Its International Hermit Stitching Weekend time...

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry for not being around for a while, so far this year it has been very tough.  We found out on Monday that my Mother-in-Law has got breast cancer, she has started an aggressive treatment of Chemotherapy.  It has shaken up the whole family but we are doing our best to support her - she is a fit and strong women and I am praying she will beat this.  Please add mama to your prays.

This weekend is International Hermit Stitching Weekend - please pop over and visit 'Joy' at 'Random Ramblings'.  I am going to try and complete some more of Sadness of Gaia.

This month I completed my first 10K Night Run and loved it - it was so cold -10 but I completed it in New Personal Best Time of 1:03:18.  

Now my next race is a Half Marathon (13.1 Miles or 21.5K) in Krakow on 23rd March - I am dedicating this race to Mama.  I am hoping to raise so money to send Mama on a 'Spa Day' after she has completed her treatment.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend stitching and spending time with your loved ones xx
