May I make a quick statement to The House.

It's rumoured that our MP's are lining themselves up for a pay rise of up to £20,000 per year.  I wrote a letter to my MP yesterday asking him to oppose a rise, that he(they) are overpaid already for their part-time jobs, and that there are far too many of them, especially with the pretendy parliaments everywhere.

If I go missing over the next few days it'll be because I've been kidnapped by the provisional wing of Conservative Central Office and sent off to  their equivalent of a Gulag ( I imagine it would be somewhere in East Grinstead)

I commend this statement to The House.

Good news on Cush and 'The Boy' BTW

Bad mum?

The jury's still out?   One day Spence you cease to become the enemy and they start to appreciate you, well, sometimes.

I had a word with myself and I've relented and kept him off. He's had the trots since Saturday and is still trotting....

Thought with consideration it was wise!

I'm obviously in a belligerent mood, I've just used to report potholes in the road

morning all

woohoo for Daffy - fab racing!

and well done to Berry

and to Spence

and anyone else I have forgotten

there was absolutley no chance of me racing or plodding at all this weekend as it turned out - felt awful, horrendous sore throat which I never have. feels a bit better this morning but I have a very small voice

20/05/2013 at 10:35

((((Far Far)))) hope you feel better soon. Did you get a e mail back from Tewkes!?

what did you say you're doing on the 23rd June??

20/05/2013 at 10:44

Poor old Far Far!

Official times are in - 1.09.35 So PB by, er, (counts on fingers) 11 mins and 51 seconds

Got to 5k point in 34.22 too - pretty speedy for me, and means the second half was less than a minute slower than the first half

(Sorry, I will shut up about it eventually, I'm just rather pleased with myself, as you can tell )

20/05/2013 at 11:11

Daffs, you are allowed to go on about it you deserve too, fantastic going

20/05/2013 at 11:22

keep on going on Daffs we like it

not heard anything back yet Spence. 23rd June we are doing Shrewsbury arent we?

20/05/2013 at 11:26

Ooh you in? I'd forgotten *  thought you were doing something else...





* it's a bit of a worry!!!

20/05/2013 at 11:34

Be cruel to exploit Daff's current enthusiasm...

Would it?

20/05/2013 at 11:41

mmm build on the good achievements made you mean Spence - yes I do think Daffs should enter some more races.........

are we not doing the JW relay this year? I love that one, and what about BBCHM?  I need something to look forward to

20/05/2013 at 12:39

Yes Far Far that's exactly what I meant! How remiss of me

I'm thinking no to the Relay because of Chester...not sure about BBCHM depends when that falls....

20/05/2013 at 13:38

Oi! You pesky pair! I have very little intention of training for anything, so anything longer than 10k is out My sister is on the lookout for the next 'challenge' so I'll wait and see what she comes up with... (might encourage me to sign up for one of the races at Stratford in Nov though... which reminds me - I've not booked in the hotel yet!)

20/05/2013 at 13:45

Oooh well done Daffs....5,10 or 13.1 !!!?

20/05/2013 at 13:54

I haven't booked the hotel either - yikes!

20/05/2013 at 13:56

BBCHM is Saturday 6th July - I think I go away on the 8th but that wouldn't stop me

20/05/2013 at 14:20

Mr Spence is working so I'd have to do the ballet run

20/05/2013 at 14:25

No more than 10, and possibly 5!

Anyway, I don't need you lot to make me to sign up for something stupid - it appears I can do it all by myself (without even my sister to cajole me!) Not pressed the button yet though...

20/05/2013 at 14:34

Press it, press it, press it! 

20/05/2013 at 15:01

Pesky sister has said no!! (Quite reasonably citing that it's £50 to enter, she doesn't own a bike and would need swimming lessons so it'd be rather expensive)

So - who else is in:

8th Sept -

or 29th Sept -

Not decided which yet - north west is closer to me, and more likely to get family support (and talk my sister into it at a later date!), Warwickshire might be easier to persuade other people to do it!

First swimming lesson tonight
