Ha ha, Cole went nose to nose with one of the cows this morning, and it got out its huge tongue and did a big slurpy lick across his face.
There's a lot of people down with a nasty stomach flu bug, I've had it twice and OH now has it too - I know just what you mean about being hungry but not able to eat, I don't know what to eat that won't set me off again. OH only has it at the lower end, unfortunately I'm hurling for England as well. Still on the brighter side I'm losing weight!
I had a bout of something earlier in the year. Ended up with me feeling like I was going to throw up, and was ravenous for about a week.
Sorry to hear that Iw, whenever I throw up I have to have a needle in my thigh to stop it. Cat, luckily I don't feel sick but have spent a lot of time on the toilet in the last couple of weeks, including today.
And yeah I'm losing weight, which I really don't want despite eating much more than normal. I have been here before and I think it's just related to my crap immune system.
D wants me to go to the GP, but I can't see what they can do. My gastroenterologist always says to me that he never worries about me unless I stop running. Pretty good bench mark in my book
I'm not good at sitting on my arse in an office all day.
I'm going to try sitting on someone else's.
Toilet trips today = zero, but it is early.
I'm really NOT going to find someone who wants to swap behinds am I? How on earth do I put a positive spin on mine?
'GSOH, runs fast'
Spoke too soon!
I didn't speak too soon! Good bum day.
I will stop inflicting my bowels on people now.
There's a full time job come up at work that I want but I only want it part time. Shall I invent the concept of condensed work?
Or I need to be able to manipulate time, best Google 'how to stretch time within time without affecting time'
Was going to run but can't be arsed (sorry, bum reference, I need to wean myself off them).
Can you not do telework at home for half the time on a laptop?
Decision time, it's a huge committment to go back to full time hours with our circumstances.
Good job I'm not training for IM
I'm so glad it's Friday, another busy week done. My friend has just come over and asked me to find out if you can still smoke weed in Amsterdam.
Spent my whole run today thinking about this friggin job situation. I've got to sit down tomorrow and work out stuff.
Also our chair of governors is stepping down. I'm vice chair but I'm not going to step up, there is too much going on here.
I think I've outdone myself and triple booked Thursday.
Now if just 2 people would give me their Thursday, problem sorted.
You can have Monday in return.
KK the next challenge is to cycle JOGLE in 2013, then swim the Bosporus, maybe cycle across the USA? Well you did ask! (Might throw another IM in there yet) Also tempted to go back to ultra running but then I went and ran my fastest 10K for two years on Saturday so tempted to go pot hunting in the soon to be new age group.... decisions decisions,
Hope you sort your employment stuff out
Great challenges Dave! And congrats on the 10k.
KK, the word here is that Dutch citizens are still allowed to consort with Mary Jane but foreigners are not.
Aha, this is what we thought it might be, my friend is a 1/4 Dutch so we told her she can have 1/4 of a spliff
Well I woke up at 4, had breakfast, went back to bed but was up and out the door running with Cole at just past 6. Dark, foggy and raining so as well as my head torch I had to find something for Cole, turns out a flashing LED armband is Cole collar sized! I wouldn't normally but there are zero street lights anywhere near my house.
Of course running in the dark brought out neurocollie... 'Fuck, the Tardis' (lit phonebox), 'fuck an alien' (plasic bag).
Good run, followed by a long day in work then straight to the Governors meeting. I knew what would happen, when the Chair stood down everyone looked at me. By the end of the meeting I conceeded that I would seriously consider it if I didn't get the job... I knew I was going to be the obvious choice, and I feel guilty because I know that if I had time to sink my teeth into it, I could lead it all strongly. But I have spread myself so thinly with all this, the work 'occasional table' (someone will get that one) and all the race organisation stuff, D's shifts and stress of OU Degree on top of that.
The whole fucking job situation, I don't know if I want it or not.
However, there will be people here ho remember how wound up I got about getting lost on the Parrot Relay last year and letting the team down... To the point of Google Earth, overlaying GPS movements and much more...
Well all this stuff means that I haven't got a fucking clue about where I'm running on Sat, but that's a Google Earth panic for Friday evening.
Sorry I'm tired.
'Eats shoots and leaves.'
'Fuck, an alien'
I know dogs aren't fussy but I would like to point out that Cole has better taste than a plastic bag. My calf for example.
