Christmas has become much better since the advent of the internet... much less high street nonsense and as for queing down the aisle in the supermarket... I'd much rather have the lottery of the supermarket delivery van. We buy very little fresh produce, so not much for them to substitute for bizzarre items! Plus, living where we do, it costs us more in fuel to go to a supermarket than they charge for delivery!

Eating the food is my best bit

Well done Nutty!

I have seen the physios this morning - had me trying to touch my toes.... been a long time since I tried that! Saddest thing was I was unable to, not because of my back, more because my hamstrings have got so tight.

Now begins that long road of trying to get back fitness - will even be running one day!

good news on the job front Nutty.

I went out running around Port Talbot after work yesterday and did a Nutty. Full length along the ground I was! One moment running, then on the floor before my brain registered I was falling! Someone had left a door just lying across the unlit pathway! Sore shoulder and ribs this morning!

I hope it settles before the food shopping frenzy tomorrow morning!

Evening all

Sounds like one hell of a day Seren! Soon you can relax and enjoy the festive season.

My new job is another temporary one at Swansea university.  Handy as its only a mile away

Boffin - hope life on the farm is going well

22/12/2012 at 08:35


5 trolleys! Did you have them all articulated wandering around like a big snake - or have a dedicated trolley park? That is some extreme shopping - I know you like long arduous events, but didn't figure that stretched to shopping as well! There can't have been much in that store you didn't buy - I think the store manager should bring you those few items you couldn't get himself out of penance for not stocking them, and utter respect to your shopping dedication.

Fantastic! You have to be well set for christmas now

Life on the farms is good Nutty

Nice not to have to commute too far for work, how long is this temporary contract?

Evening all

Well done Seren.  Every race seems to be a bit of a mud bath these days!!

Temporary contract is for three months. 

Another wet day but at least we are here to see it!

Morning folks.

The rain was really awful. I have a culvert in my garden which was up to it's banks. Had to unblock it too.

need to get on the bike today..deciding whether to chance going out or to go to spin classes or to go on the turbo

I had a visitor who had been staying for a couple of days and needed to get back to Cardiff. We took her to the station to get the 5pm train and picked her back up again at 6pm - no trains at all and no replacement bus service. There were people there from West Wales who were en route to other parts of the country, don't know what you do in that situation if you don't have the money for a hotel. Our guest has spent another night with us and I will have to drive her to Cardiff this afternoon if they haven't sorted it out by then.

Weather is bad for sure but the results in terms of travel and people being flooding. After 2" of rain the country should not be in mayhem. I blame years of under investment in infrastructure and over development.
