Blimey JT somehow I missed that you were pregnant!!  I know I don't post much but I do read but that one slipped right past me!  Massive congratulations - he looks scrummy!


Big hugs CM.x

CM- my Hubby says you could put your Auntie or Cousin down as your next of Kin given that you have no contact with parents.

10/01/2014 at 16:11

Tt - mental health act is different. Under normal circumstances you can 'choose' your next of kin. But in this circumstance I can't. I will have to put them on the form but I will also add a note saying I don't want them contacted, and put my aunt down.

I have been for a muddy run at the wetlands. I need a shower now and to finish all the work that I couldn't do this morning as I was too busy stressing about this stupid form.

Hmm CM I would just put your aunt.  The health service can be pretty unreliable and they might get in touch with your parents 'by accident' which would really not be helpful.  There must be other people who don't want their parents as their next of kin anyway.  At the end of the day you are an adult so its your choice xx

Kinsey - I don't think I can do that, as the Mental Health act specifies who is your next of kin. I will talk to them about it anyway and explain the situation. I can't be the only person ever in this situation.

CM i have been skimming a bit so may have missed sth. what is the form for? Does it specify that you need to use the hierarchy?  I know there's no option short of going to court if it does but it seems a heck of a sledgehammer and nut situation for getting counselling. I would leave it blank for now So their details are never recorded unless it becomes unavoidable. 

10/01/2014 at 19:01

EF - thanks. The form is for my asessment for treatment at what I have now found out is a private mental health hospital. OMFG. anyway, i have to fill in details, including my next of kin and it specifies that it needs to be in accordance with the MHA 1983. i assume that this is in case they need to section me or get police involved or whatever. when i looked on the website it talks about forensics and all sorts. eeeek. anyway it does sound very serious, but it's just the place that my private health insurance (through work) uses. hopefully they will actually be good. i really hope so. i do feel like i'm slowly sinking without trace.

Definitely talk to them CM, given that ur depression is 

in part (a huge part in my opinion) due to the parenting u received, it seems 

extremely unfair that u should have to put them dwn as next 

of kin. x

I did think it was likely to be in case they needed to section you should they deem that necessary and in the event that you refused to go voluntarily. Hopefully therefore this is an unnecessary worry and your parents will not be contacted. Glad you are trying to dig your way out of the black hole. (()). Xx

Cracking letter Caro!

Hugs and thoughts with you CM, x

JT - so pleased you went with the name you wanted - good choice! Hope you're both doing well and are home soon (already?), and that your 2 big boys like their new little brother!

Off for a spot of parkrun tourism this morning in Pontypool. Followed by several hours of trying to plant bare root hedging to replace my fence which blew over in the storms.
11/01/2014 at 13:12

Boo to the hedge.  Hope PR was fun.  Mine was a killer.  Forgot my inhaler and boy did I know about it.  Either that or it was the 2 glasses of wine last night or general fatigue. Cycled 3 miles each way which was fun, ran 21.15 with maximum effort (PB only last month was 20.24) was easily beaten by another woman but she didn't have a barcode, so as far as PR will be concerned I will be 1st lady, but as far as I'm concerned it doesn't count

I won a competition in a local paper last month for a Polar heart rate sensor which I picked up this morning.  Had to have my pic taken with the guy giving it to me - very cheesy!  Only trouble is I don't think it's compatible with anything I own.  It works by bluetooth and we have 3 things with bluetooth but the all says version 2 and it says 4, so I dont think it will work but am not sure, and am too thick about these things to know!  So havent taken it out of the packet yet incase its useless.

11/01/2014 at 15:42
Well I was 1st lady. In my age category. . 8th lady overall but there were only 96 runners in total so it wasn't much of an achievement really given I was 50th out of 96.

I have planted out 120 bare root hornbeam hedge plants and am now off to opticians.
11/01/2014 at 19:57

Own that 1st place CM!!!! Great effort!

11/01/2014 at 23:04

Yeah definitely a first place in my book CM! I love inventing categories. When I did my last race (just a 10k) even though it was my slowest ever race time over that distance and I was well down the field, I told myself I was the first ( or only?) 20 week pregnant finisher! 

Hope you can get counselling sorted and that it helps CM. 

Gpod running and cycling Caro. Need to find a park run near me now we've moved. Would love to join a running club but have no evening childcare so can't see it ever happening. 

Waves to Xhymahchymannah (autocorrect???!!!! Is that even a word ?!) chynah I mean and Minks. Gonna quit now before autocorrect finishes me off!

oh and Lotte and RF - lOVE seeing pics of where you run on FB.

Whoop whoop, some fab PB's and placings, and loving pics on fb of scrummy babies, new haircuts and muddy trainers. 

Hope you are getting some rest JT, so nice to have 3 boys! Glad the section went without a hitch. 

CM - it may seem scary receiving such forms and going to a specialist place but thats a good thing and hopefully will mean the help will be spot on. Fab running and hope the hedge grows. 

CC any news on the entry yet? 

Is RF doing the puffer this weekend?? Post on fb spoke of freezing in wool socks? 

I forced myself out for a quick 6 on Thursday, took kids and niece for a jog yesterday and then a proper cross country today so feeling much better. Only 2 weeks until Tough guy so needed to get my act together.

Morning everyone (well it is here!). Its not a god start when I'm already mucking about on the internet on a Monday morning instead of working!!

Walked to daycare with M in the buggy and ran home again (ok ran/walked but my runs were longer!). Didn't like running with the buggy at all but as I was late and had a Skype call to get back for it was a necessity!!  Hubby is supposed to be away for 3 days this week doing a tramp around the mountain (Mt Taranaki) so will be needing to run on my own and fit it in during work time as there is no way I can push the buggy with Matilda in it!!

Nice weekend here, sleeping is going better and M is handling not having day naps really well. Falling asleep in the car is the main problem - we went out to a beach about 40 mins drive away on Friday to meet friends for a swim and fish and chips for dinner and M slept the whole way and was ridiculously grumpy once we got there. Ah well, that will work itself out I guess. I have worked out the pattern to when she is naughty and now can usually intercept before it escalates which means the house is calmer! 3 days on my own might see a descent into madness though!

Loving the photo's JT. My sister had double mastitis in the weekend and Mae has thrush in her mouth so that's a bit of a pain for them. But she can't get over how easy a baby can be!

12/01/2014 at 23:35

Ahhh CC - I feel your pain with husbands in a muddle! Thankfully we have worked through that muddle now and hubby knows what he wants to be doing. Now just got to put it into action! Can't fault him, he's tying hard but its the age old story of trying to get your first break. Once he's had one job he will be fine and there are plenty of jobs out there, just need someone prepared to take him at entry level! Fingers tightly crossed that the place he is doing work experience will get busy REALLY soon and take him on. I'm really pushing him to do this tramp - 3 full days/nights on his own in a beautiful place will really help motivate him I think.

Well done on the 18 miler CC. fingers crossed for UTMB, is it a simple ballot to decide places?

Good work on the parkruns Caro and CM.

Poor muddled thread hubbys!  Mine didn't get the job was reserve candidate and got really good feedback. Should hear this week whether the funding for his current job is being continued.

Busy old weekend here. Saturday was taken up mainly with kids stuff, athletics, swimming comp, football. Did also manage to get passport photos done for them all and a long overdue haircut for Dylan.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, calm, clear but very frosty.We had a family trip to a local race *well except Sophie who we dropped at netball training). Was a lovely sociable day out with teas in the school afterwards and a great chance to catch up with running friends. Two race options -  7.2 mile and a 4 mile, constantly undulating with a few cheeky climbs. Was pleased to run 48 mins for 2nd place (first lady)  in the 7 mile race and Dylan ran 27 mins to win the 4 miler. Only 40 competitors mind you! The last 3 miles were pretty slippy underfoot which was tricky but I was pleased with my run after such a long layoff. Dylan is just flying just now. There was only two juniors in the race. Sophie wasn't running and I thought 4 miles was a bit too far for the Reecinator! (Plus selfish me wanted to run it hard on my own!!) At this rate it will not be long before Dylan can beat me!

Hubby was called out with he coastguards last night so a bit of a disturbed night. Could just have a wee snooze but better get some caffeine and then on with my work!
