Morning all

Marathon running - very unsure about it. Not convinced it's natural, healthy, a good use of precious time... on the other hand there's nothing like it. Maybe there's no such thing as the ultimate sport but to all intents and purposes...

Back on planet plod, all good here. Mock election was a riotous success, they debated really well and understood far more about the advantages and disadvantages of First Past the Post than they would have done from a book. Amazing to think none of them have a vote at home, we take so much for granted in the UK.

Looking forward to the pie fest - I got your address thanks Nutty

As a Nation far too much is taken for granted, lots of pontification about what should be done and plenty of whinging about things which don't suit and yet we get such pathetic turn out to elections.

Glad it went well Tracey.

Boffin - it should be good.

Seren - good luck to your OH for London.

Swim this morning before work and a short run tonight.  Can't wait to get a decent run in!

Morning all

Last day of proper teaching on this course - they are lovely but it's hard work and I'm really glad it's over. Hoping to get a bit of free time after marking and exams next week - maybe do a bit of swimming.

Nice plod last night - five miles along the beach with no wind against us, had forgotten what that's like!

Dry weather is nice to be out and about in, although the weather in general has played havoc so far this year - admittedly mainly the cold, but now it has warmed up a bit and we are getting a bit of rain maybe the grass will begin to grow and the animals can have something good to eat.

The frazing has been so poor this year that the feed store ran out of concentrated sheep feed due to unusual high demand.

Be better soon

It is lovely living here as we do, although it does make you think just how hard life would have been before the advent of international trade to fill the gaps in supply. - Just how often do we pop down to the supermarket to see there is no food to buy?

... not quite sure what 'frazing' is, but maybe it is fun? Methinks it should have been 'grazing' !

I'm also looking forward to the piefest 

While we are waiting - here is a pie for the mathematicians among you

'Frazing' - extremely cold grass?


LOVE the pie chart Sue!

Evening all

Nothing quite like pie!

The weather has been mad.  Nice running this evening though.  Went out on bike first thing and got very wet!!!  didn't fall off which is always a bonus!!

Boffin - life on the farm must have been tough.  It is lovely and I so enjoyed the gathering last year.

Tracey - glad the term is nearly over.  I am sure they have all done well with your guidance.

yes, nice chart Sue !
13/04/2013 at 08:41


Excellent pie chart - especially like the fact that there is more pie to eat than is eaten

Weather looks warmer and unsettled for the next few days - better not bring out the BBQ just yet!

RK - nice to have time off.  Back to normal for you this week?

A bleak morning here.  Ventured out first thing and did 4 miles across the front.  another 9 this evening.  Feels great to do decent mileage again.

Meal with family today. 

Not enough hours in the day on the weekends!!

This time next week, it will all be over for some

glad you are running again Nutty......


I had a long bike ride mid wales yesterday..definitely the wetaher to make you want to sell your bike forever....

and the road were bad and so a couple of punctures which doesn't help maters......


and now I have a really dirty bike to clean today

running is so much easier

15/04/2013 at 08:00

Not the distances, terrain and at the times you do it Seren!

I also enjoyed my run yesterday. Wind blew us along the front but we dodged it coming back by going up into town. I love it when  you can do that, feels like something for nothing. 

Got 21 essays marked yesterday - nearly there now.

Well done Tracey - at least you mark better than a Chemistry teacher I know... marks all work with a tick and a 'well done' - that's formative marking for you! Wouldn't be that bad if it were not for one pupil who submitted a paragraph on the life of Darth Vader... you guessed it, it was marked with a tick and 'well done'!!! - Always nice to know your work was read?
