Arrived in Norway

Hey there!

Gosh it is cold and gonna get colder yet.

PLEASE clothes be warm!

I am super excited though!

Today I am teaching 4 people down in Østfold, two old clients and two people I’ve never meet before.

And tomorrow I’m heading up to Trondheim.

I’ve actually booked me and dad into an hotel close to the airport so I don’t have to get up at 4.30 am in the morning – spolied now!

Yesterday the farrier was here

So they all got new little tootsie’s.

I did some babysitting and I taught Jen. And you know what!!

She had a canter!

How nice is that! Well done to them!

Jen came to me after loosing her confidence and she was considering giving up riding – and now look at her! Beaming! So happy for her!

I will end this post with a picture of my lil’boys

Aren’t they just adorable!

Vlogmas crazyness!

So the reason why the blog has been so quiet recently is because I am doing Vlogmas

Which you can go and watch if you click on this link

Vlogmas Playlist

It is lots of fun but it does take up a lot of time.

So a normal evening now consists of sitting on the floor, watching my gerbils and editing the days vlog!

I post them with a days delay as I need the time to edit them after a long day, and the internet needs a night to upload them. It has been working well so far.

Today I got my nails sorted;

So from now on it will be festive vlogging only

Haha No, don’t worry it won’t! I’m probably the least Christmassy person you’ll meet!

I tried to ride yesterday, it did not go well – at all. So truth be told, it’s been very emotional few days going between lyrical to depressed and everything in-between! If you want to dig deeper – feel free to watch the latest vlog (day 6) it will be up later tonight. Internet taking forever

Trying something new!

Hey

How are we all doing?? I am feeling a little better – my headaches are definitely less! Such a relief, they really knackered me out!

I’m trying really hard to figure out what to blog about but in fear of producing something bad – I have kinda “shut down”

But that has made me think!

Do I always have to produce really big and deep blog posts?

The same with my other social media accounts.

So – two weeks ago I decided to try something new.

#TinyTipTuesday

Where I share a little quote or a little word of advice with a very short caption;

You can click on the photos to read the captions

And I really like it. It makes me feel useful but without feeling guilty I’m not at my best at the moment!

I was thinking about doing a little something on my YouTube

#TranslationThursday

Where I either talk about words and try to simplify what they mean – or give you translations between English-Swedish-Norwegian

I would love to hear your thoughts on that!

X-ray, acupuncture, ultrasound, straight neck and flying money!

Hey!

I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet on here! Just not been feeling like writing, partly because it hurts my hand to write to much in one go and I hate splitting it and coming back to it later – I lose my flow!

Anyway I thought I needed to give you an update on how things are going!

Danza is doing well, and her leg is improving so fingers crossed it will continue that way. She is very bored and would love to go out playing but is being very cool about it all!

Me on the other hand, hahaha! Well at least we are finding cues to what’s going on! I’ve been seeing a chiropractor (she might have additional education, I am not sure – she is really good though, that I’m sure of) Maybe 4/5 times now and we’ve been doing loads of stuff!

Initial consultation she wanted to do a neck x-ray before working on it so we did that. And because of the issues with my wrist we x-rayed that too.

We got the pictures and she noticed two vertebraes out of line in my neck and also the fact my neck is straight. Let me come back to that later. Wrist showed nothing with the bones – so we are a little clueless about what is going on there. We are treating it as if I had something called Dorsal Wrist Syndrome for the time being and treating it with rest, ice and ultrasound.

This week she wanted to do another consultation. On my back this time, to get a bigger picture. We haven’t taken any x-rays there but she is fairly convinced there are stuff not where they should in there too. Would explain a lot! She did some tests and to my great surprise the pain and weakness comparing one leg to the other was very interesting – much greater than I knew.

To get a full understanding of what’s going on – I need an MRI so that’s my new mission – wish me luck!

Straight Neck

What is it?! Well I don’t know!

I’ve been looking online, and it gives you lots of explanations. But not many answers unfortunately. Maybe some of my lovely followers has it and can shine some light on it for me?

How have you managed it? How did you get diagnosed with it? How did you treat it?

I will end this on a happy note and say my next Trondheim clinic is sorted out! Hopefully my health will stand up to it because mentally I am absolutely 110% ready to go and have a blast ❤️

Is My Birthday – Meet my two new fury friends 😍

🎊Today is my birthday 🎉

And as you might know Cyril sadly passed away 💔

You can see a little good bye video by clicking here❤️

So for my birthday Heather said “Come on – let’s go to the pet shop” “I saw how much you loved and cared for your Squirrel and I want to give you something else little and fury to care about” Now!! How lovely is that?! And with that said not only one – the fury little animal I wanted lives better as pairs! Double trouble!

We bought everything necessary for now – I am already looking out for a bigger home for the two little ones!

Are you ready to meet them?

I haven’t figured out what to call them yet!!

Excuse my not so good pictures!It is two male Gerbils! It was so close between these two and another two females! But this one;

Stole my little heart! Heather calls him Brad!! “He is so beautiful! He is the Gerbils answer for Brad Pitt”

Haha she makes me crack up!! But well he is handsome! And cute!

And there they are!! Aren’t they lovely?

What else I will do on my birthday is unclear! I will babysit, walk my pownie and eat nice food! So I suppose not bad at all really!!

Pre Birthday Celebrations – Family Visit

This has been a very unusual weekend – as I haven’t been horseying around!

My dad and his girlfriend has been here. My cousin and her boyfriend stayed in Cambridge.

We have been eating lovely food

We managed to escape the escape room!!

We went to Colchester Zoo and now more than ever do I want a bird ❤️

Look how beautiful they are!

Under here is a slideshow from the Zoo. I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s quite a lot of pictures but I hope you enjoy it!

It was a lovely weekend. They obviously got to meet Danza and Squirrelie too, I’m pretty sure both of them thought it was great! Or shall I say all four of them, animals and humans haha!

Seeing how it was fathers Day yesterday I will end this with this picture.

Take Care

And hope your week will be good!

A sisterly timehop – Meet my lilsis Sandra

Hey everyone! I’m gonna start with telling you a little bit about myself. I’m Anne-Charlotte’s sister, we have the same mother, and I’m 6,5 years younger than her. Oh and my name is Sandra. I live in Sweden and just finished a bartender-course in Mallorca, so now I’m a bartender and looking for a job somewhere in the world. So hit me up if you need a bartender somewhere 😉

So, let’s talk about me and Ancha. We like singing, writing and horses (though my sister’s horse-interest has always been much bigger) and we’ve always had very good grades in school. Still, me and my sister has always been very different.

It might have looked like we had the perfect childhood, but that isn’t the full truth. We had to grow up way too fast and I think that ruined our relationship. We fought a lot and always blamed the other person when we got in trouble. I think that is one of the main reasons why our relationship is a bit hurt.

I sometimes wish that we had a better relationship, a closer bond. And sometimes I think that it’s too late, and that we’re too different. And that what we have today is enough. Maybe someday in the future, we will be closer.

But, instead of talking about the difficult things about being kids, I will tell you about some of the fun we had together. We could sit and play will dolls and barbies for hours and during the summers we would play in the pool until our skin was like raisins. We sang karaoke, with Swedish Schlager and danced to pop-music on my wii.

Last time I saw my sister was in February this year, and that was when I visited her in London. We lived at a nice hotel and ate a lot of good food. I would say that food is both mine and my sister’s biggest interest. Though she is a bit more fussy than I am.

So, if you wanna charm either of us – FOOD is always the answer!

xo, Sandra
