Christmas Poem

6 12 2008

Christmas time is coming
Friends arrive in droves
Bearing gifts and presents
As yuletide spirit goes
But for a change this Christmas
Take some time to think
That presents are not everything
And what surrounds you is so great

Give a hug this Christmas
Or lend a helping hand
Kiss them on the cheek
Tell them what their worth

Spend it with your family
Send it to your friends
Love is all that matters
At Christmas and forever.

Random Shot

Here’s a random shot i took lately, i just like something about it.

I figured it was about time i updated my beloved blog.  I haven’t had a chance to upload any of my recent photos which i’m disappointed about but i’ll get a chance soon.

College is going well so far.  I had an interview yesterday which i felt went really well.  i didn’t want the job because it was too far away but the experience is great to have.

Horses are going well to and the stables have began construction! No length now until they will be up.  Holly is coming along great in her training sessions so we’ve great promise for her.

I haven’t much news to be honest, just had a few mins to spare and someone mentioned the blog to me so I figured i’d do a bit of surfing and update it.

Hope all are keeping well.

first off i’m sorry i haven’t been updating the blog lately however i did warn in my about page that this could happen!

anyway, i have some time to spare so i decided i would share a few of my views on things i’ve been doing lately.

On Books..
I’m a big Cecelia Ahern fan, for those of you who don’t know she is an Irish author who’s father use to be taoiseach of our country, taoiseach is like a prime minister in some respect. Anyway, i love her books, i’ve read three of them so far and i thought i was on top of them however while wandering through my local book shop yesterday I spotted two new books she has written! So obviously i’ve missed one. I’m off next week to purchase book 4 ‘Thanks for the Memories’ and while i’m at it i’ll try buying some time to read it!

On College..
The college front is going somewhat bleakly! I have to say I am enjoying fourth year, its much different to the previous years. There is still that bit of networking but its enough for me to handle. We are doing alot of business projects, case studies and presentations which are all interesting and good experience. When I finished school this was the course i wanted to do, the problem was that i had to do all the other courses to get to this point, so i’m going to enjoy it.
I have to admit though that i’m getting slightly worried about my work placement module. Not the fact that i have to go out to a company, that part dosn’t phase me at all, its finding the company. As you may know Ireland is in ‘recession’ *begin scarey music* and alot of companies aren’t really interested in taking on students. I may be forced to work unpaid if I cannot find somewhere because unfortunately if you don’t do your work placement you fail your year. And I don’t do failing! Fingers crossed something will come up.. I haven’t given up yet by a long shot.

On Pictures…
I’ve been very busy with college, horses and work so unfortunately i haven’t had much of an opportunity to take pictures lately which is quiet annoying. Some day me, my camera and mica (my car) will twaddle off for a days snapping.

On Horses..
I don’t think i introduced the horses before so I think now is a good time because there a big part of my life. I have seven horses at the moment. One is jointly owned but still i have say in her.. so here we go

Mark is my 13’2 Connemara pony. He is my pride and joy. I love him to bits. Why Mark, well sure why not! He is broken and riding. We usually hack around at home and go to some small shows.
This is Mark’s sisters – Maggie

The foal in the picture is Beans. Here’s one of him now that he is a bit older.

Right, so, so far we’ve had Mark, his sister Maggie and her foal (from last year) Beans.
Now, this is Sally, she is Mark and Maggies Mum and Beans’s granny!
Were one big happy family!

This picture was taken last winter so she’s really long hair in it. She’s a pet.

Thats all the ponies. Onto horses now.

This is Katie. Shes our Irish Draught cross. She’s only two, but i can’t wait to work with her.


Holly is jointly owned, were going to have fun with her.

Now thats everybody.

I have to go now but i’ll post again shortly
