Blimey girls, you have more luxuries camping than I have at home!! Seriously.

Up at the crack of dawn for a long plod with Mr and limpette so better get me jama's on and head off to bed.
Hope everyone has a nice Sunday doing whatever you are doing. Enjoy.

Night night.

morning all,

hope you are having a good plod limper and family.

Considerably fed up here. Nothing like doing something you don't do regularly for noticing how much worse things have got. Running has been gradually getting stink since last Nov., but every really bad run there is, I can always hope with reasonable confidence that there still will be a better one (even if it is not as good as the last good one).

Try things I haven't done for a while, well, it comes as a shock, and a nasty one at that. Wasn't ready for it, panicked and ran. Now ashamed.

Oh well. On the way home met the chain-gang preparing to go off. Learned that there is a half day ride starting at 2:15. I'll go along there and tag along at the back til I lose sight of them and then come home. At least nobody there will know me, and if I do chicken out and retreat tail between legs, it'll be only strangers who think me an incompetent wimp.

Ah well, back to harmonic functions and some really nasty approximations. All for son#3, who is writing up lecture notes for publication..

(I wouldn't touch harmonic functions with bargepole you understand, eeeuugh, scary stuff.)
20/08/2006 at 10:53
oh no

not harmonic funvtions-------

There's no accounting for taste. Rumour has it that someone loves these things.

Our kitchen is going to get destroyed in a month. Scary. We've had it for 22 years.
20/08/2006 at 11:20
new kitchen

what colour scheme?
20/08/2006 at 11:53
Actually the same as was: cork floor, pale yellow cabinets, grey-pink granite worktops, yellow-pink wall tiles. the differences will be-

I will not actually have to get down on hands and knees with a match to light oven,

there will be room for a kitchen table,

the freezer will move back into the kitchen,

the tumble dryer will no longer routinely be shaken to bits by the washing machine underneath.

I am sentimental about the old stove though. I think it must be about 75 years old, and we are good friends. Sad to replace a good friend. Sad also to replace my beloved extra-thick cork tiles, which hubby and I put in ourselves when we were young and foolish. I've bounced full milk bottles on those tiles. I doubt I will managed that with the replacements.

Had to happen though. It was getting beyond a joke, even allowing for me being me and hubby being hubby.

Oh yes, and the cupboards will actually have doors, and the doors will actually open and close.
20/08/2006 at 12:09
stickless, how can you do that to your kitchen. Doors on cupboards, oh no

akshully i did that to my 25 year old kitchen 3 years ago...... found out who my friends were by those who fed us for three weeks and those who said 'didn't pop in cos i knew you couldn't make acup of tea'....

been out hippo only for about three secondsm but am bright red and sweaty eeeow

did try out my new toy - Lateral Thigh Trainer...thought it would be hilarious and i was right, but it in't bad at all good warm up and great laughing and the whiny american on the dvd....

off for my shah now

ah hello francy, three secs is better than duck.

I'm thinking of taking out a contract with the mediterranean cuisine joint round the corner...

zzz time now, and then see if I am brave enough to find the chain folk.

Hello Hipps and Sticks and Francy :o)

And everyone else who may be around.

It was in the 5 year plan that was made 7 years ago and doesn't look like happening within the next 3 or 4.
I'm sure I'd be able to cook if I had a new kitchen!

Have done a family ploddle followed by a solo ploddle to get the car to rescue the family!!
It was luvverly out though and I got licked by a herd of bullocks! They must have liked the smell of me!!
