The clocks have gone back, it’s dark when you wake and dark again before 5 pm. Spending time out in the daylight is now limited to weekends for us working gals! The horses are in at night and turnout is becoming fairly limited. We’re making up ten haynets on a Sunday morning and buckets of horse feed are stacked up in the feed room. Yes that’s right, Winter has well and truly arrived. And we’re not going to lie, we’re feeling a bit gloomy about it!
But on the bright side we love the Winter fashion, getting out our warm boots, our favourite coats and not worrying about bikini bodies! Plus there’s still fun to be had with the horses. Once you’ve braved the frosty early mornings it’s a lovely feeling being on your horse in the beautiful winter sunshine and feeling nice and toasty underneath all your warm layers. We especially love giving our horses a hug under their rugs each evening to say goodnight.
Yet when we get home after a long day at work, having gone to the yard to tuck up the horses, the darkness and cold weather seems to make us feel uninspired to do anything! Maybe that’s not a bad thing as we all need time to rest as this time of year can be a little hectic after all. So sit down, relax and unwind (when possible) this winter time. You’ll probably need a few treats to help create the right ambience! If you haven’t got the luxury of a fire, then a bit of mood lighting can give a lovely cosy feel to a home and if you’re a horse lover our new arrivals may appeal.
The Felt Horse String Lights contains 20 felt horses in two soft shades of brown, complimenting most household decoration/ colour schemes. The felt horses light up with warm white LEDs which do not get hot. A pretty way to add subtle lighting to your house on a winter’s evening whilst you cosy up and watch the TV.
As an alternative the Horse Colour Changing LED Mobile will add some subtle lighting to any room you choose to relax in – perhaps a lounge, conservatory or bedroom area. This hanging mobile will add some beautiful glowing light and colour to any space in your home. The acrylic horse shapes light up and change colour independently through a range of shades which we find really relaxing. Kids will love them too so perfect if you have young ones that need to also unwind after a long day at school.
So hang these up in your countryside home, switch on your favourite programme and treat yourself to something nice for dinner. Brighten up the winter with a bit of time for you!
