Monday Minstrel: Out of the Office!

This week I will be “out of the office”on holiday. My husband and I are going to London ,England. We are going because we love the city and it is the  city where our son makes his home. I lived in London in the 1970s during the IRA campaigns and I know that London has always been resilient.  It will be resilient now despite what has taken place on the weekend.  So we will go and we will have a wonderful time in this great city and we will not bow to fear or intimidation!

While I am away Biasini will be ridden and schooled by my coach Belinda Trussell and taken for some forest hacks by her assistant Lynsey Rowan. Lynsey might also see if he would enjoy a small jump over the occasional log on the forest trails!

I may not be keeping to my regular blog posting schedule while I am away but I will be posting.  There may be something about this.



And I am hoping there will also be a post about more of things like this.


And this…


I also hope to get back to see this friend as well.


And I will be going to find this.
