So long as its warmer Boffin, I can deal with rain!

Christmas is creeping up fast.  How is the tree doing Tracey?!

Tree is fine thank you Nutty. Kittens are not remotely interested but you never know what they are going to do next - work party last night and my secret santa present was a pair of microwaveable slippers. Was really chuffed as I often have cold feet so I tried them out as soon as I got in. Zapped them, put them on and was contentedly wriggling my toes when the kittens launched themselves at the slippers - they were biting, scratching and generally trying to kill them and they wouldn't give up despite being batted away repeatedly. It was most unnerving - I was chatting happily to Bob one minute and getting my toes bitten the next. As I may have said before, bloody cats!

Farm cats are fine - feed them in the barn, they amuse themselves outdoors and do not come in the house at all - the pet cat different story! Never happy wherever it is and vomits around the house as it pleases - very nice!

Nice to have nice cosy slippers  - wonder what they are lined with that is microwaveable - and is it harmful to cats?

Very chilly this morning - cattle are not impressed with their water tub being frozen - not good for running as all the pavements must be a lottery - to slip, or not to slip that must be the question?

Had a good run despite the cold this evening.  Stroll on milder weather, even if its wet.

Tracey - great present.  Your story reminded me of when I stayed with  my sister years ago.  I slept on the living room floor with two cats using my nose as a target.  I had to take shelter under the covers and woke up with a bloody nose!!!

Boffin - slipping is a problem.  Just have to go slower.  I fall over fresh air any way!!

Evening .. back for Gt Yarmouth again. Been to see brother and get teeth sorted. Nice run round the broads as usual and it was blimmin cold up there. Bought him a copy of the Horologican too.

I saw the dentist this week too. Nothing needed doing thankfully. The dentist told me my teeth were "normal". Better than abnormal I suppose but talk about damning with faint praise!

Excellent run last night. One of my running mates has been ill and her running has suffered badly these last few months. She was close to despair recently but a prescription for the right sort of inhaler and a little bit more time has made a world of difference. She was pounding up the hills with me and another friend struggling to stay with her, it was really lovely to see.

Thats great news about your friend Tracey.  Nothing beats running.

WA - glad you fitted in some quality time with having teeth done.

Its grim out there today.  Off to away day with work

14/12/2012 at 10:33


Have fun Nutty. Pity your friend has been ill Tracey, but good news the new inhaler is working well for her.

Was chilly for sure yesterday - warmer today but wet with it.

I survived, just. Nice pasta lunch which was highlight of the day. 

Count down is on for Christmas.

How are the animals Boffin?  Hope they are all snug in the warm

Cattle and poultry are indoors, the sheep are outdoors - I often wonder about the animals outside and then am reminded that if I were cold I might put on a wollen jumper -  that's just what the sheep have! Top that with the lanolin in their wool and they are warm and dry. The cattle are indoors more for management than their comfort - allthough they don't do so bad were they are! When it is wet like this the cattle turn the fields into a mud bath - which means no grass for them to eat next year. As for the poultry - well they are fox food outdoors in the winter.

The away day wasn't a Christmas party then Nutty? Christmas is definately on it's way - chocolate reindeer yesterday - too early yet for todays!

glad you enjoyed the Thai Elephant Nutty - p'raps we could make it a ThaiPie fest evening sometime.

I went to the Copper Penny (a new place in Port Talbot) on Friday with some friends - now that's a culinary experience to avoid in future . The food was mundane at best, but very overcooked and they forgot the pudding course!!

Some good news re Park run for those who haven't seen it. A great possibility that we'll have one in Cross Hands before spring.

16/12/2012 at 08:54


Christmas party would have been nicer idea I'm sure - maybe you could have talked about that instead?

One to avoid there then Sue - overcookin gfood is one thing... but forgetting the pudding!

Morning all. Just catching up.hope everyone is well and you are all looking forward to the festive season.

Is it the Pudding run today? Reckon it must be. Good luck all you runners and pudding people!

Nce 6 miles this morning along the beach, unfortunatley didn't manage to avoid the rain! Have done emails and pottered round kitchen so now off for bubbly bath I reckon. Have two weeks off and nothing to do - bliss!
