They prob went during the day I imagine. As were leaving at 4am. As they live near Southampton I guess they did a ferry. Which would make a fairly long crossing. Gawd

Hope Vixo got there ok.  CM - would the floods be affecting the M4 at the moment as well?  It isn't normal travelling conditions at the moment!

I've now got a sore throat and a cough and the last thing I want to do is go running in the cold and rain but I will drag myself out tomorrow.  I've had a week off exercise this week because I've had the tummy bug thing that Sophie had and now Nicky's cold - damn germy kids!

TTid - can't believe the costs of having a baby! And that's if it's healthy and doesn't need any follow-up treatment - so potentially you could put yourself in debt by having a baby, is that right?

Oh my god, Simon Cowell called his baby Eric........

argh to Eric and lol to interest free credit. I paid for ivf on interest free credit too and used a markies card to get points so that no matter the outcome I got sth from it.

yeah but you got there first with Eric Caro! And danii minogue called her son Ethan before we did so I worried people would think is copied her so kinda know how you feel! Lol to markers points EF!

just watched splash.... I wanna go diving!!!   (Not scuba, that was scary!)

i find it really sad that we have to pay for IVF, sil is going soon and Ive already promised we'll help her financially if she runs out of cash. 

JG oh the joy of kids spreading germs like wildfire, hope it doesnt hold you back. 

caro - eek to SC using Eric, guess it will make it more popular purely because it will raise its profile. i can imagine worse celebs to copy you though, imagine if katie price used a name you liked! 

New boss sounds fab CM, have you got leave to take too which will lessen the time you actually have to work for current job?

JT - eek to hungry baby interrupting dinner, hope coughing stays quiet, i took some vick over to my sis but it was 5 yrs out of date! 

yippee to valentines messages and reassurances from JT that text speak is ok! 

Another hope that Vixo is dry and warm!

I don't know what you mean about Katie price camlo, she is my role model and a pillar of society

I think we're all safe, the only way KP will name a baby after one of ours is if one of us completely loses the plot and names it Mi'amii Buttplug or something similar

Glad to hear Vixo got there safely. Have read some awful stories about the weather over the last few days in UK.

Ha ha ha ha caro and TtiD. Your posts both made me laugh out loud this Sunday morning!!

I seem to have a knack of picking names that no one else has but r not unusual either. Natalya ( pronounced Natalie) is a well known name but I have only met a couple and they weren't spelt the same way, have only met one with the same spelling and pronounciation and she was Russian. Have seen two Camryn's an American actress and an American singer, never met one in real life, but it sounds very like Cameron which is very common boys name esp in Scotland, so people always expect her to b a boy. I quite like that when she is older people looking at her cv might assume she is a man and might give her an advantage. Although drives me bonkers when people constantly call her Cam-a-ryn, there is no A in the middle of her name aargh!

My poor Mum is back in hospital, had a seizure yesterday morning. Can't find any reason for it yet, ct and X-ray clear, are checking her heart valves for infection and researching her new meds to see if could b them. Although I have known a few people who have had a seizure and never discovered why and never had another. Fortunately she was in bed when it happened otherwise she could have bn badly injured, but of course that will b a constant worry for her now esp if they can't find a cause and rectify it.

Mi'amii Buttplug...I bet there's someone in the world with that name 

Strangely I had just decided to drag my sorry butt out in the sunshine, but I read JT's comment and decided to stay at home!  to staying at home but  to good advice,  Even got my clothes out on the bed but just couldn't bring myself to get dressed and ended up lying on the bed!  Now missing out on trip to the park with the kids and MIL gets to go to the park instead .

It's funny how I know if I'm just being lazy and if I genuinely don't feel like it - I'm usually right though!  Half marathon training is not going well though...

Hope your mum is ok TT, worrying for you. 

16/02/2014 at 17:58

Hope you've all enjoyed your sunny Sundays!  Completely wasted mine feeling rubbish, boo! One more week till half-term at least...

16/02/2014 at 19:29

Hey JG. i am with you today. Full of cold, achy, no energy.... Only 2 wks till my half marathon too.... But saw JTs advice and decided against my LSR today. Did a few miles on FIL's dreadmill last night and felt shattered by the end. Given that I have the kids on my own 7am - 9.30pm every day, I just feel I can't afford to be ill when I need to bf and look after theM. Hoping to be recovered enough to do LSR on Wednesday when I've asked my mum if I can come visit. She lives on edge of Cotswolds so will be lovely running around where I grew up so hoping winds ease and rain stays away! Hate not being out today though as it was so lovely and sunny. 


Impressed by your friend M's cycling etc CM. Am now FB friends with her too - she's brilliant! Your wkend sounded lovely too CC. Right Isaac snoring and hubby just finishing putting E to bed so I'm off to do fajitas for tea with a nice glass of red. Yum. I always have one "day off" healthy eating a week when I have a nice pudding and some wine. Usually it's after my LSR though so feel a bit naughty tonight but cold has wrecked my appetitie anyway so figure I need to try to eat something! Hope everyone has a nice half term! 

16/02/2014 at 19:47

Boo too Brookie, it's pants isn't it?!  Definitely feed your cold, even if you skipped your LSR today (and rightly so).  JT you need to start charging for your advice .  Trouble it, I felt rubbish last weekend too so skipped my run then as well, so my HM training is non-existent at the moment, plus I'm seeing the physio on Friday and will have to confess I've felt too awful to even do the exercises some days !

Feeling brighter this evening at least though still feeling the need for an early night.  I was thinking of that below the neck rule when trying to decide whether to run this morning, and it was a tricky one because I can feel it right at the bottom of my throat, where it meets the collarbone, and it felt as though I was coughing up from below there (sorry TMI!), so I figured that was a "no run" sign, but also wondered if I was just being pathetic and it was just a sore throat!

Oh no, big boo to feeling below par and missing runs especially when you are training for something. 

Hope your mum is better soon TT, i guess she doesnt drive with all her probs anyway otherwise that would be scuppered too?

i like unusual names but not wacky, pity i dont want another baby or i would have kept miiami buttplug in reserve. Ah well, if anyone else wants to use it go ahead! 

Yippee to those on half term, we have one more week until we break up. Am impressed with all the running your kids are doing (karen, lotte etc). 

Had a good squelchy 12 miler earlier, took 3 hours as so boggy! Came home to find hubby had ripped the back door out so had a mad day, entertaining kids, cooking, washing and tidying, hosting visitors and finally wiping down my new back door which is lovely (draft free).

Thanks Camlo, she did drive up until the botched op 18 months ago and she had just begun to b able to drive again on good days. She drove herself to mine on Christmas Day and I could have cried for her she was so happy to have that freedom again. But now that will b scuppered for another yr at least. She got home tonight but they can't find any reason for the seizure. It was a full on convulsing, bit her tongue job too so really scared if it happens again and she is not in the safety of her bed. A fall for her could b horrendous, causing irreparable damage to any of her replacement joints.

I have done very little exercise this wk and I don't have lurgy as an excuse. Kids were off school and was decorating but could have still ran if I had bn up and ready when me Tangy got in from work at 8:30 am but cba. Was supposed to b a cut back wk but not cut back that much. Usually run about 30 miles and do about 34 miles on exercise bike, instead I ran 10 miles oops!

Sounds scary TT, my Mum has epilepsy so i understand where you are coming from.  she is well controlled now but as a kid i remember seeing her with black eyes and bruises. Hopefully your mum has had an isolated event. Didnt realise Mr Tangy worked nights? How do you stay quiet when he sleeps?!



16/02/2014 at 22:43

Yes hope your mum is ok Tangy and they work out what caused seizure. must be v scary for your mum and you. Pleased Vixo got to France safely too. I've had a poor exercise week as well. Started off good with a lovely run last Sunday but very little since. A few walks , a modicum of cycling, one core fitness class..... Hey oh back on it this week soon as I'm better. Just a few post baby lbs to go so determined to get there soon.
