A Very Boring Day

Well, today was even more boring than yesterday.  I'm too young to get a driving license of my own, and there's nowhere to walk from here, so to get Dad to drive me somewhere is the only way to escape this awful dark house...and he decided to tidy up the house instead.  Not that he did much tidying up - he just threw some bags of old newspapers that he "hadn't previously got around to reading" away!
I was in a very bad mood because of this - I want to exercise and get fit, not stay in all the time! - and didn't eat any dinner so as to not put on any more weight.
It's tradition in this house that we each have a gift to take off of the Christmas tree until twelth night...Mum got some turkish delight today (which she called her "bar of fat" following my argument of this afternoon!), Dad got a pair of socks which he promptly told us he didn't like ("Are these for me?  Surely not.  They're not my kind of thing at all!") and I got...Drumroll please...Sniffles the Teeny Tiny Twin My Little Pony - my friend found  Snookums for me in the US about seven years ago, so it's lovely to finally re-unite them.  Now the pony count is 1057 different ponies, and 2245 all together!
I wear a pedometer all the time to count my footsteps, because I'm into keeping fit etc.  but it's impossible to do the recommended 10,000 steps a day around here.  I'm going to boringly record my step count for the previous day every day on here - yesterday's was just 2054...
Mum's watching the "Walk The Line" Johnny Cash film DVD that my sister gave her for Christmas - I like his music, but I'm not really a fan of this film.  Mum's enjoying it though, so that's the main thing!
I'm feeling even more depressed than usual now, because I just discovered that the Canadian TV series that I've waited and waited for here in the stupid UK is to be shown on Hallmark from next week - unfortunately, our TV is playing up with terrible ghosting so I couldn't see it anyway, and we don't get Hallmark...   Those of you who do get Hallmark, count yourselves lucky!
That's all for now,
Desiree

The blog begins...

I tried to post last night, but it didn't work, so I'm trying again now!  *Fingers crossed it works this time around*
Hello, and welcome to the mad world of the Desiree Skylark's My Little Pony Rescue Home Blog!  To find out more about us, please visit our forum at http://ponyrescuehome.proboards84.com We will soon have a proper website too, but I just don't have time to sort it out at the moment!
Nothing much has happened today.  Mum and Dad have been using Dad's computer all day to sort out Mum's family tree, and I've not been doing much at all.  I did count up my ponies and found that I now have 1631 G1's (614 different), 218 G2's (118 different) and 395 G3's (324 different) making a total of 2244 ponies (1056 different)!!!
We're going to go to Asda tonight...all very exciting to the readers of this blog, I'm sure.  But, who knows what I'll find there, my pony friends?  Maybe I'll be able to announce Lily Lightly's arrival in the UK when I get home!
Best wishes,
Desiree (Lancer)
