ohhhhhh yums, shame about the "said person" perhaps you can find someone in the convent to convert!!!  (tho not sure that is the done thing)

feeling a bit ouchy this morning due to not cooling down properly yesterday so need to keep moving!

happy hump day the weekend is nearly here!

Happy Hump Day ??!! 

Had to think a minute to realise that Snaily wasn't being racy!! Wooly head is my excuse

Morning All and especially the lovely Yums - we thought you or No2 might be in permenent detention following parents evenings 'n' stuff last week

Sunny here again of course as I am in the office but I have got myself a day off in lieu on Friday ................ when it's due to rain........... Oh well

Night before is a Ladies meal out at the casino with a betting chip and instruction thrown in - can you believe that at my age I've never been in a casino before ?

Morning WAISTers  

Been a bit 'on other things' recently, so not posted.

Well done all on the runs, Snaily, your coming on fine now, nice one!

PP Welcome and dont worry about speed, getting there is far more important.

I'll read back more later, just a quick hi really

Howdy, good to see you Yums, shame about 'said person'  tis always the way!!

can I ask for a few vibes for the hubbie of 'My Mate J' he's in hossie with a suspected heart attack  he's younger than me ! Worrying time

Interval session done 5 x half mile

06/03/2013 at 14:06

Goodness Spence, worrying indeed ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ fingers crossed

Well run though!

 Hi Cheesy, and you Yums! Glad you've been out frolicking rather than in detention. At least you had fun trying though I suppose!

I took the morning off work and did musical things Which I much preferred to actually doing work. I can feel a career change coming on

Daffy, I always find the things I don't have to do are the most enjoyable. I suspect that would hold true whatever job I do.

Hello and welcome Paul. Well done on getting up to 5k. We are a gobby lot, so don't try to keep up with our chatter at first. Just jump in and tell us aaaaalll about yourself.

Nice to see Cheesy and Yummy back again too . What a pity that the datee doesn't light any fires. 

(((Poorly peeps)))

(((C1))), I hope that the news was good.

(((Spence's friend))). A friend of ours has a heart attack when he was just 40. It was a real wake-up call and he is now a healthy 60+ year old.

DL, no wonder your mojo hasn't reached you! It is prolly trailing you around the country. Either that or in a 'lost property' office at a railway station somewhere.

It is a grey miserable day here, and my mood is much the same. No reason, just feeling a bit bloo.


WAIST well xxx

We're home.  I appear to have a cold and damaged ribs - again.

It was fabbo - HL and I are now officially skiing deity

I kept looking out for Yums but she was a no show

More tomorrow, after my read back.


06/03/2013 at 18:39

Evening all

I was about to recap on my day and then I realised I had forgotten where I had been and what I had done .. its an age thing!

I have been for a run and I have been at w*rk since 3 until 11pm and then I shall be going home, tomorrow I have the delight of chcking up on the state of the FGO and if he is very lucky he can go for a mooch round the woods with his mate Duffy who is dirtier than he is .. I am sure they are in competition

I am aiming to swim the IM distance tomorrow in the pool if I can get there in time (schools come in at 1330) and then I have physio at 3 and I shall squeeze a bike or gym session in before coming back to the crime face tomorrow night!

I hope J's hubbie is faring well Spence, sounds like they did all the right things at the right time if he is sleeping

Noggs, what the hell have you done to your ribs this time?

Sluggy, it was that promise of spring on Tuesday what did it and then it went all grey and dismal today !

06/03/2013 at 19:04
Gawd Meldy I'm worn out reading that!!

Ms Oza has just mentioned snow for Sunday!!!?

06/03/2013 at 19:27

In that case I shall not be doing a long bike on Sunday!

06/03/2013 at 19:36
I'm refusing to believe it!!

Hope J's hubby is ok

its raining here now, first rain we've had in ages, its madness considering we were all under water a few weeks ago!

MrS has come home from work with 6 huuuuuuuuge parsnips, 2 sprout shrubs, 15 leeks and 2 cabbages, its great him working "the land" so better start looking for some soup ideas!

06/03/2013 at 20:56
Mmm curried parsnip soup !
06/03/2013 at 21:06

well I thought Spence might have left the bucket on the floor and bent over to put her head in it - so I thought M...eldy was being very wude saying it was better!

Wot no bike ride in the rain, M...eldy ? Wuss

(((spence mate J's hubby)))) and ~~~~~~~~~~~~hubby~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May sound odd, spence but he sounds as though he has been' lucky'

welcome home, Noggs. Sore ribs ? Did HL kick you out of bed again


Musical things, Daffy ? Better than most of our days me thinks. Do you get to play with the dressing up box tomorrow?

(((sluggy))) Why didn't you say - I woulda shared my sunshine  - was glorious this morning

Oooh, DL, I have your mojo - sorry, I just borrowed it to try it out and I quite liked it and hung onto it abit too long

I am about to do the deed. They aren't local so a phone call will have to do - I cant let them come down to see me and then tell them I'm not feeling the love when they arrive and I'd worry about them driving home. The other day they were asking me how I would feel about them going on their three month Buddhist ordination retreat - they wont be ordained for at least 8 years! Run away, run away 

06/03/2013 at 21:16
"They!?" How many you got Yums!!?

Yes, I think you're right he has indeed been extremely lucky!
06/03/2013 at 21:40

deep breath yums, you know its for the best.  The woman of you dreams is just round the corner. 

early night for me, my running stuff is ready for the morning and the clock is set.  So the prep is done I just have to get my ass out of bed!!!

06/03/2013 at 22:13

I'm not sure who Yums' "they" are either???

(((J's hubbie)))

I get to play with the dressing up box tomorrow!!! It's world book day!!!! But I have a doctor's appointment straight after so I will have to do a quick change... despite Pippette daring me to go in full costume dressed as the Queen of Hearts - means I have to take in 6 boxes of jam tarts ...
