Today was out wedding anniversary.
I made Mike a card:(I've only had the book on paper quilting for a year, after all!) Worth clicking to embiggen, ifIdosaysomyself.
Mike very kindly did all the mucking out.(While he did so, I took Jo to the vet. Over the last week or so, she's been occasionally yelping or whining, but it's got more frequent and last night she had a particularly bad spell that involved her making a noise for a minute or so. The vet couldn't find anything particularly, but did think she was maybe not *quite* so keen to take her weight on one of her front legs. It may also be a neck thing, although she did have a good feel around there. Short walks and more painkiller than usual for a week, and we'll see how she goes on.)
We had a quiet lunch at home.(During which I took some ibuprofen for a headache and Mike had a migraine pill)
After lunch, and Jo's walk, we headed off to darkest Sussex to look at a horse. He's called Thunder Joe, a name which is definitely going to be unused in full.
We liked him enough to ride, and it seemed to go quite well.Even if it did hail while I was on him, and we were in a field with overly-long grass, which is one of my least favourite places to ride.
We'll go back and see him again next week, with riding instructor, using a school that they can borrow just down the road. If riding instructor answers her text messages....
Afterwards, we headed home again.I'm not sure how the day has been utterly exhausting, but we're both worn out now!
We had a lovely special anniversary dinner...(Party-left-over soup from the freezer, and the other half of the loaf of bread that neither of us ate much of for lunch
...and now we're on the sofa with a bottle of wine.Thankfully, Mike did a run to France yesterday!
