PAINFUL EX­PE­RI­ENCE

THURS­DAY

Spirit and Destiny - - A Week In The Life -

While my cleaner, Claire, is whizzing round my kitchen in her Marigolds, I get a clear vi­sion in my mind of a bay horse stamp­ing its foot in pain. ‘Claire, your horse… he’s suf­fer­ing with that lower front left leg,’ I say. She stares at me wide-eyed for a few sec­onds, then says, ‘He has re­ally bad arthri­tis and that leg is the worst.’ Then she gasps. ‘Oh good­ness, we didn’t give him his painkiller last night!’ She texts her hus­band, who goes straight to the sta­bles to give the horse his painkiller. Job done!
