Had the first and probably last hack of the year today in glorious sunshine.
Having a ride today has reminded me of how much I love horse riding, especially in the english countryside, pockets of snow still lying around, signs of spring everywhere and beautiful sunshine. Had a couple of lengthy trots and a couple of slightly out of control canters and then a couple of controlled canters, hadn’t ridden Pablo much so was great to practice some horsey skills on him (I’m in the middle), Julia on Billy on right and Sophie on her pony Lucky. Back to Portugal tomorrow and hopefully more farmy pictures on Monday….
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us

what happened when
time wasting social media
- Poppies, tanks and burnt trees, waiting for my friend in the first of the sun for ages, lots of memories of waiting at this station for friends and family, when hopes and dreams were still fresh, hard not to reminisce when everything has changed #portugal #newlife #oldfriends #hopesanddreams #springiscoming #poppies
