How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Well my sister added another trophy to her collection today after winning a 10k Thanksgiving Turkry Trot - her prize? You guessed it. A 20lb turkey! I hop she has a lot of friends to share it with!
Yes JT a 4 form entry school - do they get any bigger? I've never heard of 5 form entry, and it is the biggest round here, that's for sure. It is separate from the Jr school in that it has its own head, own teachers etc, but the PTA is one and the same so they share the resources from that, and by all accounts it is very well supported and make a lot of money. I guess I never really appreciated before how much the mponey the PTA raises is really needed to fund schools.
on the plus side i got lou moved up a swim class today as she was going backwards. what a difference! teacher great and worked them all hard.
also got her tap and modern shoes today so she was v pleased.
school wise i have no idea how many are in the whole school but there are 76 primary 1s - 3x 20 per class plus a 1/2 composite of 16 P1s and 9 x P2.
camlo that sounds v much like you have that thing called a life! comedy club til 2am. impressed!
Oh EF that is terrible timing isn't it? I would be completely the same so be kind to yourself for feeling less than cheery about it. Keeping everything crossed for you still.
JT - hope that the cough changing is positive.
RF - I was the same on my potter today! Very slow but I loved it in the late afternoon autumn sunshine. Trying to focus on the enjoyment rather than the lack of fitness .
Poor E hope shes better soon.
JT hope you are on the mend.
Thought CC, RF and Tangy might be interested in this book
Also CC did you see the bit on the BBC news about your neighbours
Its been a mad busy and fairly shite week here.Running has been my sanity so the taper hasn't quite happened but at 80 miles it is 27 miles less than last week so maybe that still counts as a taper! Will be back later for a proper catch up. About to brave the hail and hit the beach for a walk.
Lotte - that is so NOT a taper!!! Running is good for dealing with shite weeks for sure, and you are a running superwoman, no question, but give yourself the best potential for completing blowing away your challenge ... please pretty please??
EF - that is sooooo hard, and I definitely would have been unable to think nice thoughts if that was me. A others have said, it definitely does not make you a cow/horrible person at all and you are on a very rocky rough journey at the moment. Just got everything crossed for you and thinking lots of ++++ thoughts.
JT - really hope stuff is improving, productive coughing has got to be good surely? I know no comparisons, but I am never wheezy with my asthma so there is none of that forewarning.
RF - hope you are not flued up!
Camlo - loving the night out, you lucky soul and well done Brookie for getting out to run. Don't focus on how fit you were two months ago ... onward onward!
Vixo - there have been some nasty cough bugs up here, my friends daughter who is 2.5 has had something for a couple of months now, she's just about stopped coughing. Thankfully the others seemed to just get a mild version but the big thing was the cough. Really really hope it improves. Can't believe you are so close now!!
Mad mad weekend here what with driving down on Fri evening and getting little sleep (knew THAT would happen with all of us in one room!!). Theory paper had a few scary moments (complete mind blank and knowing I was writing bo**ocks a couple of times!!), but somehow managed to pull it off - practical was much better but I was one of the last to do mine. We were a group of eight on the course and we were being the 'clients' for the person being assessed, so took part in 5 30 min pilates classes on Saturday, sat out of a couple!!! Anyway absolutely delighted and soooo relieved, dont' think I could cope with the strain of the logistics for getting to the course, let alone anything else.
Ate in hotel last night and sat polishing off bottle of wine with FIL while hubby took overtired kids off to bed (payback for him sitting in restaurant with FIL on Fri eve while I was trying to do last minute revision in hotel bathroom while hyper kids where NOT going to sleep and driving me nuts ... his mobile wasn't receiving my frantic messages to him!!). Today we all yomped up Arthurs Seat before heading back in our different directions!
INSET days now for Mon and Tues so haven't run since Thursday - bah... five whole days of no running - eek!!
bit quiet on here today girls!!
Very exciting INSET day doing jobs but kids played well while I cleaned!
Vixo - boo to the bu**ered back and return of the vomiting too ; have you taken her in to see anyone today? I had to resort to going for walks with my Leki poles when I was pregant with S right near the end, kept me sane, kept me upright and her in a good position and kept my back in one piece!!
How you doing today JT and EF too?
Hope you are on the mend now with some sort of diagnosis JT.
Vixo, rubbish to the bad back and vomming. Not what you need. Anything that is kind of push/pull seems to tweak my back at the moment, so I try to avoid hoovering, sweeping etc. Hoovering isnt so easy to avoid but I can quite happily not rake the leaves
Brilliant news on qualifying CC. So is that it now? You can teach any level pilates? Fabulous
EF - hope you're ok. Does your family know what you are going through at the moment? Still thinking positive thoughts for you.
Not a great day here, took hubbys car into the garage to get new tyres and ended up needing 4 of them, plus tracking and minus ££££. AND we still need to get something done to the suspension which is going to be more money. Grrrr!!! Got a short run in at lunch time whilst Leila was in school but feeling a bit coldy so took it especially easy.
Hubby is away now for 2 nights which isn't helping me feel any less fed up. Hey ho, hope tomorrow I wake up in a better mood!! I should really be doing some work, but think I am going to have a hot chocolate and go to bed!!
Indeed it is quiet- guess Mondays are catch up with housework, shopping, work etc day.
Vixo- hope baby shifts down soon to give you some space, I must admit I never felt any relief myself towards the end as I got bigger and bigger but some describe a definate improvement if baby engages dont they?
CC- I hate inset days as often the holiday club is shut too so you are totally b*ggered for child care. Glad your angels were good for you! Glad you got a reward of wine and yomping (that sounds dodgy...)
JT- scary episode for you and disgusted by the argueing going on around you when you were in. Its hard to have faith when professionals cant agree! When we were in hosp with Archie the staff were argueing over the dose of sedative they needed to effectively put him into a coma so they could put him on life support. I was terrified!!
Looked myself up on power of 10 yesterday.... I have a handicap of around 15 which I thought was pretty good until I looked a few of you up (Lotte about 6??). Heyho!!
Had a slow 5k before work and skipped in feeling really good.... until i had another email declaring me deskless again. gggrrrrrrrr.
