How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Glad your getting some sunshine Hoggle, certainly helps when the chips are down.x
CC - hope you start to feel better soon, as for spending the day in bed, I'm a firm believer that your body tells you what you need. unfortunately that frequently is the justification for my chocoholics anonymous subscription
Lotte - forgot to say congrats yesterday, that is an awesome acknowledgement.
Caro -. Grr..... That is so frustrating...
Hmm, well met up with some friends yesterday evening who were talking about the car, apparently it's the third one in the last couple of weeks! The first guy apparently was opening his passenger door when they leapt in and nearly ran him over in the process. Starting to feel like I live in the Bronx! Hopefully they'll turn their attentions to another area soon :-S
Boo Hoggle to the bad back but good that the sun is at least shining which does help to lift your mood somewhat. Small improvements are better than no improvement so fingers crossed you're heading in the right direction.
Happy birthday Eric And yes Caro, not acceptable for your sister to fail to acknowledge his first birthday (or any birthday, for that matter) - it doesn't take much to put a card in the post even if she does live in the US.
JT, OMG re. the car jacking, that is awful. We regularly put the key in the ignition and get things running while we de-ice the car; wouldn't even cross my mind that someone might take it off the driveway! Can't believe your breathing problems began a year ago - that is such a long time.
CC, agree with others that your body will tell you when it needs rest and clearly yours does. I had a horrible fluey bug thing a few weeks ago when the first dollop of snow arrived, and was all set to crawl under the duvet wearing several layers when we got a text from the school saying they were closing at lunchtime and we had to pick up our children. So no rest for me! Ended up having about three nights waking soaked in sweat (having to change PJs in the middle of the night) but feeling shivery and cold - oddly felt OKish during the day - and then it seemed to subside. I blame the constant temperature fluctuations for all these bugs this year, it seems worse than usual.
Have had a lovely couple of days with Kit. He is such good company and we have had lots of fun doing things together, as well as a couple of play dates with two of his friends from school. Sad to be at work today.
Last week's snow meant rejuggling the days I ran last week - normally I'd do Monday but it was just too icy everywhere. So ran Saturday instead, but that's meant by the time I've run tonight I'll have done 6 consecutive days of running which I never usually do. Saying that I feel OK on it and even managed a reasonably fast-paced run last night but think I need to take it a bit easier tonight. I seem to have bruised the top of my left foot too, just where the bony bit is - think I may have laced my running shoes a bit too tightly last week when I did the treadmill run; first noticed it during that run but because I was unfamiliar with the treadmill I didn't want to stop it in case I lost all the data! Shoved a load of arnica cream on it last night and this morning so hopefully that will do the trick!
Quickly popping in for some advice from guys who've had it. We've got our first ever bout of worms. Sophie has been waking up screaming at night and has a very sore bottom. Initially thought thrush but last night she was in agony again despite using cream like doc suggsted on the phone. Spotted a wriggler. OMG!!!
Anyway hubbie rushed to the open late chemist in town and we've all been medicated. Am now washing all bedding and am going to clean the house from top to bottom today. Is that all I need to do or do we need to take a 2nd dose and keep cleaning fastigiously. Never had it before, guess we've been lucky? Or maybe just never spotted it before?
oh grim, MM. we haven't had them (yet)
hoggle - hope you see some improvement soon
i can now put my heel on the floor but i can't walk on the foot like that, so i'm still limping. london yesterday was a PITA. everyone rushes and there are loads of stairs everywhere and i was in the way. it was a bit better wearing my work boots yesterday - they have a small heel. but i don't have any shoes with a proper heel as i don't wear them.
camlo - chessington is 2.5 hrs from here, so that's not too bad for us
have just booked legoland for easter - going with a friend who has moved to edinburgh. staying in a hotel in bracknell, so the kids will be super excited
have restarted my alternate day fasting and am going to really go for it this time as i am doing no exercise at all, not even any walking as i can't. yesterday i did a complete fast. apart from being totally freezing by the end of the day (2 hours on a cold train), i felt fine. in a way it's easier to diet when you are doing no exercise as you don't get hungry and you can't justify needing to eat to have energy to exercise. am going to go for broke this time and see if i can get down to 10stone. have always wimped out at about 10st 5 before as i can't get lower than that when exercising. i'm 5ft 9 so that should be fine. just worried i'm going to have a turtle neck as i am now a bit scraggy and old!
What about a 2nd dose of medication is that necessary? She has gone to nursery as they said thats fine and my washing machine is very busy! Are we going to keep getting it now then? So yuck and we're such a clean household, can't quite believe how yuck! Anyway off for a run...
oh and caro - mean of your sister not to acknowledge Eric's first birthday. i haven't heard from my parents in a year now. it was feb half term that we had the police incident last year, and a year has gone by with no contact...
