I think I'm ok with small traces at the moment by 'eck.  I'm not completely GF as I'm still using up cupboard stock and not everything sets me off.  I seem to be ok with sausages still, but once the stock have gone I'll only be buying GF.

Who has dropped out of Legends Caz? I've lost track of who is coming...

Evening Legendary nutters

Mad day.  Snow was very scary, so I braved the 2.5 mile drive to the station at 6.30am, got the train, ran 2.5 miles from the Cambridge station to work courtesy of spikes and many, many layers to find that the rest of them had arrived on time in their warm little cars thanks to tin pot little local journeys along main roads.

Brownie points total for getting there expected:  9583045830587928347293487

Brownie points total for getting there received:  0

MrKJ is on a plane to Milan, after making me issue an amendment yesterday to my post, his flight to Turin was cancelled so he's flying to Milan afterall. It's like I predicted it! If only I could predict the lottery numbers with such accuracy.....

Zero brownies points was harsh, Hash.  Although personally I would only have given you 9583045830587928347293486.  You were being just a bit greedy.

Morning all - it's cold but sunny and really pretty here today - no snow although the main news on the local radio show is about the bad roads all over the rest of Norn Iron! - we seem to have gotten off lightly.

+1 more brownie point for hash to make up the total again

*passes Hash real brownies because they're better than points*
Bit of a scary moment in the car this morning, but I made it into work eventually. I could do with a lay down though! My heart was pounding!

Take care on the roads everyone! I hate driving in the snow and ice ... I think you all deserve brownie points for getting to work! I have to drive to the physio later, not worried about the main roads, but he is a bit out in the sticks and I ama bit concerned about what the roads will be like out there ...

Snow melting here. Tis a few degrees above freezing out there. Have been playing with the cat, she like outside but I brought her back in again to stop her from freezing. I'll let her out again though, although she can use the catflap if she really wants, silly girl.

I'm trying to report a gas leak here, except the emergency number doesn't work, it's outside not in, even so, I'd like to get it sorted. I can smell gas in our hall but that's it and that's only because the air from outside creeps into the hall, something to do with the big gap at the bottom of the door.
Pain in the ass regardless. Have'nt been for my run yet, only wanted to do a mile.

Morning all. Lumpy rain here today and bloomin' cold too.

Ooh, if there's 9583045830587928347293487 brownies going can I have one, please? 

22/01/2013 at 15:43

Mouse, not to worry, there is no gas leak. It's the fault of the French.

"It is an unpleasant odour which may cause some people to feel slightly nauseous but it will dispel naturally."

Probably some garlic munching competiton going on over there.

Cake - I saw your post re. the 10K in Dorset - it would be a long way for me to travel for a 10K.

So, I reckon I'll be finished by about 7.15 this evening. Anyone else fancy 6 miles in the dark on icy pavements with trail shoes and a head torch? Ah go on!

(((Wonderful Mundanies)))

Status report:

Bin emptied

Cheese safe full

Snow dog melted

Real dog not melted

All is good

22/01/2013 at 19:51

 And it's a hilly one. I don't like 10k distance either 

22/01/2013 at 20:31

I'm marshalling.  I don't do running any more

22/01/2013 at 23:08

I always liked 10K. Long enough but not too long Not hills though. Hills are evil. 

I have a website! - let me know what you think please, and if you spot and typos. Ta and please

23/01/2013 at 00:12

Sarah - I will forward your site to the food/nutrition/calorie obsessed Mrs C forthwith.

Cake, Saffy - I kind of like 10K because a lot of my racing is halfs or duathlons, so I can run 10K quite hard without the fear of running out of gas/dropping dead of exhaustion. (I'm by no means fast, btw)

in mundane news STOP BLOODY SNOWING 

23/01/2013 at 00:14

SArah - that link didn't work for me - pls repost url

23/01/2013 at 00:28

I hope that works!
23/01/2013 at 05:25

You put in an extra space at the end before Sarah, possibly you cut and pasted it in without noticing.

Woot! for this exciting new adventure.

Edited to add: I still like cheese.
