Well this is the second day in a row that I have got to write on my blog, they say if you do something 30 times in a row it becomes a habit, so maybe if I write on here 30 days in a row then it will become a habit to.
So what have I done today? The main answer to that is not a lot, I didn't get a good nights sleep so was absolutely shattered when I woke up. We chilled out and watched T.V. for a while this morning then my mum came over and helped me to fix one set of my draws. I also finished doing the drying, packed up the rest of the extra clothes that I am not wearing at the moment.
We then went to see Magic and gave him his food and some fuss, he'd had a Duvet day because the weather was that horrible. So he had a nice big haynet and his tea. I then popped in to see my mum and dad for a little bit before coming home. Where I have since chilled out, watched T.V. and cooked tea for my partner and me.
I haven't got a lot to say today, I'm tired and had enough of listening to my boyfriends stupid party on the playstation.
Until Next Time

Well it has only been two days since I last posted, I'm definitely making more of an effort and even though it's nearly 11pm and I should probably be curled up in bed so that I actually get an earlier than normal night. Today's been a hectic day, it was supposed to be a quiet, but that didn't quiet work out. My mum did Magic this morning, like she does every morning, and he was very good for her. Then I woke up at around lunch time, after another night where I didn't go to sleep until about 3 or maybe even 4am.
When I woke up I chilled out on the playstation for a little bit, playing new games on the new tv, it's HUGE. After Jack and I had properly woken up we took the dogs for a walk, they were so funny to watch. Diesel loves to play with sticks and Casper loves to play with balls. So we took a foot ball and an old bat and the dogs played with that, it was hilarious watching them both on an end of the bat watching them both run together. We then bought them back to the flat, sticking of wet dog, soaking wet and muddy to hell.
We then went to B&M to get the dogs some dog food and some bits for the new flat. I got a 'Memories' photo frame, I love it, Jack's not a fan of photographs so he's not really bothered by it. I got a key holder in the shape of a key, I think it looks quite cool to be fair, it'll go in the kitchen and might be the final answer to me not losing my keys!
After this we went to see Magic, he's such a good boy, and his knee has gone down loads. It's still a little bit swollen but after a day out and about, moving around the swelling appears to have gone down loads. I'll keep an eye on it though. I gave him his food, gave him a fuss and then went to see my mum and uncle at my mums house for a little bit.
When we got him I decided it was time to get my butt in to gear. It's a week and two days until we move and intend to have everything organised and ready for the night before so that the day that we move we can go and get the keys, go get connor, then get everything packed up, and get everything moved in to the new flat. So today I mega cleaned the bathroom, so that I won't have to do it again. I sorted out the final bits that I can pack (things that were on top of cupboards) and then cleaned down the kitchen. So the only things that I really have left to do is sort out the cupboards that have got food in, sort out the fridge, move everything out of the flat and then hoover the floor. That sounds so simple when I write it like that but we all know that things never really go to plan!
I'm not sure what the plan is for tomorrow, probably sort Magic, walk the dogs and then chill out, but who knows what the day will bring.
On that note I'm off to let the dogs out, and watch Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
Until Next Time

I really want to keep writing my blog, I've had this blog for a long time and it's been a great outlet for how I'm feeling, for growing as a person, and for developing my knowledge as a horse owner/rider. But sometimes life just gets in the way! I want to blog, I want to sit down in an evening and chill out and write things on here but half the time by the time that I have done the jobs that I need to do and get on my laptop I feel exhausted, then the next day comes and the same thing happens. So while my blogging may not be consistent I do feel like I want to keep blogging and will keep taking every spare opportunity that i get to blog.
So life is good here, magic is great. He's had a bump to his knee, so his knee is quite swollen at the minute but we think we realised where all these bumps are coming from. For whatever reason Magic stumbles when he gets up, and finds it hard to get up some times, so then he knocks himself on walls, or doors or anything that is really in his way. So on Tuesday or it might have been wednesday we made Magic the bed of all beds, it is MASSIVE. My yard owner suggested putting a deep litter bed in for him, now you all know that I am not a fan of deep beds, I like nice, pretty, fluffy shavings beds. But she said I could have a big round bale of straw for £20. She said i probably wouldn't get it all in but I could put the extra in bags. Well Jack, being Jack, decided that he could put the WHOLE bale in and to be fair it did go in. So he's now got a very big, very nice comfy bed. Honestly I would happily sleep in it.
What else is new with me, i'm going to be moving flats on the 8th of March. Instead of being in a 1 room bed sit flat I'm going to be in a 2 bed room flat and I can not wait. I'm looking forward to having lots more room. I'm looking forward to decorating and getting a new flat, making it ours, making it not just a flat but an actual home, with all the mad little decoration things in it. I've got colour schemes for all the rooms all though I'm not sure what I think about the bathroom at the moment. I won't spoil the surprise but all I will say is that it's Jack's choice of colours.
On the note I'm now off to curl up in bed with my puppies, the perfect end to a good day is curling up with diesel and casper.
Until Next Time
Well it's been a while since I wrote on here, I keep meaning to get back in to blogging but it just doesn't happen, the most annoying part is that everyday I think about blogging, and that I need to write something and then something comes along. So what's been going on? Well, life has been quite hectic at the moment, things haven't been the best the past couple of weeks, but they are starting to kind of look up.
So I'll start with Magic, Magic is doing great! He's finally back out with the herd and he is loving every single moment of it. He goes out first thing in the morning and then some days I will bring him in early at anywhere between 1 and 2 and then other days he will stay out with the rest until between 3 and 4. I feel that he still needs to come in early so that he realises that he can come in on his own and that it's nothing to be stressed or worried about. He still gets walked in hand by my mum when she does him in the morning and by me when I do him in the evening. He loves being fussed and groomed and is back to being really good while he is eating again. He's showing constant signs of improvement and no signs of being in pain or discomfort anymore, he's much less arched over his back and standing much more square. He's growing in to a very polite, loving and gentle horse with a very soft eye.
What's next? I can't remember whether I told you guys about Arthur and Bella that I am looking after, I think that I did, but I am not 100% sure about this. Well after having nothing but problems with the horrible people that Nicki was renting the field from, tomorrow they will move to new grazing, where I am hoping that they will be much happier and enjoy it much more. While this week has been full of drama trying to deal with the people, I will be so glad once the ponies are moved and I know that they are safe and happier.
Casper and Diesel are doing great, they are also very loving and caring. While Diesel is more interested in spending the majority of his time either by my feet or just cm's apart from where I am. Casper is much more independent out of the two of them but he still enjoys coming for cuddles. Diesel can finally be walked without a lead on, as long as you have something to catch his attention with, the majority of the time a ball that he can play with. He's also finally learnt to 'wait' and to drop the ball until another ball is thrown for him.
I can't think of anything new and exciting to tell you guys, so on that note I'm going to head off and carry on watching the soaps. I'm also going to hope for no more snow!
Until Next Time,
Amber, Magic, Casper and Diesel.
