How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Other issue is that he shares with Aidan so leaving him to cry means changing the logistics on that. Gah.
Vixo, I got my snow boots on natureshop after you recommended it a while ago - very pleased with them as its been so cold!
I am watching the programme too RF! Was great to see you in real life as it were on iplayer. And ultimate respect, no way could i do that!
Laughed so much yesterday about winkies causing tonsilitis, hillarious! Hubby was looking wide eyed over my shoulder when he read Camlo's comment!
We have 'fun' at bedtime. Archie goes through phases of being a little clump of frozen mud at bedtimes. We frequently have to do the put back to bed, no eye contact, no talking etc as it is invariably for attention.
MM - Hope you've stopped beating yourself up over the weekend, there are reasons for why you didn't perform to your best, focus on the next bit xxx
TT - hope everyone is on the mend now, sounds a trying few days.
Frazzled here. Had the sad news yesterday that my uncle has been given a fortnight to live. We've been so lucky to have the extra time we got with him. He went into the hospice today, so hopefully he won't have to suffer for much longer. The decline in the end was so incredibly quick. We're still going up at the weekend, whether or not we make it will be a different matter.
In some ways I kind of hope I don't see him terribly ill, the last time I saw him we spent the day on the beach and for some reason spent a couple of hours together on our own, we could never have known that would be the last time we'd spend together then, but selfishly, there's a massive chunk of me who wants to remember him as he was, in his element, on the beach, not as a terribly ill man.
No TVs in kids bedrooms here either. Lily is 10 now and a lot of her friends have their own TVs but it's hard enough sometimes to try and get her to spend family time with the rest of us without the lure of a TV in her room. We have a TV in the front room and another in the play room though which makes life easier when they do have TV time as because of the huge 7yr age gap between Anna and Lily it's tough to find anything they all like. In fact pretty much the only things they all like are Doctor Who or You've Been Framed.
Saw that the 16 kids program was on but didn't watch any. These people are clearly crazy, don't know how anybody could cope with that many kids. I often struggle just with the 3 I've got!
JT - sorry to hear the sad news about your Uncle.
So I've booked myself in for a sports massage on Thursday, thought it might help my old legs getting through the last couple of weeks of training before the half. I haven't had a sports massage in years though so can't remember if they usually leave you feeling worse or better immediately after. Scheduled to run 14 miles the day after but now wondering if I'll be able to or not. What do you ladies reckon?
oh bloo*dy hell Camlo, that sucks. Poor poor Archie, just as well he had his big brother to look out for him . Too much bullying going on a the moment me thinks.
JT - that is so very sad for you. I am very glad that when my granny died I wasn't even in the country (it was a very quick last minute thing), so my only memories of her were when she was fit and healthy (well we thought so anyway). We were very close. ((()))
RF - tbh I'd be having second thoughts with the weather we have at the moment - it's not exactly inspirational is it? Whilst I have been loving the sunshine, the blizzards etc no. I wouldn't beat yourself up if you decide to give it a miss. ITB probs causing the knee perhaps - get rollering ... I am having probs with my PF at the moment so am stretching it like mad.
Kinsey - I'd definitely see if you can sort something out short-term with the older two in together for the mo to sort the sleep - got to be worth it for the long haul, problem is you get so darned tired you can't see a way forward.
Have been watching Robin Hood on Film 4 and having happy memories of running with my old club mates around the Bourne Woods in Farnham as they built the set for the castle up and then burnt it down again!!! Was a fantastic summer where all the locals hung out in the woods with picnics in the evening watching the filming of the battles. Same woods where Gladiator was filmed too. Few members of club were extras . Anyway, happy memories.
Busy old day here, pilates class no. 1 this morning, all three turned up so all good. Quick walk with friend - her eldest son has had on/off cancer since a wee lad, he had a scan in Feb and it's picked up 4 new tumours so chemo not working, he's on a different kind but it's a bit 'last chance saloon' for him (he's 15). Two younger siblings, but like me her husband is away South during the week. She is amazingly strong and calm - on the outside anyway. Nearly missed boiler servicing man but he was delayed. Quick 3 miles on dreadmill before school/swimming and class no. 2 - only one lady turned up so she had 1:1.
I there is no way the kids are having TVs in their room. We do have two - one in the lounge and an old one in the computer room that gets used for Wii or kids watching a film if we have loads of friends round. Kids will be allowed laptop in dining room or similar for any homework related stuff but nope, not buying that one! My SILs kids (4 of them) all have tvs and computers in their rooms, you don't see anyone in the evening! But then the kids all have iphones, tablets, AND laptops ... call me very old-fashioned but that seems really OTT!!
Karen - your legs might feel a bit less sprightly the following day, is often the case but should be lots better day after that. Drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins etc.
X posts Camio - that's awful about the bullying. Hopefully the school will move quickly to put a stop to it. Kids can be so spiteful these days, I'm sure we weren't so mean to each other back when I was growing up. Really hoping that my girls don't suffer from it as I'd find it hard to resist getting hold of the bullying little buggers and sorting them out myself!
