23/02/2006 at 09:40

I haven't had a drink - I went shopping yesterday and stocked up on Pellegrino so all's fine ( and bought some cat food)

I'm shoked to hear you don't care - I'm sure you do really ;-(
23/02/2006 at 10:02
I'm not shoked I'm shocked
23/02/2006 at 10:05
ok yes i would care!! but id be even more shoked if you did drink
23/02/2006 at 10:11
We'll have to come up with a meaning for 'shoked' as it isn't in the dictionary.

Maybe it means - that queasy feeling after eating too many sweets.

Morning!! Nope hadn't been drinkling Laura. Had one glass of wine last night and didn't really enjoy it but I got like that just before I was due to give up smoking .... think its a psychological preparation thing.

Mr FF however, polished off three bottles of wine and was sent to sleep in spare bedroom!!!!! FF not happy at all.

Dropped the four kids off to there four different schools this morning, ran to the gym, did 45 minutes heavy weights and ran back IN THE SNOW!

FF feeling better now.

How are YOU??? :) <big manic smile>

Hi Fat Fyse - Good Morning!

Three bottles on a school night - How are you/him this morning?

ell me he's at least got a head ache or I'll be upset
23/02/2006 at 13:01
Nope, he doesn't get hangovers!!! He gets up at 6 goes to work and comes home at 1830, no problem. I think he's what you call a functioning alcoholic!!

I'm OK, I just think I was getting my hopes up that maybe he was making an effort to cut down.

Started my own blog this morning!
23/02/2006 at 13:20
What does he do? - I hope he's not my dentist or a heart surgeon - Crikey.

I don't/ didn't get hangovers except on very rare occasions but I know I had a fuzzy feeling - a I'm not really her thing going on - probably would of never run if I had suffered too bad.

Striking out with your own thread ehh - just popped to have a look - sorry I can't help much but ill fitting pants makes me rather touchy - Calvins' or Ted Baker 's sorted that though. Not much help

He's a Golf Pro by trade (thus the drinking lifestyle). He's now the manager of a printing company and a bit of a workaholic at that. It's amazing how well he copes really.

With regards to my 'thread' was just testing to see if anyone else had problems with this form of contraception or whether its just me looking for an excuse for being so horrible. Fact is, if I keep sending Mr FF to sleep in spare room, contraception shouldn't be an issue really!

Perhaps you could start a thread on Ill Fitting Pants Causing Mood Swings!

Mr FF is distant when he's drinking, doesn't talk to me or even acknowledge me after the first bottle and gets grouchy if I demand a response. Generally I end up going to bed at 2130 and reading. FF not a happy bunny :( If it wasn't for the kids I'd be gorn!

Running helps!
23/02/2006 at 13:57
Gave up the drink in August 2003, and not looked back since; no better feeling than crossing a marathon finish line. I know what it's like to get drunk, and deal with the hangover - doesn't beat the marathon finish line!!!
23/02/2006 at 14:02
Ill fitting pants and mood swings- I already have the solution.

Sorry things arn't too great at the mo <blokish don't know what to say look on face>

I tried looking for a quote of the day but couldn't find one - wheres bunbury when you need him?

23/02/2006 at 14:12
Like I said JD. Running helps!! I'm fine and cheerful honest. I'm saving my life for my 40's and I can't wait!!! I'm running and watching what I'm eating now to make sure I can still pull when I'm 40 (I've heard its the new 30!). Now, lets get back to some light hearted banter shall we! :)

Welcome Gareth! This is the slightly quirky drinkers/ex-drinkers thread and I agree with your sentiment 100% (Not that I've made the marathon line yet, but I'm up to 13 miles with my training).

Mr FF said he didn't want me to run a marathon....said he thought it wasn't 'healthy'!!! You know that bit on the Lion King when Scar tells simba that whatever he did he mustn't go to the 'Elephant Graveyard'......FF secretly training for FLM next year (if I get in). I love my rebelious nature, makes me feel in control when it looks like I've lost it!

Good luck on the marathon training - well worth doing at least once and if your up to 13 miles in training you'll do it easily for next year.

I followed the RW marathon training diary from the 1st of Jan and it was fine. It does take over (the RW diary not the marathon ) your life slightly as I planned everything around it even taking days off work to do the longer of the runs.

Are you hidding your Runners World under the mattress?

Trainers behind the watertank?

Stealing and lying to support your habit?


23/02/2006 at 14:35
pmsl. I have one pair of trainers that he knows about (I have two other identical pairs hidden so that he doesn't realise how many I have!).

Last night he said, 'let me guess, you're reading another running book?' When I said yes and argued that it was my hobby, he said 'I used to be your hobby!' Yeah right, like when!

I'm not stealing or lying, I'm just being economical with the truth and training when he thinks I'm in bed after a night shift and he's at work. I don't plan on doing a great time with the marathon, I just want to do one, especially now he's said I'm not to.

so neeehhh! What's he gonna do? leave me? bovvvvverrrrrreed!

sh*t think my hormones may be getting out of hand again <runs upstairs and grabs an HRT tablet>.

23/02/2006 at 14:49
<runs down stairs and grabs the dictionary>

Ahh there it is HRT - Haemorrhoid Rate Therepy - still in the dark

*hears the call and appears suddenly from behind a bush*

How about another WH Auden poem?

"You're a long way off from becoming a saint
As long as you suffer from any complaint,
But if you don't, there's no denying
The chances are that you're not trying."

Apologies for my quietness: I was actually about to respond about an hour ago, but was forcibly removed from the place where I was working. It's a long story, but I am NOT in a good mood. Internal politics and bloody irrationality. *explodes*

JD - I'm an archaeologist (ex-pro digger and now student) and am meant to be writing views of the English landscape, which I can do til the cows come home. It's my own project and I can waffle joyously about it for hours. However, I rather stupidly signed up to do a course on archaeological surveying as part of my degree. It's fine in principle, but the last three weeks have involved things that I did every day when I was a field archaeologist, so it feels like a waste of (rather a lot of) time. I rather resent standing in the freezing cold for an hour brandishing a measuring stick in order to practise something I could do with my eyes shut. I'd also like to be able to sit and do what I do best - write - rather than buggering about with pages of surveying data.

*sigh* Sorry guys, not a good day for Bunburies. Can I have one of your jammie dodgers please, JD? I think I need it.

Peace (it's here somewhere, I'm sure),

Bunbury.
