|Over halfway up the foot at least.|
I've cut out the lining for my polonaise, but got no further due to a lack of space in the sewing room. As a result I think I need to stop my sewing for a bit so I can find my sewing room. So, there may not be a finished item for the next challenge.
I've started the C25K again and finished week 3; really enjoying the zombie version. Only problem is I've got one sore foot, T reckons it's because I'm not used to running; I don't know what caused it but it's bloody annoying! Still going to continue though; I'd love to be able to run for 5k's without stopping. Should be easier once I'm over this cold too, running does knock loose some of the crap in my lungs which is definitely good. One question though, in what universe is it fair to get hit with hayfever while suffering from a cold?
Garage is now awaiting the blocklayer who should be starting on 13th January; then the actual build of the metal and wood parts will start on 27th January; we'll be all done by the end of February and then the driveway can be laid. We'll be lifting the old cobbles and using them to make raised beds and a few other bits and pieces; a friend wants some too which will mean we'll have less to find homes for after it's all done.

We're getting to that point in the year when I start thinking about what I want to achieve next year and have come up with a few things I want to concentrate on.
1. Fitness - C25K is a big part of this, but I want to improve my diet as well; no point in that till Christmas is over but will continue the running, even on Christmas day.
2. Financial - I want to continue saving money, I'm currently saving up for a new sewing machine and also a cutting thing for T. Also will be wanting to make a big dent in the mortgage we'll have once the building is finished and of course some work that we need to do on the house (repaint roof, replace shower) which will be expensive. Ultimately I'd like to double glaze too, but that'll be nasty expensive.
3. Crafting - I want to make this the year of "craft from stash". There may be exceptions; for a start if anyone gives me a voucher I can use that, also if something I'm making needs an item I don't have in stash I can get that too (for example if a zipper is needed and I don't have one in the right colour or one that's long enough). But no more buying things to add to stash, if it's not going to be used right away I don't buy it.
I think that's enough for the moment, if I have too many plans nothing will get done, but 3 seems like a good number to me. It's the number my gran always considered lucky too.
