Two weeks!! Two Weeks into January already. Can you believe it?

Well The first week was all calming down into the new year after the hub bub that is Christmas and the New Year. I always find that week a bit demotivating and slushy.

The second week is when I start to feel come on lets change the world, don't worry that soon goes.

But over the last couple of weeks, my knitting Mojo has really been playing nice. I started a podcast and for anyone interested you can see the second one here. I mistakenly deleted the first one. DOH!!!

I am amazed by the amount of people who have started to comment and watch. Its easier for me as I am just sat talking to a video and not having to cope with face to face, those that know what has been going on in my world the last year or so will totally get that.

So what have I been upto this week. in a word Work!  I am struggling with my shifts and after a member of staff returns from sick leave, my bosses are going to look into condensing my hours over less days. I know I have to work (bills etc.) but it is a constant battle to get out the door, but to be honest it is like that even if I have arranged to go out to town with the girls, food shopping anything. I HAVE to make myself do it. I enjoy it whilst I am doing it, then as soon as I get home I don't want to do it ever again and the whole circle thing begins again. I have been offered eight hours in a yarn shop, which I am going to take as that is a happy place for me. No teaching or classes just serving and enjoying. See trying to get back to me. So working more hours over less days. Means more pennies for treats and less days I have to work - get out, 4 days work and 3 days off together, I can chill and have pj days if I wish. Rather than 2in 1 out 3 in 1 out like now.

This week saw me bite the bullet again re eating correctly and exercising, the treadmill has been used and I returned to the gym for the first time last night. Elaine was there to guide me and make me focus on her, as the gym was way busier than we thought it would be (january, of course it would be. Silly Moo). I did have a wobble when I was struggling to do the sit ups, and my eyes filled up but I managed not to cry.  The I can's and negative image of myself still win out sometimes. I is going kick its butt in to touch one day I swear.

so thats me for now, Chat soon xx

Saturday 3rd Jan

I am so looking forward to a day off tomorrow

Yesterday I managed to do  week 2 day 1 of couch to 5k, I am taking running right back to basics and the healthy eating. I am undoing previous good work and being very negative - just sitting around. I also managed to stay within ww points yesterday too.

I also had to go to work last night instead of the afternoon due to staff sickness. Really did not like working as I work in the little village shop / post office in Tamerton Foliot. The Horrendous event on New years has left the village shocked.

I know nothing more than what is being reported, but the whole village seems to be in mourning.
 I hope all families find peace in their hearts over time.

A new shawl was cast on. Christmas cards taken away.
Not much else was done yesterday,
I hope you all had a good one.

Well Yesterday was the first day of a brand new year, which means 365 blank pages to fill with memories and fun. 

So We spent the morning walking Oscar at Bovisands beach.

 I Love the way the wind blows through his coat.

 Guarding his ball and standing proud.
   This one just makes me laugh, big wimp running away from the waves xx

We then went home to a lovely warm bowl of pea and ham soup.

Watched a bit of the Italian job, a bit of Ben Hur and knitted the afternoon away.

I finished my Meret hat

it is blocking on a dinner plate at the moment.

Yay first finished project of 2015 xx

So this is 2015 and Podcasting

Posted by tracy watkiss at 09:34 0 comments
Well Happy New year everyone.


I do hope those of you who went out celebrating are safe and happy.( Early reports in from my Friends in Tamerton are not good as there was an incident around the pubs which appear to have related in a fatality. So sad! Hoping it is just rumours and grapevine).

We decided to go the quiet night in route, See this year in quietly and calmly - hoping that will encourage it to remain that way.

Any who!

I am trying out something new today.

A Podcast.

I have become quite addicted to watching these since being a user of the Knitting site Ravelry.

So thought I would have a play. At the moment it contains a lot of knitting related stuff but may show more makes along the way.

Here is my first episode: No 1 : Carry on podcasting. (stupid thing starts from seven minutes in but you can slide it back to the beginning)

I have added show links/ notes below just in case you would like to try any of the patterns etc.

If you are not into handicrafts it will be a boring watch for you. Some of my Mords get Wuddled.
and I do go into my own world.
