Ahhh (((((Far Far's one and all)))) please give Mr Far Far a hug from me.

wow Tubbs that is quite some story!

5 miles done which I really, REALLY didn't want to do!

Mr Spence has finished putting the final of 8 steels in  although the last one has needed gas pipes to be moved anyway I keep telling him that's the worse bit over, just the actual building to do now!! Not sure he believes me   and I keep saying the space we will gain will be worth it.... he certainly doesn't believe that!

(((Hugs))) for the Farty family

Not a lot achieved here today except sleep!

Chuggs, I should have videoed the route for you and you could have appreciated the views as well, as Noggs will testify it is truly lovely from the Ridge looking down

(((FarFars))) Take good care of each other.

((((((((((The Far Far family)))))))))


Tubs - I've never been a starters person, much more interested in the main course and pudding !

I appear to be back in Dragonland and someone's turned the rain on

HI to all.

Haven't read back for a few days as its been a bit full-on here what with long lost friends turning up and lots of catching up to do and feeling a tad tired, plus visit to Mum, Dan and AA and a trip to Waisterose thrown in for a classy sausage roll or two


Hope everyone is well and gets some sunshine in their day


Well, more like moonshine at this time of night

Classy sausage rolls? You know how to live Larry !

Evening each,

HL and I went off into Oxford earlier on a whim to watch Skyfall.  Loved it. I was pleased to see that Daniel Craig had a grey stubble - much like my own efforts with the tache.

I've not been to the cinema for a while - when did they stop playing the National Anthem at the end of a film?

Bubble and squeak with a bottle of Merlot sound ok?


19/11/2012 at 20:16

Evening all


One of our juniors had similar on Sunday - a tremendous high from having won the junior XC race by around 200 yards followed by a massive low and floods of tears on hearing afterwards that his gran had died in hospital basically while he was running.........

19/11/2012 at 20:20

ooh, I timed that well - Noggs singing lovely Mr Bond's praises and offering bubble n squeak and merlot - perfik

and larry and her classy sossige rolls - do you eat them with you little finger cocked too ?

(((snailies, snaunties and snaily mummy))))

(((family farty pants))) a tough time all round but I'm glad mr fartyfart feels better now that his Dad is no longer suffering.

I'm sure there is another hug due - c'mon, fess up, who needs an ug ?

(((tubbster the foundling))))

I have three bikes  - Bob, my workhorse is about 17, Myfanwy my road bike and Talullah my MTB

I best read back a bit again as I've forgottid everyfink

19/11/2012 at 20:35

((mandax))) hope you're feeling perkier soon

happy anniversary Mrs n Mr daffy

XB you are a shining beacon

Hope Mr Podds hurty man knee news is  positive

well cycled, sluggy, nowt quite like a spin along the prom prom prom

ooer, Sue has knits and she's very pleased about it

FP, you do find some bargains - will you be getting a matching onesie for you too


19/11/2012 at 20:35


(((FarFarFamily))) I spect there will be some very mixed feelings - grief that he has gone, relief that he is no longer suffering, guilt cos you are not 'supposed' to think like that, anger that things weren't different etc.  Look after each other.

Chuggy, that is a great video, thanks for posting it

(((Mr Podds and his hurty knee))) I loved your news story, especially as they have a special mention to snails - I am sure the same must apply to other gastropods .

Tubs, hearing your story makes me feel very sad for all concerned. How lovely that you have Mr T to depend on now.

Sue, what a lovely drive that sounds.

Have done aquagym, coffee + lunch with friend, then came home for a snooze. Quiet afternoon and even quieter evening as MS has just gorn to bed, having to be up around 3.30am tomorrow .


WAIST well xxxx


19/11/2012 at 20:36

I hope Mr P's trip to the docs was a success if that's the right word.

First day of new eating regime today. This time next week you'll not be able to see me sideways on.

19/11/2012 at 20:48

evening just back home
((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Far Fars )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

now going to chill out my back is killing me think overdid the "helping out " so may have a rest tomorrow.

19/11/2012 at 21:21
XB, can you post a daily menu ta muchly!
M...eldy    pirate
19/11/2012 at 21:27

Ooh yes, you can whet our appetite!!

19/11/2012 at 21:29

Oh FarFar, thinking of you all very much. You all did everything you could for as long as he was with you and I'm sure he knew at every moment that he was loved. Be very gentle with yourselves, you will be more tired than you realise. 


Oh Podds, how tough for that young lad, with his high after winning the XC so abruptly slammed into reverse by the news about his gran. On a happier note, I hope you managed to accompany Mr P to the surgeon. (Mr C is the same, any medical setting brings on total amnesia!) What did the surgeon think about the knee?

Sluggie, sounds like you were running around all morning so a quiet evening is in order. Erm, hope you don't have to keep MS company at 0330!!

Gosh, XB, a new regime? I thought your diet was already the gold standard---a perfect combination of scrummy and good for you! 

Ooooh, Yums, I'll have that hug if it's still going, please!!! 

Westie, a hurty back is standard issue after a house move. Rest day tomorrow for sure. 

Thanks, Nogs, another positive vote for Skyfall, guess that will be the Chuggs' Christmas outing then. Oh, and I would have thought it was self-evident that ANYTHING with a bottle of merlot sounds perfect 

Larry, you do sound busy! But nice busy, which is the best kind. How's Millie these days? I assume she has definitely given up her hopes of being a lap dog? 

Melds, I can well believe that route looked as beautiful as it sounds. Just the names bring on an attack of homesickness, so prolly just as well I can't see the view too

Spence, this sounds like a very long term project you have going on there. Any idea when it's going to be finished? 

Tubs, I guess family life has never been all that straightforward---but such a sad and complicated history makes it specially nice that you and Mr Tubs and your family are so happy together. 

I've been running around all day but got less than half done of what I need to do. It's going to be Christmas in five weeks---eek! And once C1 arrives (2 weeks from Friday) I won't have a moment to THINK let alone do anything. Double eek!!!!

But I'm going to toddle off to bed now anyway cos I'm tired )) xxxx
