    Nice photos Alison.
    He looks a cheeky pony.
    BTW dogs take a lot less looking after than horses. I’ve had both, and
    I know which I would rather have

    A lot cheaper too I would imagine Ellie. Mind you, I'd have loved a horse or donkeys. Fabulous photo's though Alison, how did he learn to get the muzzle off?

    I won't be on much today I don't think, I am shattered after yesterday and have to be well to go back to the opticians tomorrow, so probably if I'm sensible (and that will be a first) it will be a day of rest.

    Yes cheaper too Susie.
    How did it go yesterday?
    I would be relaxing too today, you have to be ok to go to the opticians.
    Hope you are ok.

    Very interesting but unfortunately I was sitting for a long time on a very comfy sofa, but for me they cause terrible muscle problems because they are too big and full of cushions. Our sofa is quite firm and has great support for the lumbar region and easy to get out of. So you can imagine that I was in agony today and it is all exhausting anyway.

    Ooh poor you Sueis. You seem to be quite poorly at the moment. I hope you havenít been overdoing it running around looking after anyone else.
    Cheeky horse.
    Here is a handle one..the oddly match dolls tea Ďsetí I found at Mums and Miss A playing with it.

    Oh dear Susie. You do seem to be in the wars just now.
    Sofa are like beds ,if you don’t get one that’s right for you, then it’s most uncomfortable.
    Beds are the one for Ken. When we go to DDs he suffers a lot with his Sciatica and hip,
    Because the beds are not right for him.
    Hope you feel a bit more comfy tomorrow.

    Nice photos Elaine. Lovely one of Miss A and the dinky tea set.
    I love her little crocs.

    Lovely photo of Miss A Elaine, and I just love your LO - beautiful.
    John Lewis is an ideal place to find lots of handles
    Talking about tyres, the lady at the stables rosie used to go to tied a tyre to one of her ponies to stop it escaping !

    Susie do take it easy, hope you feel better soone x

    Thanks ladies, it's just unfortunate that we have so much on at the moment. Never mind - I love the photo of Miss A with her unicorn hairband, just so sweet. I also love your attitude Elaine, letting her play with these things and not worrying about them getting broken.

    I do wonder if this is an age thing, what does everyone else think? We were brought up not long after the war, rationing only finished the year I was born but I can clearly remember as a youngster how hard mum worked to make sure we had the best food and we were brought up to take care of our things because replacing them wasn't an option. I can remember mum always made sure we had more to eat than her, it was little things even as a child I noticed and food certainly wasn't allowed to go to waste. We all ate the same meal.

    I am terrible for not using things in case they get broken, especially things with sentimental value, is anyone else like that or is it just me and do I need to see a psychiatrist? Even trying not to waste card, which Elaine's has taught me not to worry about, that was an issue although I know I'm not alone in that, but is that because lots of crafters tend to be of my/our age group, the waste not, want not brigade, who knows.

    Anyway, it will be interesting to hear your thoughts. Meanwhile, I've cut out two tablets this week that may have been affecting my ocular pressure, we'll see tomorrow.

    Off to check out you LO now Elaine, I'm sure it will be wonderful.

    Just went back to read a few posts. Denise, we've had dogs that like to lick the bubbles off you in the bath, some love soap, just not being bathed with it though.

    Alison, I love the idea of the horses playing with the ball, why shouldn't they have fun and entertainment. How heavy is it, I would have though it would be a bit heavy for Daisy but obviously not?

    Elaine, I know what you mean about the ears being hard to get dry. When we bath our boys the ears, especially behind them and the back of their legs, high up, take longer than anywhere to thoroughly dry. Those mug handles are such lovely colours.

    Hubby is taking the gold throws back tomorrow. You'll love this - I now have the new ivory throws on and I've thrown the old throws over the seating area so when the boys wipe their faces only the cheap ones will have to go in the wash. They wash and dry so quickly, literally 5 minutes in the tumble dryer. The new ones have to go on a line or over the banister and they are thick so they take a while to dry.

    Panic stations today we found out that our neighbour's blister packs hadn't been sent and the chemist are only open for a couple of hours tomorrow and there wasn't a prescription either. It's sorted now but the funny thing is when we changed over to the packs just before Christmas I chatted with my neighbour and we decided he should start the blister pack on a Monday instead of mid-week so as not to confuse him. So really he should have run out of tablets on Monday of this week gone. Anyway, you know how you get an idea in your head that things could go wrong, well, instead of sending the boxes of tablets back to the chemist I kept them in case anyone messed up, which they did big style. But it means we have the tablets he needs for Monday because he can't get his meds before then. Mind you, if I hadn't sent hubby in to ask about his other meds he would have forgotten to mention it, so that's worrying.

    Don't you find it is all these many little things that happen that are exhausting. I now have to start the fight over pet insurance, one policy has gone up by about 80%, we haven't claimed a penny, the other has gone up 70% haven't claimed on that either. So I don't know what to do, if we pay it will be almost £180 per month and if we don't pay they are bound to get sick. The problem is, if they get cancer especially the old boy would we treat it at his age. Then again, he seems quite fit for an old dog. I've decided to get them checked over with our vet and discuss it with him but he's gone away on holiday for 3 weeks, he gets back just as our policy runs out but you have 14 days to decide after that. Meanwhile, I will have to have a word with the insurance company. I do wish the government would regulate insurance companies more, it really is such a rip off.

    Right off to make something to eat, an omelette salad seems like a good idea.

    Well I can remember rationing. Taking my sweet ration coupon to the shop to see
    what I could get. Not that much I’m afraid.
    We also used to get broken biscuits out of big tins with glass lids that were on the counter.
    When rationing ended we couldn’t believe that we didn’t have to take a coupon to the shop.
    My mom was the same. She always made sure we were fed before her, and my Dad
    always got the bigger share, because he had to go out to work.
    I remember her saying that she wasn’t hungry, many times, and didn’t want any food.
    But looking back I think that she would miss her meal for us!
    She wasn’t as far through as a tram ticket, and worked very hard to keep us
    Clean and well dressed. My Gran, who we lived with, used to make all our clothes.

    I’m a bit like you Susie, not using things because they might get broken, but we
    should use them.
    Hope all goes well at the opticians tomorrow
    Ellie

    Thanks Ellie. It was really interesting to read your memories and my mum also gave dad the lion's share. I used to check on her sometimes when she didn't sit down at the table and it was because she didn't want us to see that she didn't have as much meat or whatever as she'd given the rest of us. Mum's hey, bless them.
