Evening all. Back from Warwickshire.

Windy out, glad it's a rest day.

Oddly enough, had a very nice little run tonight. Did a couple of miles with the wind behind us which was exhilarating and then ran back in the shelter of the city and Uplands so the wind was quite manageable. Dodged the rain too which was a bonus.

Sue - take care.  Its easy to get carried away when running.

Tracey - well done on your run.  I got a bit wet and wind swept!!

Seren - it was warm out.

Enjoy day off RK. 

Boffin - good luck with the treatment.

Bit stormy here yesterday - was pleased to be inside doing my VAT return, not exactly a thrilling task, but better than being out in that weather! Put the chickens away at dusk only to find the wind had literally ripped the door apart! - Not that suprprising I suppose considering I had used a reclaimed interior glass panelled door which simply could not stand up to the buffeting from the wind.

Wouldn't have minded apart from having to hang a replacement door in the wind and rain by the light of the interior barn lights and a headlamp!

Just typical how incidents like that happen at awkward times; it had been bad weather all day so it could have broken during the day and I could have dealt with it in daylight on one of my many livestock rounds.

All adds to the challenge

Who would be a farmer eh Boffin? At least it looks still and dry today.

I appear to have flu-ish symptoms here. Feel awful. Been a while since I was last I'll though.

All part of life's rich tapestry Boffin

WA - hope you feel better.

Nice to see blue skies today.  The days are getting longer too

30/01/2013 at 22:33

Much milder out tonight.

Hope the flu is not too bad WA.

Morning all

How are you after your close encounter with a lamp post Sue?

I fell over and head butted the floor last night.  Some things never change!!!

31/01/2013 at 07:36
True to form NR! Hope your head is ok?

End of January is here! First month I've not had an alcoholic drink since I was about 17 I think! Also, even with the snow and ice I still will manage 15 runs, again probably a record for me?

So really pleased and charged with positive energy!

Well done Kev! Are the lack of drinking and the number of runs related?

Nutty - any damage this time?

take care Seren, that wind  is rather cheeky and changes direction just to throw the cold icy rain into your face - or was that just me?

31/01/2013 at 10:30


The weather was certainly being mean to you this morning Sue! Great going Kev; you have it sussed now

Far be it from me to offer advice on injury avoidance... head butting the floor wouldn't seem to be the best option Nutty, hope you are OK!

Cheer up Alex you will beat off that dastardly bug and be better for it.

There is a link there no doubt Tracey as I've never run Saturday and Sunday before, always used to have a late night and a lie in one day on the weekend.

This month I've been up and out running before 9 - 9.30 most days on the weekend.

Well done RK.  The only way is up!!

Sue - sounds like you drew the short straw today.  Was dry but cold  out tonight.

I have a lovely purple bruise on my chin.  Hands are a bit sore with cuts on both and leg is grazed and bruised.  Apart from that I am fine, managed 10 miles tonight so can't be that bad!!  You know me - mad as a  hatter!

Seren - hope you run went okay.

Nearly the weekend
