The past two days have been even quieter. Monday I didn't do a lot, jack and I are working on our car at the moment, so we spent a good two hours tinting the windows while the dogs were running around in my mums garden. It took ages to get the back window right, and it's still not perfect but for a first time trying it I don't think it was that bad either, now all we have left to do is the two front windows (not the windscreen). We then came back to the flat, where Jack chilled out on the playstation and my body decided that I needed some sleep, so I spent about 4 hours sleeping. I saw Magic, and gave him a good brush. He's turning in to a really fluffy baby at the moment, I love this time of the year he goes LOADS darker and becomes super fluffy and cuddly! I also gave Ghost a brush, as his owner is still injured and unable to see him so I figured it would be nice to give him some love and attention.
Today has been another day where I have done the square root of nothing! I got up this morning and went with Jack to drop Josh off for work, we then went straight on to the hospital for Jack's weekly appointment, that he has to go to ever since he got his burns (not sure if I explained what happened, but if I didn't then that's just a post for another day). I only had an hours sleep last night, so i opted for curling up in the car with Jeremy Kyle and attempting to get a little bit more sleep. Then we came back to the flat where we spent the afternoon chilling out with the dogs. Luckily since my ranty post the other day I've had no more digging in the flat. It was then time to go get Josh and chill out on the play station! It was a nice quiet day. Unfortunately I didn't see Magic as I was not feeling myself at all, I was really sick after we got back from Jack's hospital appointment. Then a couple of hours later I felt really hungry so tried to have something to eat, and ended up being sick again, so I'm not sure if it's a bug that's going around or what.
I'm now curled up in bed, cuddling the dogs, watching the new Suicide Squad film. Not going to lie I have NO idea what the film is about, it's just background noise until I stop blogging and starting falling asleep. So on that note I will head off, I've not been able to catch up on peoples blogs for a while, so I'm going to make a start on that now.
Until Next Time

Well the past few days have been interesting to say the least. After our long walk with Magic on Thursday, we spent the day chilling out on Friday. We spent the morning playing games, and catching up on what was on T.V. before heading over to my mums with the dogs. While they spent a good few hours playing out in the garden, Jack and my mum made brownies, and I spoke to my dad for a bit. Before Jack and I then decided to fit our new speakers in our new car. It took us a while to do it but we managed it in the end. We then came home and chilled out, while Jack started playing our new game Mafia 3 I spent some time watching T.V.
Saturday was another quiet day, I didn't see Magic today, as to be honest I was exhausted. He hadn't been in and he didn't need anything doing to his stable (I did check) so I left him out in the field with his friends for a few days. Today's been another quiet day, that is until I got back to the flat. Now as you'll know from the post that I wrote about three days ago, we have two dogs. One who's a bit older and one who is a baby and is still learning. Now if anyone has some suggestions of how to sort this dog out that would be greatly appreciated. Some days he's great, he'll ask to go out when he needs to, he'll chill out, he doesn't chew anything and is just a generally really nice dog. Then there is days like today.
We woke up this morning and both dogs went out. We went out and did what we needed to do, came back and decided it was another film day in bed, both the dogs curled up either on the bed with us or lay on the floor chilling out. Then before we needed to go out we let the dogs out again! Tidied the flat up and left with both the dogs chilling out on the bed. They both looked happy and relaxed that was until we got back. I walked in the flat to find Diesel is teething (I'm not really bothered about this I'll get him some toys to help with it), he's decided it's GREAT FUN to dig at the front door, no idea how to stop this so if anyone does have any ideas then please let me know? Because of the digging I asked him what he'd done and told him off, he then decided to pee in the flat all over a duvet. So if anyone has any ideas on how to stop a dog digging that's a puppy and only does it when I'm NOT here that would be greatly appreciated.
I've got lots of plans for Magic over the next week, we're going to do some more work in the school, going back to doing Parelli but also hopefully start to get him trotting in hand. I don't want him to do huge amounts of trotting, just want him to be able to trot when asked to as he's still not great at this he's getting there but he's not perfect. He's going to get lots of fuss and attention and a really good groom tomorrow. I'm also hoping to get him booked in to have his teeth checked out soon as this is something that he hasn't had done yet. Well slowly get there, but mostly I just want to have fun with him. If that means we spend some days just chilling in the field together than that's what we will do, if it means we go on long walks that's what we will do, it all just depends on what each day brings.
As for tomorrow i'll be heading over to my mums in the morning to do some jobs, and possibly be taking the dogs with me again for them to have another run around. But for now i'm going to curl up, chill out, look through some of my online university work and research how to get Diesel to stop digging.
Until Next Time

Well I tried writing this blog post yesterday, and then today I ended up deleting everything. It's been that long since I've blogged that I don't think I'd be able to catch you all up on everything in just one post. So I'm going to go about it differently and start off by letting you know what I've been up to recently and then I'll just fill in the gaps as I go along. For those of you who don't have me on Facebook I've also had Magic in Derbyshire for a year now, while I've owned him since day one he's been all mine officially for just over a year and what a journey it's been.
So today I took Magic for a walk, I think we calculated that we walked between 3 miles and 4 miles. This was the first time that I had taken Magic out in ages due to his lameness issues which are now all resolved. Which also enabled us to give him his second proper trim for his hooves. The farrier was really good with him, I wasn't actually there as I'd booked to have Magic's feet done at the same time as my Yard Owners horses. So she looked after Magic and was there while he had his feet done, apparently he was a bit spooky for the front feet but soon settled down and was fine for the back feet. I'm hoping in time he'll really settle down and just be able to have them all done calmly. Unfortunately that just hasn't quite happened at the moment. But slowly we'll get there.
Anyway back to todays walk, we walked from my yard, to my mum and dads house where we stopped and had a break and Magic tried to cut my mum's grass. Back to the yard again. Jack followed us in the car with his hazards on because I was a bit wary of taking Magic out on his own after having such a long time off. But Magic was amazing and we only really had one problem but that was due to a bus! You'll probably all remember that Magic gets a little bit spooked by buses, well this bus driver was actually really amazing, he slowed down and waited for Magic to be calm and then pass, but unfortunately the sound of the bus just sent him a little bit over board and he had a very mild tantrum. When we got back to the yard I popped Magic in his stable for a bit to have some of his hay net and then have his hard feed and Lynn popped him out later for me.
So what else is new with me? Well i'm sure that you will all remember Casper my little rescue doggy, but I don't think any of you will know who Diesel is. Diesel is my other rescue puppy, he's about 6 months old now, (I've had him just over a month), staffordshire bull terrier x pit bull. He's like casper an extremely loving personality who just wants to have lots of fun, and most importantly Casper just loves having him around! Diesel and casper both love to go on long walks, and pretty much love going wherever we go, they take trips to the stables with me in the evening for runs in the field. They cuddle up in bed with me and keep me warm and most of all they're just really comforting to have. When i'm having a bad day and really don't feel well enough to get up to Magic the dogs keep me motivated to get up and do SOMETHING! Even if it's just a quick walk to where the shops are near me and back.
