Hey Nuro, big hugs from me too ((())) hope you can work through it. Might want to change your picture though?? Fingers crossed it's nothing sinister but the waiting will feel like forever. Keep us posted. xx
Oh didn't realise it was SPOTY! Damn... Glad Jo seems to have got a place at least.
Yes Bolsover was chilly and pretty gusty in places but thankfully dry and not icy! I did 57:19 so about half a minute outside my pb, but I have gained a few pounds over these last few weeks with looking after my mum, Christmas treats and working too much so I can't exercise, so I'm pretty happy! Nice long sleeved top to take home too, and I bought myself some half price Saucony trainers afterwards (£42.50, bargain!)
Hoggle - I so know what you are feeling right now, even without the Christmas Day element thrown in! I could have throttled anyone daring to ask the "any news" question by the end with Sophie - my MIL took to emailing EVERY DAY to ask me ! Glad you've come to a decision though, and it sounds like the best idea. Que sera sera and all that!
Good luck PG3! I'm running Bolsover 10k tomorrow morning and it's going to be chilly brr...maybe it'll make me run faster! Been eating early Christmas rubbish and not exercising enough, so we'll see.
Caro - hugs to you, sounds horrible, never mind hubby being away and 2 small children to look after. You deserve those Eric cuddles . Hope his temperature stays down. Nicky is ridiculously Mummy-orientated at the moment, it's cute but drives me nuts at times!
TT - boo to the tummy bug, well done on managing the school run even when you feel so rubbish. When I have tummy bugs I can't get out of bed !
Sorry to anyone I've missed. I'm off to bed in a minute, too many late nights recently! I was an elf at the Christmas fair yesterday and then attempted to count up the takings and have miscalculated somewhere, but we seem to have made around £1400!
Wise words from TT and big big hugs to TB ((())) I hope you can talk it through and begin to work it out. The fact that he has told you and not just gone off and had an affair speaks volumes I hope. Keep us posted. xx
Not been on for a while as had to go down to pick mum up from hospital on Sunday, finally, and stayed with her till Wed. Was v tough being away from my family - not been away for the kids for that long ever . My mum really appreciated it though so it was worth it. She's totally convinced she will never be rid of skin cancer, and that it can spread through your blood so removing lymph nodes won't necessarily stop it. Tried to be positive and encourage her to ring someone like Macmillan, but I know she won't. She just doesn't "do" talking.
Did I mention I got a job? Can't remember if I did so won't bore you all with repetition just in case! Went in and met everyone yesterday and they all seem lovely and very keen on going for coffee and drinking wine .
All this has meant I've been lacking on the exercise front recently and I am starting to feel a little porky, so back on the healthy eating! I did manage a short run at my mum's but it's amazing how little time you have when you have to split your time around your mum's and granny's routines!
Well done on the parkrun Caro! Do specialist bras come in attractive styles at all or are they all more like nursing bras? Would be nice if you had some choice of design. A friend of mine has a prosthesis and you would never know. Enjoy the shopping
Sounds fun TT - I'm intrigued by the deep fat fried turkey, it sounds far nicer than I thought it would be!
