Well, yes OK, it may not be a huge amount of snow but down here in the South East of England it is quite a rare event and even more so in April! This photo was taken when I started updating my blog and the one below just as I finished.
I got my run out of the way much earlier and it was soon over as it was just an 8 miler 'cos it's the London Marathon next weekend. I won't be doing much running or knitting ahead of the big event as I need all my strength. I've been getting bad twinges across my neck and shoulders from knitting and crochet and I asked Mary Massage Lady to concentrate on that when I went for my pre-marathon massage the other day. She also had a good old poke around in my right hamstring and ITB -OUCH is all you need to know!!!
Here's the latest on my jumper. I'm 1/2 way through the second repeat of the circle motif and I find it really absorbing. I expect there may be a few ripping moments when I get to the steeks but I'll worry about that when I get there.
This next week will no doubt include some more publicity and media events. I just wish at least one of the photos of me could make me look OK! What the heck - it's all great publicity for the Alzheimer's Research Trust. I just wonder what on earth the weather will be like this year though - it was baking hot last year and knitting was really difficult with sweaty hands.
I just had to add this photo from this evening. I just looked out the bedroom window to check on the horses and the sun was shedding a glorious pink glow everywhere. That's Kizzy trying to munch the grass through the snow, bless!
