A major push on my Cascading Leaves Shawl brought it to three quarters done last night. I am perfectly happy to admit to feeling cheesed off with it now and I have been casting about for some light relief. Then I checked in with William’s blog… and decided to take my lead from him. I am knuckling down and focusing and I intend to push this thing to the finish line. I’m now at 80% and after I have had this coffee, I’ll knit to 90%…

William won his race, having run 805Km in seven days. He missed most of his targets, but did set new age group records for his group (Male, over 55 years.)

Sadly the target that he got least close to beating was his fund-raising target. As a cancer survivor, he was raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. His target of £1,000 seemed very modest, given the amount of effort that he was putting in.

Amount raised so far? Just £135.

Eight Hundred and Five Kilometers. On his own two feet. In seven days.

One hundred and thirty-five quid.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
