I am off home to look after the Staffie ... dont worry if I dont get back in tonight, I am not taking my laptop with me
Yes Daffs, I'm sure that - by now- the garage peeps have realaised that meeting Meldy is a mistake! Sorry that you are germblified, no wonder you were feeling low. I was wondering whether you might be needing a bit more thyroid replacement, but it seems that we can blame the germs instead.
(((everyone playing host to the snotmonster)))
(((Snaily))) sorry that you had to make a tough decision. It is hard when your heart and head are at loogerheads. BTW, the point of 'speed sessions' is to make you faster, then the suffering is over sooner...
Pippi, I hope you lasted through the day.
DL, don't ever lose your sense of humour please - it's the only thing that makes the rest of us look sane .
Meldy, hope you enjoy yourself playing with the staffie, they are one of my fave breeds
Hurrah, hurrah and hurrah Noggie! I think that covers bike carriage, skiing trips and long bike rides.
Podds, I thought of you today when I saw the weather forecast . It is nice and bright here - but cool and windy. Have been out with TM and have eaters' club this evening.
Had a message yesterday to say that 'Auntie', who was discharged home on Monday, is now back in hospital as she was not coping. We expected something like that to happen, but not quite so soon. In a way I am glad that we didn't have to get involved, I am very wary of ending up very involved by dint of being the only ones in the area.
WAIST well xxx
She was hiding in the bathroom for a while, she is a very nervous staffie anyway ... We had to slither down the stairs together making excitable noises until we reached the kitchen ...you had to be there
I LOVE RUNNING
Fridge told me to do 3miles in 32mins. I managed 3 miles in 31:42, on very stiff legs and included 2 small hills and one huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge hill that I managed to run all the way up. Sprinted the last half mile cus I was determined to get under the 32mins target. I feel amazing. (remind me of this after my 8 mile sunday!!!)
Staffies have such a bad reputation, can be brilliant dogs though, our friends have one and she's lovely, powerful enough to pullme off the sofa playing tug, but she's a big softy
DLs explanation of speed sessions made me laugh
Oh sluggie same about the Auntie, hope there is a good care package in place for her.
Been beautiful here today,but bloody freezing, I think I'm going to dig my tights out!
Snaily have you been copy and pasting Spence's posts?
Glad you are enjoying it though.
Sruvived our trip - didn't lose any. Relatively stress free. The museum session in the aquarium was very good - just long enough and the right length. We got to see a starfish, crab and anemone on the visualiser (like a glorified overhead projector to show things on a big computer screen ...) then got to touch them!
Nearly Friday, you say? Hoorah!
Think its time for an early night
Fridge told me to do 3miles in 32mins. I managed 3 miles in 31:42, on very stiff legs and included 2 small hills and one huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge hill that I managed to run all the way up.

made my night Well done you!!
Wow, Podds, that sounds stormy indeed! I'm not so keen on driving through driving sand, but otherwise storms beside the sea are fab
Melds, what great photos! The pirate babes are a gorgeous crew, for sure! And, erm, can you explain about the staffie? More particularly, how did you get her past the GPO??
Brilliant chugging, Snaily! Must have helped you put that difficult work decision behind you.
Nogs, love the sound of all the holiday plans! Would be nice if you could go along with your mates.
Pippi, did they let the kids touch all the animals?? Things have deffo got more interesting since the last school trip I went on!
(((((((((((Sluggie and aunty))))))))
Sorry things didn't settle down as you hoped, but you were unquestionably wise to keep yourself out of the firing line. You have more than enough on your plate now. And it does sound like Alfie is getting braver all the tim
Hope you turf the cold quickly. They can make you feel so rotten.
Coco, have a wuuuuuuunderful time in Orlando! We shall of course want photos and a full account
((((((((((Sue and Heidi)))))))
Wot Sluggie said. And good on you for learning Welsh! I'm guessing that once you get past the phonetics, things get somewhat easier??
DL, you are...what's the word?....irreplaceable!!!
Thanks for the info on ITB and foam rollers. Bit conflicting there, but I can at least try the hip stretches before investing in a roller, I guess. Oh, and fig jam is more like fresh figs than dried, but much yummier than either one))) But I've forgotten about the jam now, cos I'm using up the not-quite-ripe figs making chutney!
We had a marvellous evening with friends yesterday, drinks at their house in the country then we walked along the ridge (pitch dark, no street lighting on this remote lane so Michael brought a torch) and into the village for dinner. Just such a nice time--but it was nearly midnight when we got home so I'm off to my bed now. xx
Oh and Tubs, I think a highland cow hat sounds AMAZING!! Do post a photo!
Wooooo Hoooooo Snaily!!
Pippi - " the museum session in the aquarium ..."
I have a mental image of you all snorkelling through flooded halls looking at artifacts!
Woo hoo Snaily brilliant r* nning
You didn't happen to notice any trusses attached to a boat whizzing past did you Podds?
I'm very glad i left the last ard i was at Meldy, a lot of people have followed suit, to date 7 owners and 12 horses.
The Highland Cow hat is in a pile ready to be sewn up, two horns, 4 ears ( inners and outers) a
Muzzle. I can't see well enough to sew in artiicial light so will assemble and stitch in the morning. I think it looks more like a lion though!
(((( waisters )))))
A bit wet here, the morning at least should be dry enough to get some paid stuff done.
I'd like a hilly ride later too, that may be a damp one.
Coffee, tea, juice and pond water are all ready.
dull here, but damp but wind had dropped a bit. Weather made club speed work session fun yesterday!
Nothing much to report here, works busy and line manager having surgery so going to get busier!
working night on wards tonight.
Sunday I'm doing a 15k ish off road race. Sounds scenic but challenging. 2 weekends til our towns new half marathon ! Not sure I'm ready!
You will be fine Amandax your training has been brilliant
only two weeks till half term
The above announcement was especially for Nogs
Ah Spence, you got me there.
I was most impressed that the teachers managed to find a working day on which to strike. It must be a challenge fitting in holidays, inset days, sick days and a strike.
Oh, and doing a bit of teaching now and again.
I wouldn't want that job for a pension.
There, i think that's all the anger out in one go - much more efective than the Anger Management Programme the magistrates insist I take part in.
I'm off to create beauty in Oxfordshire and a small corner of Buckinghamshire.
Morning one, morning all
i awoke to a small gift laid out by the bedroom door there's nothing quite like an ickle dead mouse to say 'wakey wakey' other than an ickle live mouse I suppose.
((((((snot monsters, poorly aunts, elderly pets, overworked, underemployed, and yard less hosses))))))
I appear to be in the world of education but get 25 days annual leave and regularly ghetto work 12 - 14 hour days. I'm thinking there's nothing quite as joyous as the big society.
I am doing interval training this morning . I walked to the kettle, stopped for a cuppa, have walked back to the kettle and I'm now having my second of the day. I think I can fit a few more of these intervals in quite easily.
Snaily - just stop it. It's not natural.
talking about not natural. We have been invited to my niece's wedding next year. All formal and posh and stuff. The OH is already worrying what she can dress me in so that I don't look like the freaky lesbian aunt or a middle aged man in drag. We're arguing over the monacle and the pipe.
happy so nearly the weekend it's going to be hard to concentrate today
Apparently in iPad land you get to join a ghetto when you try to get to it - if only the real world lived up to the virtual universe
