Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Who's that dodgy barstard hiding in my Chrissie tree??
So, I may have fucked up with the gluten thing with child no 3 but it looks like gifts are going to be good enough to build up the "good mother" credit points again.
I have got Peta the best bloody gift out. She is horse mad. MAD!! Yet she has never actually ridden a horse, only a donkey at Willowbank when she was about 4. All she wants for Christmas is a pony but, let's be realistic here, we are moving to Aussie in 6 months, there ain't gonna be no ponies under the tree.
So I kept looking around looking for the best gift I could get her. A pony book - shit. A horse ornament - bo ring! A horse calendar - yawn (although I actually got one of these - $27 bloody bucks too!). So what could I get her that actually cut the mustard?
When I was a midget I had my darling dearest Aunty B to teach me to ride. Learnt when I was 4 and rode up till age 15. Haven't since and would kill to do it again. I learnt the ins and outs of equine care and I loved it.
So ..... being a fucken legend ..... I have got her a voucher for a weekend horse riding camp at Kowhai Riding School. She goes on Friday the 4th Jan and stays two nights in bunk rooms with other girls her age and learns every little bit from catching the horse to riding. I was so stoked when I went up there to buy voucher that I nearly asked if I could move in.
I also got her a lollipop girl because she collects them, has three already and I got her this one, there are six in each set.
In the line up of six she has number three, four and five already and I got her number two for Xmas.
They were designed by one of New Zealand's top doll makers, Jan McLean. She makes the coolest dolls, one of my favs is this one, she's sexy as hell:
Am I cool or what?
