relatives are very thankful which is nice for a change!!! It's not often in nursing these days that you are appreciated!!!
still trying to get out cycling as much as possible & running when I can fit it in but that's not very often. Not been swimming for a while. Last did an open water swim about a month ago and brrrrrrrrrrr it was cold!!!!!!! I have now done about 2200 miles biking, running & few miles swimming this year!!! This month I am doing a challenge of 100 sit ups, 100 press ups & 100 squats every day! I would have a great six pack if I kept my hands out of the biscuit tin & sweetie cupboard!!!!! Hahahahahaha but then life would be boring eeh.
Have entered into the "strathpuffer" agin middle of Jan. Am obviously slightly deranged in the head. Why would I do that again??!!!!!!
Anyway betta go as said I would get M a snack ages ago!!! She fell asleep in the bike trailer at half nine when I was out for a wee bike/ run with my friend. We did 6 miles & took turns running / cycling with the trailer, was good fun & we had a good gossip!
M is tired as keeps waking up several times in the night because of " monsters" .
Ah hello all. Long time since I've been on the runners world forum. So I have just skimmed the last couple of pages so probably missed loads. But as Karen says I kinda keep up with some of your life's via FB!!!!
huge congratulations to TB. Ahhhhhhhh she looks so adorable & lovely name. Enjoy those fab newborn snuggles.
sorry to hear there black clouds around. I hope they vanish soon. Hugs to Karen for FIL, very sad for you all & I guess the girls will all deal with it differently. When we lost 1 Aunty & 3 uncles in the last couple of years Ruby just laughed(6 at the time) and would wander around saying stupid things that I found quite hard. When my friend died 5 years ago ( aged 36) I was vy upset but they were all too young to understand. hubby was very unsupportive. Anyway must stop waffling.
im worried as we haven't ordered any Santa presents yet, yikes!
still enjoying my new job although already been there 6 months. Some lovely girls, a good team that on the whole work well together. It's manic some days & the patients can be pretty sick but you do feel that you are helping & mostly patients and
Ah the joys of toddlers Hoggle, right monkies eh. Defo wait until properly ready to potty train, waist of time & effort if not ready in my opinion.
lotte- u look fab & oh my your life sounds chaos!!!
wetsuits are the most unforgiving things ever, worse than running gear. I look like an elephant I really do. Horrible.
huge shock( not!) usual rejection letter from London yet again.
Met some ladies today( wife's of some of the men in the cycle club) for a ride. Was fab. We did 12.2 miles then sat on one of the ladies decking as it was sunny and had coffee, cake & chat. Was lovely. Mostly forest tracks but some single track stuff also. Couple of them pretty fast n experienced but we went an easy pace so grand although totally knackered tonight!
Oh I would have both EF!!!! I would just explain that saying that word is not allowed & explain why & give a consequence if she says it again. It's difficult though.
R comes out of her room every night & comes up & down the stairs several times for different things. A drink, a waffle, the toilet ( has an en suite!) can't sleep, etc etc. normally still awake 1.5 hrs later. So tonight I warned her that if she came downstairs tonight I would take her diary/ notebook of her. Told her did she understand what I had just said & made her repeat it back to me. Anyway so far so good, she is still in her room!
Hmmmmmmmm Vixo, I"m no help as I can't even run a sub 2 hr half. Think my best time is about 2.06. Slow as a snail I am & I'm certainly not getting any faster at the moment as only running 10-15 miles a week as biking & trying to swim when I can but that's not very often due to living far away from the stinky swimming pool!!! I don't like the swim pool now since OW swimming, so noisy & think of all the germs, gross! Dying to go for a swim in the loch bout need to phone my friend to try n organise it but its always a bit of a mission!
Brookie hope your move goes well & remember just to direct the boxes and not lift them!!!! U can be the tea maker!!!
tatty- why do people feel the need to say that? It's so bloody annoying isn't it, grrrrrrrrr. Try to ignore the silly comments. It's a baby in there remember not fat!
camlo- hope the antibiotics are helping & wow to maybe doing masters. What's that in then???
JT - I really don't envy your teaching job at the mo, poor thing, sounds horrendous
boo to all the black clouds around at the mo, hope u escape them a bit soon. Big hugs to those that need them (((((()))))) x
Eggs on the boil at the mo to make my salad for work tomorrow. Made soup earlier and it's the stick to your ribs kind, yummy. So will take some of that to work tomorrow and so will hubby I'm sure! Did 3.6 mile cycle with M in trailer this morning & then 4 miles on treadmill & 11 mins of high intensity exercises. Have charged my bike lights to do my first dark MTB ride of the autumn tonight.
