  1. Riding! Come out to the sticks and ride Apache whenever you want. She’s a 13.2 skewbald cob with beautiful choclaty ears and a great temperment. If i learn more about blogging etc I may (eventually) post a picture or video of her.

    Also have crazy Springer Spaniel who would love to meet you (or anybody else to be truthful)

  2. Ah thanks for the offer but I fear I would break anything less than 15 hands! Although in my head it would be funny…

  3. Yay to Bryan Adams! I still miss my ambulance bloke… though as he taught me to drive, he has a lot of answer for!

  4. I also love pasta, but that’s because I’m a student and its a) easy to cook, b) cheap and c) quick

  5. Some of your 50 don’t apply to me and many I could say I would put on my own list except for # 25 — too cyncical.
