Well what have I done today the shorter answer is not a lot well it didn't seem like a lot but geez I'm knackered today, last night I went to sleep between 3 and 3:30am I just couldn't get to sleep and me and my mum must have checked on little Brody a thousand times during the night to make sure that he was sleeping well and sure enough he was doing. He slept from 6pm all the way through to 7:20am this morning! Clever Little guy - sleep while you can, I like the way he thinks. Then this Morning I woke up at 10:30 I know late but the later the better is my thoughts! When I woke up I spent some time playing with Brody and then we shared some Pringles (he loves them almost as much as me ;). After that we got him ready for his lunch and I fed him his baby food today it was 'Fruity Chicken Casserole' and then it was 'rice pudding' we picked today not him, unlike yesterday when he decided. (We put them in front of them and he picked). We then went to mother-care world and got him one of the rubber rings that have the support in the middle for him as he is only 8 months old (nearly 9). And went to Belper Swimming Pool after I spent nearly 30 minutes blowing up his seat ring thing (no idea what it's proper name is).
Now on to the horse part, after this we came home and I asked my dad if I would be able to watch the Equestrian Part of the Olympics, it was still Dressage all day unfortunately I was getting excited for the Cross Country but we have been told that it will start tomorrow from 12:30. That WILL be on my T.V. hopefully in the sitting room but I don't know! At the minute in the Team Eventing - 1st Place is Germany, 2nd Place is Team Australia, and 3rd Place is TEAM GREAT BRITAIN! WOOP WOOP! As you can tell when it comes to riding I am a huge supporter of my country, and also can not wait to see Carl Hester and Charlotte in the Team Dressage on Thursday and Friday. Now for the results of Team GB. 12th Place - MARY KING. 14th Place - Kristina Cook. Joint 17th Place - William Fox-Pitt. Joint 24th Place - Zara Phillips. Finally in Joint 39th Place - Nicola Wilson.
Until Next Time

Hey Guys if you head over to my page 'Photo Diary', and take a look at the new pictures as I started my blog entry for yesterday I have added two pictures at the same time for the 28th and 29th of July, I hope you like the pictures and if there is anything else you want to see on my blog LET ME KNOW :) xx
First of all i would like to say sorry to you all for not updating as frequently as I was doing I know i haven't been on a while, but do have a good reason.
Well the past week has been rather hectic but I've decided to sit down with my laptop and update you all which could take quite a while. Back in April I started being extremely sick and this lasted for about 12 days, during which I had two anti-sickness injections and ever since then I've had good days and bad days where i start being sick and then the next day i will be fine again. Well not the monday just gone but two mondays before that I started being sick again! On the Thursday of that week I got put on a tablet called Nefapam, which unfortunately made things worse, is it caused me to not be able to sleep, and also to get horrible pins and needles all up and down my legs and arms. This lasted up until Sunday morning where my mum rang the out of hours doctors and I went to the walk-in clinic where all they told me to do was to stop the Nefapam and start back on tramadol while this solved the pins and needles it did not solve the pain and through out the day the pain increased to the point where mum rang them again and was told that she needed to have me in a&e and seen within an hour. In a&e they did blood tests (hate them!) and I was told by one doctor that they had all come back clear. The next day I went to my gp like we had been told to, who told me that the doctor in a&e had lied and that my liver function had come back negative, and my liver was extremely enlarged so i needed more blood tests and my consultant got me an emergency ultra sound scan, so i had both these done the scan came back looking clear! Tuesday the pain continued and I stayed at home. Wednesday the pain was getting worse so my mum spoke to my consultant who said that it was time to admit me, from wednesday up until the monday just gone i was in hospital on the childrens ward. During that time i had more blood tests (I might as well be a pin cushion with the amount of needles ive had in me) and a chest x-ray which came back normal, but my consultant changed around my tablets and got me on a mixture that seemed to stop me being sick and ease off the pain. Yesterday I just stayed at home and relaxed and just spent time resting. I also got a wacom bamboo graphics tablet to use with my art (below are two pictures i coloured in using it) and then today Jordan came to see me and keep me company like he had in hospital to try and distract me from the pain a bit which was really nice.
Unfortunately because of being in hospital and being ill i havent got any riding updates to give you :( I haven't even seen any of the horses since I started being sick, but I am hoping that if my liver settles down that ill be back at broomfield in no time but unfortunately it could take up to 2 months for my liver to settle down! However I will keep posting and tell you about riding lessons that I have had in the past and experiences ive had with horses over the years.
okay so this is just a quick one while its the break in Geordie Shore tomorrow i will update you all fully, sorry that I have not updated in a while unfortunately I have spent the past week in hospital with stomach pains, and have come home with a whole load of medication, while tell you all more about that tomorrow
unfortunately this means that I have not been able to see Gatsby but I am hoping to be back riding again soon and then I will have even more to tell you all :)

Sorry that it has taken so long to post something not had the best week, with being ill the past two days and spending all day in a&e with my sister, who ended up getting that fed up that she told the doctor, what she wanted the doctor said 'we will see' and then came back with a prescription for them, can tell you that was a nightmare, when the two of us hate dealing with hospitals! But the plus side was that I got to see my big sister, who I adore spending time with and also that I got to see my cute little nephew, who is one of the best things around, hes so funny to watch and has some really funny faces, and he can say my name! which is always a good thing.
So i've not done much riding but I have been doing a lot of looking on line and have fallen in love with a new brand of riding clothes that I have got two hoodies from thats called, 'Rydale'. Don't know if anyone's got any opinions or comments on 'Rydale' Riders clothes but if you have let me know what you think of it, and feel free to suggest any other makes that you think are worth looking at.
Okay moving on to the picture of today, with not being well I haven't had time to put up a new picture on my 'Photo Diary' page well today I am going to be putting up a picture that I haven't taken but is one of my all time favourite pictures, and was taken on my lesson on saturday. let me know what you think guys :)
Hoping to be back up at broomfield this week if i am feeling better.

okay so yesterday was my last official riding lesson of the year as the college has now ended and I was riding Gatsby! I should have been riding Arthur but after having a mental breakdown at the thought of jumping him lauren suggested that I rode Gatsby. Gemma didnt tell us until we were on that we would be doing cross country practice all though this was indoor, this involved us learning how to do a cross country canter and how to take the jumps as a stride not preparing for them and then making it a individually movement.
So to start with Gatsby seemed quite lazy, there was nothing overly active about him, but then as the lesson moved on and the more transitions that we did the more awake he became, we did a jump that was a corner that was basically three wings, and three poles, two wings on one side and one on the other side, and then the three of them spread out making them look effectively look like a spread. We then also did a normal jump but with the plastic jump block things underneath the jump if that makes sense? and then we had a third and final jump that was just two fillers on the ground, and you had to make sure the horse didnt run out, gatsby thought about it but i am pleased to say that he didnt do it!
eventually we got in to the swing of things and i adored it, though i do plan at somepoint to try doing this again as it was deffo fun, my mum took some amazing pictures that i will share with all you guys :), if there was one thing i learnt from that lesson it was that when i loose my nerves it is possible for me to jump him well, and do my thing. I will write more about this tomorow
