4 days until R4L

The time has just slipped by since I first decided to do the Race 4 Life and it's on Sunday. I've been a bit lax with my walking recently as I've been so busy in the garden - well that's my excuse! Anyway I did an hour walk followed by a quick swim this morning and I'm really suffering for it now! Never mind I'll be OK on the day. I'll let you all know how it went. I've also managed to raise £175 so that's really good when I started off aiming for £100.

The garden looked beautiful, then we had the thunderstorms and the flowers took a bit of a bashing and I'm busy going round picking out the weeds that have flourished. It doesn't seem to matter how many I pull out there are still several more round the corner!

I've made progress with my black and white patchwork to make a portfolio bag, I'll take a photo when it's further on in the process. My Blue bracelet looks great and my log vessel is looking at me saying, finish me, finish me! The design is finished for the knitt to felt bag and all I have to do is print it out tomorrow - note put that in my diary! So doing my prioritising was a good idea, it certainly focused my mind on what I should do first.

Two of my friends are in hospital - just found out today - one has had a mini stroke and the other is having a cancer op tomorrow. What a shock my best wishes go out to them both and hope all is well.

Night all
