Morning

Pooff! that's where Nutty!

All sheep and cattle vaccinated etc many thanks to Boff Jnr - almost as energetic as a collie and pretty quick too Our rams are very friendly - impossible to get a tractor and trailer into their field without them surrounding the wheels - so Boff Jnr had to run off down the field with the sheep chasing after him!

I have no experience training a sheep dog Sue, only what I have read... Collies do seem to have an instinctive desire to round things up from what I have heard. Only collies I have any experience of where highly strung intelligent dogs needing lots of exercise who learn cute tricks very quickly.

Seems the only way to play board games Tracey... with copious amounts of alcohol! Glad you all still have your heads attached; wouldn't want to lose them!

Too right Boffin.  Boff Jnr deserves extra helpings of pie and cake after all that exertion!!

My only experience of sheep dogs is the same as you Boffin. 

At least the sun was out today

Morning

I think the exertion has tired him out Nutty - we don't see him until midday!!!

I cut the domestic grass yesterday - hate it when it gets long; hate it even more when the pull cord comes away (petrol mower) Last time that happened it ended up with me having to replace the recoil spring as well, so wasn't too pleased to end up with a pull cord in my hand not attached to the mower. Had a cup of tea and a grump then pulled the mower apart (amazing how much you have to dismantle just to get at the recoil housing!), wound back the recoil and re-fitted the pull cord - sorted dim problem!

Still in shock! Expected loads of hassle and didn't get any in the end... nice to be pleasantly surprised occasionally

Hello Swansea people, hope you are all well.

I used to be on the thread years ago, I'm still running but was allowed away from the computer(!!) when I finished my PhD.  I've been back on here recently though as I have finally entered a marathon (Chester on October 6th) so I'm training harder now.

Consequently I have discovered Cardiff Met Uni's fab sports massage clinic so wanted to share - if you pay £20 for a session with a qualified practicioner you get a free session with a supervised trainee as well.  Also the wet spa in the LC in Swansea is £5.40 for an hour (jacuzzi/sauna/steam room/aromatherapy room/hot beds/monsoon showers), the hot beds are very good when you're aching!

Boffin - well done.  Patience is a virtue.

IQ - welcome back.  Thanks for the tips and good luck marathon training.

Morning all! Swindon today, Cardiff tomorrow, Friday then off to Aberystwyth for 9 nights for a bit of R&R!

Morning all

Sounds lovely Kev, enjoy.

Hiya Ice Queen, welcome back and congratulations on entering a marathon. I've heard that Chester is lovely. The LC2 thing sounds lovely, but no way am I training for a marathon before I can justify indulging myself!

We are home and happy. I spent a year in Paris thirty years ago before I went to university, but (cliche alert) I had forgotten how gorgeous it is. The kids were delighted with it, and we were delighted with it AND them. Only one problem - I have eaten and drunk far too much good food and wine, now need to heave myself into the pool and crow bar my feet into my trainers. Groan - this is going to hurt!

Morning

Good luck with the marathon training Ice Queen and well done submitting your thesis 

I could do with more of that patience stuff Nutty!

 

Busy busy Kev! I don't remember much about Swindon except that it seemed to me to be a land of roundabouts! Nine nights in Aber sounds good

Good to have you back Tracey, sounds like you had a brilliant time in Paris - can hardly blame you for eating and drinking good food and wine!

21/08/2013 at 19:25

Glad France was good Tracey.

Yes, looking forward to Aber now!

Tracey - good to hear you all enjoyed.  I went to Paris once with my school and that was also  about 30 years ago.  Would like to go back one day.  Don't worry about eating and drinking.  Sampling local cuisine is part of the holiday.

RK - back travelling again?  Hope the job is going well.  Break will be good.

Still, pies all rounds on Saturday
