Well, either that, or I could let her go to school with half a brown face. But the teachers already look at me funny, so I didn't fancy brazening that one out.
Everything had been going to well up to that point. Izzy has been a bit fascinated with dobbins recently, so I earned double brownie points today when I took her to the fields behind the village to stroke a real-life horse.

And in case you were wondering - yes! It is the same nag that chased Naughty George a few days ago because NG was running around its legs and woofing. I am surprised the little git didn't get a hoof in his face for his trouble.
This is the serious business-end of today's blog.
Before I forget, you will be pleased to hear that I fulfilled my New Year's (kind of) resolution, and that I am now working fulltime. But when it comes to blogging, the time I have got available has reduced
Previously when I used to blog, I would do three things; (1) write my own blog; (2) reply to people's comments on my blog; and (3) read other people's blogs and comment on them.
Now, I only have time to do two of the three things. So, there is no way I am stopping blogging, and there is no way I am stopping reading and commenting on the blogs I follow. But, I don't have time to reply to each comment on MY blog as well. So, that is why I haven't been as active in that field as I would have liked.
But please keep the comments coming ........ every five minutes, one or other of you makes me laugh my head off (ha ha bonk) and it brightens my day, and although I may not reply to each one directly, you can rest in the knowledge that is is SUPER appreciated. So using the time that I save, I will be visiting your blog and commenting on that instead. Does that sound like a plan? Jeez, I am like the 'A Team'. I could run into a garage with a spanner and a few tin cans, and come out with a tank.
Blimey, I have never written a blog so serious before. If I don't watch out, I could accidentally become a political commentator ....... talking of which, that Blair has a lot to answer for doesn't he?
Uggggghhhh! It's starting to happen!
