I think it goes without saying that I will have the coolest messenger bag in all of London! I'll probably just retire my other bag now and use this one all the time.
Yesterday in a nutshell: we went to see horses parading around somewhere in Chelsea (this included knights jousting and how to harness a Clydesdale), then came home, where I read and did cross stitch.
This quote was posted at the Horses in War event, and I think it's well worth repeating: "And here I say to parents, and especially to wealthy parents: 'Don't give your son money. As far as you can afford it, give him horses.' No one ever came to grief - except honourable grief - through riding horses. No hour of life is lost that is spent in the saddle. Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing horses, but never through riding them; unless, of course, they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die." - Winston Churchill
