I'm now half way through a refresher course in swimming and I wish I'd done it years ago instead of being so hung up on what I look like and how good I am. I'm enjoying it so much and I'm actually better than I thought. I know its one of those things that you supposedly never forget how to do, but you'd be amazed at how much your technique improves when you have coach.
I can't wait to get to Marrakech now and take advantage of the pool!
I learnt to knit as a kid but finding crochet easier, never really stock with it. However, last week I did a course at the very lovely Nest knitting shop, and I actually accomplished a finished pair of wrist warmers. They aren't perfect, but I'm proud of them.
Next stop; ravellry.

Ever wanted to go out dressed like an Aristocat but have been deterred by the irritating fact that its not really socially acceptable (and a bit ridiculed)?
Probably not but, you will just adore this tumblr blog Disneybound. It pulls together fantastic looks inspired by all our favourite Disney characters (plus some you've never heard of). It is sheer genius and wont have you looking like a 'kooky' try hard teenager.
I'm not talking Gaga kermit dresses or anything, just subtle ideas that channel our childhood princess heroins.
They even have a Prince Eric look hmmm. Yes, I am aware that it's wrong to have a cartoon crush but Prince Eric is CLEARLY the exeption to the rule.
I could spend hours on this website.
*yes that's right, beautiful. In my head.
