Its been a while since a really good grumble post.!!!!!
Dear everyone selling things on Facebook,
I've a top tip to help sell your item - Prices are amazingly useful things to put with things for sale.
Having to message you and get my message lost in streams of other people asking you things is so annoying that.... I don't even try to buy your item anymore.
Also, its handy to perhaps check what your item is worth before thinking up a price. If your secondhand item is CHEAPER NEW then me thinks you have a lot to learn about advertising and selling.
Just a thought,
Not buying it, Hampshire.
Dear RangeRover driver on the road into village from Southampton earlier today....
I too am impressed with your new shiny car. I know you love it and feel like a real man by driving it. However its not only illegal to drive at over 70 on that particular road, but downright stupid to do that as going by my pony and myself. You not only scared him silly but you nearly killed us both AND dented your car. Do you not recall the Tufty Club? Green Cross Code Man? I know you're old enough....
Plus quite frankly - if I have to wear 'Hi Viz' jackets and look like a neon Michelin man in order to be completely NOTICEABLE you could at least have the decency to slow the freak down.
Trust me, any new dents appear and it just means I've found where you live...
Very cross Horse rider, and pony.
Dear Mother Nature,
I can't see the point of Ragwort. Not in my horses field anyhow.
If you can just sort that....
Me & Puzzle
Stop with the letters now. Its the end of term any day and honestly, us parents stopped reading them weeks ago. No cheques, no forms, no signatures, no headlice notices until September please. I don't know if you realise, but as parents we have enough to do.
lets all go for the paperless approach shall we?

Dear lovely family and visitors,
I like baking. However I like to admire my baked goods for longer than a day.
Yesterdays cakes were really pretty. I think. Cant remember as all evidence has gone....
Just stop eating so fast.
Dearest lovely Puzzle Pony,
I absolutely adore you, you know that. However its been nearly a year since you arrived at our house and I feel you are not fulfilling your full potential. Being such bright and clever pony you can open bolts, undo zips, shake 'hooves', nod and sneeze on command, so lets just skip straight to the talking part shall we?
I worry daily about how you are, how you're feeling, if your legs are okay, if you're hot/cold/hungry/fed up/etc and it would be good for us both if you could just chat away and tell me. A lot less stress for me and a lot more hay for you... win win.
Any day now :)
