I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Porridge for me. Then out for a run.
No run for me this morining but I've got my pom poms out for the VRC. Going away shortly for a restful break to help Mr Soup's recovery, provided the roads are clear in Devon.
Hope Mr Soupy's doing OK. Must get that porridge. I'm stalling here - as usual.
mmm - I've had poached eggs layed this morning. Still got yesterday's eggs here if anyone wants a change from porridge.
Have a good run LR - stop stalling.
I'm doing it. I'm doing it. No need to nag. Actually there is a need to nag - but the porridge is nearly ready.
By 'eck, yes it counts towards the total, I have done my walk to the shops a mile each way.
Not having a good day, sooo much to do, keep getting distracted and start on another little chore, not got the housework basics all done yet and found that I have no more anti static duster things that grab the dust. Waiting for my hot drink to cool down enough to drink, then hopefully I will feel revived to carry on.
That means I can count my two walking to work days - which were effectively in lieu of running anyway.
Had my run - I stopped a bit short of the intended distance having done just over 3 miles. My legs were aching - just nervous tension - and carrying on longer would only have made it worse. I kept going non stop though so a run from which I can take plenty of satisfaction for my efforts if not pleasure at the time I was doing it. Plenty of nice fresh snow to run on though. I even forfeited my cafe treat to get home and get on with jobs at home to give me the best possible chance of getting out again tomorrow.
My friends who have chickens are reporting that they're not liking this weather at all.
Go CJ - get those jobs done.
By 'eck - you certainly shouldn't feel bad about not achieving much. You've been under a lot of stress lately and that really takes it out you.
Just popping back in to say, bathroom clean apart from the floor. So 1 job done. Put some food out for the birds (not on to do list) and so far only seen a pair of magpies come down and take a look at the stuff (proper bird suet pellets).Will go and do the hoovering and hope I don't get any more distractions.
LR glad you had a good run, I know what you mean about not enjoying them until its over, plus it was non stop for 3 miles.
oh poo my kettle has finally given up the ghost.
Would have to do it in the freezing cold
Oh. that's bad timing, Bear.
And apologies to by 'eck who says she's feeling abandoned then nobody responds for over 2 hours.
Ooh, sounds nice. The run just about finished me off but I've managed to tidy up a bit.
The roads were clear this morning to I decided to go off for a swim, or three.
100m done in the Ouse at 2.6 degrees200m done in the Cam at 3.8 degrees100m done in the Nene at 2.8 degrees
Feeling really chuffed with myself for that. It was a challenge mentally to get in the first time, and the other two were even harder
Sorry by 'eck, cleaned the kitchen floor now. Perfectly acceptable to be shattered and glad to hear moo is having apple and banana crumble.
LR I just have one last little job to do in the kitchen then I am calling it a day. Oh and I must check on the slow cooker its been on all day, the smell keeps making me hungry.
XFR bear, pants to the kettle failure, saucepans of hot water are not so easy to use.
Feeling more positive now, think I know what caused the horrible emotions earlier on today. Once I can see a reason for something it becomes easier to deal with.
Oh who's authority? And is their authority creditable? I have a suspicion who might have said that.
