glad c1 is doing well chuggy lovely that you have friends who will visit

well bicycled noggs!

running? what's that??
25/01/2013 at 09:09

C'mon Daffs; you've got a sister to beat. I'm just getting ready for my second run of the day.

25/01/2013 at 09:57

That's one hour of turbo tempoing and 900 calories burned.

New MTB or some new kit for road riding.  It's a dilemma.

25/01/2013 at 10:13

Meldy...we've been spammed again.

Well done, Noggs. That is one of life's tough questions.

(((Lurgified WAISTers))) Kindly keep your germblies to youselves.

Chuggy, it must have been a relief for you to see that C1 is still able to smile. I bet that 'Fetchie Woof' has been  much-loved companion and will have given C1 a little taste of home no matter how far away she is.

(((Tubs))) it must be horrible to get your hopes up each time and then have them dashed again . You always get on with your life regardless but you surely are overdue for something that will help.

Great going from the WAISTer boys, it looks as if you are doing my share too.

Mind you,I was out at 7.00 in order to get to aquagym. Just the single session today (30 minutes) as I did the shopping on the way home. It is still cold here (around 0 degrees C) and grey, but dry and the forecast is for temperatures just into double figures over the weekend . We had thought that SB and gf might come down this weekend, but gf has to work, so the visit has ben pushed back for another week. However, we are meeting up with some old friends tomorrow. I was bridesmaid at their wedding 30 years ago but we haven't seen them for about 20 years, so we have a lot of catching up to do!


WAIST well xxxx

(((( C1 and Chuggy )))) Ew that tube looked uncomfortable! So pleased she is on the mend. Vibe machine is on turbo

((( lurgified waisters ))))

It is chucking it down here. Cats, dogs and a few bovines!

I must admit to being a bit gutted about these latest glasses. The sunglasses which haven't arrived yet are the same prescription which will be a pain if both sets need altering. I have a lot of astigmatism post transplants and a very acute axis. It may be beyond being corrected by glasses, a stage I'd reached long before I had transplants and struggled with specialised lenses for years. For the past two years they've been trying to fit Kerasoft lenses at Liverpool but none so far have worked. I've paid for two sets, think I'm going to ask for a refund as they've gone in the bin. I try to reuse my frames but one broke early last year, I needed stronger reading glasses and I have light sensitivity so desperately need the sunglasses before we go on hols. The prescription I need means the glasses have to be sent away, lenses for my sunglasses alone - I reused the frames were well over ??100. Sorry, rant over. I'm sure I'll get sorted eventually. With a straight jacket!

Nothing like a cute axis Tubs  

and good afternoon all ... slightly less manic start to the day

I have swum and am now starving

Glad to hear that C1 is improving Chuggs, how lovely to have friends on hand!!   and talking of friends in hospital et.c, poor old Melifera is still in Lanza following her accident after Christmas, hoping she will be allowed to fly soon

25/01/2013 at 16:30

eww Chuggs poor C1 I would have fainted!! and bless how lovely that Fetchy Woof went too, mind you he doesn't look too comfy, when you next speak can you make sure he's tucked up in bed please!!

Oh ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Tubbs~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is freezing here! Hope Tesco man gets here before the snow, else I shall have to down grade tomorrow's girlie meeting down from dinner to nibbles!!

It was certainly a little chilly earlier Spence but its going to be shorts weather by Sunday 

25/01/2013 at 16:49

Yuck, cold and snow, cold and rain---sounds COLD everywhere 

Tubs, you obviously have some complicated problems, but surely they ought to be able to find some way to correct for them? And AT LEAST if the specs don't work, you shouldn't have to pay for them!!!! Like Sluggie said, it must be a real emotional rollercoaster, getting your hopes up each time... and surely it shouldn't be quite so hit and miss as this??

Sluggie, mega respect for getting into cold water at 7 am----brrrr!!!!! How disappointing that SB and gf couldn't come, seems as if you have been trying to get together with them for weeks now, but of course work has to come first. And a nice evening with 20 years worth of interesting info to exchange should be good fun 

Oh Melds, Melifera STILL in hospital? I didn't realise she was as badly hurt as that! Really hope she can get home soon, it must be awfully lonely for her!

XB, TWO runs in before 9 am??? (boggles) That's bliddy brilliant! 

Rossie and I had a nice 4 mile tramp, first time we've had a decent outing in a week.  Friends are taking us out for dinner tonight--yum! Eating out here is great---we had lunch out yesterday and Mr C had the menu du jour: big bowl of fresh veg soup and bread, cole slaw with charcuterie (4 types of salami/ham), steak with chips and 'crumble d'epinard' (spinach with a crisp crumb topping), profiterole, 1/4 litre of wine and coffee. For 12 Euros. Ten quid. Fab.

Blimey Chuggs if you keep giving us the run down on these daily menus you will have a whole bus full of WAISTers on your doorstep 

25/01/2013 at 18:09

I didn't do my second run. I got involved in sorting out something and by the time I'd finished it was snowing.

Procrastination wins1-0

I should be good to go on Sunday.

25/01/2013 at 18:18
I'm supposed to be doing 9 miles tomorrow, can't see it happening. The pavements are lethal
25/01/2013 at 19:35

evening  "aaaaaa-chooo^

busy day here and I feel like crap

hair now back to a normal colour, 3hrs in the hairdressers, and now purse is much lighter

fireplace has been fitted, looks lovely, but.....its in the centre of the room, but it looks a bit "odd" like it needs to move slightly, but then it wont be in the centre.  We just keep looking at it from different angles!

we had a burst and water was running along the floor in the lounge]

Car has been in for its MOT, luckily its not cost us a fortune

Wondering what is an acceptable time to go to bed

XB .. you got a race on Sunday?

Spence, get off road, job done.

Snaily, any time after breakfast

Chuggs, yes - she has a pneumothorax and they want to be sure she is clear of that before flying and also she is at the beck and call of insurance companies and spanish Drs so a bit testing at the best of times

25/01/2013 at 19:55

No. Just need to ramp up the miles for spring maras.

26/01/2013 at 00:48

Got an excuse today, my sons back on leave (RAF)  so we have had a 'little' to drink but its all healthy low fat diet beer, wine JD so all is well!

I did get 11k in before he got back tho ...

Trying to get him out Sunday morning for a forest run, but dont think he is too keen ...

So miss all our training runs to get him in, in the forst place

26/01/2013 at 08:01

I've abandoned the run, just not worth the risk

I shall stay in bed and read my book
26/01/2013 at 08:02

Morning each,

Enjoy your time with your son Cheesy and make sure he does that forest run.  I bet he's not in Raf Reg if he needs persuading to run somewhere!

Not sure what's happening here.  Idiot stepson and his wife are kicking off again so not sure if we're taking Amelia to classes.  More later
