How tragic

14/02/2013 at 08:42


ok, right, I might live to regret this, really am I about to say it..........I'll do the 10k


Need a lie down now to recover

morning all, If I am picking this up ok now it will be Stratford and not Brum ? Just so I don't get too mixed up in my old age and Noggy if you are too old for youth hostels I may have to look for a nice quiet retirement home for a few days.
I will see if I can get the delightful Mrs westie to come down with me so will need to book somewhere near to the meet so the earlier the better for us old ones .

I am NOT committing to any running as it's a long time till November but will review the situation about October as I don't want to end up like this Inverness half paid for but unable to run.I tried for a deferment but no chance as they said read the small print.

OK I've checked out train times, and its doable, I'd be coming on the Friday and going back on Sunday.  Can normally get a travel lodge for about £20 and I dont mind sharing!!!

14/02/2013 at 09:25

Or can stay in Brum and train over to stratford, its only an hour


Right better do some bloomin work now!

I can see sun!!!
14/02/2013 at 12:50

There is an orange thing in the sky here too, I think its the Sun meldy speaks about

today has been totally unproductive so far.  But there is cake!

About a week ago I put a plan forward for approval to do something in a certain way

It was approved and complimented

Now I have had to change it all around because a 3rd party pointed out something that hadn't occured to the higher ups (and which I couldn't have known.........)

I have therefore spent 4 hours redoing the original job.......

I am likely to have to recoup this time now in half term as it has put me behind somewhat.......which means either I lose holiday at the end of March or have to try and swing term time time off.........


Shame as it is........................warm  and sunny here!

It's only taken us 9 years (almost to the day) to get everyone together....

And yes we missed the WAISter birthday!!!
14/02/2013 at 15:05

Bit like planning in the NHS!!!

14/02/2013 at 15:35

Good point Meldy!

Perhaps we should start planning for our "big birthday" in Feb 2014 now

I am always aware that it is a Feb birthday but for some reason usually think it is a bit later
Blimey - where will we go next year eh? !!

14/02/2013 at 16:19

Do you think it possible to be more exotic than Brum? 

14/02/2013 at 16:24


For the 10k we have....

Mr Tubbs

Half Marathon...




'My Mate J'  (She's almost a WAISTer cos she's met some!!)

Far Far  (ok,ok she hasn't said yes yet but she will)

XB (As above)

Amandax (As above......she should answer her PM's else you get put on the list)

Pom Pomming



Westie ( although a possible racer)

Add your name !! 

I'm thinking I'll stay in Stratford even though it's only half hour away cos I guess we'll be eating ( and drinking) Sat evening and it'll be nice not to have to drive

14/02/2013 at 16:39

Has anyone any experience of using zazzle?

No rude answers boys!!!

14/02/2013 at 17:04
Put me down as a possible and a much less possible half.....!
OH likely to come and cheer +/- teenagers
