Getting ready to go home :)

Am trying to get ready for the next few days. Tomorrow will be busy as we're moving Phoebe to her new home. The lorry man is coming at noon to collect her and prior to that I have to have loaded all her gear onto my tonka toys truck and got her ready for the journey - navy blue travel rug and burgundy leg bandages (with gamgee underneath) - I only hope she loads okay - I can be doing without a fight on the lorry ramp with a huge stressed horse - if we do have a fight - she will win it!!! Usually she's okay to load onto a lorry - it's trailers that are the problem.

When we arrive at the new yard I will then have to unload and unpack all her kit - she has so much kit - equipment for every possible occasion. More rugs than a chinese carpet shop too!!!  Once she's settled I will then  have to take the truck for cleaning as it will be scruffy and full of hay and shavings. 

Then - tomorrow later on I have to start preparing for my weekend up t'north. Ironing clothes and making lists - wrapping gifts - and making a plan of Saturday as I have so many people to see in one day. (About 12 at the last count) The whole day will have to run like a military operation or I simply won't be able to see all the friends I would like to see - really I could do with a whole week in Sheffield. I am really looking forward to staying with Helen and Andrew on Saturday night as we always laugh loads when we are together. Often we play cards and get very drunk too!!!   Whenever I go home I am never ready to come back down South because I have never had enough time with all the people up there that I love.  

Also when I pack to go home I always get in a bit of a 'kerfuffle'  and forget something really important - like my purse - or my clean knickers...so I think I should make a list :) Last time I went home I put my mobile phone in the boot of the car (by accident) got stuck in a six hour traffic jam (friday night) and had to keep stopping at every motorway services to call my Mum from a call box and tell her not to put the chips on yet!! (My Mum always makes me home-made chips when I go to her house because I love them so much and can very rarely be bothered to make them just for myself!) I finally found my phone when  I was unpacking in Sheffield later that night!!!

I am really really really really looking forward to this weekend. xx
