When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Monday Memories

Good morning to you all. Another Monday has arrived! In my house this is a very exciting event.

You see we are counting down till Keagan goes to The British Racing School - the best racing college in the world based in Newmarket. 

Keagan wants to be a jockey. Most of you know that by now cos I keep talking about it. He has to complete this course before he can work full time in a Racing yard. Then once he's ready he will return to the school to take the jockey licence course. Fingers crossed.

I wanted to share some memories from Keagan riding over the years to celebrate that there are 14 days until he starts his course!!

April this year - jumping on Zeus.

Keagan and his best friend Hannah going out for a ride this September.

 2014 July taking part in a display at Wellow Trekking centre where he has been riding since he was 7
Action shot!

Now this 2009 January! Big difference in Keagan and the size of the pony/horse!!

My daily Q & A journal asks -

What was your last purchase made by card?
Funnily enough, I've just literally had to pay £100 bond/deposit to the Racing school ahead of Keagan's course. Actual purchases again relate to this event - I had to buy Keagan those sport base layers that keep them warm and also a few bits like PJ tops. As Keagan will be living at the college for the duration of the 14 week course. It's an intense course that sees them work 7 days a week (they do get free time during the day!). Parents are allowed to visit on Sundays and are able to take the students out from 9 to 3pm. Because of the distance, it's a good four and a half hours drive from here, I won't be visiting every week thats for sure.
Take care Zo xx

This is weird!! I was just thinking about you…I saw your fabulous colouring over the weekend(I know you say it's old but I had't seen it before) and there you pop up on mine with a comment - Thank You! I can tell you are getting excited now so I guess Keagan certainly is! Hugs, Chrisx

What a fantastic achievement even before he gets to the school. Your post is just a perfect record to document his progress. You must be bursting with pride. Well done Keagan and good luck for your course. You'll miss him Zo, but it must be comforting to know he's doing just what he loves to do.
