Well thing 1 went to school today but thing 2 was off, talk about juggling! Luckily I have such good friends in my neighbours who are invaluable and genuinly love the girls.
And I think we're all good to go for the race on Sunday. It's so much harder organising an aquathlon or tri than a run race when it comes to late entries. My philosophy is that I want to let everyone in, and I don't compromise the experience by having more that 2 swimmers to a lane (with room the swim side by side).
Please get your entries in early.
Jeez family, stop being ill, you selfish buggers!
*insert your own smiley face*
What a week!
D went into work this morning, J then woke up and still wasn't well enough to go to school. I phoned D, D came back from work, I went to work, I then came back from work after sorting shit out so D could go to work (he had dibs on having the most important stuff on taday). And yes, for those who know what he does, he's doing it right now. Another family's life changed forever.
Cole hasn't been for a walk today but he doesn't know yet that we have an 18 mile run with the club tomorrow morning, that'll make up for it. I must remember his paw wax. One benefit of having to be home with thing 2 today was that I managed to get to thing 1's sharing assembly (she was playing the piano in it). A vet friend of mine was there (son in same class), she told me that every time she drives past me and Cole running in the lanes she thinks she's run him over. Basically in the really tight lanes I've taught him to throw himself in the hedge and play dead (I've mentioned this before). She looks in the rear view mirror and has to remind herself that he does that and she hasn't caught him with her back wheel.
I told her that he takes his job very seriously.
19 miles run. I started off with the really whizzy guys from the club, but my Garmin was showing 6.52 at one point, I kept with them until the 9 mile point and then Cole and I eased up a bit. I was planning to slow a bit and hope the next group caught me up, but there was absolutely no sign of them so me and Cole ran the last 10 on our ownsome and we only got a little bit lost! Thanks SWRR for getting me out of bed
Swim waves, results slips, numbers all sorted. Just printing copies of the master sheet and other stuff. I'm relaxing a bit now I'm getting to the point of everything being done...
Biodegradable luminous road paint acquired, and my daughters have been fab helping with stuff and D is happy as the rugby is on. There will be a Homer Simpson arse groove in our sofa when he finally leaves it. He wouldn't even get up to bring me a cup of tea in the bath. He LOVES watching the rugby, I guess we're a rugby family, I really enjoy it too. The kids have yet to be converted, Ella groans loudly as soon as D mentions it's on the tv. But she's enjoyed the matches we've actually gone to watch.
If you organise races, you get to the point where you say to yourself, "Why the f am I doing this!" I think people would be lying if they said they didn't.
And you know what, when you see all the nervous faces at the beginning of the race change to big smiles on crossing the finish line, you know why you do it.
Cheesy I know but actually so true. Oh and my club are fab, I've said it before and I'll say it again and again.
Best bit of today was a little old lady insisting on making one of our road marshalls a cup of tea as he was standing outside her house. She thought he was doing his community service and asked him how he'd broken the law. Mental note to get less dodgy looking marshalls
And yes I am still aware there's a cat's arse at the top of this page.
Back to work for a rest!
They do say that if the cat had been facing the other way Percy Shaw would have invented the pencil sharpener
Quite, many years ago my stepfather used to have a book called '101 uses for a dead cat'
It was pretty funny.
I love Stephen Fry's 'weather in my head' analogy.
I had the most hideous horrible nightmares last night, full of detail and pretty fucked up. HOWEVER, I think I've got to the bottom of it, it's not my tortured soul hamming it up on some virtual stage. I was just so desperate for a piss that I was trying to wake myself up!
Never underestimate the power of the bladder.
So my neighbour and good friend just walked into my house...
"Muppets on toast with knobs on, this place smells funny"
"Hello to you too, what does it smell of?"
"I've just got home blame everyone else, the dog especially"
"Are they nippy chippying?"
(Just for the record no weed here, call off the flashmob)
Chocolate in chilli, who knew? Thank you hairy bikers, just don't drop any pubic hair in it.
I'm going to try it in my next chilli.
But of course chilli chocolate has been around for a while. D'oh Kate, you didn't make the connection...
It's a big fail at watching middle class telly stuff.
And we still haven't turned the page from the feline arse... Maybe it is time to give up on here? Not that I mind looking at my girlfriend in that particular pose.
Hi KK, spent a while lurking here, been out of running for a couple of years, decided that since I will hit the half century this year I'm going to do a short tri. Ilfracombe here I come in Sept. All I need to do is learn how to swim when I can't stand up and touch the bottom (or get a very long snorkel), then get the road bike out from its 5 year hibernation and see if I can remember how to ride it, and last see if I can run after doing all of the above!I must be mad - but it sounds like fun!
You'll have a ball! At our aquathlon last weekend I was doing the race briefing so saw everyone poolside, so many new people and SO nervous! But once they'd finished so many people said how much they loved it. I also had a phone call from a lady last week who has just moved down here and wants to join the club but she's worried that she's not a good enough swimmer, after I explained how non existant my swimming used to be, she felt much better!
Hey WS, didn't you used to post here years ago, I remember you.
Actually we've met...
