Must be back to work
Still Nogs, only 6 weeks till half term!!
Morning gangWas a bit tired this morning and I even went to bed before 9pm !
For those that might need it
I'm off to work, training not sure what in!!
Enjoy your training, Spence, hope it turns out to be something interesting, or at least useful
Morning, Melds---are you coming or going? I mean, are you just getting up or just going to bed? I've totally lost track of your duty roster....
Just skyped with C1 who is at Ayers Rock where it's 36 C (cooled off rom 46!!). Was going to get out for an early chug, but of course I had a second cup of coffee with the skype, so I shall now waddle out for something short, slow and ugly. All your inspiring talk of marathons etc does motivate me to at least get out there!
this house is so quiet and empty without the muppets! I'm waiting for the kennels to be open at 9 so I can go get em!
Colchester is just too far for me Spence - sorry.
I do think that we should be making some sort of effort for a WAISter meet up this year though - any suggestions?
We certainly should Sue ... later in the year may be easier to organise?Chuggs, early this morning, two late shifts from tomorrow and then on to nights DL, I dont know how you cope with such excitement. cleaning AND an iPad ....
Spence, the news yesterday was that teachers morale was at an all time low. I'm surprised you have the time to be pee'd off with work, you're never there
Christmas decs are coming down today and I have a bit of paid stuff to do.
Coffee is on
Quick trip to the shops then the Viking Trail Bike Ride (about 27 miles) then house tidying then a couple of friends round for tea...........
I never cook...........I can't cook..........so this is something of a royal command performance - I shall consider the evening a success if nobody gets poisoned!!
Best get some clothes on as Tesco takes a dim view of nudity in the aisles
Podds get Tesco pre-prepared food, much easier for friends coming for tea and less risk of poisioning!!!
oh to have 36c. Although it is pretty mild darn souf, 12c in January just seems wrong.
You lot are a bad influence, I'm getting the "feeling" for a run, oh shame I'm at work!!!
On NYD Podds said we could all go back to hers for pasta or go to the pub....guess which I chose
Ooh, Mandax, how fab. I quite fancied taking a peek at that diving prog. If nothing else to see how on earth you teach someone to perform those dives. If you wear a big, floppy hat we're sure to recognise you
I smell desperation in Spence's half recruitment attempts - shame I'm injured or I might have been interested
Get you,. XB on telly again Can't say I recognise Mr Celebrity though.
oh chuggy, that man certainly has cheese - no wonder Ozzie cheeses seem tasteless as those cheese look superb. Hmmm, apparently I'm only 35 mins flight time from Schiphol airport...
Snaily, I thought your chute was a swimming hat in the first pic - hasn't Youtube helped you get it right yet ?
A WAISter meet up......the team southern softies v team northentough nuts - featuring Sue from Welsh Wales
You are so going to be toast when OH finds out you've been using the pad of i, DL. Double cleaning duties for you
I am trying to convince the minis to go swimming but I'm reluctant myself. I dont like getting wet and the kids always splash me and I get water in my goggles....
Oh well done, Podds! If I were having a dinner party I would deffo not be able to cycle 27 miles the same day! (And that's even worse than it sounds, cos like Snaily I'd hit the steaming Tesco's for the food!!!) You ARE superwoman, I always suspected it
Snaily, loved the photos of you with the...the...the thing on your head. No wonder you can't figure it out, I can't even tell what it's supposed to be!!!
Just back from 2 miles. In fitness terms it was not so much a wake-up call as a kick in the ribs and someone shouting 'OI! Are you DEAD??' Oh well, gotta start (again!) where you are, right?
Lovely photos from Tubbs, XB and Yummy. Houndtastic indeed!
Snaily, when you have sorted out your mother and Paignton do you fancy starting on Bristol Frenchay?? To be fair, they will be getting referrals from all over the south-west, I suspect, and chronic pain is one of the 'Cinderella services' as the government, and thus hospitals, prefer things where people can be treated and discharged within a certain time; all boxes ticked. Anything chronic tends to lose out because of that.
That is a good point about the cheese - the Australia border programs show loads of people being finded for trying to take food into the country! They also treat Contact (the cold remedy) as an illegal substance as it can be used to manufacture crystal meth .
I am posting this sat at MS's comp as I cannot recharge the battery on my lappie since Alfie chewed through the lead. I need to wait in for MIL and am seeing Thursday man this arvo, OA this evening. Somewhere along the line I will have to get another lead and also some anti-chew stuff - this could have been far worse if he had chewed through a mains cable .
WAIST well my lovelies xxx
Aww bless Alfie - clearly happy to be home although it would be nice if he could find a less dangerous way to demonstrate his happiness
I have ingredients and a couple of recipes..............but first bike time
Yumms - can see your point re swimming and getting wet......now if you're only a 35 minute flight from Schipol there's a rumour they are starting up flights to Amsterdam from Manston again in the spring which means I'm only the same distance away....
*sniggers as Yums and Podds plan to descend on Chuggy and abuse her hospitality *
but we'd need pet passports so we could take the hounds, podds.........
oh, sluggy, silly Alfie. I wonder what it s about cables. A friend who works at the local hozzie had to move offices yesterday cos foxy loxy had chewed through the poer and t'internet cables and sadly been elctrocuted in the process. And yes, I reckon you're right about the Cinderella factor to explain your stoopidly long wait for treatment.
EVERYONE TAKE COVER PODDS IS COOKING
I'm sure chuggy would also love 4 houndie guests Yums as would Rossie but I suspect the feline resident might be somewhat less impressed!
Back from bike - lovely mild day with a hint of sun now and again and precious little wind which is unusual - 26.65 miles @ 12.4 mph which is about right for the cyclocross bike, however really feeling the lack of biking in my lower neck / shoulders....or rather the trapezius and rhomboideus minor
