How do you get going again after pregnancy?
PS it's next Saturday night, 7pm, thought I'd offer them to the people who I know would be most interested first!
Dying to know how you got on camlo!!!
Oh and did you manage to see the cheetahs CM? I hope so!!!
Well tomorrow I am off for my first overnight trip away!! Matilda has a stinking cold and so is miserable and totally out of sorts (she was incredibly hard work today so Daddy will have his hands full tomorrow). She fell asleep while I was giving her a cuddle before bed and I must admit to having a wee cry. I am looking forward to going but am going to miss her like mad - I will get home after she has gone to bed on Tuesday (
Annoyingly I think I also have her cold as I have a sore throat brewing, sigh!!
Oh Hoggle, don't worry, in a couple of years time you will be relishing time away!! I am probably the worst Mum in the world, I am going to Spain for a week with a couple of friends leaving her with Daddy and Grandparents! I can't wait for a week of lie ins and sunbathing by the pool! Of course I will miss her, but I can't wait to read some good books in peace!
Cake making today in preparation for L's party tomorrow. Looks like the weather will be cooperating, looks nice and sunny at the moment. We have 12 children coming to the party at the farm, then grandparents etc coming over in the evening. I feel I owe her a proper birthday after a quiet affair in Australia last year.
About to go out for a run, I have said goodbye to sub 8.30 minute miles now. I wonder how long it will be before 9 minute miles become a distant memory. Don't remember slowing this much last time.
Ooh yes... and how did you get on Camlo???!!!
Wow well done Camlo! that's fantastic running! And well done JT! Good weekend's work for you both!
Feeling a bit more human today. Lordy yesterday was grim. Picked up by the time I went to get my hair done but ugh. Had my folks and my sister and family round for nibbles and birthday cake today. Was a lovely day so we just chilled in the back garden.
Fitted in a wee 6.4 miler this morning. Felt almost good.
Hoggle enjoy your night away. Anj that's still great going - I came in at 8.44 av today which means I am getting better. Hip flexor twinging this afternoon but that's all. Am presently trying to access the Great Scottish Run results as got a lot of friends running it. Confession that I'm checking up on them so that if they've just blitzed it I can practice my "I'm so happy for you" face and not give them my "how dare you do that well" face. Jealous, moi?
Do any of you ladies own a Food Processor? Do you use it? what for? I've got a blender but pondering a food processor. Mainly cos I keep looking up recipes which say whiz it in the food processor and I don't have one! Not sure why I gave it capitals at the start there?!
Woo hoo well done Camlo! Sounds amazing you are a star!
And well done too JT.
CM - poor J, hope you are all ok.
Happty Birthday to Leila. Hope all goes to plan.
Lol EF, I was trying to cyber stalk a friend on the results too but the site is ona go slow.
Had a long day, spent freezing my butt off time keeping at the athletics track for junior competition with a hellish hangover. Went out with the girls yesterday, we started drinking at my friends at 3pm and I got home at 2.30 this morning. We were ina few pubs in town and had a lovely meal, it was some night. Had a nightcap at a friends house and then her hubby drove everyone home!
Emily and Reece were competing today and both did very well, Reece was first in his race and Em was a tight second in hers, they also did a throw and a jump but haven't seen the results yet. Sophie and Dylan are still away on their swimming trip, they are back tomorrow morning. Sophie got 4 PBs and Dylan won 2 golds and a silver. He was first in his fly too but only touched the wall with one hand so was DQ'd. Probably a good thing, he is going to be big headed enough when he gets home!
Wow Camlo - well done! Great report too, shame about the banana mush though!
JT - congratulations!
Glad to see some of us have a social life too!
EF - I don't have a food processor, I'm a bit bemused by most kitchen equipment and normally find a way of getting around it when recipes go on about food processors with whatever I do have!
Woohoo Camlo! Amazing, well done, and fab race report
EF - I borrowed my Mums Kenwood mixer/food processor today to make 36 cup cakes and butter icing and Leilas birthday cake and probably would still be making them now if I hadn't! I don't know how much baking you do, but I def want one...it has a chopper/blender attachment too. Good for soups, chopping erm...things?
Good one JT. Bet you're pleased!
Sad news today. One of my Mum's good friends whom we lived across the road from for years, and also childminded me, my sister and subsequent nieces and nephews... her Grandson hung himself in her house last night. She found him this morning after going in his room to wake him up (he always lived with her) He was only 20 and grew up over the road from us. I just cannot comrehend it. Just awful, the poor, poor family. He has 2 sisters a few years younger than me. So sad.
Just a quickie to reassure you all that on our night away we had to have a twin bedded room where the beds were nailed to the floor, so short of us putting the mattresses on the floor there was no chance of sleeping even vaguely near each other! Plus I drank way too much and pretty much passed out when we got in !
