Morning. Tea Nogs please
No running or anything here. Been at FIL flat each morning trying to sort it. By afternoon I'm shattered, not helped by poor sleep
Family visiting from Wales today, staying at my parents so will see them later then visit FIL this evening.

Marshalling marathon tomorrow, can I count that as cross training?

Definitley count that as cross training Amanda!

Congratulations XB! Very well done indeed sir - you are a model for us all, and a constant inspiration to me to persist (even though I actually manage not to quite often)

((((((((((amanda, Jenni, Snaily, XB and the rest of you going through tough times)))))))))

Today is our 7 year anniversary 7 years!! So today I shall mostly be ignoring the parkrun, and spending all my time reminiscing and doing cheery things with Mr Daffs

Happy anniversary Daffs and Mr Daffs have a cheery day

Happy anniversary Daffers - hope you don't get the itch!

((((((((((((((((((((((((JFF, Amandax, Snaily))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Scouting looks fun these days, am I too old to be one?

Went out to 'Beaujolais night' at a local hostelry last night - the staff dressed in berets and there was a three course French themed meal for £14.95 - Vive La France! I was driving so drank l'eau.

Happy weekends one and all

Although daught still enjoys it and is staying on to do her Queens Guide or Baden Powell whatever the top badge is called!!

Pikey cat was watching his nemesis out of the lounge window as he sauntered up the road, pikey launched himself off the chair, down the stairs, out the catflap, duffed him up and then wandered back in dusting himself off

aaaand it's back to work for me !

Happy anniversary to the Daffseses.
Melds, that cat needs an asbo.

I'm on GD duty and I really need my lunch - now.
17/11/2012 at 12:48

Was about to say the same Noggs...about the cat that is although i too need my lunch

8 miles done  I've realised my mileage is down on last year, 'My Mate J' is very close to her target of a 1000 miles, after today I have 120 to do!

Southern Electric owe us £236.39  from the gas bill and from the electric £98.94 surprisingly I'm about to ring them and tell them I don't want to "carry it forward" thank you very much and I'd also like to reduce my monthly dd

The log burner is well on his way to paying for his brother who is sitting in his box until the time Mr Spence has finished the extension !!

I appear to be back at work

I just sat down with my sarni put the telly on and there's highlights of the cycling on I would never have watched it before meeting you lot and once again I'm in tears Fab stuff

AFternoon all

Glad to hear the GPO is keeping everyone in check   If I hadn't seen the photo of the owner of the ASBO cat in the paper last week I might well have believed the story ws about him!!

I am having an afternoon of bike registering filling out the forms for the local fuzz   It is quite disgraceful how many bikes we have for a 2 person house

17/11/2012 at 16:43

Podds, you can never have enough bikes.  The ideal number is actually the number you have plus one.

HL doesn't understand.

BTW, I've found a computer at the dance studio, this is much easier than using my phone.

One step.

9 years ago today I took my last step as a smoker and my first step as a runner.

I'm celebrating 9,274 miles of smiles. A few tears. Some cake. Oh, and a smattering of swear words.

Doh - RW being a bit stoopid! There should be a comment to say "and what about all the lovely new friends you now have?"

17/11/2012 at 17:24

 he has hasn't he !

17/11/2012 at 17:31

 For sure. The best benefit; it woiuldn't have been half as much fun if I hadn't shared it with you lot.

Posting while watching SCD - so there . MS has gone to bowls and left me in charge of the TV (and the bacardi).

XB, that is an anniversary that is really worth celebrating.

I too heard about the ASBO cat and thought of the GPO, it seems that he is keeping in practice.

Such a shame that kids are so starved of parental attention when that is what they need the most . I was far from supermum and lost my temper far more than  should have , but SB says he always knew that he was loved so I guess I must have done something right.

Anyhoo, time for me to go,


WAIST well xxxx

(((Amandax family and FarFarFamily)))

(((Noggy))) I bet the doghouse is chilly.

That scouting day sounds great fun. I do wish that I had found that kind of stuff much soner than I did.

Sluggie, I've always thought if you worry about bring a good parent then you probably are!!
