I ought to mention that not only did we have J's birthday party in December but we had it ON my birthday, which the adults had (over) celebrated the night before. My bezzy mate in her best Moss Side manchunian voice said to me in the small hours of the morning of, and I quote: "What the fuck possessed you to ever think this was a good idea?'
We then drank lots of coffee and took over excited hoards of small female people indoor climbing.
Whoops! I had to phone the inlaws and apologise this morning, I've just noticed that my default billing address on Amazon is theirs! It was because they bought something using my account last time they were here, and I didn't realise until now that it's stuck as the default.
Good job I haven't ordered 'The Idiots Guide to Adultery' or anything like that. They have just bought a pair of power gloves and a stretching anatomy book
I expect they will enjoy those
I still havent run. I should just cross out 3 days in every month and accept it rather than think, oh its not normally that bad
Got a meeting with someone very senior today and I have to actually leave the building for it which is why the raincoat I picked up has mud all over the front of it I shall hope its not raining when I go. Ah, it doesn't matter, no one expects scientists to look smart or anything.
Hope the meeting goes/went well. I was at work today where interesting things are happening! More when I know more.
I'm getting a bit brain stuck on wondering why people do what they do, especially the unpleasant stuff. I know this doesn't really make sense so I'll go back to 100 missions (android app and bloody addictive).
No running today but I might do some weights later.
I still havent run. Feel completely wiped out and my head has ached for days. If this is old age I going now!
Sorry you feel shit, you did put your body through a lot on the weekend.
I've got a day off today, just watching D roll around on the floor (physio exercises), of course Cole thinks that anyone getting down on the floor is an invitation to play.
I'm feeling a bit low and stressy so will go for a run in a bit with Cole, that'll help.
It's prob just that. I never give my body credit for what it does
I'm going to have a doggy to run with me one day. I'm actually working on kidnapping Gus
Gus is a bit er.... visible!
I adore running with Cole, we've just got such a strong bond through it. Doggy therapy! (as opposed to dogging therapy which is something entirely different)
We've just done 7 miles up in the forest.
Now half hour of weights whilst watching crap TV.
Well have had quite a chilled day, it's actually not very chilled generally in our household as D has an OU exam coming up. I can tell he's stressed and I rely on him to be the laid back one. The problem with our house is that it's pretty open plan and we have some big rooms but not enough rooms when someone needs a bit of private space to work or study.
The weekend is filled up with other people's children helping to prepare J's party and then Sunday being the party. I'm just going to organise it all to give him a bit of breathing space, I like doing girly stuff with the kids so we'll shop and bake without him on Sat. He will be grateful!
Tomorrow I've got another day off but I really need to do tri admin stuff for the club that I should have done a while ago. I have a huge 'to do' list which also includes school governor stuff. I spread myself too thinly and then stress about letting people down; but I don't let people down because I do it when I get to this stress level.
But it's not good time management.
The girls have just announced that it's 'pets day' tomorrow where pets can eat as much as they want and get a makeover. Run for the hills Cole! (With me of course).
More tummy trouble, it's been a week now, I do wonder if there's any point putting stuff in the north end if it's just going to come out the south end.
And the toaster has died.
At least it's Friday.
Got my GFA acceptance form for London today, however many times I do it, I still get a flutter of butterflies when the mag comes.
Yeah, made the team for the parrett relay, we won last year, but you may remember my paranoia about getting lost. I swore I'd only run it again if I ran the last leg again. However I can't because I have to get back as D is working lates that weekend.
Here goes Google earth again.
Shit, I've looked at the route, I'm so crap at self navigation races. We're putting in 2 male teams and 1 female, the guy running leg 1 for male A team (the leg I'm running now), I will see at the tri club committee meeting on Tuesday, I'm going to rely on him to sort the route out for us
Right, we were invited to a party tonight for a friend who has just walked a large part of the Great Wall of China, but I'm not feeling brilliant so will just cook piri piri chorizio (sp?) for us and my neighbour. She announced she had one and could I do something with it, so I popped round this morning and told her I was there to get her sausage to marinate. I was looking forward to a lie in tomorrow before a busy weekend, but had forgotten that I'd signed up to a Sportsmaker meeting in the morning. Worth a drive into town for coffee and biscuits.

I'm really pissed off. Definitely got some lurgy. Sore throat earache and no appetite. I need to be better for Sunday! It's the last race in a series and I've done all the others.
I'm not right either, but it let me forget my own training and sort out tri paperwork which I was putting off today. You have to roll with it...
And enjoy home comforts rather than pushing, pushing. I walked Cole round one of the big cropped wheat fields this morning with the ball flinger thing and a huge mug of milky coffee.
I think as a society we have lost the ability to live in the moment. I'm trying to get it back, but it's like dreaming about flying and never leaving the ground. That's the difference between childhood imagination and being an adult unless you really try to keep hold of it. I've lost the Peter Pan me.
O...k...a...y... fingers crossed that tummy is a *bit* better this morning.
Just saw that on FB, great time!
I've been at a Sportsmaker introduction event, it was really good fun! And we got free stuff!
