Cute cards

I had two Christmas cards that made me smile:

This stripey cartoon sheep looking like a mint humbug.

This sweet little knitted reindeer.

This is published by Mint Publishing where I found that the reindeer was knitted by the girls from the Harborough Ladies knitting circle who seem to have produced a whole range of knitted characters for all sorts of cards.

What fun and how very enterprising of them!

Now we're into the New Year my training has started to take over. No more alcohol until after the Brighton marathon in April (crikey!) and my training schedule is starting to look pretty darned serious (gulp!). Last weekend I ran 6 miles on Saturday and 12 miles on Sunday and this weekend will be 7 and 14 miles respectively.

I'm a good way into the front of Two and I like how it's turning out so far.

Mm, humbugs! I love 'em.

Also quite love that knitted reindeer, and agree it's very enterprising.

No alcohol until April?! Crikey is right!
