Sorry to hear about your bad news Jones.

things like that put all our minor irritations into life so I won't moan about mine!

cardiff office is now e open so less travelling now. 

sun is shining and it's the weekend!

off to France a week today.

hope all are well.

Morning Folks !

Another day eh ? At least no rain.

Daisy was quite happy but initially Tom thought he'd done really badly. He took three pens in with him, all of which ran out. Then the invigilator gave him a pen which also ran out. By this time he was flustered and messed up two questions. When he first came out he said he'd "failed". When he'd eaten and calmed down, he worked out that of the nine questions on the paper, he'd done seven perfectly and would get marks for workings on the other two. He now thinks he might be OK. Also, it turns out that in his head, 'fail' means 'get less than an A'. As someone who has genuinely falied more than my share of maths exams, I think he should cheer up and be happy with a B.

I'm off to a Welsh revision day today. Humph, hope it's not a waste of a beautiful day...

On that score Tracey it would appear I have 'failed' a good few exams in my time then Good Tom has strong expectations.

Turned out nice in the end then despite all the exams going on, I was putting posts in and fencing around fruit trees yesterday and managed to catch the post basher (25Kg steel tube with handles) on the rear edge of the post causing it to tilt and clonk me on the head! I thought the worst of it was having bitten my tongue until I felt the blood trickle down my face. Figured I best get cleaned up before I passed out (I am an utter wouse with my own blood!) - was nothing in the end, just a graze and a headache

Boff Jnr is doing OK with his right arm in a sling - teenage boys heal quickly which is just as well. He can write OK-ish so with the extra time he is getting through his exams.

Good for you the Cardiff Office is open Kev - was that a typo, or is it a virtual office?

Afternoon all and thanks for the kind words everyone  its all a bit less raw now at least and running is really helping, just back from a very hilly 15 miles around Gower  which was about two miles too long for me but still lovely in the sunshine, 18 miles next week

Evening all

Jones - running helps as you say. 

Tracey - I am sure Tom will have done very well.  Hope your day of Welsh was successful too.  Well done Daisy.

Boffin - be careful!!  Accidents happen but that sounds nasty.  Good news that Boffin Jnr is managing with his injury.

Lovely day today.  Make hay whilst the sun shines.  Haven't stopped!

the weather looks set to be good this week, let's hope it lasts!

I went bickeling (bimbling on a bike) with my mad friend. We went early along the seafront and had a coffee at the 360, it was such a relaxing time. Lovely sunshine, fab views, we need more of it!

3 working days left for me

off for a swim in the taff

Ew! I am off to WNPS soon and am not happy as they had a gala on the weekend which means they will have dropped the temperature to 29 degrees. You make me feel like a real whimp Seren!

I also had a nice ride yesterday - we went up something called Mynydd Eppynt - a bugger of a climb with a plateau on top. It's all owned by the military, there are firing ranges up there and a puropse built village for them to practice urban warfare. The views are amazing and it's very unspoilt and quiet.

Sue - is that last three days ever?

20/05/2013 at 11:02


Cycling uphill on a firing range - now that is what I call motivation!

Yes Tracey, last 3 days in this job 

I've been where you describe and have slept in that village. Tramping around the area doing Krypton factor type things getting wet, crawling through tunnels and abseiling down the side of buildings. All in the name of fun

Good luck Sue.  Life has more adventures in store for you I am sure.  Bike rides sound like a  laugh.

I went swimming before work today and it was rather cold!  So annoying when they shut all weekend. 

Tracey - hope Tom and Daisy have recovered from their exams.  I am no good cycling on the flat, never mind uphill.  I love running uphill


21/05/2013 at 08:08

I went swimming too Clare. It's dreadfully cold after a gala! OK when you get going though.

21/05/2013 at 12:07


Busy old time.

Good to know you all are enjoying your swimming - must be nice early in the morning Nutty, good way to start the day

You are finding yet more ways to keep going Tracey - cycle quickly to avoid the tanks and keep swimming before you freeze!

You could always cycle down hill Nutty, then run back uphill with your bike?


21/05/2013 at 13:49

"Yes Tracey, last 3 days in this job" - Excellent stuff Sue, you will never look back whatever you think ! Onwards and Upwards !

Good thinking Boffin.  I often go for a bike ride across the front in the mornings.  Freewheel down and push the bike up the hill.  Its usually 6 am so a bit early to go running up hill with a bike in tow!!

Went for another early morning swim today.   Tis a great way to start the day

2 days left now Sue..... Good luck.

Push the bike up the hill? Seriously? How can you run up Snowdon but not cycle up Mayals? It's only a twmp!
