Lots of Mud

Last weekend Kristen and I participated in the annual Tough Guy & Tough Gal Challenge in Rotorua.  With just over 50mls of rain falling the previous day I knew we were going to have plenty of mud and we did.

Kristen was going to do the 12km course and I the 6km, but after the first lap Kristen changed her mind along with 19 other people to only complete one lap.  Then 1/2 hour later I finished mine and was about 10 minutes faster than my previous attempt.  That was strange as I walked the whole way where previously I had spurts of running previously.  But I can say I was not that stuffed at the end like I usually am.

Here we are keen to go.  Notice the puffer jackets on. It was not a warm day and went you jumped into the water you definitely found out.

But the best thing about the water is that you could wash all that mud of and look nearly decent at the end.

Another Christmas In July Update ....a bit late...................

Over on Our Craft Group on Facebook I sort of run some swaps and last month completed the Christmas in July swap.  I was fortunate enough to have two partners which was great until I got a little message that I had sent each parcel to the wrong person.  But never fear it was sorted and everyone got the right one.
I sent and received from the same people Helen and Narelle and here is what I sent.
I sent this table runner to Narelle which I made from French General charm squares

and to Helen I sent this one

I love using this pattern.  It is so easy to make this tale runner and with the amount of Charm packs I have, will make many more.
From Helen I received this lovely gift which will be used lots

Still awaiting on Narelles gift, but being a farmer I know she has been having a busy time, so will post what I receive at a later date.

Now if you what to join up on a couple more Christmas swaps, pop over to Our Craft Group as I am now taking sign ups for a Christmas Advent swap and also a Christmas Swap
