'd ones on bikes that cost more than your car.
Two of these whizzed past my horse scaring him and causing him to jump which scared us both and then one of them had the nerve to have a go at me and my friend!! Bloomin' outrageous!!
What people forget is if it weren't for horses we'd still be in the dark ages (they would never have been carriages, travel beyond a few miles, no ploughing, no mail coaches, etc, etc, etc).
I'll get off my soapbox now!!
Hope you're all having a nice half term....
