The killings are just beyond belief - America has had far to many of those now, time to stop fussing about and sort it..

On another note, I so enjoyed Merthyr Mawr yesterday - a fab race

They have to accept that there is no longer a place in open society for an assault rifle - or any automatic weapons. Intended purely to kill multiple people; not needed for home defence, sport or even hunting. Anybody who wants to play with such things should go and be cannon foodder in the army.

Saddest thing is the next sicko nutcase is revelling in all the attention and media coverage. I dread to think.

The Pudding Run is a fantastic run which I think should never be taken too seriously - running shoes, fell shoes, wellington boots... don't beat yourself up Alex, enjoy the pudding

Evening all

Pudding Race was a good social Sue.  Thanks for your company.

The years are slipping by.  Another eventful one.  What will next year have in store?  Lots of pies I bet

"I heard last night that the assault rifle belonged to his mother. What on earth is a middle aged primary school teacher doing with an assault rifle? There's something wrong with those people."

Yup ... what is wrong with them !

Bradley, yes, he does seem like a nice genuine bike. I am pleased for him albeit after the Armstrong thing I find it hard to wholeheartidly embrace cycling.

Morning all

WA - apparently his mother was stock piling supplies and guns because she anticipated the end was nigh.  The newspaper also said she enjoyed shooting and would take her sons shooting with her.  Maternal instinct gone drastically wrong.

I think I may have more or less finished my Christmas shopping...

18/12/2012 at 10:04


Well done Tracey something to tick of your list; Boffette and I braved the shops on Sunday - not really shopping, more of an excuse to spend an afternoon out together whilst embracing the Capitalism of Christmas.

Evening all

Nice to get it all done ready for the big day Tracey.

Good time of year for bonding with the children Boffin.

Much milder for running this evening

18/12/2012 at 22:39

Evening, it was mild to.

Well done on the shopping Tracey. I think MWA will never finish and I have not started.

Yes it was nice out last night - not too cold and the street lighting is better this year I think. Last winter you took your life in your hands running along some roads but it seems a bit brighter this year.

Tracey.I am with you with the shopping.I think I am there.............will start wrapping tomorrow after we do the major food shop.now thats the part i enjoy

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

Morning all

I hate shopping and have managedd to do all my present buying via the internet.  Marvellous

Have a good one all

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!

did the supermarket sweep this morning/.............got there for 6 am and left just before 10..........buggered up the till by having too many items for it to cope with............but we will eat like kings till February and most of it was paid for in saving stamps

managed to play another game of squach this afternoon with OH.........we are definitely getting a bit better and i'm having to really work hard to keep on winning..5-0 today...........makes up for him running faster than me

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!

Sue - really sorry to hear you hurt yourself.  Take it easy for a few days.

Have a good one all.

Sue ... nasty. hope that it recovers.some wine and mince pies might help....

Nutty.I managed a 30 min turbo and a 15 min run last night.............seems a bit strange going out running for 15 mins but its on the plan.....and i was glad it was only a short one.......

Nutty.is the job in cardiff or closer to you

21/12/2012 at 11:51


perhpas not what you expect to find in the path Sue - hope your shoulder and ribs feel better soon.

Supermarket shopping for 4 hours - you are braver than I Seren! - How many trolleys did you need?

Good you have a new job lined up Nutty.
