Ouch! I think we're having a get at each other day here!
Ooops, it wasn't meant to sound like that, sorry! It's just that they're number 2 in my most disliked band ever list. We actually went to Cropredy quite a few times as some of the bands on in the day were brilliant and the festival has a lovely atmosphere, but we had to have consumed many, many pints before Fairport came on.
We generally rose to the challenge
That makes it sound worse really. I thought you were joking to start with! I'm intrigued to know who number one is though.
...ambles in playing 'Cracklin' Rosie' and happy to have pleased everyone.
I've got to confessed I'm all cheesed out. Got up this morning and couldn't be bothered getting breakfast and just ended up carrying on with the cheese from the night before.
Nothing wrong with a bit of 'Cracklin' Rosie'.
Ah, now Mr Diamond would be on a different list, one headed Guilty Pleasures. Along with the fabulous Dolly Excellent nutritious brunch LN!The number one most hated band is thanks to having had aversion therapy. When I was sixteen I had a boyfriend who used to make me sit and listen to all four ghastly whining sides of Out of the Blue, over and over and over again, whilst he studied the gatefold album (remember them? Nah, me neither). I can recognise any track from it within one note, and if I could run a marathon at the speed I get to the radio to shut it off then Paula wouldn't be the woman's record holder.
Oh Hash - I quite literally leap for the off button if I hear the opening chords of any ELO song. But I can actually be physically sick if I hear more than 12 seconds of Mr Blue Sky or Horace Wimp, to name but two. In fact I feel quite queasy just writing the words down
I'm looking at fancy smartphones, I can almost guarantee I'm not buying one this weekend, I'm so nervous of getting the wrong thing!I mowed MummyKJ's lawns today, she has the worlds worst lawnmower, it's called a "Mow n Vac". It's like a hoover so has a single handle and was a blinking nightmare to get through the long, damp grass. I've told her next time I'll be taking my own mower with me.
Strange karma around today. The guy that I used to go to the Cropredy Festival with back in the 90s just contacted me through Facebook. Haven't been in touch with him for at least 10 years.
Chillies to another musical kindred spirit and to having found us on the other sideQuiet in mundaneland isn't it? Hope Mima's housewarming was/is fun and wish we could have been there.
Bright sunny and cold from this side of the water. Still ice and frost. LSR planned for today, it will be short, hilly and very very slow. Hopefully the sun will shine throughout for me. Just need to decide on a route, I thought a 7 mile loop x2 one clockwise one anti clock.
Does your wig not cover your ears JB?
Quiet one today.
Complete the 10k in 63.40. I just set my sights on getting round running all the way and did just that. Good support from all the running club people who weren't running themselves. So that seems to be the answer - I just need to have 5000 people running with me to keep me going. Could be tricky to rally that many on a Tuesday night.
For the first time tonight since the clocks change Mini has gone to sleep without all her soft toys and a lot of protesting. Hurrah!Surely JB has some natty ear muffs to hold the wig on in the strong winds?
Kinda miffed this morning. I appear to have developed a groin strain - no drama, it just seemed to come on quickly and quietly and leave me barely able to walk - except I had to as I had 3 miles of trail and field to cross to get home yesterday. Definitely time for fingers crossed mode for a reasonably quick recovery, but I'm a little concerned that this could be troublesome.
Ouchie indeed. Bad news is that they can take ages to heel, though so long as it doesn't hurt when you move you can still run. I have a groin strain which only hurts when I do kick drills swimming or leg raises, other than that it's fine. I say fine, I mean it doesn't hurt or remind me it's there.
Anyway, I'm off for a day out somewhere today, will do some core and free weights first as D won't be ready to go until about noon.
Ah, KJ, I'm sure you're right, JB must have some natty ear muffs.
