My brain is racing and I can’t decided what to tell you first. I feel like I have not checked in here in so long, it’s only been 5 days but it feels like so much longer as so much has been going on in my little part of the world and I’m not even sure where to start.
Maybe with a little confession. . .
Since I started the one a day project my exercise routine has decreased steadily to be at the rate of zero now. Now I’m not blaming my one a day but I seem to have replaced my exercise time with knitting time which for the brain is great but for the waistline is not so crash hot. And with the holiday seasons just behind us I find myself needing to get back into the exercise routine. And so this morning I hopped on our treadmill, yes we own a treadmill and still I don’t find the time for a quick 30 minute brisk walk. But I’m sure you’ll agree the call of the crochet hook or knitting needles is strong and sometimes can not be resisted. Well today I did it and I not only did 40mins but I knitted a hexipuff while I did this.
This sudden realisation of needing to get back into the exercise has not as many of you might be thinking been brought about by a new years resolution, but by the fact we just booked a holiday for our family to the sunny state and so in 4 weeks I will require to be swim wear ready so I need to start whipping my but now. I can’t wait to be in the lovely sunny state soaking up the surf and sand and as such this has become my inspiration. Wish me luck.
Have you all been busy one a daying. I haven’t made one a day we have just been having such a lovely time with Mr C holidays with us we have just been enjoying our days with at home and I have also been working on my piece for the yarn bomb event being held in Melbourne on the 22nd of January. I have been granny stripping away using all my lovely new yarn I got.
I’m zipping up the stripes with utter enjoyment and I’m bouncing out of my seat to choose the next colour, I’m so enjoying granny stripping again It truly is so much fun all those little treble clusters in a row. But along with this I have managed to increase my number of hexipuffs; so here we go
So on December 13th 2011 I had
Today I have
I still need
To be made in
I’m almost scared to work this number out
Phew I’m still in my goal I have no idea how though. I feel like I should be so much further behind.
But by looks of things I will have myself one of these by the 27th of September 2012
If you haven’t already, knick over to Carole’s and check out all the other one a days
and I will back when I have a little more time with more of those lovely bunts I received in the mail. For now though I am going to go and give a little princess who is giggling behind me lots of cuddles
