Cant come soon enough. Fucking SICK of this place. Worked my ass off over the last 2 months and then get threatened that if I’m not nice to the horrible bullying finnish girl i wont be given my visa. Shes made my time here miserable over the last 5 weeks. Cheers. Got to work even harder over the next 2 weeks whilst the boss is away on holiday, and this is the thanks i get? If i had another job lined up i would leave right now, see how they cope with no one to run the place.
If you hate the uk, hate its government, hate what it stands for, hate what it fights for, hate it so much you feel you can only express your shit ‘political’ or ‘religious’ view by killing an innocent man, then leave.
Just leave. Stop using our free health care, claiming our benefits, living in our houses, putting your children in our schools. Fuck off back to your own country.
I hope those disgusting animals get deported back to whatever hole they crawled out of and rot.
Rule Britannia! RIP to the poor man who lost his life so a couple of idiots could have their 15 minutes of fame on tv.
A barn is a sanctuary in a unsettled world, a sheltered place where life’s true priorities are clear. When you take a step back, it’s not just about horses — its about love, life, and learning. We honor our horses for their brave hearts, courage, and willingness to give. Indeed, horses have the hearts of warriors and often carry us into and out fields of personal battles. Those who know them understand how fully a horse can hold a human heart.
So I haven’t been in here for a while, mainly due to laziness…. Somewhat has happened in the last 6 weeks? Well I’m now a horse manager, which means being in charge of the horses and staff. It’s a great job and I’ve learnt so much since I have been here!
Horses - All the horses are still going well, got a new mare called Zoe who is the daughter of Zena. She’s only 3 and just starting to get ridden. Went for a bareback fun ride last night with ylva, Amanda and franzi. It was sooooo good!! We went up to a lookout and we had to canter the whole way up which was so much fun! And then we galloped across another paddock and the pony I rode, Splash, really went for it, it was such an adrenaline rush!
Tom - my lovely boyfriend came up a couple weeks ago and we went to the frankland islands on a day trip. It was beautiful, but unfortunately the sea was very rough and so snorkelling was a bit crap…. And it rained :( but we had a great time together. Only 6 weeks until I finish and he will be back up here again! We have planned to go to fitzroy island for my birthday, and stay in the luxurious resort for the Saturday night!!! It’s going to be amazing, just praying the weather is good! We have hired a campervan from the Monday until the following Sunday through Jucy rentals. It’s a bit expensive and a long drive, but it gives us more freedom to pick and choose what we want to see/do. We are heading down the east cost and stopping off to do 2 days sailing at the whitsundays island! We have booked a 2 day, 2 night boat tour with Oz Sail. Our boat is called avatar, and it’s a trimaran which is apparently very comfy to sail on - I hope so because I have started getting sea sick….. We got it at a good price - $314 instead of $514 each :) bargain! Reeeeaaaaallllllly hoping it is sunny the whole time because its winter there so it’s not going to be really hot. After that we will make our way to Brisbane, probably stopping at places like bundaberg and noosa. Then back to cold Melbourne…… But I’ll get to see Chester and enjoy the comforts of home again
Girls - so Clara and franzi have left already and Ylva is leaving soon :( it really sucks because we were a good group of friends. Amanda is still here which is good, I would be pretty lonely if she wasn’t. We have 2 new experienced staff, Anu and Abi. Who are Finnish and English. Abi is really nice, happy, easy going, great with the customers etc. I think she is a couple years older than me, she seems mature and capable. Anu on the other hand is a bitch. She has been here just over a week and from day 1 has been throwing her (considerable) weight around, telling everyone what to do and arguing back/making some smart ass comment whenever she is told to do something. I do not like her as I can’t stand arrogant people. It’s so frustrating trying to tell someone how to do the job when they always reply with “yes, I know” or “I was about to do that” unless you are telepathic/psychic you don’t know anything about the job or what I am going to say. The other day she wrote loads of shit on Facebook, “the horse farm would be so much better if people went around with a smile on their face. You are a dick, everyday you ruin my day. Long live the horse girls. Long live the shit talking. Long live the rivalry. Long live the mature women” firstly talking shit about someone on Facebook is the most immature thing you can do, so grow the fuck up. I went to the manager and showed her what she said and they had a talk with her. When they sat us down to talk in person, she denied that the facebook stuff was about me and said she was talking about one of the horses here. BULLSHIT. I should have asked her which horse, but instead I called her a liar. And an immature arrogant girl. She was sat their with a face like a smacked arse, which I now come to think is her natural face, almost crying saying she has no problem….. Clearly you do, and as for crying, you are 3 years older than me and meant to be a “mature woman” so grow the fuck up. Hopefully she gets over herself, because I want my next 6 weeks to be enjoyable.
Anyway enough with that bitch! I hope the next 6 weeks go by fast, I love it here but I’m so excited for my road trip with Tom!! I really hope I can get a job when I get back to Melbourne….. Looking forward to updating my cv with all my new skills and a recent Ozzie reference!
Me - so since coming here I have lost about 10kgs, and I want to lose a lot more! So glad that different people cook every night as it forces me to eat healthy. I’ve started working out too, just running and doing exercises from my Davina fitness app. I want to look my best when Tom comes as we will be on the beach/sailing/snorkelling etc. want to look fiiiiit!! My hair hasn’t grown as much as I hoped haha, it’s gone a bit of a strange colour in the sun too. My feet are a lot better, not so sore or aching.
It’s been raining for the past week, hoping it starts to get sunny from now on as the paddocks are so muddy and slippery. And my clothes are always covered in crap at the end of the day. Plus I want to keep my tan topped up!
Urgh some people. So happy to be out of melbourne/bitch central.
