Thanks guys. You are all very kind and I will pass on your good wishes. She's the neatest and tidiest baby I've ever seen - bar none.We went visiting yesterday to take Emilia's birth day (literally) present and one way and another we've been very busy. I started a family tradition of giving our new born babies a present, something that can be put away until they are grown up, on the grounds that we all get only one real birthday and it has to be properly marked. All other birthdays are anniversaries.JJ
Tracey Thanks No Billericay for me. Work Sundays now. Had last sunday off as already pre-booked. Next one will be Hyde park NYD and any parkruns/serpies when i can

One of them days when you eel tired you think a short run but feel ok once you start so you make it longer
ImpeyKeep up those 400s. They look good and will bring real benefits.MickI hope there are one or two of my genes in there somewhere. She will probably be 6' and 14 stones.JJ
Went to town earlier today and on my way back was passed
(twice) by a truck with one of them cargo containers on its trailer What was in it i wondered as it had the letters AWS on it
JJ - a very lucky girl to have a grandad so thoughtful.
Columba - didn't do the 5km, thought I just might tip myself over the edge, so did a very easy 5km with Mae. Had a pretty lazy day really.
JJ,I sure she would thank you for those genes. She will just get the good stuff, your charming wit and powerful intellect.
I gave my feet a rest today with 20 mins on the spinner and 5k of rowing, all washed down with a hour of stretching and core.
I had a small victory today, I got a parking ticket cancelled.
JJ - "neatest and tidiest baby" - I know just what you mean. My middle one was like that. Even the paediatrician commented on it.
Mick - what did you have to do, to get the parking ticket cancelled?
Pammie - you feel tired, think a short run, but then feel better when you get going. Nearly all my runs are like that.
Out with the running club this evening. Warm-up, then two lots of circuits around town (4 times round for the fast ones, 3 times for most of the others, 2 times for me and one other, plus a little bit extra while waiting for the 4x and3x to get back) Total 5.25 miles. Dark by the time we'd finished.
Brother has come to visit. Wine has been drunk. And will continue to be drunk for the duration of his stay. Don't like to drink alone, but visitors are an excellent excuse.
MickThe genes are more likely to be Levi 501s.Great victory over the parking ticket bureaucracy. Is that a Canadian record?ColumbaDo you have the benefit of street lights on the town circuit. If not, a head torch works quite well.JJ
Columba,It was fairly straight forward. I had to attend the Ontario Provincial Court and ask for a review with one of the prosecutors and explained my case.The No Parking signs were ambiguous so I just showed him a picture and explained why I thought they were confusing. He agreed and cancelled my ticket.Here is the pic.
I had parked outside my son's flat on a Saturday morning and the signs clearly show I can apart from the tow zone sign. It seems that that sign was added recently and was in the wrong place.
JJ,Beating parking tickets is very rare here. Everybody laughed when I said I was going to dispute it.

Mick6 - Extrapolation is unreliable, sometimes it tells downright porkies.
Well done on getting the parking fine cancelled. You did better than I did a few months back when I was fined for parking in a bay that had been cancelled but the markings hadn't been erased properly. I disputed it but that was quashed. The irony was that it was a bay that had been marked so you had to put the car half on the footpath as the road was narrow, but if I had ignored that and just parked wholly in the road alongside the kerb, there would have been no problem even though I would have practically blocked the road. I took photographs but they wouldn't have it that there was any ambiguity.
aws,I hope you are right, if the thread continues long enough we will find out.I think you should have worn a wig to the interview as they probably thought you were a skinhead looking for bother.

Aws - well that was unfortunate about the parking ticket. I once disputed one, - my son had parked the car, but I was the registered keeper so they came to me after failing to extort money from him. It was during that very bad winter of a couple of years ago, - the road to his usual parking place was impassable because of snow and ice, no signs visible and the yellow lines on the road completely hidden by frozen snow. I pointed all this out (with dates) and to my surprise they cancelled the fine.

Mick6 - What interview? I was just told "no dice" and that was the end of the matter. It would have been more expensive to pursue it further.
