Oh #%}{$ I can't even lurk on the iPad without burping!!! Sorry, but I don't know how to stop it.

Well worked, Spence, though I am a bit surprised to hear that you spent half of your first day back burning down London!??

Nope, never tried the Vibrams. They really look pretty weird, and I don't like stuff between all my toes. I wear Merrell Dash Gloves, they are really comfy with just enough sole to be reassuring. But the main thing is that you don' land on your heel with your foot out in front of you, but on the ball of your foot with your foot right underneath you, like a dancer does. that way your four consecutive levels of built-in shock absorbing work properly. (Arch of foot, ankle, knee, hip) And it actually seems to work!

Chuggs I totally agree with WAISTers inspiring others to go for a run, great bunch on here without even knowing it.

Wait for it......


I've only been for a bliddy run.......and it was raining!

This morning i saw a lot of runners as on my way home from work, and all the talk on here got me itching to go.  Pretty hard this running malarkie!  It was only 3.5k in 31 mins but its a start and I enjoyed it.  There was a local running club out too, they were wizzing past me and lightening speed, so dont think I'll be joining them any time soon

Home made leek and pot soup scoffed, think its time for a coffee

Well done Snaily

I'd love to try them Chuggs !

I see Chuggs soup must have been pretty indigestible as she keeps bringing it up during conversation

Tubbs, Can't say Mrs Dawg likes going to the kennels much but  she seems to settle and is spoilt when she is there. Most importantly, I know she is in the safest place she could possibly be - other than chez Podds with her boys.

well plodded, snaily. Everyone here is inspirational  - my local club is improver friendly - why not pop along .....

oh fancy, a cat collar cam - that would be so funny especially as we could compare what Oskar, HC, Alfie, Blur of a kitten, NLPS and the GPO and the other pussies get up to

The dog blew me out for a walk tonight. She doesn't even have a limpyleg anymore - lazy bitch

HC wondering what his new water bowl is all about!


08/01/2013 at 21:25

We dont like putting HC into the cattery, he does fret and they have to temp him with treats, but he is well looked after and safe.  Though our neighbour has kindly offered to come in and feed him which we'll probably take her up on at some point.

Once he's back at home though he soon settles back in

I've bought him a new water fountain  he still doesnt drink out of it!

08/01/2013 at 21:31

Yums honestly, they were all like racing snakes!  Perhaps if I get my fitness level back up I might join in the spring to keep me motivated.  Now it would be very

i've downloaded a 5k app, this should be fun!

08/01/2013 at 21:36

Tea and bed I think.

Hmmmm - now who's the sucker in that relationship?

As my vet once said - no animal ever voluntarily starved themselves to death.....and they'll sucker anyone into feeding them and wrap them round their little finger..............  I suspect if they didn't tempt him he'd soon tuck in to what was provided - bit like a spoilt child really!!

I have been watching the Stargazing - I do like the mix of science and fun they manage to bring together without detriment to either

Aw Yums - how nice to say Cush's fave hollibob place would be with my houndie boys........I'm sure they'd love to have her over to stay

I've been informed by Mr P in one if his rare masterful moments that I am doing the 7am spin class tomorrow........... so guess I'd better organise my bags or else you can bet your bottom dollar I'll end up having to be late to work as I have to buy knickers before going in!!!

Think you have a point Podds  

08/01/2013 at 22:06
Blimey that's a posh water bowl!!
No point having a cat cam on NTLPS he just sleeps all day, well he is an old boy

I'd like a Garmin on DD though love to know how far she goes on our runs!!
08/01/2013 at 22:22

Why not put yours on her collar then Spence?

08/01/2013 at 22:40
Collar cams would b great :0) Inca would have been straight down a rabbit hole with hers!

I think Oskar will go to the Cattery. Ozzy had a lovely time there. Blue will be fine with Jnr Tubs and I've got a couple of friends who are going to look after the horses. Just need to do Estas and renew holiday insurance. Off to local opticians on Friday to try to improve glasses - struggling to read the chart last time I was in Liverpool in November and I'm not driving at the moment. The blephritis has settled a bit, I've been hot compressing every day religiously, tried my lenses a few times. Vision poor so two years of trying with them I still haven't got lenses that work :0( Will ring eye hospital tomorrow but doubt I'll get any lenses in time for hols.

Well runned Snaily :0) and Chuggy :0)

I missed my walk yesterday, in too much pain but did a mile and a bit today

((( waisters ))))
08/01/2013 at 22:41
Lovely pic of HC Snaily :0) Ozzy used to drink out of the loo!
08/01/2013 at 22:45
Goodness, that'd be interesting spence, do that! Bet she runs about five times as far as you!

Need a bit of inspiration here please too!
09/01/2013 at 07:20

Re DD and the collar Garmin, I had thought of it but worried about losing it!

09/01/2013 at 07:23

*Wafts inspiring vibes Daffwards*

Blimey, I thought HC had a teasmade!   Yes, DD prolly goes twice as far as you, Spence and doesn't have a a potty mouth

And there was I just about to liken your comments to the miniyums. Podds but you mention spoilt children first! No 2 is hiding under a blanket and asking me to bring him his breakfast because he is cold. A straightforward no just brought about pleading. No doubt he will be a skeleton by the end of the day

(((tubs eyes))))  Vibes galore for optician visit ~~~~ peepers~~~~~~

Hope you've remembered your knickers, Podds - now that would be fun to shout across Podds playground

Family dental trip today - hoorah  









09/01/2013 at 09:22

Morning All

Oooo lucky you Yums - a soon to be skeletal sulky teenager and a family trip to the dentist - you're going to have a great day !!!!!!!!!

In addition to doing it up normally add a bit of string through the 2 sides and tie up like a safety chain......this can be subsequently cut so can be as tight and secure as you like

((Tubs)) ~~~~~~~~~~Tubbbs' peepers~~~~~~~~

Well - I'm sure you'll all be glad to know I did remember my kegs and spin didn't quite kill me although the instructor was not at all well so we may have got off slightly lightly compared to normal - class about 5 mins short 

Right - loadsa stuff to do today so I'll see you all later @)

Oops, sorry, that's just the usual result of looking in on a different machine. 

Sluggie, it's really good that Alfie is going in and out so comfortably---he clearly knows where food and cuddles are, and comes back regularly for them! Have you ever tried him on cat sweeties called Temptations? Our two are SHAMEFULLY addicted to them, and if I ever need to get them back in the house, all I have to do is walk down the path rattling the Temptations box! (This is true!)  Glad you're having a restful evening, it sounds like you're still a bit tired from all the jollity on the cruise. 

Rossie and I had a very nice 6.2 km. The barefoot stuff really works for me, because NOTHING HURTS. Not when I run. Not when I get home. Not the next day. Never had that before. And even though I'm VERY slow, there is visible progress. Most of all,  it's you lot that keep me going because every one of you is really inspiring in your own way even though most of you don't know it. 

WAISters ARE THE BEST!!!! xxx

Right, time for a shower, then going to make a giant pot of minestrone!

09/01/2013 at 09:39

Chuggy has some major burping issues!

Morning. Bit ouchy today but in a good way.  The 5k app I've downloaded looks really good, I might even go out again tonight.  Depends how work goes cuz its a bit stressy at the moment. 

A family trip to the Gob Doc, yums u iz evil 

I'd love to know where HC goes, he comes in filthy sometimes so no idea what he's up to.  I fear the the local rodents sometimes!!!  He's taken to sitting in the bedroom window at 5am meowing at the seagulls that seem to wake up at this time.  So he gets a swift boot out the door. 

Right loads to do
