The Spring Ball and London Marathon

I've been a bit busy socially recently which is why I haven't been blogging....tut tut tut, but I have been working on finishing my Rascal's cardigan. Honest. Well, it started last Friday when I went wine tasting with Gracie at Vinolopolis. I do like my wine/champagne/Cocktail now again, but I do drink sensibily. Heeheehee! According to Grace, I was talking to my cocktail and I remember almost spillling it down myself. Anyway, I'm sure she will tell you a lot more funny antics that I was up to that day. Heeheehee. I highly recomend a visit to Vinopolis when in London.

After having a jolly time wine tasting, we had our company's spring ball the next day at the Dorcester. Nice champange they have...and according to Jackson I slept like a pig afterwards. Heehee. Here is a photo of the both of us on that night.

We watched the Marthon with a hangover on Sunday which passes our road, I managed to take afew few photos. Wasn't it a lovely day? Probably a bit too hot for the runners though. I really admire all the runners, I'm not very good at running, always the last few at the School's cross counting running. Hee! Hee!
The finishing of my Rascal cardigan is coming on slowly. I've finished the collar now, so all I need to do are:
- Knit the two sides
- Sewing up

Hopefully, I'll finish it before her birthday next month.

I too have never been able to run. Both the kids were good at it and ran for the school and county, they must follow their Dad for that. Looking forward to seeing your little ones cardigan, I can't knit either!

Sounds really wonderful! Hope you enjoyed wine tasting :D I get drunk SO easily with alcohol o a sip of wine tasting would be enough for me ;p
We walked to Greenwich after the marathon. The road was really empty and it had a very nice atmosphere. Looking forward to the cardigan!
