Well it was a busy and unexpectedly eventful weekend here. There was good and bad, and there was also very very good and very very bad .........
while I show you pictures of my loot shoot, I shall explain what happened ...

So back to my weekend ...... first the lovely bits:
a close friend came to stay for the weekend,
the sun came out;
we had some favourite friends here for dinner on Saturday;
new and delightful guests arrived in our cottage;
the fairs were not too bad
the not so good bits :
I didn't get enough sleep;
my girlfriend and I didn't find the time to set off with our easels
and paint together as we had programmed;
I ate too much!
and the very very very bad bits:
young Quick, the newest member to our family, and who I have only briefly mentioned here, fractured a front leg on Friday, and although it isn't bad enough to pronounce him "lost", it does means keeping him practically immobile in a stable for about three months. We are dreadfully sad, and full of regret although it was an unfortunate accident that could not have been foreseen.
Normally our horses live in a field, and are checked on each day, but being in a stable will mean at least twice daily cleaning out; food and water and generally a close eye kept on him ...... just when I was wondering what to do with my spare time :) ......
I know that in the great plan of things, one horse's leg may seem trivial, but his injury is serving as a reminder of the importance of each one of us, and how our well-being, or the events in our life, affect our near and dear.
I hope that you enjoyed a safe, relaxing and happy weekend
