I have to buy cookery books now!

Glad you're still alive Ben-o, how's it going?

That's very powerful Mick (made me cry), I don't think we have a cure yet but I agree there's something exceptionally powerful about running, even above other sport.
I sometimes wish I could explain it better to people that are caught in a cycle of feeling sad and devoid of energy - I don't know how to explain why it's worth hurling yourself out of the door when it's the last thing you feel like doing. To be fair I have to ask my friends to remind me of that sometimes too.
How are doing Mick?

By 'eck it is beautiful isn't it ... it was described as cooker porn on another thread when I was deliberating. I thought it was a funny joke at the time but I don't wanna admit how many times I've loaded that picture up since I ordered it

SOLB, buy hairy bikers mother knows best. I would offer to lend you my copy but a) it's heavy to post
b) I would miss it too much

Proper food, easy to follow, lots of different things and super tasty

Mick, running is my sanity too

See you tomorrow Mick, sending some caring positive vibes your way x

By 'eck that's the best recommendation ever! I am looking it up on Amazon as we speak

Like SOLB said, that's powerful Mick and very honest. I haven't got the brain power right now for a decent reply, basically what SOLB. When life gives you shit, go running.

I've got about 8 or 9 hours to get everything done and I'm reading some of my work and thinking that I don't understand it. And I just don't know if I can think properly to fix it, I'm just too tired but that won't change.

Time for more pepsi and a cookie, that'll make everything better.

Hope the Pepsi and cookie work Ben-o. If you need someone to proof read to look for typos and wobbly grammar I'll volunteer, though I can guarantee I'll have absolutely no idea what it means.

Could you get away with an hour to cat nap then get up again or would you find it too hard to wake up again? One last push and it'll all be over; imagine how amazing it'll be when you don't have to worry about it anymore

I am adopting 'when life gives you shit go running' I get my test results on either Monday or Wednesday so will have no excuses not to go outside and be happier!

Thanks SOLB. I've had people proof-read but I still don't think it makes sense. I need to focus on passing and not perfection.

I think it's best I power through, I'm not a napper. When I sleep, I'm out. Well, the stress doesn't completely end till June and depending on marks it might carry on for a while longer. Joy.

I think it's my version of when life gives you lemons, make lemonade (which makes no sense!).

26/04/2012 at 23:56
Sounds like a plan ben-o, hope you get to bed at some point.
I tried lemonade it doesn't work!

DON'T PANIC! *Panics* Damn you sleep deprivation!
27/04/2012 at 11:21
(((Ben-o))) I thought a hug might stop you flapping!
27/04/2012 at 13:13
SOLB, that is the most gorgeous cooker I have ever seen. Ever. Proper jealous.
27/04/2012 at 15:13

Thanks SOLB. It's done and hand-in now. What time is the virtual party? What shall I wear? Nothing too nice because you guys are going draw on me and stuff when I fall asleep.

Are you going to bake anything for the party SOLB?

27/04/2012 at 17:00

I'm back.

Haven't you all been busy?

27/04/2012 at 21:01
You can come over to bake celebratory cakes with me mimaduck
*hands Ben-o a glass of champagne and mimaduck and Big D marker pens*

(Actually pretty cooker isn't here yet - it'll be the middle of next week)

really thrilled it's done Ben-o, how do you feel? (other than exhausted)
27/04/2012 at 21:46

You have to wait for the cooker? That's so unfair!

Honestly, I don't feel very much. It was so tiring and stressful and hectic getting it all done, that when I handed it in there was no fanfare or even many people around to congratulate me. I don't think it's sunk in yet, perhaps it will do over the weekend when I find myself with no work to do.

What are people up to this weekend?
