Count me in for London fun. After today's hangover though, I might not be drinking for a while! :/

Bought myself the new runner's world marathon guide. More information to digest.

Likewise - up for a night out in principle, but I'm all over the place for the next few weeks.

I'd like to meet up.... but I think all of my weekends are booked. I am over in the UK on 14th December but am running a marathon the next day so might want to take it easy

My schedule is as empty as it always is, but I'm fairly skint so won't be heading down to Londinium.

I'd heard the streets were paved with gold down there.

It's not true though - they're mainly paved with cheving gum.

Cycletrack to seaside was paved with diamonds!  * OK..not exactly, but the melting hoarfrost looked just as sparkly...*

According to my niece the streets are paved with tourists getting in your way when using something called "The Tube". Sounds very exotic.

Confirmed - i'll be in Sarf Wimbledon on the night of the 12th

I can do 12th...but I ain't going to Wimbledon.  I used to live there...

Not picking up litter?

No the first time, no.

Oh good, my knee has joined in the party now.  Where's DV to give me another round of sympathy??

A knee party? I bet that's being held in a really low joint. Sorry .

Sadly I can't do the 12th as, for the first time ever, I've managed to wangle a work trip to...Paris. If you're going anywhere near St Pancras I could drop in on my way home?

Drama: I can't post from work any more due to our new "social media policy" (disclaimer: anything I post from now on (or posted in the past, come to think of it) is my own opinion and not that of the company I work for).
As far as I can tell, "social media" in my workplace has been defined as YouTube, FB Twitter and Runners World. Everything else is accessible as before

Neil you can't be expected to work under those conditions - get another job!

But there isn't anything else, Neil...

RR, you jammy thing! Will you get any free time at all or  will the day be eaten up by, errr, work?

And where IS DV  ?

ATM - sadly, although I'll be there overnight I'll probably have to socialise with work people. Might squeeze in a lightning-fast spot of sightseeing before I leave. 

Time for a tune, and in keeping with RS's post the other day - here's one for anyone wishing to brush up on their language skills. I know I've posted it before, but I still like it.

oh and what did you welsh do? http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/all-blacks/8014606/All-Blacks-laid-low-by-stomach-bug didn't think you'd be in league with the english and taking advice from the south africans!!  NZ press of course tells it like it very graphically is.

St pancras works for me. I'll come a bit later.

Took a colleague going on maternity out to lunch today in the pub. Had a big lunch and pints. Then ran 8 miles home not long after. Was a struggle and wretched a couple of times. Hopefully have a better session tomorrow.
