Today was a BAD day

Today I drove to see the new horse that Dan wants being vetted. The vetting costs £250, but it needs to be done to make sure there's nothing wrong with the horse. The horse ' Hazel' failed the vetting as she has a splint bone growth. This may settle down, but it may not, and as it stands today I am not prepared to buy the horse if it's 'broken'.

Before I got there I was desperate to visit the little girl's room, but being a countryside kind of girl, I decided to have a countryside 'wee'. This usually involves squatting down behind the car in the corner of a field, or more commonly, in your horse's trailer. Today I attempted this and got very badly stung on my peachies by horrible stinging nettles...OUCH..it is really sore.

If those two things alone weren't bad enough, on the way home driving down the M4 I had a tyre blow out. Fortunately I was driving through roadworks at the time I was only doing 50mph, but I could have been killed. The very nice man from the RAC was with me within 10 minutes (woman alone!) and changed the wheel. So I finally made it home safely.

Bad things come in threes - so hopefully we're all done for today!

  1. What happened to all this independent woman "I've got my own drill" crap you have been spouting for the last 15 years?

    When it comes to the crunch you have to get a man to change a wheel.

  3. yes, but it was the Range Rover - and I don't think I could have lifted the wheel off - it's very large!!! and just because I can do it doesn't mean I should!!! after all, what are men for?
