Back in the land of the living

Thanks to everyone who left a comment or emailed me after my last post. I'm back at work now & the dogs returned home yesterday after 11 days in kennels. Both have lost a lot of muscle & Oscar looks like a shaggy mutt but I'll get them back up to scratch soon. I'm gutted as I'm going to have to start my running from scratch again but not yet as I'm tired after half an hours walk at the moment.

Some knitting has been happening over the past week:

but not a lot progress on this:

I've been spoilt rotten over the past couple of days due to a couple of parcels arriving. Part of one was a purchase of a Goknits sock bag from Socktopus but there was more included which was a wonderful surprise. However the photos have yet to be taken so you'll have to wait I'm afraid.

So as a thank you for Alice at Socktopus a photo as promised of one of the trees in our garden. It has the most gorgeous purpley red leaves & looks absolutely stunning in the sunshine.

The yarn you're using for your socks is very pretty.

Nice to see you back, glad you're feeling better, had been wondering how you were. Take it easy on the running - yes, a setback is annoying, but your body will tell you how much you can do.
I've plateau-ed a bit on the third week, and am wondering if I'll ever make it to week 4!
