I know what you mean on one count at least.  I gave up smoking in 1984 and it was years before I stopped missing it, especially with a beer, the two went so well together.  I miss the social side too, everyone taking it in turns to hand them around.

Can't say I envy the smokers this weather though!  When I smoked, we all stayed huddled in the warm in our stinky fug.

I hope your shoulder is healing Caz. I have a damaged shoulder too. And a damaged ankle. But they are getting better. Hope your finger is healing Sarah. My finger is fine.

Hash - Yep, it's blowing a hoolie and raining here in Berkshire. And I have been shivering

Re the smoking - er, the reason I have been shivering is because I was outside the pub smoking not just one but 3 fags scrounged off an old mate. DON'T TELL MRS C!! I really enjoyed the first one. This happens about once a fortnight and then I worry for days about my health.

Haha, Chillies looks like he's holding Solb up. One handed too, but then, she is only a light ickle thing. 

I think it might have stopped raining! Homes in a nearby town were evacuated yesterday. There are large puddles here and the stream has made a bid for freedom to romp about in the fields.

Morning mundanies!
I hope all those with feeling sore or poorly are healed soon and that everyone is in the warm ... we saw smokers outaide pubs/clubs last night, it was it was freezing in the wind, I admired their commitment to nicotine, I would give up raher than be that cold!
Need to make porridge ..

Morning. I feel glum today, just because, no reason.

D sits on the front door step smoking if it's wet, if it's dry he sits in the back garden. I told him he might stand a chance of gaining weight if he gave up. That did not meet with an enthusiastic response from him.

I wish the weather was better, I don't like running when it's cold out. I have no desire to go out and get cold and wet and feel dreadful and be on the edge of exhaustion.

Should be doing a long run tomorrow, -2 and snow forecast. I thought that I could do my long run today instead but it's not much better, just no snow, although it appears to be making a valient attempt right now.

There's a marathon on over the Downs today, I wanted to go out and watch but it's too blimmin cold and wet and miserable for that.

I still have my cough which is making me feel tired, I need to go buy some more cough mixture as I have a sore feeling throat, like I've been inhaling sawdust.

Don't feel sorry for me, it's only self pity, I'm sure a nice walk in the woods will make me feel better. I just need to get out, just that I know D wants to stay indoors (near the loo) and wrapped in a blanket. Walking alone is not the same.

Big hugs (((Mrs H))) - but without feeling sorry for you as requested.

B- I think it's not so much about commitment to nicotine - the word is addiction.

Not sure if I'll get for a run today.  Might get organised at home and resolve the issue of my weekly attempt at messiest house of the week before trying for it tomorrow.  The weather doesn't make a difference to me though as far as running is concerned unless it's icy which it shouldn't be - at least round here.

Mr P, yes I do have a shiny BMW but only because last time you saw it I had come straight from a service where they polish it to within an inch of its life.  But it's done 150,000 miles, burns oil, needs a new clutch soon and I can't afford the cost of repairing it when it goes wrong.  The last repair bill was £2000 which I am still paying off.

Now that I am living on my own with no friends closer than an hour's drive, I can't afford for it to strand me somewhere especially with the amount of long distance driving I'm doing.  When the divorce money comes through I will be replacing it with something that requires less attention

I am kitted up to run a 10 mile mudfest in Swinley Forest. I don't want to go, mainly because I will have to walk/jog 2½ miles home afterwards.

But I'm going anyway

(((Caz))) You're in a transition stage, you will get through this.


23/03/2013 at 11:16

(((Chillies))) Yay for sticking with it, have a good 'un.

23/03/2013 at 13:34

Lol DS.  I've been in a transistion phase for 2 years now.  When does the next phase start?  I'm looking forward to stability and mundaneness

Crikey Caz I thought Polly was high maintenance!

That's right, ask me the tricky questions.

I have a medical problem.  My bum seems to be welded to this beanbag.  S'posed to be doing 10 miles......

24/03/2013 at 08:20

Poor Hash. Hope you are able to remove the beanbag soon!

We're off for a swim or a splash! I have even shaved my legs in honour of the event.

We had bacon and eggs, but I bought smoked bacon by mistake again.
