If only God would give me a sign!

Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank...

That would be good, certainly, Woody Allen - but there are other smaller signs too. Maybe from God (or a goddess)  Maybe coincidence. Maybe of no significance at all. But they do lift the spirit!

Today, they were silly things.

Coming back from the forest with the horses, we have to cross a busy main road and ride along it for about twenty yards to reach the entrance to the lane on the other side. Sometimes we can wait for 10 minutes before there's a gap in the traffic, and even then when we're on the road, cars often speed past us. It's not funny. Really, it's not. The horses can get quite agitated and then it can become quite scary.

TODAY - a car at the front of a huge line of vehicles actually stopped to let us cross and then a van coming in the opposite direction stopped too. We felt like Moses and the Israelites crossing the Red Sea!

Then, weeks ago, Serena had lost her favourite riding crop somewhere on one of our hacks and had spent ages looking for it. I suddenly saw it in the grass alongside the road. Magic!

Today promises to be one of those days when everything is going to go well!
