I wont say anymore, but honestly, i couldnt put it down, and i hvae just cried my way through the last chapter..... Such a really great book and it really gives us a bit to think about...
Maybe our younger selves can teach us a thing or two!!!
Go and get it, its a great read!!!
Note to self: When booking an advanced Tafe course, make sure that Tafe only book in people that are capable of LEARNING an advanced course, otherwise its just too damn frustrating and you are sitting there twiddling your thumbs all night!!!
"Smile properly mum!!!"

It was Dial In drags, so it doesnt necesarily mean the fastest bike wins, and very rarely does the fastest bike win!!! I mean a posite bike has taken it out in the past.... With a R1 coming second!!! Hard to believe!!!
They even had t -shirts made up with T & M Racing on the front and on the back they had their names (The racers) but the pit girls had "Hotties" on theirs...

So Emelia rode him but he was just being naughty, he didnt rear at all.
So we pulled out the Barrels... He always rears doing the Barrels... But he didnt!!
He couldnt get his head up!!
So it might work.
To test the theory I got on him and worked him a bit harder.
I did a barrels run with him, and its amaising how it all comes back to you... He did brilliantly!! This horse is amaising!!!
I really have to get a saddle and ride him more often!!!!
I also did a couple of jumps.....

But they got a yellow ribbon (4th place). They were so happy!!! I didnt see what they were doing in this photo until i downloaded it. But they have both got thier thumbs up!!!
Heres Trooper and Solo sharing the love!!!!
This was the trotting race. Solo was going great - until he pig rooted!!! I got it on camera!!!
With the sporting. Solo is getting better and better. Emelia doesnt push him at all... We are kinda trying to retrain him. He is a State Champion Sporting Horse!!! I saw what this actually means today as their was a couple of boys from Tamworth competing for it... Boy oh boy - to see their horses do the barrels was amaising!!! To think Solo used to do this!!!
Its any wonder the horses reach a point where they say enough is enough....
But i think he knows that we are just having fun, hes not going for any trophies or even ribbons, but having a good time!!!
He did the barrels so well today. Emelia actually cantered it!! The first time ever!!! He also cantered the bends, and did an awesome turn in the keyhole!!
This is one excellent horse!! Hes so impressive.
I know that once Emelia gets some more experience, she and Solo will really achieve some great things....
Probably more along the lines of campdraft and polo rather than pony club though.... This is her final pony club year, so we will have to get her aleigned with the other clubs soon....
Weight Loss:!!! Good things this week... Cant wait till Wednesday to see if all stays as good as its been. Ive lost another half a kilo!! Yay!!
