Taking a break

I'm going to be a bit quiet on here for the next month or so, as we finally go away on honeymoon.  I've been looking forward to this trip all year and now it is finally here.
The idea of no knitting or making for a month is a bit weird, but I'm sure we'll be so busy I won't have time to miss it.  Of course I'll be keeping a journal and my sketch book will be coming too.  Once we're back you'll be able to read all about our adventures on my other blog - Not all who wander are lost.

So in the mean time, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I'll be back in 2015.

My first published words

I've always wanted to be a writer.  Even as a little girl I was writing little stories.  I'd still love to be a writer but now I understand how much time and effort I would need to put in, (time I just don't have right now) and so mostly I just write little stories to amuse myself or read out at the writers group, but nothing I would ever expect to be published.
Then came a request on one of the running forums I visit asking for 100 words on 'how running makes me feel' and some other subjects.  I love running and would encourage everyone to give it ago, so I couldn't help myself and submitted a paragraph about it.
This was months ago and I'd forgotten all about it when this arrived in the post!  My first published work.  I can't help but be a little proud.
