SO it's Friday is it?

I don't think that these lyrics are Streets Of London, but you can make the tune fit with some effort. Keep the comeback a coming Tom.

Your last rest was 26th November?  Are you planning to have Christmas Day off? !

What:  Probably Nothing

Why: Work is killing me (not literally speaking... I hope)

Lyrics.. No. Again.

Happy Friday.

Lyrics: what LMH says!

What: may walk, may rest!
Why: how the mood takes me! And the weather, which promises to be very wet. And my hospital appointment which will probably decide what treatment I will have.

This evening taking visitor to meet up with some clubmates from the 70s/80s: some still run, all are still active within the club.

14/12/2012 at 07:59


Ale good luck with the hospital appointment. Hope they give you some options.
Tom sounds like a nice dinner you got!

What: may go for a walk
Why: been back to the doc's this morning.  More poking so a little sore.  Feeling much better though.
Lyrics: no idea!

Meant to be raining all day here too though hasn't started yet. Lacrosse Christmas party tonight - all you can eat schnitzel...

Wow, so I bought some furniture 2 months ago and it never arrived...well someone just rang at the door and has given me the money back!  Nice surprise!

Wabo hope the bathroom is fixed soon
Ale Bob Dylan wrote a lot of songs people don't realise he wrote, talented man.

14/12/2012 at 16:10

Hope you have a good plan in place Alehouse.

Enjoy the party emzap - good news about the refund.

Wabo - when do you get to see little Cleo and her mum next?

14/12/2012 at 17:13

LMH: actually far from happy! Spent 3 hours waiting to see the top man, and then a more junior doc came to apologise to say that the top man had had to leave. I had already seen the junior doc before and he didn't add much to what he had said previously. He is a surgeon, and therefore suggests the surgery route; last week the radiotherapist suggested the radiotherapy route, surprise surprise,  so no decision as yet, and it will be down to me to make the choice. The good thing is that he again said there is no great urgency. Will try to speak with people who have had brachytherapy: I know, and know of, some who have had surgery, with a range of success.

Alehouse - a very frustrating afternoon for you, but as you say the positive thing is there's no urgency.

Emzap - I think I recall you posting about the furniture issue at the time. Great outcome. Regarding "lost" Dylan songs, my favourite is "Percy's Song" an epic tale recorded by Fairport Convention on the album "Unhalfbricking". Also on the same album is their version of another Dylan song "Si Tu Dois Partir" which is "If you gotta go, go now" also recorded by Manfred Mann.....which brings us full circle.

Anyway, as usual, I digress. This morning was a very relaxed 6.1M in thoroughly horrible conditions.

I think I need to apologise for another set of obscure lyrics - the singer is a top man and a favourite (but not THE favourite) of BR.

Sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experience Alehouse but I too would take heart from the lack of urgency.

14/12/2012 at 19:48
Evening all,

Been silly busy with work so haven't had a lot of time for anything else, hoping I wake up ok tomorrow to do Parkrun

Have I missed anything?

Hope everyone is ok, and all have a good weekend.
14/12/2012 at 19:58


Thought I'd posted on here this morning ?! Oh well.

Didn't know lyrics then either.

Reading Victoria Pendletons autbiography at moment. Quite a decent read.

Now to catch up.


14/12/2012 at 20:47

What - 8.25km
Why - Still havent change my Garmin back to miles....
