1 point to anyone who knows where the subject line is taken from...

It seems the stupid cold has loosened its grip on me. I spent the whole day sitting or lying down, mainly because every time I tried to stand up I got dizzy. I'm sure Calle was as pleased as I was that the shower stool was still around, as it meant I could get clean without falling over in the shower.

About an hour ago something changed - I couldn't sleep so I got up and didn't feel like the room was spinning around me. It makes a nice change, I must say. If this keeps up I might even be able to go riding this Sunday, which would be nice (and also good for my health). I still miss Samurai, but I also like Melanie, the new horse a lot. It's a very different experience riding a six-year-old from riding a well-schooled elderly gentleman of nineteen. But Melanie is affectionate and very calm - I tried riding in skirts last week, and she didn't bat an eyelid at them, even though it was very windy. That's a bit surprising in such a young and comparatively untrained horse, especially as she is blind on one side. I feel very secure with her; we seem to understand one another reasonably well and I'm sure it'll get even better.

I still love Skutt, though - he's the one I've ridden the longest, and though he can be a bit of a stubborn donkey at times, we have a lot of fun. I think he does some of his tricks just to mess with me and liven things up a little.

It's strange, being all clear-headed again. Though I did get a lot of thinking done during the past few days - as long as I kept sitting or lying down, I was reasonably OK. I've been making some notes about dealing with chronic pain, from various perspectives. I might even post some of them at some point.

You are talking about you are dizzy:

I wonder it if can be a virus at the balance nerves because you had a cold. Ove had this and he was like sea sick. It will go away but I remember it took time for Ove. I was glad the doctor looked at him so we did not need to worry.

I understand you miss the horses. Be well soon so you can meet them again.

I just feel the urge to mention that the "well-schooled elderly gentleman of nineteen" (now twenty) did his best to make my life misereble the other day when we went riding in the snow. He jumped, snorted, sidepassed and behaved more or less as if he was six...

"Well-schooled gentleman" *pah* ;)

Good to hear you're getting better and that it works out for you and Melanie.

Well, I said well-schooled, not well-behaved...

We had a bit of adventure this Sunday; I'll post about it when I have the time.

Mm, that is true... But he's the best no matter how much he is misbehaving...

Adventure? Hope you all are ok?

Yes, I just have a few bruises. The horse was fine.
