Well done Wabo. 

Sounds like MissB is enjoying her athletics.

I've been a bit busy over the weekend. Saturday Miss LFC's new wardrobe arrived so I tool apart the old one and built the new one. Sunday I finished off her room, mounting the TV on the wall and such, cut the grass and painted the fence in the front garden. Monday I painted and decorated the hall, stairs and landing. Last night, we had speed sessions at the club. If I haven't lost something after all that , I will be very disappointed.

Fingers crossed for you lfc!

Thanks Vixx.

I went to weigh myself last night and the scales just flashed up they need a battery. I've worn them out. 

I've been trying some to the different tea's such as lemon and ginger. They smell nice but never seem to have much flavour. Am I the only one that thinks this? Am I doing it wrong?

Morning: Sunny with blue skie sup here today, so far

lfc: Yeah Miss B is enjoying her athletics.

lfc I always leave the bag in with those sort of teas

10/05/2013 at 18:06

lfc - the only flavoured teas (or any tea for that matter) that I drink are the Teapigs ones.  They aren't cheap and I am a tightwad and get 3 mugs out of each bag - and can still taste good flavour from them.  I have the peppermint, and the marrakesh mint/green tea ones but I have tried others.

Happy Friday everyone

Not much of  a tea drinker, Prefer coffee.

11/05/2013 at 10:24

Me too birkmyre! I usually have the peppermint tea or mint tea when I am coffee'd out!

What are ou up to this weekend?

11/05/2013 at 14:45

Hello all - just popping in for a catch up. Off to help set up for the Chester Half in a bit and am up early tomorrow to marshal.

Enjoy your weekends everyone.

Vixx: I've watched Villa v Chelsea already then watching the  FA Cup Final. Think City by 2 clear goals so going for 3-1. (That's means it'll be 4-3 to Wigan knowing what my predictions are like ! )

11/05/2013 at 16:56

Have fun tomorrow DD! How is everything going?

birkmyre - I am just sitting here watching the build up

I reckon 1-1 in 90 mins.

12/05/2013 at 07:18


Vixx: Yup got that prediction wrong. So much 3-1 City. Well done to Wigan, I thought they were brilliant.

12/05/2013 at 10:49

It was a brilliant game I thought. I really wanted Wigan to win

What are you up to today?

12/05/2013 at 16:47


Good to see all the familiar names are popping up still.

I was amazed last week when I weighed myself (at the end of the day which is always worse) and came up at 9 stone.  I don't understand how I can't have put on a shed load when I've done no running since November, and very little else, and eaten everything I fancy.  Still, it's good.  Just need to tone up the midrift, as always.  First run/race of the year today.  Feels ok, so far . . .

Goes off to to check the batteries . . . . .

Welcome back RLTW

You must have been doing other stuff to burn off the calories

12/05/2013 at 17:19

I could be sleeping very restlessly Vixx

12/05/2013 at 17:40

You never know RLTW

Hi everyone. RLTW glad to see you back in the mix. 

I am great thanks Vixx - really busy at work but enjoying it. Loving having the mornings free.

I had a great time helping out at the half marathon yesterday. It was good to see the event from the other side for once.  It takes such a lot of organisation and the people who run it are amazing. Have a look at the runners world reports - Chester HM and M are definitely two of the best races around.

13/05/2013 at 10:33

I am considering Chester this year

13/05/2013 at 10:40


DD - my sister was at the Chester Half yesterday as part of the St. John's. She said it was a very good day and she would love to take part one day. I can't see it though as she doesn't like exercise. 

Vixx - thanks for the link for the tea. I'm normally a coffee drinker, but I'm looking for alternatives to help with hydration as I have been getting board with the water. I've bought some lemons this weekend so I'm going to chop some up into a jug of water and see if that helps.
