How do you get going again after pregnancy?
LOL CM, have to say, J went through a really awful stage of the willy-fiddling but thankfully it has passed -- well, he doesn't spend his whole time doing it now anyway, just sometimes, got heartily fed up of reading Harry Potter to him with him fiddling away, gave him a stress ball to play with instead!!!
Are you going alone Camlo? If so, I'd make it as long a trip as possible!!!
banana omelette?! can't think of much worse. that sounds
hope your ride was nice. think you managed a run also from FB?
definitely to banana omelette
kids were asking about going biking in the dark yesterday RF - thought of you, now need to dig around in garage and see how many random bike lights we've got kicking around, reckon Culbin Hill 99 trail at night would be fabee
boo to pished hubby and carp cold weather. We had same here today RF and it's still going.
So yes, as per RF, drizzle and 1 degree but orienteering anyway. J went on own round a white course (easiest) and emerged safely, I took S round same course and she did most of the map reading (all the flags are on path junctions), then hubby pitched up and took charge and I did my light green course, not last, but not fast either but I didn't get lost so now I know I can do it I need to start taking a few risks on the navigating front!!
Calf niggle was there but seems no worse after a few kms of jumping over logs, bracken, gorse and brambles in the rain!!
Yeuch to conjunctivitis
Hubby gone again, seems like he hardly arrived!
Going to try and trundle through some training next week and HOPE the calf doesn't deteriorate further.
Somehow ended up in complex conversation with kids about abseiling and climbing tonight, complete with table-top demos with bits of string ... so aside from night riding, they want a trip climbing wall - I'm not complaining about any of that!!
yes, am putting it on my Christmas list! Rested the calf for three days!!! No, seriously, am not intending to do any thing long or harsh on it for a couple of days and see how it holds out. Calves are tight anyway so am rollering them to pieces!!
Orienteering is great fun and a real family activity once they get old enough to understand the basics. J at 8 is only just old enough I feel to let him do his own thing but it is seriously good fun.
I lov MBKing but wet tree roots scare the hell out of me so seriously respect RF.
Boo to nasty cold Camlo - hope you have a hot toddy on hand ... worked a treat with my last cold, well Whisky Macs anyway
This would probably be your local lot RF, unless there are any North of you http://www.invoc.org.uk/
As to me being great at Orienteering ... I'm a slow map-reader I think, good at knowing where I am and where to go to, but just takes me a while to put jigsaw together sometimes, way better when I've been doing it regularly. My friend who also does it, just seems to be able to scan map and go and not really ever get misplaced (bugger!!!) and beats me hands down every time, dispite being a slower runner. I think, if I can get good enough to do the longer courses (dream on) that would work in my favour as I have good stamina. I was cautious today cos I really messed up in the last bigger race because I ran too fast and missed stuff, so today I took longer, more certain routes to places. But as my non-competitive son (doesn't take after his mother obviously) pointed out to me today "but mummy, if you are enjoying it, that's the main thing isn't it?", whereas Scarlett is already trying to work out how to be faster - that's my girl!
That's just the sort of thing my J would do CM.
I made Orange Polenta cake yesterday, it's yummy, but am only person in house who likes it.
Noooooo Caro, nightmare!
this was a Rose Prince recipe from the telegraph, last time I made it I didn't have polenta so used semolina and it was just as yummy, and I LOATH semolina in any form usually.
Right away to bed for me too
