Oh my goodness!
I’ve been feeling extremely smug all day. I was able to ignore the fact that my fingers went purple with cold and continue humming away, because my feet stayed so very beautifully warm all day. I love my new boots. Oh the joy that comes from being able to feel one’s feet. I’ll grant you, it’s a strange thing to be happy about, but it is a seriously amazing feeling. Pun absolutely intended!
I discovered today that Fox likes banana. So did he, I think. Apart from that, I did a fair bit of real work. Lunged two horses as well. Midge was a star, although she did take off a little bit quick at first which meant I was crazy dizzy by the end. I actually stumbled over myself when I went to changed the line over and nearly fell into her. Awkward. Fortunately I don’t think anyone was watching…
I got some lovely transitions from her though. Really lovely. Later on I also lunged Lucky who was significantly less quick off the mark. In fact, he wasn’t keen to move at all. I ended up growling away at him, trying to get him going forward. He moved in the end and I eventually got some really nice trot out of him. When he stretched into the side reins and worked in a shape, he looked quite impressive. I was slightly surprised to see him looking so nice actually, as he’s a chunky cob; nothing beautiful. But he looked good.
I’ve been thinking today about various aspects of my personality. I think it’s probably because a part of my mind is constantly trying to work out what animal I am. But I realised today that I am becoming less apologetic as a person. I used to apologise for everything, to the point that I actually got told off for it by Kelly. More than once. “MEGAN STOP APOLOGISING” … “Sorry Kelly” …oops.
I don’t apologise so much these days. At least, not for things that I’m not actually sorry for. And I sure as hell won’t apologise for who I am or what I can do. Whereas I probably would have done not that long ago. Screw that.
I’m not apologising for having warm feet when no-one else does either. Muaha. Cozy toesies. Win for me.
