Saturday, Sunday, Monday..........

Hannah had a long ride out on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and she loved riding around the lanes and woods.

Sunday was spent dismantling the pool and moving the rabbit run to it's winter location (higher ground and more sun).

Then yesterday we had friends over. The girls played games with their Beanie Boos, and then Hannah and Izzy decided to do some practise Halloween makeup.

Then they got a little dramatic, and started acting out their own version of Snow White!

 Oh dear, poor Hannah!!
 We have also had a visit from a hedgehog and are having nightly visits from a fox (who seems to have a thing for stealing shoes, balls, pool toys and anything else Hannah leaves outside!!)

Staunton Country Park

It's been such a beautiful day today, too nice to stay inside. So Hannah and I went to Staunton Country Park for a walk and a bit of exploring.

Autumn is arriving

We found a little playground,

and a secret fairy path.

 The lake was stunning. Hannah sat here for a while and sketched some pictures.

She loved how the bridge reflection made a complete oval

Hannah spotted a water rat out for a swim

Donald and Daisy, as named by Hannah

Strawberry bear still goes everywhere with her!

 Beautiful sunshine on the lake

The trailing vines are actually enormous bramble shoots making a curtain over the path.

Titchfield Classes

Hannah is really enjoying her classes this term, and is even enjoying her homework! Her classes were much easier this week with her new glasses, and she finally understood maths as she could see the board - success!

This Week - Mostly Horse Related!

We had friends over on Monday. There was much dressing up in disguises (i wish I had taken pictures, they were very inventive).
Hannah had an eye test in the afternoon and found that she needs distance glasses, so she will be getting those soon.

She did a morning at the stables on Tuesday with her friends Izzy and Anna. They groomed, rode, bathed ponies and turned them out. Hannah had a brilliant time, she loves her time at the stables!

On Wednesday Hannah went to drama at The Kings Theatre. First time at drama for a few months and it was a big success. We went out for lunch afterwards and visited Dean at work.

Thursday morning was Titchfield classes. English was good, Hannah wrote an information leaflet about horses. Biology was good, she dissected an onion and examined the cells under a microscope. They are learning about cells at the moment which she found really interesting.  Maths was not quite so good as she struggled to see the white board. Hopefully this will be rectified by the new glasses. We ran over the lesson at home though, so all was well.

Friday was a home day for catching up on day to day things, bringing us to yesterday and more time at the stables.

Hannah riding Maisie (or Maisy - I should really find out!)

Her riding lessons have been going really well and she is much more confident and has improved such a lot. It's actually had a big impact on her life as a whole, the anxiety and worry are gone and she is much more relaxed and happy. Finding the right stables and the right teacher has made all the difference and I am so grateful for that.
