Hello, Wizard Dog!

Gosh, I've forgotten how to do a post!

It was the Halloween fancy dress at my local parkrun this morning. As my friend's dog Joe always gets in on the fancy dress act, I made him a wizard's cloak. Made it from my own design, just using fleece and a few buttons.

He loved it, especially as it was a freezing cold morning!

Would anybody like the chance to sponsor me?

Hi all,

I'm busily training for the London Marathon still - only 7 weeks to go now! I'm running for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and if anybody would like to sponsor me, the site is

If I raise over £300, I'm running it dressed as Lara Croft - easier to spot me on the TV to point and laugh!

A duvet for a doll

I made this before Christmas for my niece (my niece and fleece seem to feature heavily on this blog!). I bought the doll cot from a carboot for the princely sum of £1 and my OH sanded it down and painted it (man stuff) whilst I made the Peppa Pig duvet and pillow (woman stuff).

It was made entirely from scratch and I'm really pleased with it, although it could do with being a bit bigger, to keep Dolly warm in this cold weather ;o)
