10k - yay

I did it, i did it i ran 10k....Ben's watch broke so he doesn't think he's run it...but mine showed 10k and i ran an extra 500 meters just to be sure that it was definitely 10k. In my view target achieved...another new years resolution to tick off (as well as my visiting the dentist last week...filings fixed and i'm good for another 5 years...erm i mean 6 months).
Yay and you know it wasn't that bad..i could have run some more at the i just feel like sleeping
so that's 6 miles odd; i'm almost a quater of a way to a marathon, and over a fifth of the way. Yippee, zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Knitted bag

ohhps i almost forgot to blog my it is - lined with some old trouser material and knitted with some wool taken from my grandma's stash.
oh and a little phone cosy i made for my phone


We bought my new baby home today - the lovely pashley sonnet bliss - isn't it pretty!

I'm very excited but slightly worried about riding up the hill outside our house. Plus someone at work got their seat stolen the other day so I'm a little bit scared of the scallies of oxford taking a fancy to to begin with it might be a ride to work and back and save the cycling to work visits for another time.
oh and the reworked cape - here's a different picture - I like it much more now the collar has been removed and i've added an extra panel at the front - it's a bit wonky i know but i kinda like it

Run, Philly, Run

Yep, running is back on our agenda...i've even bought the slick black running leggings and a sports bra - and it must be doing something cos i managed to run 8.5km on Thursday - the 10k isn't so out of sight.

It's a bit of a commitment at 3 days a week, but i'm trying to stick to it and moving my social nights to a strict Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
Half marathon is the goal by november - no race planned as yet but it's exciting.

On the sewing front i've re-worked my cape, and i'm quite pleased with it now - photo's to follow. I've also made the coolest little clutch bag which I'm a little bit in love with - I just need to get my camera out. The camera will definitely come out tomorrow for the arrival of my new Pashley bicycle. I'm so excited - oohh maybe I'll do a photo on the bike, wearing my cape and holding my clutch (not sure riding and carrying a clutch bag are compatible but I can just pop it in my basket). he he

In addition to all this i've visited the dentist (one of my new years resolutions for this year), and bought some new material for a new pair of trousers for bed, a thick woolen cape for me, and a plaid dress - i've signed up for the re-fashion wardrobe challenge for 2 months and I'm starting to panic.
Photo's to follow soon
