Right, lets see if my computer decides to freeze on me mid post………last entry I’d managed to get most of it written when the PC decided to throw a wobbler and not do as it was told…..stupid machine!
Where was I??  Well last week I started Boxercise classes – goodness knows why I thought it would be a good idea…..but I signed up and went along and really enjoyed it.  Was hard work, but definitely worth it, was feeling the effects still on Saturday and the class was on Thursday! 

We also went for a walk around Ellon Ellon Circular Walk Information

It was a really lovely walk and so lovely as it’s the area my husband grew up in so he could tell me all about bits and pieces and point out where he used to go play etc.  The dogs certainly seemed to like it, and it was nice to spend time with my in-laws as they’d just come back from a week away in Spain. 

The Knitting Group at work is going well, we’ve got a good 8 or so people interested, and others coming up with fab ideas for charities and projects to look into.  We’ve got a good collection of hats and mittens to donate to the local maternity hospital, as well as some charities that accept handmade goods.  I’m really pleased with the contributions and the eager people wanting to join in. 
Can’t seem to get the pictures to upload at the moment……but we have some lovely hats in a variety of colours and patterns – everyone is desperate to create something different from the same pattern and to make their own stamp on the items – it’s touching to see the pride everyone takes in their work.

We seem to be having a heat wave here at the moment, its been in the 20ish degrees and slightly lower since Saturday – pretty unheard of here!  Usually we’ve got rain, grey skies and well gales! ahahaha up until a few months ago we had regular snow showers and weather chaos!  I know it won’t continue, but it’s lovely to see the sun again!

Must get some pictures uploaded when I can of all the lovely items we have to donate to the hospital and to charity.
Right, back to the finance lectures……..*yawn*
