12TH JULY 2005
morning.tyoical is sunny and today is my swim morning
How are we all?
Seren - it was cold outside so swimming is okay. Nice time of year for running.
Three weeks and some of us will be heading up north for Snowdon marathon. Mad or what?!! Next year, short distance races me thinks
Sorry to hear about your bump Sue!
Top of the class to Tracey!
Nutty, since when was Llanelli Mara a short distance race???
Thanks for the comments re the car bump. It wasn't a huge crash or anything, both of us were going very slowly, and no unpleasantness about it either thank goodness. I did apologise to the young man once I realised that it was my fault and he was fine about it. "accidents happen" he said. I rang the insurance company, they were brill. I get to take my car to Days today, they will give me a courtesy car and sort mine. The offside wing is very slightly out of alignment, you have to look for it, otherwise no damage. I'll lose 3 years no claims, but be back to full no claims in 2 years, so not as bad as I thought. They've also sorted the other party without me having to do any more. The only challenge I have today, is to get away from work in time to get the car in!
these things do happen Sue and pleased that it was done without any unpleasantness.........
i am decluttering here ready for major redecorating...I'm filling bag after bag for charity, recycling and rubbish.........but the rooms still seem to be the same
Just don't worry Sue, its a shame but it is what insurance is for.
The sheer volume of rain we have had this year is getting ridiculous. It is forecast for next week too.
Sue - that doesn't sound too bad, certainly could have been a lot worse, good stuff.
Seren - our house is like that too, where does it all come from?! We moved house twice in six months before we got this house and the rental house managed to fill up with rubbish just as badly despite the fact that we were only there for a short time and trying very hard not to collect any more stuff which would need moving. It's lovely when it'd done though, feels very smug and comfy, for a few weeks till it starts building up again...
Think I might have a day off sport today apart from the short ride to work. Have swum or run every day this week and am feeling too virtuous.
Glad you are okay Sue. The car can be fixed.
Seren - having a clear out is like cleansing the soul!
The original plan was not to do a marathon at all next year then I missed Llanelli this year. Next autumn, I am going to concentrate on shorter distance. Definitely no marathon.....
The rain has been unbelievable WA. Cross country should be a laugh.
Have a good one all. At least it's Friday.
A laugh indeed Nutty.
And I have to say too that Nutty and saw Steve out last night. He was going like a train; looking good there Steve.
Nutty...I have only ran once in the last 12 days...........Snowdon is going to be challenging
Yup, insurance is a con; I am 'obliged' to have farm public liability insurance - 10 million at a cost of around £600 a year. Never claimed on it and unlikley ever to have to - nobody comes here!! It is all based on the fear of 'what if..'
On the bright side, it is not raining .... at the moment
Yes it is. Humph.
Insurance can be a pain but you never know when you need it.
Awful night out there. Survived Calender Girls and am ready for bed
Sleep well all
morning - sun is shining
Seren, I think I am going to find Snowdon challenging too. Things are not really going well in the long run dept.
Morning all -
Had a nice night out in Cardiff yesterday with a lovely Thai meal and a few beers - but thankfully a quiet weekend lies ahead for a change.
Looking forward to having time for a run tomorrow with feeling like I'm squeezing it in - if you know what I mean?
Hope Snowdon goes alright guys.
Enjoy your weekends.
I seem to be squeezing everything in these days, including myself into my jeans. Humph
Tracey, you need to enter a marathon !
