yesterday allison took my down to the yard and i managed to potter out to molly, who duly walked back to the gate for some hugs. Happily she wasn't too far away across the field (unlike today - i seriously wasn't up for walking right across to the other side on uneven ground!) and i was pleased to get a chance to say hello and check her over. she's got one new cut that wasn't there before, same as previously a sideswipe from a hoof. she got lots of hugs from me whilst licking partner's neck, which was bizarre - might have been a good salt lick, that!
to swollen to think about getting on her - if i'm struggling to walk, then riding isn't a good plan, i don't think!
and i've just acquired a rocking chair - next door didn't want it any more and she was going to have to take it to the tip if we didn't, i've always wanted one so there you go! not sure which room it'll spend it's life in but at the moment i'm sitting in it typing this.
oh yes, and i tried driving today, to see if i could. i think i might be ok with that. the secret of it is to do everything slowly, good anticipation, and minimise the gear changing. so i guess i'll be going to work tomorrow under my own steam (I told them if i couldn't drive i wouldn't be in ...)
