...... for ducks!! It was the Norwich Half Marathon today and Mr JK was taking part. We kept our eyes on the weather forecast all week, telling ourselves that it was bound to change for the better. But for once, the forecasters got it right! Heavy and persistent rain, all day!
swam ran his way round the course in 2 and a quarter hours; to say I am proud of him is an understatement! He's already booked his place on his second half marathon next March! Getting out of the car park afterwards proved challenging. The rain had turned it into a complete mud bath, and a great many cars needed a helping hand to get moving!
I received a lovely parcel from Cathy this week. Florence was very keen to assist me with opening it. I think she knew that there was a little something inside especially for her from Cathy's two cats, Mack and Lucy.
Cathy had knitted Flo a mouse and stuffed it with cat nip. Very quickly, Flo was playing with her new toy!
There were lots of lovely treats in the box including a rather stunning crescent shaped beaded shawl. I would never had thought about choosing orange as a colour for myself, but I love it!
I have made some progress with my sock knitting this week - sock number one from my Halloween Roxy socks is finished, and sock number two is under way. With any luck, I will have a completed pair to show you next weekend. xxx
