FLM day

Its FLM day and for the last 4 years I have been down there for it - running or supporting.

I decided a long time ago that I wouldn't go down this year - it is a tiring day just supporting and I have a full teaching day until 5.30 on a Monday, so it was not a good idea.

So I watched the early part of the race while ironing. And of course I want to do it again now. So I've renewed my club membership, to increase my chances of getting a place, just got to get out there and start plodding now.

I'll let you know.

I have been knitting:

These little chaps were knitted to fit Kinder eggs, so each of the Beanzes had one for Easter.

no running, some knitting, much stressing

A long time since I blogged.

My work-life balance is all wrong. During term time the working day is too long to do anything and at the weekends I am too tired and have become very slothful. As a result I have put on weight too.
Its now the Easter holidays and I have frittered away this first week, still no exercise apart from the odd walk.

I have managed a little knitting - some more mystery blanket squares:

Others are on my flickr pages.
I have made various other things but find it difficult to focus on a bigger project while I am at work.
As a result of this lack of balance I have decided to make a move and will be going back into the curriculum development world in September. I shall not be freelance this time, but full time in one post. For the first time I will be working in an office regularly. I hope I can cope!
I am hoping this will give me a better structure to my day and week. As a result I plan to do more exercise and more knitting.
