Evening. I did a post this morning, didn't quite finish it and got on with the day. Came back to realise it was still sat there .
Anyway, well done indeedy Spence. Do you like running?
Pippi, I think I missed something, what is Mr P going in hozzie for? I googled the Liverpool Echo for storm pictures as I couldn't get your link to work. It's quite ironic that a pirate ship sailed away in a storm!
How many cakes do you make Chuggy? I know it's huge amounts.
Well walked, runned, cycled etc to everyone else.
I've done a bit of shopping, dyed a basket liner, moved approx a ton of chopped wood for the wood burner and made my Christmas cakes. I am so late in making mine this year. I'm also stressing about presents this year. I am completely out of ideas for various people, chiefly my two stepsons and one of their partners.
Victorian newspapers Pippi? By the delivery boy is late around your area!
Well runned XB and all before 8.30am too! Wow!
Happy volunteering Spence. Hope you don't get too cold. Perhaps you could support the runners by doing star jumps or cartwheels to keep yourself warm. I assume you get a pudding at the end of the 10 miler. As I don't like pudding it's probably better for me to get one for OH care of Mr Asda. I'm doing cycling santas next Saturday though.
Just back from two 'do's', a retirement of an ex-colleague and a Christmas party for the charity I do the cycle rides for. I've really enjoyed myself. Loads of laughs at the first and loads of dancing at the second.
Meldy, that doesn't sound very nice for Mr Murph. Hope it sorts itself out without intervention from V-E-T!
I agree with most of what has been said on here especially what Elizabeth Dix 4 says.
I have two dogs who are always on a lead around people/other dogs. The larger of my two dogs is a German Shepherd cross and was a rescue dog.
Last year I was walking them near to a large bakery when the staff were coming out. There was a man stood right in the middle of the pathway talking on his phone so I reeled them in so neither of their leads were more than 4 inches from my hand. I diverted my line of walking towards the wall to avoid the man. A female runner came up behind me without saying anything and tried to get between the dog and the wall! He jumped up and scratched her leg and she started throwing abuse at me saying he had bitten her. I apologised but said she should slow down and give dogs a wide berth when running.
When I am out running I do this and if I am running up behind a woman on her own I usually let her know I am not a threat by shouting a greeting or something so that I don't startle her.
Anyway, having said all that, I do sincerely hope you can feel like you can get out there and enjoy yourself again. Look at it from a different perspective, even if you do see her again she is unlikely to be able to run fast enough to catch you. Cross the road and ignore her.
