Yay for Blouse! We have no bananas at the moment but Sainsbury's are due to rectify this situation between 9pm and 10pm this evening.Next door have taken to parking their bins in front of our fence and then not taking them in again. MrKJ is beginning to get a bit annoyed by it and he's usually a very calm chap.
Who ya gonna call?
Today I have replaced the main light in the kitchen so I can now see what I am cooking again. I haven't replaced the two in the cooker hood as I haven't worked out how to get the cover off.
I have put ant killer down. The lack of a bin in my house means that they were enjoying the remains in the carrier bag on the floor far too much. Or a positive note, at least I've had some house guests for the last couple of days
My usually mundane working day was livened up by a cheese / pensions related news story. Definitely a first and what couldn't I do with £60m worth of cheese!
(((Mr P))) It's good that there are organisations out there to help abused bins.
(((KJ))) Poor Mr KJ, it's little things like neighbours mucking with the parking status quo, that can really niggle.
(((SCaz))) *waves* (not wibbly wobbly blue ones, you see enough of those).
(((LR))) At least with the cheese, you know it's still worth letting it mature.
There's not a lot of noise about the VLM in these parts, which seems a bit sad. Do we have nobody to cheer on? No talk of mudchute, cheering, balloons etc?
Thanks fab lot.Yep, know what you mean DS Just leaving this for Caz, hoping I've got the right person. I have a feeling you were as wobbly and nervy as I am on a bike? This lot are national, I'm giving it a go on Sunday. Off for a test wobble later on as the bike hasn't been out of the shed since last year.http://www.goskyride.com/Breeze/IndexNot sure why it has to be women only though - surely there are wobbly blokes out there too?
I am doing London
I am not joking, i have got a cold but I really haven't gone on about it. I have done OK thisis the first time in all my londons that I haven't been raring to go so we will just see how it goes. It has put a bit of a damper on things.
*Sends happy healing vibes MrP's way*
I'm just sat here thinking that I should be on the bus now on my way to the plane to go and do that London too...I will do it next year...for definite!
I am doing nothing. I could try and sort out a portfolio for next weeks interview or I could go for a run.I'm not sure that I want to go to this track meet tomorrow. i'd be doing track in the morning anyway, I just don't feel up to racing.
Not sure about VLM, half of me wants to go the other half doesn't. I'd miss my long run which is about the only running I'm doing at the moment. David has said he'd like to go but I think it would be too much for him. That is bad as it means it's just one more thing he can't do and he's already depressed by all the things that he used to do that he can't do anymore.
I feel like I'm on perpwetual hold at the moment.
Hope you feel better on Sunday Mr. P. or no one will want to snog you.
(((Hash))) wobbly? I'm like a jelly with pedals.(((gfb))) You'll rock it next year.
(((mrs mousey & D))) *hugs* 'cos I don't have the words.
Hash, I might have sorted the bike problem.
I was talking to a neighbour yesterday. We have only ever exchanged hellos before. Turns out that he is very active in the local running club but he is currently coming back from injury so was trying to persuade me to run with him. He is also into bikes and mainly riding at the moment until he gets his running fitness back. He doesn't have many commitments (lives alone) so we would be able to find time to go out for rides when it fits in with my schedule. I'm going to try to arrange something next week
Yay Caz! GFB Sensible's pants, but, well, sensible. Tons of luck for Sunday Mr P and hope the manful clears up between now and then'Zackly DS. It seems a shame to cut out half the population when the common denominator is bike nerviness.
I've never understood why some women feel that they have to separate themselves from the other half of the population. You get women only gyms, running clubs, boot camps, cycle groups etc. I think it just makes it more intimidating to men to sign up with new activities as they don't have any other 'beginners' to go with
I don't have any problem with women who feel more comfortable with women only environments, if it helps some women try things they otherwise wouldn't. I go out early in the morning before my morning swim, that way there's very little traffic and I can practice silly things like looking over my shoulder, or signalling etc. without worrying if I wobble a little. If I am a little slow going up a hill, I can think about my cadence/gears rather than having to worry about causing a problem for traffic behind me. It suits me for now, I just wish we'd had a less crappy winter so I could have started a little earlier in the year.
I don't have a problem with anyone doing whatever they need to to get active but I feel that it does reinforce the stereotypes. Many women never enter races other than the R4L, for example, because they are scared of running with men as they see them as so competitive. If they only ran with men all the time then they would see that it is only a small minority that are comptitive and that not all women are 'fun' or social runners
I get that Caz.
If women ran with men more then they wouldn't get a word in edge ways, not in my running club anyway. I just listen to the men nattering to work out how far behind they are dropping.
Morning. A sunny one here but a bit chilly. brrr. Must not spend the day on the pc.
