Morning all! Tea and ginger bics in the caravan with bush view. Much warmer night, and no more rain.

Good morning all. It's grey and quite cool today. You can feel that snow on the berg.

Start of another week. How did the weekend vanish so fast! I have to take my Mom to the doctor for her 6 monthly prescription today.

Wishing everyone a great Monday and week to come.

Morning All,

Was a good weekend....until Sat arvie.
During my riding lesson I fell off my 18-2h horse (just over 6 foot) and landed on my back.
Am in agony.
Am on a lot of painkillers and have somehow made it into work today :evil:

Also got my daughter 2 guinea pigs.
Her hamster had to be put down last week, and she didn't want to replace it with another one. She wanted something that would potentially live for a bit longer

OH no, Yoda. I do hope your back is okay. Have you been to check it out?

Jeanni, I'm very envious. I'm sure you'll have a great time. I wonder if you'll bump into the Hughs somewhere along the way.

Ouch Yoda! Been there, done that and the older we get, the harder we fall. Get better soon!
Off to Kruger just now - waiting for daughter and granddaughter and grandson to arrive here and then we'll be off!

Good morning everyone and thanks for the coffee and rusks Billy and for the gingers GEJ. :thumbs_up:

We had lovely rain yesterday and early hours of this morning. Sun coming out, but nevertheless cool.

So sorry to hear about the fall Yoda. Hope you get better soon. Back pain is really a challenge. :shock:

Hope you all have a great week and wonderful day today, whatever you have planned. I hope and pray for some rain up your way Mischief. :pray: :pray:

I have been riding for 1 1/2 years and I guess it had to happen
And it could have been a lot worse. Ads I was lying there, a hoof passed within a few mm of my face.
Just wish it would have been one of the smaller horrses that I ride.
After I got up, my instructor made me get back on. She said that if I didn't, I never will.
Enjoy your Kruger trip - am jealous! :mrgreen:

SJ, Mischief, thanks. I will give it a few days to ease, but if it doesn't, I will have to go to a dr. I think it's probably just bruising. If it was more serious, I probably wouldn't be able to walk?

TessaG, thanks.
