That's why I make my own bread - today's loaf had in it wholemeal and white flour, porridge oats, flax seeds, ground nuts, chia seeds and co enzyme Q10 (whatever that is!) and tasted yum!

At work in Highbury, lovely sunny day and went for a 4 mile power walk at lunch.  Am feeling a lot more positive about my back, saw osteo again last Tues and going back this Tues.  Was sore the day after but then so much better.  The other osteo I saw before xmas did absolutely bu**er all in comparison.  Honestly I can't believe the NHS is wasting good money sending people to her!  And as for the NHS physio who told me there was no such thing as having misaligned joints and that all the cause of my back pain was due to my weak stomach muscles (I can hold a plank for over a minute thank you very much!)......well I hope she one day has a baby with a large head and then we'll see what she thinks!!

Working tomorrow, hubby taking kids to in laws then they leave on a cruise for 18 days on Monday.  F in L had his CT last Tues but no results yet from that or biopsy, and now they wont get them till they get back.  I really hope waiting a few more wks to start treatment wont make a big differrence.

Thinking of going to Cantebury and Herne Bay on Mon, for hubby's seaside fix.  hope to get some shopping done as I have no clothes.  I have gone through yet another pair of trousers on the knee, they last me no more than 6 months!

Karen your 5 mile forest run sounds lovely, I met Orion once whilst out running and was a bit lost so had to ask directions.  V jealous.  Hopefully soon.......

have had a SHITE day so posting before I hit the bottle

Had my sis and bro in laws funeral but before the service even started her godmother collapsed and died in the church. I cannot describe the agony of seeing 2 coffins arriving together with a bike escort and hearing the most painful eulogy before a procession through the town. My ex carried his sister and I could see his heart breaking as he lowered her into the ground. Just awful day.

Oh sweetie how awful. Massive loads of hugs Camlo. I hope you are ok. X

Oh and caro meant to post about Canterbury. It's lovely. Hubbie did a sandwich year for Pfizer (as was) in sandwich in Kent many moons ago ( at least 17-18 years ago!) and we were often in Canterbury shopping or training. Was a lovely time in our lives must admit

Hope you have had a glass by now Camlo and are not on your own tonight.  Absolutely hate funerals.  I would cry even if I was part of a 'rent a crowd' at the funeral of someone I didn't know!

Good news from us - CT scan shows F in L's cancer hasn't spread.  Biopsy results do indeed show it is cancer, but I have no idea what of or what type - I am hoping they have got a copy of the results like I asked them to so I can actually read it and understand, and have a look at treatment protocols etc.

Thanks MM, am looking forward to it.  Just need to avoid getting shot in Tottenham or Enfield tomorrow......

Oh good god Camlo that sounds truly horrific day for you . Huge hugs (((((()))))

03/05/2013 at 21:11

oh god camlo (((())) what a terrible day. 

Caro relieved to hear some good news re fil. 

As for a sunny bank hol well it's pi55ing down and blowing a gale and I could swear I've been time travelled into November. Only I'm still pregnant so that can't be right! 

03/05/2013 at 21:38
Hugs Camlo. Thinking of you.
03/05/2013 at 21:48

Oh I did have some happy news too. The other preg girl at work had a wee girl today - Elizabeth. 

03/05/2013 at 21:51

Oh Camlo, that's awful.  Hope you are ok xx

03/05/2013 at 21:58

Camlo, sounds truly horrific. Glad you have got such an awful day behind you. I don't remember if you said, did they have kids?  Nothing chokes me up more than seeing grown men cry. Hugs to you and hope the wine helps.

Good luck with sleep training Hoggle. Since Oscar turned 3 months earlier this week he has slept a dream. We have had to wake him up the last few mornings after 9:30!

03/05/2013 at 22:23

Camio - what a horrible, horrible day. So sad ((()))

Trying to plan something nice for the sunny bank holiday - it's been so long since we've had one will be nice to be out and about. Thinking about going to Broadstairs which is on the coast not too far from us (not too far in London terms meaning 2 hours away). Have been trying to find a last minute hotel for the Sunday night so we can go down Sunday afternoon (and hopefully miss the daytripper traffic) and then come back Monday afternoon. Problem is finding somewhere that can provide a family room with room for 3 kids as most places only offer 1 or 2 extra beds in family rooms. Will try a few more places tomorrow and hopefully find somewhere.

Issie has a fancy dress party to go to in the morning and I've been a rubbish mum and haven't planned anything for her to wear. Am considering just sending her all dressed in black and painting her face as a cat unless anybody has any other quick and easy ideas for fancy dress costume?

We had some bad news today, our neighbours a few doors up whose eldest daughter is best friends with Issie and whose youngest daughter is best friends with Anna are leaving London . When the dad told me this morning it was obvious that they really struggled making the decision and they're not leaving because they're unhappy here just because they want to be closer to the sea and they'd been considering moving further south for a while now. So because of that I was trying to be very positive about it for him, then when I got home and told hubby I just started crying. They're such a lovely family and I guess I'd just already imagined them all growing up together and I just feel really sad that the kids won't be able to do that now. Issie is going to be so upset when she finds out . Such a shame.

Right, hubby is out so it's an early bed and no wine for me tonight.Night all.

oh Camlo that is so incredibly sad. Did I read right that her godmother died at the funeral - can it get any worse?

huge hugs to you (())


04/05/2013 at 12:14

couldn't get any worse - no. 

Went out with friends last night and was glad of the company and several large drinks! 

Yippee to everyones holiday and running plans but boo to friends moving away. 

Just made pizzas with the boys and looking out at the sunshine but really can't face actually going out. 

04/05/2013 at 18:44

Glad u had some company & a few large drinks Camlo. Look after yourself now (((()))).

karen- we have just been through all that & yes it was very difficult & I still miss my friend dreadfully. The girls do miss Innes but don't say much. I actually got a letter from NZ today from her which was nice.

I'm rubbish at putting together a fancy dress costume in a hurry- I think a cat sounds fine!!!!

weather pish here!!! Was 0 degrees & snowing last night FFS, not impressed. Warmer today but still rain showers, yuk couldn't face a wee run when we got back fron Inverness so jump on the turbo & did 40 mins instead. Planning a long road cycle tomorrow so hope it stays dry & not too windy!

turbo- wow to a baby that sleeps, you are VERY lucky!!!

Caro- glad its better news from FIL.



04/05/2013 at 18:52

Hoggle- good luck with the sleep training. Don't back down

CC- hope your having fun in Aberdeen! Sounds good.

Im on a night on Monday, first one i"ll have done since about 3 years, yikes!!! Not looking forward to that. In fact most of my shifts in the next few wks are nights, yuk.

 Bought some curtains out of dunelm mill today actually to put up in our bedroom. We do have blackout blinds but some light gets in from the sides so just bought some cheap curtains  and poles for now! Hoping hubby will put them up tomorrow. No school on Monday so luckily my MIL can take the girls in the afternoon so I can have a wee lie down before night duty!

just had pizza and salad for dinner & a wee glass of red.

hope you all have fab weekends )

Feeling rather emotional as have two wee boys needing hugs after waving good bye to their best mate. He is off to India for the year with his parents. Dad in the RAF. Had him and his big brother for the afternoon as their parents had to finish off clearing the house ready for rental. Going to miss the parents horribly too. Very good friends, but they are coming home next year, so not forever. Thank god for skype. Harry especially is feeling very sad . Think I might need some wine....

04/05/2013 at 20:06

Oh Camlo.  That sounds absolutely devastating.  I hope you're OK, love - be kind to yourself. ((()))

MM, hope the boys are OK.  Sounds quite emotional your way as well, and hugs to Karen too.  I'm slightly paranoid about getting too close to people in case they move away - happened three times when I was at school (two best friends at primary school and one at secondary school), then I made a close mum friend and they moved to America for her hubby's work - but decided after a year they didn't want to make it permanent and are now back, which is lovely!

MM, as you haven't missed training or even running and have enjoyed having more time, why not take a break from marathons for the rest of the year?  Why put yourself through all that training over and over and over again unless you're absolutely loving it?  Must admit I don't know what to do myself - I will do something in the next few weeks for sure, just to use my VLM training, but not sure whether I can face training through yet another winter, especially as my mum read/heard on the radio that we're likely to get severe winters like we've just had for the next decade - the joy!

Caro, sounds like cautious optimism about your back - and good news(ish) about FIL.

Right, glass of wine beckons.  M&S Dine in for £10 is in the oven (bank holiday treat) and hubby is just tidying up after doing loads of gardening this afternoon.  My day was spent as the family taxi service - ferrying hubby to rowing club at 7:30am, back for shower and to throw some washing in the machine, then straight to swimming with Kit.  Then straight back to rowing club to collect hubby, back home for lunch, put washing on airer (SO glad I didn't risk hanging it out - thunderstorm, hail, the works!) then Kit had a party at a soft play this afternoon.  Got back 6pm, hubby got him ready for bed while I nipped out to M&S.  Feel like I've spent all day in the car and surrounded by noise, so enjoying some peace and quiet now!  Got a nice 12 miler planned tomorrow through Epping Forest with running buddies, looking forward to that.

Heard about the hail Minks but never saw any which I'm glad about, as I worked this morning in Tottenham, then walked the 5 miles from there to Enfield for my afternoon job.  PLeasant stroll in the sun - although it was match day in Tottenham so got out of there pretty sharpish!  Finding it very interesting doing essentially the same job in different parts of London, the demographic is so diverse only a few miles apart.

Had my wine quota for the evening,  Think its time to start on the choccie with the paper - wild and crazy that's me
