Mental illness and running

I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Stitches removed from my knee (done), shopping (done), book teaching, pack for tomorrow

 

How are you today by eck?

Erm, it's a mixed day. Not got stacks of energy so going to rest when moo does. Mr by eck accidentally scraped against the neighbours car last night so I've been worrying about it more than I should.
What are you doing tomorrow bear?

I'm helping tow friends out who are racing around the underground in London for Children in Need.  My job is to basically buy them coffee and sandwiches as they don't have time to stop, plus carry bags if they're doing any running (you often run between the tube lines to save time doubling back).

 

I did it last year and it's a great fun day out - I'd be doing it again if my knee was okay

Aww poor by eck, it's really easy to worry about stuff like that especially if there's nothing you can do about it. Hope the neighbour is understanding, we do all make mistakes. 

Hope you and Moo get some rest. 

Glad the stitches are out Bear.

I really need to go shopping, I've needed to go since about this time last week but have been putting it off but it's mucking up my OCD work now so I'll need to get some food in. 

Ooo bear that's brilliant, I'm glad you get to still be part of it this year - I think you are the prettiest gopher (go-for) I've ever seen

Sounds fab bear. What do they have to do? I used to spend lots of time on the underground

Basically just visit all 270 stations - but it does take quite a while, they'll likely take over seventeen hours which is why they need refreshments.

 

I only had two stitches, northing like SOLBtitchysis's knees, I've seen the piccies!

Oh bum, I looked the other day at the anatomy teaching and it wasn't very booked up.  Just looked again to book it and there's no spaces.  That does seem weird that it would fill up suddenly.

 

I can check for cancellations but it's a long shot.  A real shame as it would help build my confidence

Oooooo, can you give a special salute at Woodford Green station ( central line) for me?
I remember people doing this a couple of years ago. It takes a huge amount of planning. I was tempted to do it myself as I do actually like the underground
15/11/2012 at 13:52
Solb, I use a mixture of shopping locally, doing the big stuff online and making Mr by eck help with the supermarket.
I don't mind doing it really but it is hard work with moo and no car...

I probably won't be there tbh, I tend to skip the extremities as a supporter.

Do you live in London bear?
15/11/2012 at 14:39

Yes I do

15/11/2012 at 14:44
I used to until we decided it was costing too much. I do miss it sometimes
15/11/2012 at 14:46

Whereabouts are you now?

15/11/2012 at 15:18

Ooooh not far away then, and in SOLB's general direction I think

15/11/2012 at 16:33
Yes, kind of. She is further west

If we were to have a thread meet up what would we do? Clean?
15/11/2012 at 17:08
