Wow, Podds. You are doing very well dealing with work stuff so constructively. And did you say you're up for iron man again? I agree with Sluggy regarding less work leaves room for more RGT work although those sweet houndie love you for it.
Sue, I love the sound of you being batty Are you being sponsored for your Scarfell jaunt?
M.......... eldy, bats are good fliers but roost in woodpecker holes, loose tree bark and they also roost in the ground.
Sluggy, it is a shame some cats are particularly predatory but it's nature I suppose. How is SB these days?
((((MC))) hope you're feeling better
(((DL)))) hope you're well enough to run again soon
Daffy, what happened to you? Those poor students
Not much doing here. Charidee run and 10 mile race went well. Ma more settled. My neighbour has organised the local talking newspaper for her.
Is it bed time?
Apologies for dropping of the radar. Still having to prize my laptop out of miniyums no 2 grubby mitts
oh DL, I had a good old snigger too at FC's alarm cock. Very alarming indeed to keep being woken by it hy is FC grounded for a month ?
Well iron manned M.....eldy and sherpa Podds. It sounded tough especially for Podds having to drink cocktails and other alcofrolic beverages whilst all m....eldy did was have a gentle dip in the sea, little jaunt on her bike and a pottle along the prom. As for standing on the GPO ? seriously?
Sue what sort of neddy has your family acquired? How did the visit to the poochee rehoming place go? How is HWMBT?
Sluggy, i'm glad that SM seems to be more settled at the moment. Not easy times for BFF and TM. How are their loved ones? I giggled when I pictured you signing at volume and then MS face
Daffy, well done on signing up for the harf mara and for the pb challenge. I think you should terrify your students.
Sorry to hear about the gerbil, MC. Ive not had degus although i had a very long lived chinchilla. Bliddy rodents chew everything. Why not ask DL for one of her mice?
Pippi, that's a pretty interesting after school event. The kids will be disappointed next week if you don't send for the fire brigade.
Welcom Tub - look after those knees. Lots of advice out there on how to look after knees both rolling/stretching/strengthening but essential to build slowly.
Farfar, how lovely you have a new to you campervan and even more lovely that Ned loved it too
good luck with the meeting, podds - remember grow up and learn self control
Life here is busy. No 1 still looking for work. Tomorrow im taking time off work to take him to discuss volunteering with the local hospice. Do you remember all those years ago when the GPo came home with a dead bat and we wondered whether he caught it or found it. Well, my very informative bat walk said that cats are the major predators of bats. Loved the walk saw pipistrelles and soprano pipistrelles and picked up noctule bats on the bat detectors. This weekend is the MIND club run which Im helping organise. only half full and despite me asking no marshal instructions or much at all. Ma not as good. Her eyesight failing and she's worried about losing her independence so I'm a little more involved with hozzie and RNIB at the mo.
Apologies for my absence but I've not been allowed to borrow my laptop back and had to throw a strop teen fashion to resolve the problem.
I'll do you packing for you, M..........eldy. I might deviate from the list a little though with a few spiders and bats up your nightie Sorry to hear the news on your friend Sue. Clearly out of the blue. I like Lady Sue's ethos of living life to the full. Something we should all live by~~~~~~~sue~~~~
Lol at leaving the GPO to the waister lounge Everyone should have a will. I had mine done during wills week and the lovely solicitor did it free and i have the fee directly to the local hospice.
((((sluggy and SM))) of bless. Not a situation that's good for anyone. it does seem odd that something as basic as continence wear should tale so firkin long to obtain. I hope your new place will have enough room for two puddy tats and waister visitors
Well runned MC. Hope your mojo returns soon.
DL, teens are barely understood creatures. Before you know it she'll be nice as pie - teens, they mess you up. Poor student OH its a tough life
Sue, I don't read that mag either. Do you have a link to it ?
Pippi, the wedding at the botanical gardens sounds fab but I thought you and Mr P were already married
When are the intrepid ironers off to wherever it is? How are them poor boys going to manage without their mummies.
I agree that the penalties for poor/dangerous driving are insulting. Sadly it there is little respect or value placed on cyclists lives - certainly if my experience cycling to work is anything to go by.
Westie - hello Loving the Camino reports
An ekiden - whoever asked. Long distance relay. Its japanese. named after the post stage coaches. It was fun and i managed to run reasonably well. Not much to report here. Busy week ahead. Amongst other things I am going on a bat walk on wednesday and they have bat detectors. hope M......eldy isn't in the vicinity or there could be false alarms And if I make it through to Friday its porn star martinis with the running girls and then bridget Jones baby
morning My apologies for my absence *;eaves note on the pitbull's desk*
You teachers who've had the summer off and are now tired will get no sympathy from me. If the holidays were shorter and perhaps more frequent it might be better all round as it would be easier to get back into the routine. Of course I do admire your commitment, dedication and patience during term time
(((sluggy and SM)))) bless. Very difficult to manage SM and the carers. I like the sound of Sue's suggestion - the food labelling - not the weevil thing. ((((BFF and mum)))
Podds, I thought of you when the school uniform thing hit the news. I sniggered to myself I love the idea of you being famous on FB as a pitbull one woman said she'd spent £200 on her two kids trainers... It says much about the parents. We have the same rules enforced for years at the minis failing school from a 'deprived' area. No major problem.
awww, congratulations on your wedding, pippi and on being a super prize winning photographer hope the achilles is on the mend
Go go go, MC. Enjoy the HM
Sue Florida is a fab place for family hols And loved the pics of the shiny new car
Go go go M....eldy. Dont fall in the canal
(((DL's back))) How is FC these days. Did OH go to the foam party?
Daffy, I too have many questions about your disappearing knickers and so many pictures of them 'being flung'
GO go go amandax
Usual stuff here with the odd curve ball thrown in. I always marvel at how people deliberately act in a way which they know is contrary to their legal responsibilities and bring situations entirely on themselves and then flap in the manner of a dying fish when it is brought to their attention and they are asked to correct the situation. Ma is ok. her bathroom is finished. Miniyums are behaving. No 1 is applying for jobs. I think it may be a lengthier process than I imagined. Ive been struggling with my running. Even easy stuff is hard. I am hoping its just the humid/warm weather otherwise a trip to the quacks is on the cards. Today I am running an ekiden. Teams of 5 run the marafun distance in a relay. Teams are put together by the organiser based on their times hopefully ensuring all teams are evenly matched. That means teams are cross club so I only met two of my team yesterday. They are all lovely and its v friendly so fun should be had by all
