I thought I had got away with it...but today it caught up with me!

We did a seven mile Nordic Walk on Sunday.

In. The. Snow!! (I hope your impressed cause I was bloody amazed that Chris and I managed to drag ourselves out our pit at 8am on a snowy Sunday morning to go walking!). It was actually rather lovely (I know! Who would ever have imaged?!). The last time we did that walk we went up one huge curving steep hill that damn near killed me. I must have stopped at least five times! This time I made it up TWO rather huge curving steep hills and didn't stop once...mainly cause I had Steve walking beside me telling me that I could do it! It wasn't fast and it probably wasnt pretty (unless red and wheezing does it for you!) but I did it and you know what....yesterday the old legs were not feeling too bad!

Today? Well, all I can say is that it appears to have caught up with me.

Win one of my drawings

In order to celebrate making it to the end of each month in my 'drawing a day for 365 days' attempt I have decided to give away one of the drawings featured in that month. All you need to do is click on this link 'Art Is Autobiographical', then either add yourself as a follower or input your e-mail address in the 'follow by e-mail' box. I will put all the names into a hat, select one at random and that person can then choose which drawing they would like from the previous month. You only have to enter once and you will have a chance to win each month.

I'm doing this as a way of making sure that I keep it up...your e-mail address will not be shared with anyone else or used for anything else.

Feel free to share this on your blog/Facebook Page/Twitter.

I will pick the first winner on Friday the 10th of Feb
...good luck folks
