Evening all

Tracey - the wonderful world of work.  Why is it when young, you want to be grown up and we spend most of our time when older, trying to recapture our youth?  Life eh...?

Well done Seren.  There's no stopping you.

Knee is a bit sore after my fall the other week.  Never mind.

A good day yesterday then Seren.

Hope the knee heals quickly NR. Is it affecting your training?

Did you all have pancakes?

Heathy eating is difficult this week what with pancake day yesterday and valentines tomorrow.

Will have to do a few extra laps of the docks tonight!

RK - knee is sore.  Think I will have to have a rest today.

Its snowing outside so wrap up warm

We have snow - very pretty... except that Boff Jnr is staying with friends 20 miles away and coming back today. Snow will clear by the afternoon to be replaced with rain - oh joy!

Do take care of your knee Nutty, rest day sounds like a good plan.

We had pancakes We often have pancakes as they are a nice way to control our egg mountian and also make a quick tasty lunch. We don't have a massive mountain - more like a hillock; about 60 eggs a month. Scary to consider though that we eat that many eggs!!!

I forget how many eggs we would buy in our previous city lives - maybe half dozen every couple of weeks, perhaps more bought in specially if we were planning to bake?

No snow here. Just off to Pizza Express. Yum yum yum. New kitchen was bought from Tesco which means lots of clubcard points, which means lots of pizza.

Hope Boff Jnr got home safely Boffin.

Well done on your run SEren.

Pizza sounds good Tracey.

Hiya folks

How's your knee Nutty?

Well, we did our very best to eat our way through as many vouchers as possible, between 8 of us we managed 10 starters, 8 pizzas and 14 desserts, but we still have £910 worth of vouchers to go. The joys of getting Tesco to fit your kitchen and being unwilling to spend clubcard points on anything that's not 4 for 1!

Have spent the day testing and have to mark it all now so no running.

Sounds great Tracey.  Hope your new kitchen is getting good use too.  Bad news about no running.

My knee is a bit sore.  Ran 4 miles - spirit is willing but the flesh is weak....

Friday tomorrow

Morning. Not good news about the knee NR .

Day off today. Valentines lunch planned at Sosban. Had a lovely present from Mrs RK, a greenhouse with all the stuff to grow my own herbs, salad veg etc - fab!
15/02/2013 at 15:52


Greenhouse sounds great Kev - can't fault growing your own; at least you know there will be no horse meat!

Rest Nutty and your knee will thank you for it.

Didn't know Tesco sold and fitted kitchens - learn something new every day.

Nice present RK.  Happy days

How are things on the farm Boffin?  Is your back improving?

16/02/2013 at 11:14


Nice weather here for a change! Busy time on the farm - checking / repairing fencing and hedging in readiness for lambing in a few weeks.

I have hydrotherapy now for my back - very funny, I spend most of my time wobbling around trying to balance / not drown!


16/02/2013 at 11:45

Morning all. Weather is nicer Boff, managed a run in shorts and t-shirt today - no leggings or coat!

Hope hydrotherapy helps, lots of people recommend it for rehabilitation.

Was glad to get out this morning as not a good week training - pancake day and Valentines got in the way - feeble excuses I know.

Boffin - so long as your back improves, go with it!

RK - a lovely day for it too. 

17/02/2013 at 08:20


Should be a run of nicer days - more shorts and shirt running weather Kev?

Hydrotherapy is a giggle, although I assume it is doing some good? Hard to see progress now as I am practically doing everything as normal - just really stiff and sore!

There is no measure for soreness - in the clinics they ask you to score it out of 6 or 10 - all very arbitrary. If it didn't bother me, I wouldn't be there - and if I were in agony I would be immobile and on pain killers. Non apply so I just plonk for middle ground - which I guess everyone does, so a bit pointless?

Would be nice to be able to get a solid nights sleep without my back waking me - early days yet so premature to start whinging!

How is your knee now Nutty?
