Yeah Dove had coat on for the journey & whilst outside but not when she was in the ring. I was fairly pleased with a 4th, as she is not everyone's cup of soup.
Not been much on tele this after/evening. Rubbish for a Satuday, I suppose Christmas took all good programmes!!! Just finished watching Dad's Army. Strange how a programme that is 36 years old can make you laugh.

Sue I bet it was freezing on that horse,do you wear thermals on that horse ?

2 of Mine used to ask for a horse when they were little, so we paid for riding lessons they both gave up after about 6 lessons, but I can't say that I encouraged them too much, horses are alot of time and expense.

I had ponies when I was young but then we did live on a farm, so to be expected. They certainly are not cheap to have. Good idea to have lessons first just to see if it's what they really want.


GRMarilyn Report 3 Jan 2009 20:40


You gotta look after them as well...

Don't think a 7yr old is capable ...her mother certainly is not ..of father.come to that .
So its another 10yrs to wait I that time she will change her mind for a CAR ...LOL

Hi everyone, thought I would come and tell you what Marilyn and I both said to recognise each other lol I told her I would be wearing something purple, of course, and my height and weight and that I had a blonde bob, she replied in similar vein that she also had a blonde bob and needed to do her roots, (letting the cat out of the bag here lol) and that she would be wearing red leather gloves. Well I replied that I too needed my roots doing so we would be two of a kind, also warned her I might be late but would be there! Then I did run late at home and rang her family to pass on a message so she didn't leave before I got to Bhs. I walked past the coffee shop window and saw someone with red gloves, she sat there wearing them and I waggled my purple scarf at her through the window lol
I think we hit if off, I know I talked a lot and Marilyn got a few words in bless her and before we knew it her minder was there, poor chap waiting outside in the cold!
Was lovely to meet Marilyn, a really nice person, very attractive and smart and she did take the gloves off to drink her coffee! Hope next time you come back to Norwich we can do it again and this time I can drive you home or make sure you get on the right bus, will give you a note for the driver so he knows where to set you off lol
Have a lovely childfree holiday Marilyn and see you on here later this month. Thanks for meeting me and putting up with my yacking.

Hi Shelly, I think I talked a bit too much, poor Marilyn hardly got a word in edgeways lol

She was so nice tho, didn't feel like I was with a person who had been almost a stranger at first, felt as if we had known each other ages. It was fun and we didn't talk about anyone in particular, well not in a nasty way, did anyone's ears burn lol?

I must go to bed, I am really tired now, night night Shelly and all,
catch you later,
