Ouch, just bought winter wheels and tyres, mainly for my Austria trip but I'll use them in the UK over winter to see how they go.

My ribs are hurting now.

Just tried to have a phone conversation with Spanish Dave - he's an alcoholic and only calls when he's pi55ed (which is most of the time)  I think I'm the only semblance of a friend he has.  I really have nothing to talk about with him.  He's been married four times, has 4 children that he's never supported, he's run away from everything that has responsibility attached to it (like supporting your kids and paying your bills) and he wonders why i have nothing to say to him.

TV time.

You are a voice on the end of the phone for him Noggs ...that probably all he needs

Tubs, we used to nail an old duvet (folded over a few times) to the inside of the doors of our early morning chorus!

I did go to the gym and I did 90 mins so I am feeling reet virtuous

Well done

I haven't and I don't

However today for the first day in a few I feel reasonably human so once Mr P has been dispatched  I shall try and get a bit organised..........

Bed with some mags now and BBC4   rock 'n' roll Friday nights

Well done, Meldy. You can go to the ball. The funny shaped one.

And well done for being there, Noggles.

Your knee just needs to be mobilised, Spencey.

23/11/2012 at 22:06 feel the fear, do it anyway wrote (see) once Mr P has been dispatched

Thanks Meldy x

My sweet April has gone over the Rainbow Bridge to play with Ozzy. Such a faithful little girl :0(

(((( waisters ))))
23/11/2012 at 22:31

Oh Tubs. I know she hadn't been well, and I hope it was peaceful and pain-free, but it leaves such a big hole. She was such a sweet girl and so devoted to you.  


I hope she is playing with Ozzy, somewhere. xxxx

23/11/2012 at 22:31

Oh dear, now I'm crying. 

23/11/2012 at 22:35

23/11/2012 at 23:36
Oh no! Please don't be upset :0( It was very peaceful and at home. She was almost 14 and we've had ten wonderful years with her. Midge and Guttie especially will love her xx

(((tubbs)))  Like all the other WAISter pets, April couldn't have been more loved or had a more wonderul life

LOL at Podds unusually heavy wheelie bin

Oooh, Twickers M...eldy ? How hoobacious although the weather forecast here is so much rain that footie training has been cancelled andthe match tomorrow is in question - hope the sun shines on the righteous ...... and you

(((spence knee)) Well, if you didn't spend so much time on your hands and knees....

Sluggy, that sounds like a fabulous concert - cant beat a good singalong - the shame is I'm no good

This week I have banged on it with the plod club Tues - intervals, Thurs - 5k plodette and Fri -  hills. Today I am supposed to be helping chum paint and clean up the flat she plans to rent out but not heard from her.  This week I have been enjoying the Tits and Jays in my garden

24/11/2012 at 09:22

(((((Tubbs)))))))) - be assured Guttie will already be looking after her and he will love to have a new pal - oh dear now I'm watering - what is it with these labbies...... 

Well said Yums - re both April and my wheelie bin!!! Thanks for the suggestion XB

Hope Twickers stays dry for you Meldy - we were supposed to be under a downpour here today but so far it has failed to materialise........although it's quite grey and generally uninspiring

Meant to say nice concert Sluggie and Yums is right - a good sing along is always good for the spirits

Good plodding Yums - I am hoping to rejoin the world of training this arvo with swim training although I'll have to see if my energy levels hold out for the whole session or not - and then possibly will take my bike to run club tomorrow just for the company   Looks like my tail end charlie duties at the 10 miler next week are not going to happen though!

Laters peeps

I think this is the first time in ages that I have managed to post before lunchtime .


(((Tubs))), the problem with having an 'April' shaped hole in your heart is that it is a blimmin big hole to fill! Our 4 legged companions bring so much joy but they are not meant to be with us for ever so that we can give our love to, and learn from, many of them over the course of our lives. And now Im blubbing too! I swore after Chivvy that I would never have another cat because I couldn't bear going through the hurt all over again...

Meldy is watching men play with oddly shaped balls? oooh, I'm jealous.

Yumms, you have really been hitting the training with the running club! I hope that you have an enjoyable weekend as reward.

(((spence's knee)))

(((Noggy))), hurty ribs are nasty . BTW, you are a fine figure of a man, you don't want to look like a beanpole.

I am waiting for cattery lady to get back to me before I can book us a last minute hoiliday. I don't meant that MS and I will be staying at the cattery, but we can't go if there is no room  for them to have Alfie. I am getting very impatient...


WAIST well xxx
