Omg tmi. Gp prescribed antifungals for my toenail. Have been taking them about 2 weeks and have got really bad constipation which isn't like me as I am normally extremely regular!! Anyway got some dulcolax last night as was really uncomfortable all day and had indigestion and felt sick. Bloody hell did they work. on the sodding bog constantly since 2am. Supposed to be driving to reading but daren't - 100 miles in this state?!?? It will be q funny when I have recovered. At the moment it is extraordinarily painful.

Oh no CM! Hope you feel better soon!

03/10/2013 at 08:30

Oh no CM. That's not good. Hope body calms down soon.

Ok I killed the thread with my poo-trollery

Hahaha whoever said 5 days away sounds blissful (cc maybe) couldn't be further from the truth!!! We're in Napier which is beautiful, prime winery country, 20 degrees plus outside, lovely hotel across the road from the beach - sounds amazing right? except I've had to start going for a 6am walk otherwise I dont see any daylight from 7.15am until 10pm - inside a sports centre with no windows!! Bloody busy but such long days.

I'm enjoying it although having to be v careful of my back. Hubby says M keeps asking me when I'm coming home which makes me sad but I'm reminding myself that this is a small price to pay for having a full time job that gives me so much flexibility and afternoons with Matilda.

not really had time to read back - hope everyone is ok

poo trollery hehehe. Hope it has stopped now! Fab running as usual folks and grr to class JT. 

not reading much, not running much (at all), not doing anything really. Should be packing for holiday (Monday grancanaria) but nan really poorly and can't think about anything else.

Oh poor you camlo, sad for all but I hope you manage to get a decent, well deserved break.  We are thinking about gran canaria over Easter-have you been before?  Will quiz you after!

park run in the morning

Boo to Poo!

Oh Camio - hugs to you all (( ))

Yay on park run PB Carovet. EF and I often struggle to keep up with the speedy teens at intervals so well done!

Hope all the pregnant peeps doing OK - Brookie, TBogle and JT?

Managing to read, but just never time to post ... waving to you all.

Quick question for JT - remember your failsafe choc sponge recipe that you once posted on here years ago? You don't have a version of that for just a plain sponge do you? I'm not enough of a baker to know what to substitute the cocoa powder with (if anything at all) just to get a plain sponge!

MR - 2 eggs, 4oz of butter, sugar and self raising flour. Mix together the sugar and butter, add the eggs and mix, then add the flour. For a good size Victoria sponge cake I usually use 3 eggs and 6oz of the others - basically use twice as much of the other ingredients in ounces as you have eggs. Hope that helps!

Camlo - hope you have a good holiday and can get some relaxing and fun time while you're away.

We have had a full house here today - 12 adults and 11 children for lunch (they left at about 6!) - so I'm now going to sit down with a glass of wine before having an early night!!

thanks ladies, gave myself a kick up the bum and went for a 'long run' yesterday as only 3 weeks to snowdon mara. Great for the 1st 10 miles and slowly seized until I could literally  run/ walk no more and phoned hubby to fetch me after 20 miles when house was virtually in sight! Went to see Nan and gave her a big hug as off to gran canaria tomorrow, Dr could not say when (weeks or months) but it is likely her heart will just pack up and frankly it could be anytime. 

Yay to speedy parkrun, nice to be paced but did you manage to out sprint her at the finish???? Pesky children with oodles of energy making it look easy!!! 

Good luck getting your head down today CC  and wow to all your massive catering efforts!! 

Had a hot sweaty boy in with us all night so now I am dog tired and stiff as a board......

No I did not!  And she breezed to the end with a real kick, leaving me sounding like the wheezy old asthmatic that I am!  Plus on the second lap she turned the wrong way so I as yelling at her to turn round and she didn't say thank you at the end.  But there's no way I would have got a nearly 30 sec PB without her as I tend to just not put in as much I effort if I know there's no women in front of me.

as soon as I stopped I was literally surrounded by flying, biting flies who were attracted to my sweat, and i now have about 20 bites on my legs and they are awful! I don't know what they were, I have never been bitten by things like it in this country.  Stupidly because I knew quite a few people there I was standing chatting after, so they were feasting on me.  It was awake at 1am slathering them in anthisan but I don't think it helps, as I've just put loads more on and they still itch!

going for a walk/bike ride in the forest today followed by a pub lunch.

Good work CC and good running too.

Camlo (()) but great running, well done. So envious of you doing Snowdon, you will be fab, CC is right you are a tough bird!

Caro - woo hoo, well done.

Had a great weekend here. Friday night we had a get together with friends in the local hall, 8 couple and 20 kids. Great night. Pool table, table tennis and lots of balls and music to keep kids entertained, plenty of wine to keep adults entertained. I learnt that trying to go a pogo stick in high heeled boots after a bottle of wine is not a good idea! Yesterday me and a friend took the girls (my two and her daughter) for a girly day out which involved ear piercing. Emily fainted after she got hers done and friends daughter refused to go ahead with it after that. Sophie got a second hole done. Then we had a lovely lunch before heading into town. Today a long family walk up a big hill and home to homemade soup and a pretty laid back afternoon.

Pity its Monday tomorrow but like CC only a week until Oct hols. Woohoo

Lotte I think I could have told you that

06/10/2013 at 21:43

Thanks Vixo ... you're the Mary Berry of the thread!

Can anyone recommend good kids roller skates?  Guess what M wants for Xmas.......

They look nice but too big. m's feet are only a 9, and they start at 11.  Does anyone have any smaller ones, that are similar?
