Yes yes, I have been quite absent lately. But surely, there are plenty of blogs around to keep you guys occupied, so I am not feeling too bad :)
There have been some major changes over here the last couple of months or so. Some good, and some abit sad but nothing that is not life. Let's just get the sad part over with. I do no longer own a horse. My dear Slim is grazing in the heavens now, after a rather sudden passing. It is always sad to say farewell to faithful friends, but as I said; it is part of life. We had lots of fun, and I cherish all the good memories. He was a good little horse, and I'll miss him.
After this rather big change in my life, I found myself with lots of extra time on my hands, and lacking an outdoor hobby. So I decided to take up running! I have always liked being physically active, but with work and stable chores, house chores and everything, I let myself go and didn't take particularly good care of my own health. Over the winter I was feeling depressed and, well... sick. Went to the doctor, and got full blood-work done. I was just Vitamin D deficient, luckily, so I knew it was time to realize that an effort was in order to get into better shape. Now I have been running for two months, and have even entered in a 5k race in May. (There's lots of motivational drive in trying to avoid public ridicule...)
I feel fantastic already and have lots of energy, and I really recommend getting sweaty if you're feeling tired and down (but see your GP first, to make sure you're generally healthy).
Right!! Onto what's really IMPORTANT! Sewing!
There has not been any. I have knitted some though. But I have plans to change all that:)
