HI all

Thanks for being there! I realised just at the tail end of the tables that I had run past you!

Oh no, having flashbacks to the Chandos pacing group tour.....and found some drunken texts I sent, something about mouthing off to a group of young lads, about what I cannot remember......

Getting home was frankly a miracle.

A great day......possibly for my liver, just as well it is only once a year!

Is there not a Mile 17 at the Olympics?

We could have a table with jaffa cakes & all!

do you not remeber the 'youths' on the DLR Foxy...??

we were singing the wheels on the bus to them..... we were 'on their patch' or something

I'm sure Paula et al would enjoy stopping at mile 17 for jelly babies and assorted fun and sugar based snacks

And the DLR alarm and said youths being removed from the train?
23/04/2012 at 16:30
Oh dear oh dear

I had a wonderful time.  DL, we weren't worried about your salt face.  There were a lot of much sweatier people who insisted on sharing hugs with us.

Why can't I see any posts from foxy

Oh it's all coming back, I remember dropping crisps everywhere.... but never lost my first aid kit!

SBH??? Helloooooo????

Do you think the "yooths" are discussing the drunkards on the DLR on MSN?!

I can see you now!!! Lord only knows how I managed to block you must have hit something on my phone

I can see everything and everyone ... and a whole lot more clearly than I did at this time yesterday

Now safely tucked back into the NE corner of Scotland and safe from any yoofs or singing supporters.  Amazing ... it's 5.30 in the afternoon and I've not had a drink of anything fizzy ... that's a definite record for this weekend.  I am still on the Mudchute diet though as I've grazed on crisps, nuts and nothing remotely like real food apart from my cornflakes this morning.

Just got back home; a big thank you to all those at mile 17 yesterday, I managed to "high five" a good few of you. Just the adrenaline boost I needed.

Oh and I've just remembered Bear & Iron Swiss Bobby decapitating that jelly baby and lowering it into a bottle of 7 Up on a piece of string
23/04/2012 at 17:51
It was cruelty to Jelly Babies I thought.  Did the owner of the 7 Up still drink it?
23/04/2012 at 17:55
Yes, yes she did!!! She said it was lovely lol

I think I tried to explain why there was a dead headhess jelly baby at the bottom but it was a hard concept to get accross when the person receiving it is (a) knackered & (b) thinks you're mad having never met you in her life before.

I also remember being behind Soupy in the queue for the ice cream van and telling everyone else in the queue not to go near her as she was an escaped lunatic and had been seen shouting at people and muttering at balloons .... she didn't hear me but the rest of the queue kind of melted away from both of us

Lol tp that was classic.

My oh just keeps laughing at my sunburnt face and attempts at talking today!
