Good morning desk dashers and other readers. I do hope you are well today. So as always on a Wednesday I'm here to share my desk as per the rules of our leader Julia, over at The Stamping Ground
My desk this morning looks like this -
The right side hasn't changed all those pens are still there so I'm showing the window side today.
A WIP book folding present for Christmas, a new colouring book and the parts of a santa wobbler card! I'm not actually sending Christmas cards this year as I want to make a donation to my fundraising in lieu of those cards, but I am giving close friends and family cards. I bought the wobblers years ago and haven't used them so this year I'm going to!
If you only came to see the desk you may wish to stop now the rest is to do with Keagan and our trip to Newmarket!
I wasn't at the crop at the weekend as I was travelling up to Newmarket with my parents and Keagan. Keagan is attending The British Racing school (have a peek at the website it's an amazing place!) to start his racing career. It's been his dream since a little lad.
We had a lovely weekend exploring the town and finding all the top racing yards. Beautiful scenary.
The bottom side of the high street - there's a fabulous clock tower. We stayed just along from here.
The famous gallops. We could see the horses warming up at the bottom of these from our hotel windows while eating our breakfast! The entire town is basically run by horses. Cars have to stop at the horse crossings. And it can take a long time especially in the morning to travel just a short distance.
On Monday Keagan moved in (he's up there till beginning of Feb inc over Christmas!). He was so happy and relaxed that it made leaving much easier than I thought! We also saw his friend Rhian who started up there last week. It was lovely to see her and give her a hug. It was funny as she came out of the common room and Keagan just put his arms out and gave her a big hug in front of everyone!
Keagan's room is great, he's sharing with a lad who is 18 which suits Keagan. He was worried he'd end up with someone who'd just turned 16 and was immature. Keagan is a mature 17 year old as anyone who knows me knows. Nice to know that was his only worry!
They've got their own en-suite shower room and each of them has their own desk and area within the large L shaped room. It's bigger than I thought it would be.
We left him to unpack and get ready for work as they were throwing them straight into it. I left with a smile on my face. Happy to see my boy so relaxed and happy to be there. As we left we saw many of the students sat with their parents in reception not talking to anyone. They gave us startled looks as if to say 'You are leaving already!'
I've since had a few texts saying everything was good, he was enjoying it and already riding yesterday morining. Bless him. Texting without me doing so first. Lol.
Take care Zo xx
