Monday again!  It does come round quickly!!!  DH and I were really busy again over the weekend with the swimming sessions.  The Friday night one is two hours and one of the parents has been going to the Chinese takeaway across the road and getting chips for the swimmers for when they come out,  I think it is the only thing keeping them going on a Friday night!

We were also at swimming on Saturday morning and when we got back home doing all the jobs I didn’t get done in the week!!!  It was a manic day and then had to go to the swimming session on Saturday evening too!  By the time we got home I was shattered.

Sunday Girlfriend was competing with Penny.  It was a lovely day and it was so nice to be outside at an event and not to have to wear a face mask!!!  Here are a few pictures of the day.  

First session waiting to compete.

Back having completed a double clear round.

Second session, actually on the round.

Over the Jumps!

Fast around the jumps and another double clear!

Overall they came third and fourth which as it is only Penny’s fourth event was really good.  They are competing again next week.  It now looks like we are going to be horse people as well as swimming people!!!!

The weather is beginning to turn here and although they have promised some warm weather hopefully at the end of this week, you can feel that Autumn is starting to make itself known with a chill in the air in the evening and early mornings!

You know I was talking about Christmas?  Well when I was doing my grocery shopping at the weekend there were mince pies, Christmas puddings and cakes and other Christmas goodies in the bakery aisle!!!  It is September 7th people!!!  Is it going to be like this from now until Christmas?  Or is it because they think everyone has had such a bad year that we all want to get into the Christmas spirit now?  Literally or figuratively?!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are having a good Monday?

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    What fun to go to a horse event! I’ve only ever seen them on TV. We are seeing Halloween candy here in the stores. I don’t go anywhere besides the grocery store so I wouldn’t know about other stores. I don’t want autumn to go by too quickly. It’s my favorite season.

    I can’t imagine jumping a horse with only an English saddle!!! Those definitely don’t feel secure to me!!! I tried it once around an arena and decided I love my heavy Western saddle!!! I hope I can come and see girlfriend compete sometime and maybe she can give me pointers on how to ride with an English saddle! Since you are to be stopping the swimming by the end of this year, you are just transitioning to horse people!! Outside is so much nicer!!! Penny is a beauty!
