And it didn't get any better today!

OK, so I figured things had to get better today - hah!

To be honest the day did start with promise, the girl child got out of bed on only the 2nd banging on the door and we did manage to get on the road to the stables before 8:30. The jumping lesson went well with Elvis making a supreme effort to concentrate and behave. The hubby phoned to say my car was repaired and ready to run and it was smiles all round.

Then I collected my car and discovered that now the central locking wasn't working - no problem, I can live without it for a few days! By the time I got the car home there was a mighty rattling and clunking coming from 'somewhere'! So it was back to the workshop, where they tightened everything they should have tightened the first time!

Then I got the phone call to say that the horse truck we are HIRING to move our horses had been double booked and so now would we mind loading our horses at 3am, in the dark and travel them 400kms on some of the most dangerous roads so that the other party wouldn't be inconvenienced! I shall not print my reply - it really is just too rude! I mean, really, do I CARE about the sensitivities of the 'other party'? I don't think so! So we have compromised on a 5:30am start, which means I shall have to be up and on the road to the stables at 4:30am!

And now I am sitting here typing this when I should be packing and sorting but I am just so fed up I don't know where to start! I think I may just go and soak in the bath!

One thing in life is certain. If one thing goes wrong, everything else does too! On the other hand they do say 'things can only get better'. Think positive!

This too shall pass... think positive! If nothing else, get in the tub and relax and let the calgon man take you away...

What do they call it, Murphy's Law.
However did you manage. I've never had a horse that loads well. Heaven only knows what I'd do if one of mine went into a trailer without stalling.

Hey Jayne, Long time, no see. I think that it's comforting to know that everyone has days like these ... and even a string of days like these. So, know that you are providing a valuable service to all of us. You make me feel more normal. Haha...

Hey Jane, Horse Transporter's. What can i say. They should compensate you for their screwup. Sounds like being a horse transporter could be another side job for you to consider. Deirdre.

Hi Guys and thanks for the words of encouragement! We are back :) Despite all the dramas we did eventually get there, the horse and the girl child didn't do too well (most likely the lack of practise time had a LOT to do with it)but we had fun anyway. The horses are all tucked up in their stables and I am in a collapsed heap on the sofa - thinking about a VERY hot bath. Pictures and details to come on my Over the Stable Door blog :)
