Fractured pelivis and a small bleed on the brain. Guess he's going to figure that cycling back from a beer festival is not such a good idea.
Ran without Cole today, only a short one. I leave the kids to go to a neighbour if they have any problems, they're old enough sensibile enough and where we live is safe enough to do that.
However, came back to a job car parked outside, they'd called D from work because Cole was literally howling with pain.
I think the nerve catches him at times and it must be excruciatingly painful, I hate him being in pain, just as I hate the kids being in pain.
He's been better since but still a very down dog.
We're having a home cinema afternoon, just watched The Nativity it's hilarious!!
I've got surfing injuries, they had a surf simulator at the party last night and being slightly competitive I tried to beat it by lying down and holding on for dear life, several times. They ramped it up full max and each time I ended up being flung about 6ft in the air. Slightly sore ribs this morning, but all very entertaining.
Just got an update from my mate, fractured pelvis and a fracture going into the pelvis (couldn't even repeat the name of it), face a mess, teeth lost... but alive.
Can't remember a thing about it and very confused. She's relieved and livid with him as she offered to pick him up.
I remember D being really cross with me on the only time I cycled arsed. Although, we don't think that he was that arsed last night and it was the driver's fault. But I have no idea, just glad it wasn't worse.
My assistant phoned in sick today so a really busy day, but sitting down busy and I hate sitting down all day. Came straight home and went for a run.
Our office seems to magic up cakes and chocolates on a regular basis, our production of sweet stuff is very productive.
There's a friggin nutter on BBC1 at the moment (local SW programme). Basically he is ex-services with leg injuries and he's designing an mountain bike for people who can't peddle.
And him testing the prototype was amazing, and some pretty big wipeouts that didn't phase him one bit.
I think people like that are great, he still needs that adrenalin rush.
Amby gets it spot on for me yet again.
Managed a 10 mile run in my lunch hour today and it felt good! (It was a 1 hour 20 lunch hour, poetic licence and all that).
I ran down to Torquay and watched the waves crashing against the sea wall, I love the power of the sea. From a very young age I decided that I wanted to live by the coast and live on a farm, ticked both boxes. Oh and I didn't have an invisible friend when I was a kid, I had an invisible dog and it was a collie!
I wanted to fuck up everyone's NYR today (and cheer people up) so I bought a selection of goodies from Sainsburys on my way to work. Try the caramel puffed rice doobry thingies, they're gorgeous!
Cole has just been given the all clear to run again. No ball throwing for 3 weeks, I'll clarify, the tennis ball as he has none to wang.
What about people who ran along the "porn"?
It's D's birthday, I have bought him a 3D Spiderman cake!
Um, um, I mean I have MADE him a 3D Spiderman cake and crafted a bit of packaging to go around it.
Because it's a very cool cake...
Do they return the saucepans?
Is it SO wrong to be bored by the durge in here now? I've just answered a new (pretty illiterate thread) with a play on the illiteracy. BUT I just feel that we're losing interest here because you have to be super NICE and super TOUCHY FEELY and EVERYONE is SPECIAL and CAN DO.
It's never been my motivation for posting on this site.
I DRAMATICALLY SHOUTED in places there, and it FELT good, for those that absorb CAPITAL letters like a shot to the soul.
And also the rather bizarre locking of the 2013 kit thread hasn't helped. Jeez, just get a bit of conversation happening and let people have their opinions. We're grown adults (except for the really short people like Debbo), stop running to RW Towers, because you know I won't... It's really petty.
My question is, are people really so dependant on the Internet for their 'persona', 'self esteem' etc...
That on a really gentle and friendly forum, they are so incensed that they have to protect their projected 'identity' by running to RW Towers and complaining? It's never been in our history to do that, not at all.
Yet another reason why regulars are leaving here in spades.
Yes, yes, I was in 'rant about things that aren't really important mode' last night, it's a sign that my stress levels are rising about things that are more important.
At least I realise that, I just have to keep my head down (impossible) and work through the busy times.
Good news is that I get to flexi off early to pick the kids up from school, if the traffic is good I'll even get to see the tail end of J's free assembly.
Mate's birthday tonight, so she's coming round for drinkies, twinkies and thinkies.
*Bows low, exits stage left, ducks the tomatoes, cabbages and random toaster*
Swim waves for the first race in the series almost completed (weight off mind).
And a good end to the working week, I managed to get off early and get to free assembly and pick my girls up from school. Then I took the de-benched Coleman for a run, a really cold and wet run... But having not run for over a week, he was tail up and literally pulling me round.
