Old bird? Me? Fickle? Me? Oh please!

Yes as Tippy said I have been a very busy bird lately. Missed three gym classes last week.  However, on the plus side have had two very enjoyable runs with the Tipster - Tuesday eve and then this morning.  I ended up adding a bit on and got to 21 miles. Could have done without the cold headwind for the last 7ish miles, but otherwise entertaining as usual.  We were definitely given the eagle eye by a low flying Red Kite at about mile 17.  I think he saw me as his dinner!  

Would have liked to take it easy for the rest of the day but have been doing jobs at parents. Just had din dins, and a bottle of red is on the go.

On the 'old front' I have informed Mrs E that I intend to live a long time as I don't want to deprive the world of me!

Well done on your stupidly long run Eagle!!
You would be a sore loss to the world, that's for sure! Please do make sure that you stick around! 
I intend to live a long time and be a burden to my children. 

I'm going to have a slobby evening now, giving my armchair opinion on the Strictly contestants.

Evening from a proud but tired grandma. Glass of bubbly anyone? Speedy pours another glass. Well I have to celebrate number 5 grandchild

Very well done on the long run boys. You really are great motivation.

Having canx all my classes this week hopefully now I can get back to the gym. Have had the last week off work to care for daughters so back to work on Tuesday.

Off to a dig tomorrow.

If I dug into the ground today Speedy all I would do is create a lake!
It's hideous weather down here. Howling wind and lashing rain. And it's cold.

I'm considering running in one direction only (with the wind obviously) and then catching a bus back home! Or just staying indoors in the warm and dry!

Just stopped raining at the palace. Tippy lake has now joined Tippy moat so am marooned.
I will have to wait for RE to fly past and air lift me
04/11/2012 at 10:31

Oooh, you don't want to be airborne on a day like this Tippy. There's no telling where you'd end up! I'd stay inside the palace if I were you and amuse yourself watching the dragon frollicking in the moat.

Limper I did not know you knew my OH was swimming in the moat.
04/11/2012 at 18:27
Now Tiptoes. Be nice about OH. Lol.

Weather dry but bitterly cold. Field was a muddy, squelchy mess. I had no great finds - a musket ball was the best I found and some coin but so worn can't make out what it is. Hubby on the other hand found a gents 18ct gold signet ring engraved 'From NH 1916'.

Mind you 5 hrs trailing up and down swinging a metal detector most have used up a fair few calories.

Norty Tippy!!!

You're not going to be financing our thread Christmas outing at this rate then Speedy?!

I set out for a 10 mile XC but got bored at 3 miles and was home by 4 miles. Via the sweetie shop. Whoops!! 

04/11/2012 at 21:16
No I am not Limper I am still wishing for that great find.

At least you made it out the door. 4 miles is good. I must have walked that in my 5 hrs.

Just watched X Factor. Total farce.
04/11/2012 at 21:56
Dun dun dun.
Was bored and watched it while ironing the royal jim jams
05/11/2012 at 08:22

I don't wear jim jams.

05/11/2012 at 08:29

Thats why you have cold Talons. (clean version)

Morning Mr E

05/11/2012 at 18:31

I suspect Eagle wears a 'onesie' instead of jimjams!

It's very cold in Limperland.

...lays hands on everyone just to prove a point...

Limper, if i had not got OH out of the moat they would be a permenant fixture.

Tis -2 at the tower.

Of for a jogette with RE tonight so hopefully keep warm

06/11/2012 at 20:24

Joggette completed.  There were quite a few folk out & about, most of them went under the name A. Hole. When Tippy has had a bad day at w*rk he makes me run faster. He had a bad day today.

06/11/2012 at 21:04

... passes Eagle a soothing cup of tea...

When Limper has had a bad day at w*rk she doesn't run at all.
I didn't go running tonight.
