It is now 2008. I can confirm that the weird ballet wrap thing has indeed been re-created...in the form of two scarfs given to my ma and ma-in-law for christmas...the thing wasn't right for me and they made much nicer scarves. I wish there was extra I could have kept for myself.
I also re-knit the beret..it's now too big but so much cooler...photo's to follow
The running thing is going ok.. a bit stop start but plans are ahead for 5k and 10k runs in the coming months which is a good sign.
It's been Ben's golden week this week which ended in disaster again with the flight to Madrid being cancelled cos of bad weather and us both not knowing what to do with ourselves for the rest of the week. I had a bit of a revelation yesterday whilst shopping in Birmingham (an experience not to be repeated). Why am i so keen on looking for other things....dresses, furniture, places to live, shoes.....when i already live in the best place, have some really nice clothes and really have no need for anything....why am i always looking for the next thing, why can't i just enjoy what i've got - which is far better than most things out there anyway! what is it that i'm looking for?
