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

Did you get to the dentist by 'eck?

Anyone heard from Frodo? Hope she's OK

I'd better get on, lots still to do and my tea break has lasted rather a long time

I've got to register with them first, but they are sending me the forms, then it takes a week to get on the sytem. I could have gone to the emergency dentist but that was too scary. Think the problem is also a wisdom tooth that does need removing but it means i'll likely lose the nerve to that part of my face I'm a coward really.
Not seen hide nor hair of frodo. Hope she's ok!
How was your day SOLB?

oh no that's rubbish; lost nerve sounds a bit extreme. Hope it doesn't come to that.

How's Moo doing? Any better?

I've had a pretty good day. I got quite a lot of the fiddly painting done. Had an unexpected but very welcome visitor. Laughed quite a lot and promptly lost the motivation to go and finish painting.

I am just gonna have one more cup of tea .....

I decided his eyes weren't getting better on their own so cashed in the script for eye drops. The nurse said to give it 48 hours which I did. His nose is still bright green but he seems happier.
What time is your guest arriving tomorrow?
26/04/2012 at 20:49
So glad he's happier even if having a green nosed child is still a little disconcerting

I'm going to pick my guest up from the airport on Saturday morning so I have tomorrow to prepare too (which is lucky cos I've turned the house upside down today looking for paintbrushes and masking tape)

I'm really tired again. I seem to have all the stamina of an 80 year old comatose sloth *Yawn*

Mine, mine, mine, MINEEEE

To be fair, if I had to buy an oven I'd possibly choose that one.

SOLB, it's gorgeous!

 i do know that running is an excellant control for mentall illness

its not a cure, i dont beleive there is a cure for it

 my problems started after complications during my wife giving birth to our  Phillip, it left my wife ill and Phil severely starved of oxygen and it changed my whole life from that day

if it were not for my running continueing, as ive always been a runner - i dont know were id be

I have to buy cookery books now!

Glad you're still alive Ben-o, how's it going?
26/04/2012 at 23:10
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
26/04/2012 at 23:14

i'll talk tomorrow, i'm tired now

bless all of u


26/04/2012 at 23:22
See you tomorrow Mick, sending some caring positive vibes your way x
26/04/2012 at 23:22
By 'eck that's the best recommendation ever! I am looking it up on Amazon as we speak
26/04/2012 at 23:29

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.

26/04/2012 at 23:38
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!

26/04/2012 at 23:50

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!
