The most wonderful little big horse in the whole wide world

Some days you wonder why you bother getting out of bed. This morning started like one of those days where nothing was going to go right. You know the story, I burnt the toast, stubbed my toe, got an enormous and unexpected bill in the post (making it two days running that this had happened), nearly got taken out at an intersection in town by some random woman who just drove on through, queued for ages to pay for something only to find I didn't have my eft pos card and they won't accept a credit card, went to get cash from the bank and the atm's were both not available so queued for ages in the bank and then went back to pay for said item only to be ignored, completely, by shop staff etc. and so on and so forth.

So, today all this happened and I was feeling more than a little bit over everything until this afternoon when I took Meg to the river for a swim. Meg never ever fails to lift my spirits. No matter how grumpy or depressed I might be feeling, Meg's mere presence is enough to help pick me up out of any slump. She really is the most absolutely wonderful creature and I am luckier than I know how to express to have her in my life. Here are some photos from today and the last week or so of my magnificent Meg.
