Good evening all, the time has come to talk to you about some updates and changes that have happened in the last couple of months.
Firstly, my girlfriend and I have parted ways, it was a mutual agreement that we both felt needed to happen and we're working on being just friends now.
End of July we moved the girls to a new yard some 20/30mins away in Wargrave, Berkshire. It's much friendlier than our old place and the girls are ten times happier than they were when we were making the decision to move. Meg is having some foot troubles now, which is a bit of a worry, with the location being super gravel orientated and more road work than we had before. As I'm only a sharer, I'm having a really difficult time trying to persuade her owner (also a good friend) to front shoe her. I'm going to make a poll about this because I want to know what everyone thinks, good or bad - I need serious help in this case!
I have a massive list of people to thank for my birthday wishes you're all superstars and I will get round to you all very soon with thanks. <3 especially to those of you who made me art and images in dedication, I have seen them (thank you) but I'm also snowed under right now, so please bear with me
A couple of weeks ago, a colleague and myself were called into my bosses office and point blank accused of bullying his daughter. Not only was this a shock, but I found out that a lot of the things I had told her at the gym or in the pub had somehow found their way back to daddy (my boss) and she had been two-faced to all of us. The bullying consisted of, but was not limited to, ignoring her when we started the day, not saying morning, not including her in conversations about the office, making her cry, accusing her of getting parts of her job wrong, talking in the office, not talking in the office, creating an atmosphere by not talking in the office, not asking her how her holiday was, talking about tv program's she didn't watch and not interacting with her when she wanted to talk about tv shows that we didn't watch, not inviting her out to lunch, talking about her behind her back.... Etc etc. the list went on for over 10 minutes. It was pointless trying to argue your point because he was having none of it, so we were marked down and sent back to work, needless to say my wish to work there has now been slashed by 89% and I'm looking for a job elsewhere. Two weeks later, and two tech guys get called in for pretty much the same thing. If the whole work place is "bullying" your daughter, then surely your daughter is the problem!??! There are 13 people in our company, 8 are looking for a new job... Says a lot doesn't it?
The people at the new yard we've moved to have helped me set up my equine photography business; Facebook.com/VickiClarkeEquinePhotography and one of the lecturers has enabled me to accompany her on her XC clinics to build up a client base. I couldn't ask for a better set of friends right now ~ with real life (bringing home the bacon) work treating me as a spare part this was just what I needed to set me on the right track again.
I took Ozzy to the beach with friends at the weekend for my birthday, it was brilliant and I really think (I really hope) he had fun with the other doggies and playing in the sea, running around in the sun In the week leading up to the trip he wasn't too well and I really hoped he'd be better to take with me. He's not well though, there isn't long left with my little man and it's heart-wrenching to watch. He's got kidney disease and is slowly losing not only weight, but condition too. He's as skinny as a rake and it looks like we don't feed him. But no matter how much he does eat he just can't keep the weight on. 😢 It's tough on the family, he's a part of this family and I had foolishly thought he would defy all reason and live forever... We're making the most of the time we have left; and if that means frequent beach trips with doggie friends, I am most certainly gonna do it, time and time again
My commissions are still on hold, I owe a lot of people a lot of things, so they'll be that way for the foreseeable future (I'm sorry!) those who have a slot it has been honoured and put under "other" and stamps are coming soon too, after this current batch I shake not be making any more for groups unless specifically agreed before payment. I just don't have the time to keep changing it again and again months down the line because the members have changed.
I'm around, even if I'm not posting all the time, I read comments and journals and send notes and read them too, but I do not always have the time to answer them and I'm sorry for that too. Quite a few people have asked me about commissions and trades in the last couple of weeks and I'm afraid I'm going to have to say no here and let that be that. The time constraints these last couple of months have doubled and what time I find to play on photoshop I lose interest in a piece in a matter of hours. I miss you all and think of you often and wish only for a little more time to enjoy what really matters; soon I hope, soon.
Thank you for reading x
