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

Night all

The new tablets are working. I've done really well today after docs at 8.50 I've been out from 13.00-23.00 including coffee in town and a reasonably relaxed brief conversation with a stranger. Have been to mummySOLBs work and collected her forgotten phone from her boss which involved talking on the intercom (which freaks me out) and then took poorly MummySolb flowers. I emailed some social clubs in the area - inspired by Bear's success. So I should feel really proud, but I don't. I feel crushed by burning shame like I've done something terribly wrong
On the plus side I got some lovely spotty hugs
I need to try to wind down and sleep but feel suffocated by shame. Maybe I've just pushed too hard today

Morning all.

SOLB - really well done on your efforts yesterday.  I think maybe you have got to watch how much you take on in one go as it's still early days.  Hope you managed to settle down OK after your last post.  Spotty hugs sound like they're the best - though mught need explaining to our newcomers.

Morning all

Ahhh indeed! Spotty hugs are enormous cuddles from my parents 18month old Dalmatian I'll find a picture of him cos he's beautiful though he has to have an op tomorrow on a poorly paw

Hope everyone has a positive day

Huge hugs to spotty dog.
solb, thanks for your concern yesterday. Still battling the tinnitus but the dizziness is almost gone. I'm celebrating by sorting out a load of washing.
Moo is at the hospital today - dietician. It'll either be a or a

Hi guys,  that is amazing progress Solb.  Well done, but don't go doing too much in one go *waggles finger*

I've got the afternoon off because I had someone coming to look at the house.  He arrived within 10 min of me getting home so I now have the whole afternoon free.  I'm off for a long swim later.  I had a 4k swim scheduled in but after talking to my coach I'm going to swap it for the 7k swim instead

I have no idea why, but today I am feeling super bouncy.

*Leaves excess energy next to the Earl Grey, Peppermint and normal tea*

Any hugs going?
09/01/2013 at 13:50

Lots of hugs going by 'eck  ((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))

There might be a few left over for others if by 'eck doesn't want them

09/01/2013 at 13:52
I will share hugs and pass them on
I have lovely tea. It was a Christmas present all the way from Paris. It smells and looks wonderful and tastes fabulous. There are even pink and purple petals in it!

Caz you really are super. Bouncy days are so good aren't they? Thanks for the earl grey. Does by 'eck need a choccy hob nob too?
09/01/2013 at 14:47

  I can't eat choccy hob nobs

09/01/2013 at 17:00

Caz can you eat the Prewetts choccy biscuits, they are very yummy, but you don't get many in a packet. My swimming is nowhere near the distances you do. I am doing Winterswim and the next round is 800m or 1500m so will have to find time to do it.

(By 'eck) and (()) for sharing around.

09/01/2013 at 17:04

I don't think I've heard of them CJ.  I'm not a big biscuit person, but hob nobs tend to have the same effect on me as bread.  Not all biscuits are as bad as that.

But I guess that if I'm giving up gluten then I need to find alternative comfort foods to pizza and dough balls.

There are GF pizzas Caz.

Just given myself a kick to go out for a run. Back late.

Football tonight - then chicken casserole. Oh yes

Supercaz, Mrs crimble's make rather lovely GF macaroons
09/01/2013 at 20:16

I agree by 'eck Mrs Crimbles macaroons are good and don't look or taste GF.

I ran/walked 2.4 miles. Pleased with the effort.

Evening lovelies. 

Hope its good news from the dietician by eck.

I've done a lunch time run for half an hour today.  It was lovely to go into work this morning without that sinking anxiety feeling. I found myself singing I can see clearly now the rain has gone. 

Caz - can I join you for a bounce please?

Macaroons - ooooo lovely. GF or non GF would all be fine in the soup cave.

Little moo has put on 100g in the last 6 months. That's not enough so he is now not allowed any cow's milk protein (on top of all his other exclusions).so we now have new milk (which requires much acting from to persuade him to even taste it), and a whole load of cooking to do. It's a 6 week trial. I need hugs and chocolate

((((((by 'eck))))))

Green and Blacks any good? Milk or plain?
