Tyler was eager to have a ride on Mate, Bruce's horse so we all trooped outside and everything was going well until Annabel lost her balance slightly when getting on and accidentally gave Mate a nudge with her foot on his rump which made him jump forward and swing round, unseating Annabel. It quickly became clear that her wrist was probably broken so a trip to the medical center was organised, by which time we had to head for Invers in order to make it back in time for tea at my Mum's with the my side of the family.
Present opening was followed by another delicious meal of turkey, ham, crayfish salads and Mum's fabulous plum duff with custard and cream (and the odd glass of wine), and finished off with the opening of Mum's home-made crackers, all tailored to the specific person.
By that time, we were exhausted (Chris especially, having not yet caught up on his sleep from previous night shift) so we headed home to get some much-needed sleep.
