It's still dark outside!

I'm going walking... at 7 am.  It's a FBG Social walk, we still have not started the Urban Challenge yet.

I'm not a morning person, certainly not getting up at 6 am!
But.. I have to start somewhere, and it's nice and COOL in the early mornings.

I stayed up too late last night, sorting out emails and photos... documenting the saga of the camera and lens.
I may need it at some point if things go pear shaped.  
I just have this sinking feeling my camera is stuffed ... and the insurance company has already paid out in full on my claim.
Fingers crossed it all ends up OK.

This is short as I really need to get me sneakers on, and get outta here ... walkies await!


Well... I did 2.5 kms this morning, so kinda half a walk!  There were about 7 of us, 6 'regulars' and one new lady.  I felt like utter crap getting up that early and going walking, but once we were actually walking (and yakking) I felt better.

I MIGHT even be tempted to do it again... maybe. lol

Now, I am going to get back to those chair cushions.  I reckon I might get them done today after all... as I did quite a bit on them last night after dinner.

3.21 pm:  And I just woke up from a nap!  I am NOT a morning person... that's the last time I'm getting up early for a walk!
I went to bed at 12.30 am, woke at 5 am with leg cramps and that was it.  Knackered by 2 pm!

Old and cranky.

But, I haven't been completely useless all day:

ABOVE:  I got all 8 chair cushions done!

And I'm working on a runner for the table top too.  That will be finished by the end of the day.


ABOVE: Griffin took a 'selfie' yesterday.  Coco looks like she's thinking "What the hell is he doing?"

Well... it's the end of the day.  Stew arrived home with the loaner camera from Canon, so I'm up and running again camera-wise.
We had pizza for dinner... cos I was feeling lazy.

I'm now watching Coronation Street, then going to bed early.  It's been a busy day.  Got lots of sewing done eventually.


  1. Enjoy. And good on you! I am not a morning person!
