It's all an experiment

by JabberJabber on Mon Sep 08, 2014 8:22 am
We might call the children Experiment #1 and Experiment #2 but sometimes it really does seem like they are experimenting on us.

Isaac sat at the table this morning eating breakfast whilst Anthony and I were getting ready upstairs. Isaac starts to call for daddy.

Anthony comments to me "he'll just need to wait a moment"

"Dad" (short, staccato)

3rd one!

I thoroughly enjoyed it today, had same instructor so was abit apprehensive. As in my 2nd lesson i wasn't as keen. Anyway i did work with no stirrups as well as holding reins in one hand and putting hand onto head, hip etc with other hand.
Also had me checking my correct diagonal too which was good. I also cantered for first time too, just a short one, since i returned to the saddle so that was good. Feeling pretty pleased with the way it went!!

And that makes the despicable mama pads even worse IMO than I thought before. Ugh. :x

Wool - dyed and knittedinto longies

by becsom on Fri Feb 05, 2010 8:29 pm
The first lot of Merino wool I bought online, together with some sachets of Kool-Aid.
LOADS of photos - again, to remind myself how I did it (my children stole my memory via my placenta :| )

1. A quick wash in soapy water to remove lanolin, then transferred into a bowl containing water with about a cup-full of white vinegar.
