I am now on week 2 of the Couch to 5K programme, and this involves running for 90 seconds and walking for 2 minutes for a total of 20 minutes (so 6 repetitions). I managed it quite well yesterday (Saturday) on the first day of the week, so we'll see how the week progresses.
My friend and I went to see the Manic Street Preachers in concert during the week. They played the Manchester Apollo, which is a fantastic venue as far as the acoustics go - the band sounded great! We have seen them at various venues, including the O2 in London, but the Apollo is the best by far - the audience is nowhere near as large, but the sound is phenomenal! Needless to say, I came out of the concert with very little voice left, after all the singing I had done...
I opened my Exchange piece from the Needlecraft Haven at the beginning of the week, and received this from Kate:

As I know my partner, Dusty, has received and opened her piece, I can now post a picture of my stitched piece - 'Bloom' by Lizzie*Kate:
The rotation piece I will be stitching on for the next week (hopefully!) is 'Mermaids of the Deep Blue' by Mirabilia. This is how it looks before I start stitching on it:
