The Wrong Hoof

Hello! Long time no see.

I have a couple of apologies to make.

First of all, a simple one. Sorry to those of you who received an email saying I’d posted a blog post about my horse. My Uncle is currently riding a horse around England for charity and when he reached us in Devon he borrowed my laptop and forgot to log into his own account before posting. If you are interested in finding out more about the ride please visit http://www.rideroundengland.org/, what he’s doing is truly amazing and he is giving all money to children’s charities. So far he has done over 2000 miles just him and his horse, which is no small feat at 65!

Secondly, I apologise for the lack of posts over the last couple of months. I recently got home from my travels and have a lot of things to sort out, so blogging has kind of gone on the back burner for a while. However I have lots of things to write so hopefully I will be updating soon! I shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was that doing a very hectic tour of Peru and Brazil without any form of laptop or notebook computer made it impossible to write blog entries.

Those of you who followed my Quebec blog will know I have been away from home for a long time. Now I’m here again I’m having to do scary grown-up things like move to London and find a proper job as well as remembering how to live in this wonderful wacky country. Since I’ve been away the Olympics have faded into memory and an entire mobile phone network has disappeared (Do we even have Orange Wednesdays anymore? Who provides us with amusing pre-film entertainment in cinemas?) There are also new varieties of McVities’ Digestives and Hobnob biscuits to try, so I’m not complaining too much.

Other than the fact that my average two cups of tea a day has been upped to four after my extended absence I have settled back into my usual life without many changes. I am loving seeing friends and family again and plan to be here for a little while before heading off on the next adventure. The constant ups and downs brought on by job hunting can be stressful but my fingers are crossed that I will find something!

Don’t worry, I’ll be back to boring you all soon!
