This photo is a few years out of date. The kids are a bit bigger, but I like it. This was a fun morning and we don’t often get chance to all play together like that anymore.
So to introductions, my Smurf usually goes by the name of Rob. Having arthritis in his spine, he fully understands how hard and painful life can be. He also loves photography you can find some of his photos on flicker http://www.flickr.com/photos/gloverracing/. As you can see, we like car racing (it’s how we met), but we are moving more towards horse riding. We all enjoy riding and horses are way more fun to cuddle than a car.
My oldest child is my only girl, Jojo is 18 and already living in the big wide world. She spends her time between here and London, where her military boyfriend lives.
Then, there are my boys. Brandon is the biggest one. He is coming up 16 and works at the local British Horse Society Stable. He is training to be a stable hand and riding instructor. The youngest two are Josh (13) and Stephen (11). Stephen starts high school in a few weeks. I can’t believe my baby is getting so big. Both the boys are also learning to ride and will be joining the BHS pony club to learn all about horse care. Then, it looks like I’ll have to buy a horse. Although they keep hinting at one each, all my reasons for not having too many pets is followed by a “but they can live and work at the stable”.
So that’s my rabble, and me, well I’m not sure about me, a lot has changed for me over the last six years. My most exciting news is I have just finished (and passed) my BA in Media. No, that isn’t journalism. Media is communication, books, films, internet, everything, I could talk for hours about my degree, but the best part was my dissertation. Romance Reading in the Twenty-First Century, I loved doing the research and the results are amazing. But that’s a post for another day.
Have a Great Day
