Breaking News!

On Wednesday afternoon I thought Mom took a little while longer than usual to bring Margaret-Mary back from horse riding...  It turns out that the horse she was riding on suddenly got spooked, bucked and threw her off sideways , her foot still caught in the stirrup landing full force on her elbow... (All these complicated terms!) Hence the break in today's news; a supercondula if you can take another technical term, with a very impressive x-ray to go with it. Following that there was a general anaesthetic a trip to the operating theatre and an overnight sleepover in A&E! All this is equivalent to a hotel spa break for Mom, but I don't think Margaret -Mary was so appreciative!
 We were supposed to be going to my cousin's party but the remaining girls and I went around half an hour late and Mom and Margaret-Mary missed it altogether. There was a moment's silence for them before we all tucked into some very delicious lemon drizzle cake which Maria and I had made earlier.
  You will be relieved to know Margaret-Mary is now recovering back here, amid piles of sweets and adoring little sisters for who nothing is too much trouble...so far..! It will be a little while before she can go riding again, though...and yes, you heard right, she really has not been put off by the experience...in fact, the first thing she said back here was "It was a good job I didnt fall off til the last 5 minutes so at least I had most of my riding time".... Some people never learn....
