How do you get going again after pregnancy?
hope eric is ok this morning and schooltime brings no new traumas
about to take my car for its 100,000 mile service, so am anticipating traumas of my own later. then a whole day of conference calls and typing up review findings. gah. also have my friend coming over later for a chat. she's running a local 20 mile race at the weekend and i'm going along to lend some support. don't get kids back until monday am as it's holiday time so the normal routine doesn't apply. HATE IT. but we are off to legoland - hoping our friends from edinburgh will be able to get down to join us with all the snow that's around. none here but plenty en route from edinburgh i imagine!
managed to jog a whole 0.6k along the relatively flat section of road at the top of the hill on the way back from the garage. woohooo! no pain. but definitely no gain from that short distance. will do it again in reverse picking car up. in fact, may jog more of it as it is all downhill - just over a mile
also just had email to say that E has reception place for september. not that there should really have been any doubt because we are in catchment and her brother is already at the school, but you can never be 100% about these things!! (paranoid...)
Good news CM. And yay to the good sesh MM.
Hope poorly Tom better soon. Hows Eric today Caro?
Hate living on an island sometimes. Bloody boat is disrupted because of swell in Aberdeen harbour so swimmng trip is cancelled as they won't arrive in time now, and athletics trip looks likely to be off too. Such a shame for all the kids who have trained so hard.
10 miles this morning. Leg feeling ok.
oh that is a bummer, lotte.
got car back. comes to something when you are relieved that it's only 220 quid really! that did include new tyre. but i am glad it wasn't more!! plus car is getting on a bit now; 100k miles and it's a 56 plate so could have been worse
did 2x5 mins with lots of walking (route was 4.5km in total). can feel calf now so lots of stretching and strengthening required. but at least i did it. in the glorious p1ssing rain. haha. typical that after 2 months of calf strain preceded by 2 months of illness, the first time i get out for a trot and it's pishing down!
Much better today thanks, back to old self. Amazing given how hot and miserable he was last night. Delayed vacs though.
It is so COLD!! Apparently this wk end is set to be the coldest March wk end in 50 yrs - just thought that would cheer you up! Matilda has a leaving party for a girl in her class tomorrow - at the Epping Forest Field Centre, for a nice walk in the forest followed by tea. They're going to freeze!
Glad Eric fine. Baltic here too. No snow but snowy showers and strong wind, well into the minus figures with the wind chill. Dylan is on a John Muir outdoor day, they are supposed to be either bog jumping, coasteering or canoeing. Brrr.
Hate 'wasting' money on cars. Glad your bill isn't worse CM.
glad Eric better. they do go up and down very dramatically don't they!?
i guess the only consolation is, lotte, that, even if they got off the island, the rest of the competitors may not make it there... pretty vile weather forecast for lots of places incl southern scotland
yes, it does come to something when you are glad your car service is 'only' £200!! i always used to get it serviced at the dealer but stopped that when i separated from T. use local garage now. dealership for Ford cars in newport was fab - service was great. but price was NOT! local garage is good, too, fortunately. and they are always really helpful.
hope dylan is okay on his outdoor day - that will sort the men from the boys!!
Fab news CM and Lotte. Is that everyone off the bench? Dare I jinx it?
Can't run today Camlo. Hubbie left the house at 6am and won't be back till gone 7pm. Not going out then on a friday night. I need wine tonight and I would like to see hubbie too!! As it is I had to do my dreadmill session at 7.45pm last night once got boys into bed as hubbie was out. So can't face it tonight. Would rather get up early and run tom. If I can't fit in the 2nd one tom not too bothered, only 4 miles easy.
Need a full rest day after a high mileage week and sore legs too. Cold water in the swimming pool has helped though and got away with the walk to church and and back. Not too bad just windy. Lovely easter service and sophie loved all the singing and play acting!!
Boo to all the poorlies. How is Eric Caro?
I have another interview for the job I got a telephone for but can't make the day they have asked for as noone to have the kids at 4pm (rubbish time hey!) as it would take me 45 mins to get there and back again too!!
Also another interview for different job on weds when I do have childcare!! Scarey stuff!
Annoying about the boat Lotte. Guess you just have to set their expectations?
