Happy New Year to everyone!

Here we are at the start of 2008 and it's traditional to make lots of 'resolutions' to which one struggles to adhere so I'm not going to! Instead I'm giving myself some more flexible goals and one of those is to blog more frequently and include more general stuff about what I get up to (I have so many hobbies and interests that it seems a shame to miss them out). This morning when I looked out of the bedroom window I noticed a little visitor in the horses' field - a sheep had found a way through the hedge from the adjoining field and was grazing quite happily with Esther looking on! I haven't bothered to get him back as he's in no danger and the ponies don't seem to mind him being there.

I did a pleasant 6 mile run this morning along the lanes and wished I'd taken the camera with me as I saw 2 newborn lambs. Awwwwh! I shall try to remember to take it with me in future as there's always something of interest.

I'm feeling the urge to knit again, thank goodness, but I've also got some crochet and cross stitch projects on the go so my time will be spread out as usual.

I also need to plan out my fund-raising and racing for the year. I will definitely be raising money for the Alzheimer's Research Trust again as my main charity plus there will be other individual events for different charities. I'm running the London marathon again and will most probably be doing my knitting too as the publicity was fantastic (even though actually doing it was jolly hard - the knitting that is, not the running!!!!!!!).

Happy New Year, Susie. Here's to 2008 being a year of good health, fabulous knitting, crocheting & cross stitching projects and another successful fundraiser/challenge.

"Pleasant 6 mile run"? You're my hero! It's bitterly, cold here and seeing your green grass makes me envious. It looks wonderful there.
