Not Got Much

I’ve not got much to say except I didn’t get the sponsorship deal.  Everyone else did. Just not us.  Yes, I am very disappointed but I guess scruffy ponies are not the way forward for some.

My back hurts at the moment (whinge, whine…. ooh, wine!)  I am going to have an MRI to see what is going on as it’s been a few years since the last one.  I was also offered a consultation with a spinal surgeon but I said a very hurried no! I would rather find out what is going on first before I even think about that and I’m not thinking about that.

The weather is vile and we could all do with some nice days.

Ted is due his haircut next week.  He looks like a greasy muppet.

I hope he behaves (he has his moments).

And I am just feeling very meh about everything.  I think it is the time of year.

Sorry for the whinge. I will try and do better next time.

    I read somewhere that voicing ‘whinge-ing’ thoughts was healthy. It certainly helps me to let them out and let them go. Go for it with pleasure, share away.

    Everyone is entitled to a whinge now and then. I’m sorry things are so miserable for you at present. And I’m sorry you didn’t get the sponsorship. What a pity!

    As one who has had to put up with a very not happy back for most of my life, believe me when I send commiserations & healing vibes your way. You have made the right choice–surgery is always the very last option when everything else has been done.

    I am so sorry about your not getting the sponsorship. I am on no social media by choice, but if you decide to enter into any more of these offers, I can certainly write and talk up what all you do for your four footer family members. How dare they not include horses & sheep! I so enjoy reading about all their exploits even though I do cringe with you lifting the heavy buckets daily & ,especially, in the wild inclement weather you have.

    I shall send the best of back healing thoughts your way!

    You’re definitely entitled to have a good whinge! The weather this winter has been the absolute pits. It makes everything such hard work. Plodging through mud is not a lot of fun at the best of times but so much worse when you’re battling wind, rain and pain as well. You have all my sympathy.

    So very sorry to hear about your not getting the sponsorship. What is wrong with those people? Also sorry that your weather continues to be crapville and your back is hurting like crazy. Your whining makes perfect sense to me. Keep it up until you feel better! Take good care Frances!

    Whinge away – back issues suck almost as much as knee issues (me). And shame on the sponsor to not see a golden opportunity to gain new customers with sponsoring your Minions. Non-show horses and ponies are still very important to acknowledge. Shame on them.
