I can't visualise it either, but as I only really know the route from the showground (ie Festival) to the market cross/Pride Hill, it's not surprising. I have been to and through Shrewsbury quite a bit, but not enough to visualise it from a map.

Two puddings, Meldy!?!?!

Awwww, Pipps. That's sad.

Let's see a pic of your puddings, Melds.

Oh Pippi, what sad news. But sounds like you were very good friends to him, so you have nice things to look back on and the knowledge that you made him feel noticed and valued.

Spence, bit odd of  Map My Run not to show the streets in Shrewsbury. Have you got the zoom  turned up to max? It shows really, really small streets around here if I zoom in enough, and Shrewsbury's got to be closer to MMR than here is!

XB, what a weird approach from the insurance company. They must REALLY think their customers are daft. Bizarre. They obviously reckon without the likes of you and Daffs! 

Melds, that sounds like everything a birthday dinner should be 

Well runned, Snaily! Hope you have a great weekend and find everything in Stoke in good order. 

C1 has just announced that she's thinking of doing a 200 k race in a few months. Hmmm....not quite sure how to react to that one. Fortunately my reaction won't matter anyway  Time for bed here, sweet dreams all xxxx

Evening all

Just been to see the Les Mis films and it was brilliant - the whole cinema was weeping like babies for most of the last hour, including the gym type muscle bound boy friends who'd obviously been dragged along under protest

I've never seen the stage show but always loved the music but having seen the songs in context was so emotional - so busy trying to keep it under control that when the lights went up nearly had a complete bawling fit from pent up emotion  Off to bed now with a nice sensible magazine to try to come down a bit.........

See you all tomorrow

Morning all. Cold and frosty here this morning and just heard on the Beeb that rain turning to snow later is in store for some of you, so be careful on the roads!

Podds, Les Mis was a great show, wonderful music and a fantastic libretto (hard to believe it wasn't written in English) but people say the film is much more emotionally gripping, and it sounds like it was! Hope you managed to get settled enough to sleep 

Still trying to get through all the chores etc that piled up in December. Then a cycle into the village, maybe a wander down to watch C1 play fruitbowl. The excitement is intense..... 

12/01/2013 at 08:41

Sounds great Podds I confess I don't even know the story

200k race Chuggs?! Quite right about your reaction being ignored though

I am out of bed and dressed in running clothes - might just make it to parkrun for first time in about 3 months!

12/01/2013 at 08:44

It's snowing ! I need to get out of my pit and do 3 miles!!

Now I saw Les Mis on stage in Edinburgh and I didn't like it, too long, to operary for me... But I was a mear slip of a thing then, so might try again....when it comes on the telly!!

Good morning all

The haul continues:

2 x Green & Blacks assortment
The Feed Zone - cook book
Team Sky 21 Days to Glory
Olympics 2012 - Official Commemorative Book

Plenty or reading matter to keep me amused

I am not sure working a 10 hr shift the day after ones birthday is strictly legal

Yep ... just started a few flakes here as well Spence

12/01/2013 at 08:49

Oh dear, Podds, don't think I'll go to see that as I found Bambi traumatic.

I did laugh at Percy the Purple Penis though - very teenage school kid And LOL at Sluggy and her optimistic biology and english student

Blimey Dayy, how much did you reduce your insurance by? Odd dontcha think that when I use a comparison site say for car insurance, the quotes can range from under £200 to over £1000

XB, your are a genius solving the leccy problem. I didn't know there could be fuses in light switches  but I could have done some basic elimination and realised where the prblem was, if not what it was

M...eldy two puddings, what a hoobacious burfdee meal - my invite clearly got lost in the post

Awww, Pippi, that's sad about your neighbour - apart from WAISters, lovely people are few and far between

200k race for C1, chuggs? All running or other modes of transport e.g. bike, kayak?

Cold here! Snow later tonight possibly. Olds wedding anniversary today  - 56 years and they're off to see Les Mis - they've not been to the cinema for over 30 years - guess they're gonna miss the organist rising out the floor and the usherettes   I spread one wage to cover two teenagers and a dawg. I could live more frugally as long as there is cake, wine, wimmin and song

12/01/2013 at 08:50
I need to take DD out if nothing else and I only need to do 3 miles....

But still I'm watching it through the crack of the curtains!!

12/01/2013 at 10:01

It's an unusual switch with the fuse holder right next to the switch.

Need need need need need need need.

12/01/2013 at 10:41

oh you got my hopes up there, Spence

I need too, XB - doubt its the same need though

Now, taking the car to meditation would be far warmer and comfy than getting togged up and taking my bike and mean I arrive serene but I wont get that smug, holier than though glow when I get home and feel justified in eating my cayke I just bought from Mrs Bun the baker  - @rse !

I would happily spend a few hours on my bike than be here today!!

I might leaf through my new foodie book and see what delights I can dream about

12/01/2013 at 11:37
The need thing was directed at me Yums!!

I must refrain from saying "I need to run" and say instead "I want to run"

It's a work in progress!
