When I've heard that Pre IB can help with the exams for future Rasz IB students I couldn't wait. I knew that I need to see candidates:) I was accepted for the second day - the English papers. For the few hours on Sunday I was responsible for ,,locker room" where candidates left their things. It was quite fun to see those students just as nervous as I was last year. I hope i will be able to show up on the oral exams and work in the ,,Eden" :)

Few days ago we went to the Jaroszówka to compete in first eventing in this season :) Lady took part in CIC 1* class. We've started quite well - our dressage was judged very harshly but it was probably our best test ever :) Unfortunately the second performance - parcour - left us with additional 8 penalty points for knockdowns. Despite this we were positively looking forward to the second day. The cross didn't look difficult and I was sure that we won't have any problems - oh, how wrong I had been :) The first part, actually, elapsed without any problems. But then on the 9th fence Lady... forgot about her hind legs. She ,,jumped" and hanged on the caber. We were both confused and didn't know what to do! Fortunately she found a way to get out. I checked whether everything is okey wi and we cantered to the next fence ;)

This story has a happy ending - we managed to took 3rd place in in the first elimination of PP :

I don't have any photos, but here is the video from our dressage test :)

As usual, my creativity is completed in the kitchen. This time I've made more meals and froze them. It costed time but now it is extremely helpful. Here is the list of the meals I've made: curry prawns, sour-sweet prawn, turkey meatballs, chicken with dried plums, bolognese sauce and buckwheat with vegetables. Quite a lot :)

​Last visit in hospital will probably stay in my mind for a long time. We've talked with a guy who has not only lost his 17 years old son, but also has a brain cancer. His inner strength was amazing, he was trying to stay positive which clearly was enormously difficult. It was an honor for me to met such an inspirational person.

My class was responsible for organizing the school breakfast today, so I helped a little bit :) I've prepared one of my favorite salads - baby spinach mixed with feta cheese and cranberry, topped with nuts and honey-mustard dressing. Im assuming it was quite good, as nothing was left... ;)

As I'm still trying to eat healthy I've made my version of baked chicken. It contains a lot of good proteins and healthy carbs, is full of vitamins and minerals and most importantly - it is delicious. It was juicy and full of flavor, as it was packed with olives, sun-dried tomatoes and cheese. I decided to eat it with the crispy-baked potatoes and spinach. Yummy :)

As winter is almost over, it's time for us to leave the indoor competitions and begin starting outside. We decided to end this season in Poczernin, near Warsaw. I've competed in 120-135 classes, where Lady jumped really good. She was so scopey, that even few people wanted to buy her ;) As she is priceless for me, of course the answer was no. At the same time Struś jumped 130-140 classes under my trainer and managed to be second in Middle Round. We are both very happy with results :)

Few days ago I went to the hospital with Zuzia. Unfortunately I was really tired (as I had been sleeping for 3 hours) and we didn’t managed to visit a lot of patients. I thought that nothing interested was about to happen and we were just about to leave when we’ve bumped into a guy, who once has a horse. And that’s where it all started ;) I think that was my longest visit in one room – we were talking and talking! Horses, hoofs, saddles, again horses, hoofs, saddles… For me – an endless subject. I’m really happy that I’ve met this guy!

Grilled chicken with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes - my tomorrows lunch :)

Yummy and healthy as hell ;) Chicken was just grilled until done - I even can't tell how long it took, maybe few minutes on fry pan? Although it is delicious and very flavorsome - I've used some fresh herbs and it paid back. We don't need recipes for meals like that - it's almost impossible to ruin something here, so you can have fun and improvise a bit :)
