Riding in Ireland

I have photos, if you want to see them you can go here.

If you love riding, then you should really try this holiday, you get given a map, your horse, B&Bs are booked for you that have a field for your horses, and your follow yellow arrows, doing about 25miles a day for 6 days!
We (edited to add that we, means my mad mother and I. I was sent a text at 8am this morning wanting to know why I had failed to mention her presence!) were so lucky with the weather this year, there was a ten minute shower, and that was it, most embarrassingly I got horrendously sunburnt, particularly the back of my hand which is so painful! The horses as ever are beautiful, and wonderful to ride, forward going, but not too much, and brilliant with traffic. This is the 3rd time I have done one of these trails, there are 3 in total, and I have now done all of them, anyway if that sounds like your sort of holiday then you can go here.
I don't really know what to add, just that it was an amazing holiday, I could go on for ages, but more would be dull if you're not in to horses!

I'm back

So I went away for a little while. I thought I'd put a post up about it, but apparently I hadn't....
But anyway, I've spent a week trail riding (on horses) in Ireland, I'll put up photos shortly, as in I still need to get them off the camera! If you want to see previous trips then you can go here.
I've got back, after a week with no internet, read 60 emails (I'm unloved!), 80 blog posts (so much I would have commented on at the time, but don't want to a week after the original post!), an checked my bank account to work out how I will pay for my car which has been in the garage while I was away. For those of you that know my car it should no longer feel like I'm driving a sofa!

As it's now 11.30 pm, and I'm back at work tomorrow I'd better leave it there, photos and a full account of my adventures will follow.
