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

(((Ben-o))) I thought a hug might stop you flapping!

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)

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?

Hey peeps, how are we?
Having to wait for a shiny noo toy is horrible. How will you pass the time?
This weekend I run my first marathon.

I have a friend coming to stay, I'm picking her up from the airport early in the morning then we're gonna drink tea and play Monopoly (her suggestion) we're off to London to meet a load of other crazy people on Sunday

I'm really nervous I don't know how I'll cope with having her in the house, or going to London ... to be honest I'll be really relieved when it's all over.

(((Ben-o))) so thrilled for you, hope it sinks in over the weekend

Ooo by eck that's fab, so excited for you ... you've kept the taper madness quiet

How are you feeling darling?

As you can see from the first few pages of this thread I was absolutely petrified before mine but it was really easy once I got to the start line. I grinned so much some spectators who moved around the course knew me as 'smiley girl'

Hope it goes well By 'eck

*scribbles rude words on Ben-o's head, scoffs cake, quaffs fizz and falls asleep* 

Lovely to see you today SOLB, hope you could see how handsome J is and where the children get their gorgeousness from

Have a fab time on Sunday and hope its not too stressful xx

I'm hoping to be so smiley all the way round. I still can't believe i'll be doing it. Bimbling around town this morning was really strange. 3 miles feels like cheating. Think I'm more likely to be drowned rat girl looking at the forecast

*wakes beebs up for a quick drunken snog and sniggers at the rude word*

J is indeed v handsome, between the two of you I can see how you made beautiful babies ... but I still have to say those kids are just stunning - surely they aren't real. I think you've photoshopped them!!

By 'eck I'm sure you will be that smiley, it's so weird the actual race isn't as hard as you imagine. All those horrible training runs when you didn't wanna go are sooooo much harder than the actual marathon. Can't wait to hear how it goes

I genuinely am quite excited we have a marathon in the air. Beebs and I were just saying today how it's easy to forget what an amazing achievement it is when you're hanging around the forums cos it seems like everyone else throws one out before breakfast but in the big bad world it's incredible. Most people can't even imagine doing one, you'll be a hero!!

Its true about maras and its what we said. 

27/04/2012 at 23:37

Hey! You wrote what?! That's filthy! At least your spelling's good!

Yeah, I totally agree. The actual race itself is quite enjoyable because you're doing what you've trained for so long to do. It is really tough (particularly miles 18-24 I found) but just absorb the support of the crowd and use it to keep going. Good luck By Eck, I'm sure you'll do brilliantly!

I hope this weekend goes well for you SOLB. I find it really stressful having visitors, I always feel really pressurised. It's easy to caught up in worrying (and worrying about worrying), sometimes I find it helpful just to remind myself that everything will be ok. And it will SOLB, I'm sure you'll have a fab weekend!

Ben-o if I wasn't already happily married with 4 children and a grandgirl on the way I might ask yo to marry me

Do you like Green Day and baked potatoes? 

27/04/2012 at 23:47
BTW as I told SOLB my name is beebs and  I don't run
27/04/2012 at 23:52
Hey, no pinching my Ben-o ... oh I mean ha ha ha excellent flirting beebs !
