Anybody there?  LOL
Just checking in to say I'm still here, keeping busy, though not much crafty happening.
My one offering is the back of a little knitted cardigan in a pretty variegated yarn. It's for baby Freya of course. The colours are a little washed out here, it's much prettier in real life.
Let me see, what else do I have to report?
I've been away from the island on a three day course for work. I passed my exam and I'm now qualified at level 3 CIEH Health and Safety. Following another short course I'm also allowed to present Disability Equality Training, promoting and advocating equality for people with disabilities.
I'm working away at some e-learning courses set up through work, I can take those at my own pace.
Tony and I have joined a Torture chamber gym!! So we're in there three times a week. The first few sessions were torture, but I'm starting to enjoy it, maybe it will be even more fun once the results become more obvious. We've been told to increase our calorie intake at lunch time. So I've been busy making little pies and cookies for our lunch boxes. And of course I've had to amend our evening meals too, they got a little smaller. LOL
Otherwise, I'm just enjoying relaxing, I've read a few books and watched some movies and done just a little knitting of course.
Take care all. Thanks for stopping to read.

Good to hear from you again, Congratulations on passing your exam. Have fun at the torture chamber, I am sure it won't be long before you reap the benefits

Hi Lou, nice to see you back. I've not been blogging much either - far too busy at work at the moment!! Well done with the course and all the best with the gym, I'm sure your efforts will pay off!!

Jenny said...

It is so nice to have you blogging again, I must admit that I was a little worried about you. Welcome back to Blogland and good luck at the gym. Are you both wearing trendy matching lycra outfits?

So nice to hear from you again and I'm glad to hear that you are having a fun and relaxing time. Please tell me that you are NOT wearing lycra! (I'm sure it's not safe. I think it lowers your IQ significantly whilst it's on. Just look at all those crazy things bike riders, gymnasts, divers etc do for proof!)

Love the knitting. Isn't it amazing how a photo can so little represent the original item!

Well done on the added qualifaction. It is such worthwhile work you do.
Take it gently with the exercise; you want it to be all benefit without any injury.
Cute knitting.

Janice said...

I can see why you have been a little too busy to be blogging. Well done on your new qualifications. Have fun (ha ha) at the gym.

Hello. Yes, I'm still here. Good to have you back.

Congrats on the exam passes, and joining the gym - can't see me ever doing that, altho I know I should.

Lynda said...

The knitting is beautiful - I especially like the frilly edge. Good luck at the gym!
