I have a very strong streak of it in my personality. Suppose it's what's stood me in good stead at times but it also gets me into slightly hot water. Then again, don't think it's the stubborn streak that does that, think it is just my personality.
Things have been a bit in limbo of late hence the lack of blogging. Just haven't felt like it & not really not had anything to say (no need to gasp in shock! Lol).

Knee is passable but not great & I have been banned completely from riding. I feel like I've had my right hand chopped off :o(

The ban came about because when I saw physio last month she wanted to know what I'd been doing & I told her, she didn't take kindly. She took even less kindly to the fact that Sunny is not the nursemaid she'd been envisioning but doesn't mind acting like the equivalent of a boy racer when she feels grass under her feet.

She is a very good girl but she is strong & can be a little bit loopy which has never bothered me before but is a little now as I cannot afford to take falls like I used to, not until things are sorted anyway.

So, not only am I not allowed to ride but my confidence has taken a nosedive too. Gah!
My sister has now taken over riding duties as the most I could do with Sunny is walk sedately round the arena & that is not her style.

So, I have been demoted to pole adjuster on show jumps, the giver of leg-ups (leg-
ups. Just to make that clear, lol) chief lunger & sometime groomer. Oh, & I also get laugh my arse off when sister hangs gracefully from Sunny's neck when Sunny kindly goes from canter into gallop & takes a 3ft jump as if it was the Puissance wall at Olympia. Poor sister got launched out of saddle & onto neck before swinging underneath neck & eventually onto feet. Lol.

I didn't tell the physio that Sunny has also stood on my foot whilst walking into me from a standstill, rendering me completely unable to move & so knocking me squarely onto my arse in the past. Then having the cheek to look at me in a dumbfounded way while I sat & looked up at her, slightly dazed (& embarrassed seeing as farrier & about 8 other people were in the yard, trying not to giggle) In her defence she was spooked.

If physio & doctor knew that I would be banned from going within a mile of anything remotely Equine but there is no way I'm going to give up going to the yard completely. Then again, I think they know that anyway, I sort of made it clear....

As for knee problem. I was supposed to see the nurses last week in preparation for repair but they were short staffed & the appointment got cancelled so it is now on the 9th.
I was pissed off that day as each time it feels like I'm getting somewhere I have to wait longer because something goes wrong. It's like that trick where somebody attaches money to invisible string, just as you get within two paces it's pulled out of reach again. I don't blame the staff because it isn't their fault nobody was available to cover them for sickness.
But I do blame this cocked up, arse licking, fucked up, morals of Satan himself, gut wrenching, maggot infested, greedy out for themselves, diseased & corrupted, twatting arsehole of a government who, for God knows what reason, view themselves as fit to run this country but have only succeeded in running it so far into the ground there is no way back.
I wouldn't leave them in charge of a dog. Dickheads.

Yeah, I needed to take my frustration out on something, they deserve it ;o)

Post turned into a rant, never mind. Needed somewhere to vent my spleen!

I'm sorry to hear they keep putting things off. You must be so frustrated, I completely understand your rant. I think you've been remarkably patient, quite frankly.
