Dog Rose

I have had a very busy but enjoyable few days. I sketched this tonight, it is warming up quite quickly and the roses will be finished soon.
Some news, we managed a few Champion ribbons and got most successful Exhibitor, Best foal and I think most successful mare at the big Welsh show over the week end. I went on the Saturday, a long 2 hour drive there and back and a long day in the sun so I didnt go on the Sunday, spent the day cooking, again, and tidying up the house.
Our judges arrived late, tired and sun burnt but pleased to be here, to eat a lasagna and salad I had made and followed by berries and ice cream and then bed in that order!
Sarah showed them around on Monday all the ponies here and then all the ones at Tabby's. We knew how tired they would be as they only arrived from the UK on Thursday and Friday respectively.
I had a specialist appointment and I am now booked in to have an arthroscope in Adelaide, day surgery, on the 25th of this month, a bit soon but it does mean I can go to the sale in New South wales before it happens.
Yesterday was a full day of sight seeing, the wild life park, some shopping and our glorious coast. They didnt want to do too much as they were tired but we all went out to dinner last night as it was their last night with us and Tabby's birthday.
They were a fun lot of people and I hope enjoyed what we had to show them.
Bit hot and bothered and I think John has dinner ready, his night to cook, I have been doing it for days!

Hello Penny,
Your life is so busy!
We will have more visitors soon and I found out today they are staying for ten weeks - so they certainly will have to learn quickly how to garden, clean, cook, and keep busy. Of course it will be wonderful to have family around for more than a week or so.

Your horses certainly did well! You must be exhausted. A relief to have John cooking the supper.
