Welcome to blog! I started it in 2020 to chart my recovery from breaking my ankle (hence the name). I guess no-one saw a global pandemic coming. It's turned into a place where I can talk about the things happening in my life, my horse and my cats. Enjoy!
So 2020 was going to be my year. The year I got my life sorted after being served redundancy notice from my job in November 2019. The year I ticked off more things from my horsey bucket list. The year I got my mental health back under control and reduced stress in my life.
I had a plan. And it was a good one. Then the plan changed dramatically on 2 January. I came off my horse at speed and broke my ankle. Badly. Like all good equestrians, I got back on and rode back to the yard, sorted Buddy out and then drove myself to A&E. That’s where this journey really began...
I was sent home from A&E and told to crack on, only to receive a phone call later to say they’d missed a fracture (and a rather serious one at that). Whoops! So fracture clinic on 3 January, surgery on 5 January and home to recover.
I started this blog as a way to chart my recover back to the saddle. As I cleared clinics and competitions out of my diary and wondered what the next few months would bring, it's been a safe space for me to say how I'm feeling.
The new plan was to get a new job, to keep Buddy is kept ticking over and recover from my injury. Another good plan! I didn't expect a global pandemic, lockdown and all that happened in 2020.
This blog has changed over time but it's continued to be my safe space to share the things going on in my life, with Buddy and the cats. Enjoy!

It sounds like you had a wonderful time visiting your friend in Suffolk! It’s always great to catch up with loved ones, especially on special occasions like birthdays. And how sweet that Bailey was so happy to see his Auntie Pip – pets truly bring so much joy and love into our lives. It’s no surprise that he wanted to come home with you, given the special bond you share with him. Cherish those moments and enjoy the memories you’ve made during your visit. Thank you for sharing your lovely experience with us!
Thank you for your lovely message. My friend is like my little brother. I had to see him on his birthday.
I’ve known Bailey since he was a puppy. I assumed he was like that with everyone. But no, he’s only like that with me. He usually stays in the house. But when I arrive, he’s like my shadow. Bless him.
