I will feel blessed should you think they are good enough to oggle!!

Im mopping the kitchen floor twice a night this whole week in the hope it might look clean by Sunday

Wide awake

Be a love, Spence and mop my floor too - I hear the mopping movement is meditative n so aids sleep 

I am currently being pursued by bi polar woman who is dangling all the good bits relationships bring in front of me. Who wouldn't want that but she has form for unexpected behaviour n that is the problem. And she's the best of the bunch in years!  Right, nice commute n sweaty underground to forget her;-)

morning all, Coffee on

Morning team.

Yums, good luck in your search for a soul mate. I don't think the internet had been invented when I last dated so I have no concept of how it works or the pitfalls involved.

Melds, sorry to say that I'd rather head for home Sunday morning than watch loads of bikies. Also HL has decreed that we attend a lunch at the vicarage on the Sunday - the bride's mother is a vicar, so that's most of my repertoire out of the window.

Coffee is ready.

morning, bliddy raining this morning so no run.  I tell you we're in monsoon season here!

*snaffles a coffee*

I have seen spence's legs on FB, they are deffo oggle'able

There is no point whatsoever in me trying to look good when running, I look like a huffing puffing big tomato whatever I wear!!!

Yums the offer is always there, for bin taking out and jar unopening

Fat Club wasnt a disaster surprisingly, I lost 1/2 lb.  So back on it now along with the plodding

Work calling so better get to it.

tis rainy and grey here - is that summer over then?

I don't even own a skirt let alone have any concept of why one would want to look more feminine whilst running by wearing a skort. I have plenty checked shirts and sensible shoes though if anyone wants help looking more like a lumberjack.

would offer my friends for dating purposes to Yums, however, have very few as I'm an anti social git. I'm also thinking that the geography, the fact that they are either spoken for or straight, may be problematic. I do have two cats that I'm happy to rehome if anyone's interested though....

Glad the international WAISTer meet went well and the man purporting to be Mr P didn't have any patio marks on his person.

Also - anyone else noticed that Coco lives with a bacterial resistant infection - MrSA - is it a term of endearment?

If you could spare some vibes today for OH, she's got trouble at t'mill so to speak. dodgy dealings at work making her life a tadge stressful, and so making mine quite painful by default! 

Can't get your link Chuggy but will try again later as prancercize sounds intriguing.

*waves to the day shifters*

Happy Wedensday one and all

Well done Snaily!  That's 1/2 lb in the right direction and given the week you had with the Queen Mum, it's really good that you still lost.  Keep going and keep running - its all really working for you.

Yums - enjoy the smoke today.  Let me know if you ever in my neck of the woods (Waterloo / Strand) and want to try a WAISTer meet up for coffee.

Desperately in need of coffee this morning - did not sleep well last night again in spite of MrSA having kindly bought the most expensive ibuprofen he could find in Sainsburys for me.  Somehow he managed to come home with "melt on the tongue" lemon nurofen tablets which cost 2 quid!!  I normally buy the cheapest generic at about 80p per packet!  Anyway, they tasted revolting and didn't help much.  I might need knock-out pills tonight to help break the not-sleeping cycle.

Spence - what's the deal with the kitchen floor?  Are you going to be filming Prancercise 2 on it on sunday?  They won't be interested in the floor, I tell you - it's the hair that's the attraction!

Happy WAISTing all - feels a bit like the silly season on here. Or possibly I'm so sleep-deprived that I'm hysterical

I'm totally hysterical now!!

Cococat - I love the huffing tomato description, I am more like a huffing beetroot 

Footpather -  Is that Liversedge near Cleckheaton? Yes it is, just a couple of miles away, I run that way quite a bit.  Do you know it?

SS - Well done with the 1/2 pound, keep plodding on you will get there.  I have been there too and its only the running that keeps me in shape.

I was trying to work out The MRSA thing too.  

I assumed it was a MR. SA. not a MRS. A.

Tis dull and wet here too.  HL has bunked off for the day visiting rellies down from Scotland.  I opted to work - well the plan was 2 hours work and a four hour ride, both will be difficult in this weather so I'm off into town for a coffee and chores.

31/07/2013 at 09:28

I hadn't noticed that at all Nogs  - it made perfect sense to me 

The OH is from South Africa originally and in a post way-back, I just started to refer to him as MrSA (Mr South Africa) because it seemed appropriate.

Any other suggestions for what I should call him on here would be welcomed 

31/07/2013 at 09:43

C, difficile?

Be careful what you ask for Coco.  I worked with a bloke who was known as Boo Boo.  he got promoted to sergeant and, in order to enhance the dignity of his new post (tee hee) he asked the boss not to call him Boo Boo in front of the troops.

Thereafter he was known as 'Boo Boo in front of the troops'

I'm orf.

31/07/2013 at 09:49

You can't go changing MrSA now Coco - it's comedy genius. 

31/07/2013 at 09:51

It wasn't love at first sight, he grew on a rash

morning all

I would like to confirm that Spence's legs are indeed worth oggling

its raining! boo! I have plodded this morning 4 miles hoorah

31/07/2013 at 10:20

sorry forgot to welcome LL

about getting faster, you should keep most of your runs at an easy pace to avoid injury, but it is worth doing one of your runs each week at a more uncomfortable pace! or try spurts of speed up to say the next lampost etc (as Yumms said) - good luck!

Yums, I'm not a hard Northern bird at all.  I was sweaty and my muscles were aching. Thought it would make sense to take a cold bath to alleviate both, lol. I was soon out, in my fluffy dressing gown and sat in the very warm conservatory thawing out.  I've got to say my muscles are fine today though.  Oh and I lost 1b at Fat Club last night, 2 more and it will be 4st.

Well done on the half pound Snaily.  In view of all the eating you had to endure during visititations I think that is fabulous.

Lesley, I live in East Bierley   FP Jnr went to Whitcliffe Mount school (she has just left this year).

As for the huffing tomato.  That's why I sometimes dress up in fancy dress when I am doing runs.  Might as well have people laugh with me than at me.  When I dressed as a red devil I didn't need make-up, just needed a couple of miles and my face matched my outfit.  If you can't be fast you might as well be funny.

Spence, I was wondering about the kitchen floor as well?

Have a good day in the smoke Yums.  Not sure about the bi-polar stalker though!   Does she swing both ways (sorry bad joke).

Lots to do today, caravan to sort out, visit my mate Mark in hospital. go to a local market and get gas for the caravan.  Better get started.
