My first blog - were we brave or mad?
Have had RA five years now, had many ups and downs but feel I am getting to grips with the beast now, at least I know when to give up and rest. Last year we achieved our dream, moved to a smallholding in the most beautiful place on earth (North Lancashire, in case you are wondering!) Friends said we were mad and I would never cope. The Hermit is doing his PhD and I am pottering in the house and outside. Two geriatric ponies, a rescue dog and a vegetable garden, what more could a Granny want?
Does anyone else out there still ride? The mucking out always has to be done but a gentle ride on my old friend is the best therapy I know. Can't go today as the roads are too icy, will stay in and make marmalade instead.
Next time you hear from me I may be moaning about symptoms, struggling with meds, thought I would start on a positive note!
