oh Jude - I had missed your post about your day! How awful of the headteacher - not everything is preventable and sometimes kids hurt each other, that is life! And very mean of the other kids to call your daughter those names. I guess there is still a bad attitude to western women amongst some of the traditional families there (there was against British women when I was in Spain and the culture there isn't even that different!!)
oh by eck, that will be tough.
Oh Byeck, another two weeks of worry and indecision. Sending you all hugs.
Jude - really hope your day is better.
My Dad was a soldier and served primary in Belfast in the early 70's. He left just before I was born and became an ambulance man, but my whole childhood he was very much a soldier. A great dad and adventurous even when he became disabled, but the army mentallity and experience played a huge role in our family. Most for good, but some for worse.
Have just finished my second essay! Hurrah! Need to go for a 10 miles run but I haven't eaten for 6 hours so probably not a good idea just now.... will see about it later tonight after Smidge's birthday tea.
byeck- Hope all goes well and Moo is ok.
Jude-That is terrible as MC says I suspect it is hard being a Western woman in Turkey at times. I don't blame hubby going to the school.
Well I am away for the weekend so won't be posting from tomorrow until Monday so while the cats away....
Please to say that I have done my longest ever run of 16.9 with the lady from my club who overtakes me in races....managed it in 2.25 with mile 16 in 7.52 so can now enjoy the weekend and feel satisfied.
Golly it has been busy with news on here.
First of all Jude thats a shame about your horrible day at school and then topped off byb hearing about your girl being bullied...I hope she is ok and you..sending you lots of hugs.
Chilli..such a shame about the disco...my 1st disco was when I was 12...I think...Younf Franny junior went when he was alot younger as that is percieved the norm now...he never went and danced though...lol..more interested in the tuck shop and running around...when it cameto big school he had quite frankly had enough of discos as did the rest of their year and they didn't want any despite being offered.
MC...hope you get the right results about your knee....worrying times though I suspect.
By'eck...Aw poor Moo but you know I think a feeding tube won't be a bad idea as it will take the stress away from you ensuring he is eating enough calories to maintain his weight..This way he will be able to enjoy the food that you give him and in my experience this always works bettter in the long run...Big hugs
AF...enjoy your weekend away and well done on your 16.9 mile run and last mile at 7.52m/m I would be dead if i did that after 15 odd miles LOL you are gonna be great at the marathon.
Well i have did my 1st double figure run of the year 12.5 miles and it was such a lovely day to be out Before my run though had a Chico walk for 1 hr and after run/lunch it was another Chico walk for another hour.( been out on my feet for 4hrs in total)..phew...I am gonna put me feet up now I think and have a nice cup of tea..Anyone want to join me??????
Enjoy the birthday tea Chilli and hope you get out your run.
Hello to Ecky,Louise,RR,Mr Byeck and Mr Chilli,Rocker,Tom,Matt and
Deejay...how are things going with you at the moment..been thinking of you
Franny-Well done on your 12.5 miler & Chico walk. What's with You can be in charge for leading everyone astary in CRAC towers while I am away.
by eck , thats a shame to hear about Moo needing a tube but theres plus and minus i guess. as franny says itll take the worry away and ease the pressure for a while. itll get his hydration and nutrional needs up to a required level and make him feel better too. BUT , the fact still remains thats it is a temporary measure and they dont seem to be finding an answer that provides you and Moo with long term help. his development is most likely hampered yes as his feeding issues are distracting not only him but you from doing 'normal' things that you wsould do with a toddler.
franny sis, aw loved your V day cards , especially from lickle Chico!
well done on your 12 miles, i did a short 6 mile yesterday in my nooo inov8s. gawd me bum aches today!- or rather my buttocks ache lol
Thanks for the comments. I am a bit surprised she is being bullied as she is considered quite cool by her friends. She changed classes this year though so she is mixing with new people. (In Turkey children stay in the same class for 5 years and usually with the same teacher as well. So they all get very close. Up until now she hasn't had any problems.) Anyway, she is at swimming at the moment so I don't know how today went yet.
Well done on your excellent runs AF, Franny and Loula and I hope you get a run Chili.
By'eck - I don't know what to say really as I know nothing about such things but I realise it must be so hard and frustrating for you. Thinking of you and hoping for a solution. xx I'm sure his happy dance was very sweet.
Off out to a Foreigners in Bursa meeting tonight. Feeling very decadent Better enjoy myself while I can as I have to go to school on SUNDAY for a brunch with parents. Gosh, what fun that will be. (Can you hear the sarcasm?) Plus - What parents want to go to school on Sunday?
Oh well, BFNx
Maybe they do but we have been instructed to eat beforehand and circulate...
blimey Jude, school on Sunday, what a pain!
AF - well done on your run, you will be fab in the marathon. Enjoy your weekend away
Franny - well done on yoru run and walks.
I turboed this morning and went to the gym after school to walk on the treadmill. Now, I know I can walk outside, but it is early days, and if my knee starts hurting I can just get off the treadmill, bit different if I am stuck a couple of miles from home. Did half an hour, and threw in a few little 1 min runs. Felt fine so may do the same tomorrow.
by eck - such hard decisions to make about moo.
Well. all plans on going to the gym today have been scuppered. My glutes are well and truly knackered after yesterday's football. That was a really tough workout. Sunday next gym session for me. Perhaps more weights orientated, and perhaps a 3k run.
Well done Franny and AF - great runs.
Minnie Mouse cake went down very well. Pink with white spots to match S midgies new Minnie Mouse dress. With black ears and pink bow on top.
happy birthday to smidge
