Hello again :-)
Well good news, I am now awaiting an appointment to have an MRI scan on my hip to suss out what the problem is. My Consultant thinks it may be a cartilage injury and I may need surgery - eek, but I am being positive and hoping physio will be enough to fix me.
I am looking for a little part-time job to keep me going and have been doing some research into potential competitors and pricing. Going to pick my best friend's brain about it tomorrow when we go for tea together.
I am glad the snow has finally started to melt - means that the roads are safer for driving and for riding. Many people have been truly stuck not able to exercise their horses round here. OP is happy enough racing around his paddock and eating the grass through the melting snow at the moment. Not sure when I will be able to ride again but I KNOW I can teach!
That's all for now.
