Back In The Saddle Again
Well almost.. This post title was a toss up between the two.. The melodramatic 'They Shoot Horses'.. or the uppity 'Back In The Saddle'... I went with the melodrama although starting to feel 'back in the saddle'.... Round two of antibiotics.. This time the right ones and I'm almost feeling like my old self again!!.. What a nuisance this tooth problem was... I was a little dizzy and disoriented last week and kept running into people.. Run over some guy with my trolley in the supermarket and then put on a woeful display of parking yesterday at the doctor's surgery.. BUT... one day on the good stuff and it's safe for me to be back on the roads again.
Now these poor horses wont' have such luck.. I came across these guys in Rome last August.. 39c and there they were having to transport lazy tourists with their designer shopping... [see still melodramatic haha].. But really folks.. It was tough to see these guys suffering in the heat.. I wanted to drag them into the shade and give them all a nice drink of water.. Not being a horse person I don't really know if this was tough on them.. But they looked sad and tied.. Actually I think we all looked sad and tired in that heat but we had a choice!!
Speaking of heat.. It's starting to heat up here in Sydney.. Although everyday seems to have four seasons and swings wildly between too hot and humid and damp wet and slightly chilly.. I'm grateful for the mostly cool nights whilst I get back into the swing of it all.. So pardon my absence and hopefully will be 'Back In The Saddle Soon'.
Have A Great Weekend All
