How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Kept 2 pairs
CM - glad all ok, scary. Hope J's arm is ok.
Camlo - well done on the running group, boo to the toenail loss!
Sonya - had plenty of those days, when they're tired as well punishments just don't seem to work either!
Wine and X Factor and some long overdue nametape sewing. My I know how to live
Boo to the spewers, hope they are all better now.
Wish I could have a quiet weekend sometime. Been mad here. Athletics comp all morning yesterday followed by gymnastics and football (Dylan just found out he has been selected for development team which is great but means extra training on a Sat and he will have to give up gymnastics now). Today Em and Dylan have been swimming in a gala and Sophie has been at a netball tournament. Still only one car so its a bit of a logistical headache, but we got it all done!
Had a brilliant night out last night for a friends 50th. What a laugh, my cheeks and stomach are still sore from laughing. Head a bit sore too right enough and really looking tired after 3am to bed and up at 7.
Right better go and get tea, back later for a proper catch up. Was it this weekend that MM was racing?
Vixo, hope the vomming in your house stops soon.
TT/Sonya, Aidan did a poo on the potty last week, was very proud but i don't think he's keen on going for potty training and after all the wee accidents when we did try I am definitely not ready.
TT not sure about pen on cream leather, rather annoying!
Caro - hope you manage to relax, glad you got a night out!
I did my 3 mile run on Saturday, ache all over today, still on antibiotics but its only my sinus/ear that is a problem, the ear still feels all weird, hope I don't have to go back. Anyway, was good to get out in the sun!
I am finding the monday to friday school run a bit manic at the moment, juggling everything to get out the door etc and not forget anything. Martha and Aidan also had birthday parties to go to yesterday and today, however I did the one yesterday and hubby did the one today so I did get a bit of peace and quiet!
Boo to the vomits Vixo, hope you continue to steer clear and the rest of them perk up soon.
Wow to speedy Sonya, intrepid RF and Camlo with her hardcore bootcamp weekend. What a fab bunch ... and let us not forget hardcore Lotte who stays out drinking to all hours and pulls off speedy runs at all hours of the day!! Managing all that on one car - well the mind boggles ... any chance of getting the van back soon??
Caro - 'and breathe' ... hope you are asleep now and the list is forgotten for time being.
Kinsey - can remember when school run first hit us - took me a while to get it all sorted, and that was just with S to drag along too, let alone another one. Glad hubby was back to give a hand anyway. Sinus infections are the pits
CM - definitely not a party night but I have evenings aplenty like that.
TT - that sounds a grim day. Have had furniture and wall writing from my darling daughter in past. My son decided, after scrapping with his sister the other night about who sits where at the table, that he'd write on the table covering with biro - 'Joshua sit's here' ... not impressed!!! Hubby fell asleep the other week with wine glass in his hand (not unusual but I was away on course and not there to retrieve glass from his hand) so he threw it all over the wall and carpet ... someone has some painting to do!!
Pretty busy here.Orienteering in the morning along with my friend. Between us we had 5 kids, 4 competing and the youngest is 2 so she was bundled in the 3-wheeler with dog in tow while we coached/herded my S and her 4-year-old round, while my J and her eldest went and did course on their own (helped each other a bit I think) but no adult intervention, no getting lost and it was a hard course so two proud mummies!! Hubby biked in afternoon.
Nice evening at pub, home by 9.45 but good to get out although nothing especially productive on plans for the future.
Nice speedy 10-miler in the forest today - 1.22 which I was delighted with although it did feel like hard work with a stitch half way round and nice brisk breeze blowing but gorgeous blue-sky-sunshine day
Hi all, hope eveyone is good, been ages since I've posted but I have been trying to keep up from time to time but struggling to do everything these days. Also been a bit down about work / life balance still - won't bore you all with the details though, suffice to say I'm going to turn 40 in just over 6 months and feels like this is a turning point as far as work is concerned. I checked the govermnent website this week and I still have another 27 years until I can draw my state pension and there's no way I want to keep doing what I'm doing now for another 27 years so something needs to change. Husband and kids are wonderful though so I'm managing to keep my chin up best I can ...
Anyway, am sure I remember reading though that TTid has another blue one in the oven - speaking from experience as one who has 3 pink ones I think it's so much easier to have more than one of the same type, actually maybe easier is the wrong word, I think cheaper is what I mean .
Sounds like you ladies have been continuing to put me to shame with your dedication and speedy running. Sonya, seem to remember seeing you've done another half, well done you, I haven't raced at all properly since the Royal Parks half we both did in 2010 (park run excluded). One of the mum's from school is trying to persuade me to do the Brighton half with her next year but my leg still isn't right since I slipped down the stairs 6 months ago so my mileage still pretty meagre right now and I've gone through some pretty low patches recently where I've not managed to run at all some weeks. Getting back on track this week though with 4 miles Sat and 5 today .
Had to laugh at your writing on wall experiences, I cleaned and dusted hubbies bed-side table tonight for the first time in I don't know how long, to find that somebody had drawn a stick man with a smiley face in biro on the top of the table!!! Must have happened months ago so can't be sure who did it (although I have my suspicions) ..
Caro - don't know if you've ever been http://www.visitleevalley.org.uk/en/content/cms/nature/gardens-heritage/myddelton-house-gardens/before but it's not too far from us and we spent a nice couple of hours there this afternoon, really lovely gardens and nice cake too .
Was it hubby Karen?! Hope you get everything sorted soon. Maybe the Brighton half would give you something to focus on running wise?
Boo to the pen everywhere. We have been lucky so far. Leila hasnt drawn on anything...cue major graffitti episode!! You could try a little white spirit TT. Maybe use a little on a damp cloth first and see how it goes on the leather?
Some great running going on, Sonya, CC...sounds like a nice run through the forest.
Yay to the boy TT!! We had our 20 week scan last week and all looks normal so it is a big relief after everything. We decided not to find out and have a surprise. Whatever sex it is, sure to say when it comes out Leila will say "oh, but I wanted *whatever it isn't!!*"
We had a nice weekend, we had to go to the Gower as hubby left his golf clubs down there, so had a nice sunny day on the beach on Saturday digging castles and rockpooling and I had a nice run along Rhossilli in the morning. Good for the soul!
Raining here today, so not sure what to do before taking madam to school this pm...should probably start with getting dressed!
Cameron just swallowed a geomag ball. He's given himself a right fright (good) but should I be worried or just let nature take its course. I suppose the only thing that worrys me is that it is magnetic, its about the size of a small marble.
Hmmm Lotte. I would get him to docs as magnetic not good???
Quick post as not read back yet.
No racing for me Lotte, two weeks to go till Cardiff half. Big family wedding on Sat which was fantastic. Far too much red medicine and late night dancing away in silly high heels. Hence am now rather snotty and hoping it doesn't develop too much.
Boo CM. You need red medicine back in your life me thinks!!!
Catch up more later...
Lotte - just found this on swallowing magnets, only gave it a quick look but seems to suggest that danger is if more than one magnet swallowed. As MM says, would get it checked out though.
CM - off to bed for you and your germs, hope this cold passes quickly.
Anj - seems I've been away so long I totally missed news of your new little one on the way. Congrats! Glad the scan went well .
Right, off to pilates for me and I'm going to be late ...
hmmm Lotte, tough one that - we have some of those randomly strewn around the house! Can see that one is better than two, ideally a trip to the drs otherwise a whole lot of fibre!!?
Big family wedding sounds fun - esp the dancing in high heels and red wine
Stew sounds nice Caro.
Shattered here today and only Monday, nearly fell asleep on sofa while sitting with S trying to keep her awake long enough for me to retrieve J from Cubs - finishes at 8.15 so have only just got S into bed which is NOT ideal. Now to get the bigger one in and I think I'll not be far behind ...
