Well what a brill weekend. I managed to spend no money and some how managed not to do much knitting! (I know that is not a good thing but my wee body needed to have a real break) So I did lots of just organising my kitchen and stash and sewing / button box. All jobs I feel a wee bit smug about. lol.

I am back at the dreaded weight watchers and have had a good week so far. Not many blips and a couple of really good saying no to naughty choices...(the slimmer me is in there I just need to find her).

So with this new found committment I have had a far few extra walks. Poor Red is a wee bit lame will need to give him a few less walks. I have been along to a new class called Restorative Yoga and really was amazed at how happy I felt to be there. Jude is a lovely tutor and her hubby doing the stretches alongside made some nice eye candy for all of us. Hope neither her or my D.H. read this blog or I could be in trouble. I also managed to do the dog thing with my toes tucked under it wasn't a strain and she worked us up to it so that is good. The relaxation was brill and I could have stayed for longer. I also liked the chanting at the end om and shanti was really lovely and the male voices really do vibrate.

So got up this morning and body feels a bit well there. Not sore but definately there. So that is good.

The two knitting groups over this side I go to are going really well. Mondays more mature group are very interesting to listen too learning so much about how things happened in the area over the last 60+years. The Tuesday group well that goes from strength to strength. Our member who lives in the States was missed but she will be back again probably in January. Great fun was had when the cheese scones came through straight from the oven and no I didn't have one SAINT SANDY is how I should be known from now on lol....

I am now trying my first lace pattern following a chart..... Well perhaps that should be I have frogged my 7th attempt just now and written on ravelry for help... If it doesn't get sorted soon I will just give up again....bah humbug.

On the most exciting front I am only 5 days from my first spinning class wow I am so excited.

Oho D.H. arrived and wants the computor.

Will get back when I can.

Remember, you are NOT a proper knitter until you have to frog your knitting back at least 5 times! lol
Glad you are feeling a bit better - Yoga is fab! Look forward to seeing you soon.
