for joggers, slow runners, run/walkers and newbies
(crawls into lounge and subsides on floor) Well, it's done. And a great success it was, I must admit. One older gent said how touched he was, 'no one who's led the group in the past has ever invited us to their home. It's very special'. Awww.... and now:
XB, what a nightmare. You could have CRAWLED that 36 miles faster! Glad a nice toddle this morning improved the world, though.
Do not be a heroine! Go to bed, drink Lemsip and tea and all that , take painkillers and give yourself a chance to rest up and feel better. xxxx
Tubs, great that you're feeling better! And re lentils: wot Daffs said. The orange lentils are specially good for soup---add carrots and onions and curry powder , lots of recipes here. Green or brown ones also work for soup but hold their texture better so are very tasty in a casserole with onions, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes (tinned, dried, paste, whatever), herbs and anything else you fancy (red wine is nice. You can put either a pastry lid on or a mashed potato topping for good shepherd's pie. Lentils is brill!! But re the new garage, are you and Mr Tubs planning to live forever on IoM? For some reason I thought you were intending to move back to the mainland well before the old fart stage...?
Sluggie, how good of you to help with that appeal. Sounds like she really needs and deserves the help. And I never realised you were moderating a forum on benefits! These days with all the changes and cuts, that kind of thing is worth its weight in gold to other people. Well done you!!!!!
Must go rummage in the leftovers to find dinner....there's not that much left, but I'm sure I'll find something
I have run In the last of the daylight along the canal path
Good luck, DL. Hope you're wearing your thermal underwear!
Tubs, that sounds like a great lifestyle----winters in Florida, summers on IoM near Jnr and Min!
Bit of a upset here. Had a call about an hour ago from C1 who is in hospital in Melbourne with unexplained air in her diaphragm. They think it may be a silent ulcer that has perforated. (Apparently this is not unknown when people take over the counter painkillers like aspirin and ibuprofen, which she has been doing with all her running.) She is having a CAT scan about now, so they can see what's happened.
If there has been a perforation, as they suspect, then if it is still open, or appears to be inadequately healed, they will do surgery to close it up. If it has healed by itself, or if they see no signs of perforation. they will keep her in hospital for the next few days for observation.
She's in good spirits, and her bf is with her, bless him, and she's in good hands, but strengthening vibes would be welcome!
I hope they run proper steam engines, Tubs? Sounds like something from one of those wonderful 1940's films
Nogs, not working does have its attractions! Enjoy it, you've earned every snowflake
Good news from C1. CAT scan showed stomach perforated on Monday but has started to heal so no surgery for the moment. But she has to stay in hozzie for 4 days to be monitored, and have intravenous antiB's, and let her stomach rest. Asked if she felt bad and she said 'No, I'm on morphine, I feel great!' I've asked the friends we stayed with last summer to go see her if they can, just to get another parental perspective, but it sounds like she's going to get out comparatively lightly. After 6 weeks they will do further tests to try to find the cause of the problem, it may be a bacterium.
Two relieved parents here!!!! And now coffee is a very serious necessity....
Poor C1! And you too chuggy, you must be worrying all those miles away ((((((((((chuggies)))))))))) Don't blame you for the coffee. Sounds like she's doing alright, and good if you can get someone else to pop in and see her too
Good look DL! I'm not leaving the house today
((((C1 and Chuggy)))) It must be so hard when you can't just pop in and reassure yourself that she really is OK. It is quite a salutary lesson for runners, perhaps better to pop the occasional paracetamol rather than aspirin/NSAID. Some people can get away with taking the things for years, others suffer from side effects much more quickly.
Tubbs your plans for retirement sound idyllic!
Noggy, if I was you I would make the most of thisdowntime - you have certanly earned it.
Alfie is in the 'doghouse' here having peed on MS's clothes for the past 2 evenings . I really don't have any idea why he has started doing this, am going to try a 'Feliway' thingy to see if that helps. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise as it means we have to put our clotes away overnight, rather than leaving them til morning!
Have just had an estate agent round to look at the house and give us a valuation, although we are going to leave it another month or two before we atually put it up for sale - that will give us time to finish getting things done as we have lost impetus recently. Thursday man this arvo but first I am catching up with last nigt's 'Comic relief British bake off' - it is heavy on the baking and light on Comic Relief and I am rather enjoying it (although I do now have a craving for scones and eclairs!).
WAIST well xxx
Sluggy, where you moving to?
What a relief Chuggy, hope C1 has some R&R in hospital with no other side effects.
I am still bunged up, with headache and sneezing. Having trouble sleeping but had to come into work for some urgent work today. Luckily I'm on holiday tomorrow getting my hair fixed so can have a lazy morning.
that's good news for you Chuggy and must take a lot of the worry out of being so far away.
still not much going on up here, still snow but roads are not bad at all but the paths are murder.
managed a couple of short walks but no real plodding done for two weeks.
That's good to hear Chuggs
I'm going to send NTLPS to live with DL, daught caught him this morning about to carp in Mr Spence's shoe!!
Another fabbo lazy day. Sorted misunderstanding over Oakley goggles order, picked up office supplies from Tesco direct, Booked hotel in Germany for Austria trip - A basic Ibis in Aachen for 32 euros b and b. each. Opened a savings account to budget for next years tax bill.
Hang on, that doesn't sound too lazy for a morning does it.
Two positives to report. I've not had a drink since Italy and won't take a drink until Austria - hence I'm shifting some of the weight that snuck back on. I bought one of those M and S meal deals today and opted for the carton of juice instead of the wine.
second, I've turbo'd every day since the Noro left me and will try to ride every day until Austria - a sort of late Janathon.
That sounds far too righteous for me.
That does indeed sound extremely righteous Noggs!! What's happened?? Could do with a dose of whatever you've taken myself
With all this talk of poo and wee, I do find myself wondering why people have pets sometimes!!
Is it time to stop work yet?
Hope you're home now Daffs
Well done Noggin
