Camlo - pool accidents. My step mum used to assist at a school and one of the kids poo'd in the pool, one of the teachers thought it was a brick and asked a kid to dive down and get it, the kid then surfaces, realises what is in her hand and lobs it to the pool side. Chaos broke.
Caro - great news about all those holidays and skiing. It's also nice you have met another lady who understands. I've always found that I want to do so much more when I cant. I had really bad depression years ago and i was totally floored by it, I couldnt get out of bed (it was so bad that I thought i had a really bad virus for weeks and weeks until i found a decent doctor) and i just lay in bed dreaming of going for a bike ride or run. The therapy sessions sound great. Oh and there is no way you are anything close to a bad mummy.
Trendy - welcome/welcome back. Please dont feel intimidated by anyone. If i ever do, i tell myself that there is always someone faster and always someone slower. I go for self improvement.
TT - better late than never. I hope he gets help soon. Poor guy living with a tough situation.
JG - sorry to hear about your mum. I hope she is better and home soon.
Kinsey - hope the lurgy passes.
TB - I have lots of respect for anyone who manages a PhD.
Hoggle - I was actually thinking about you today as I was feeling a little sad at the thought of going back to work in a few weeks, and i didnt feel like this the first time round. There are plenty of reasons but i think a big one is that the first time, I sometimes felt a little lonely with just a baby but with 3 of us (my daughter does 3 full days in nursery so its not like i have them all the time), its more fun.
I ate and drank far too much rubbish at the weekend and have been wanting to carry it on today, arghh. I fall off the wagon so easily. I haven't been too bad today so hopefully I wont look at every shop with a watering mouth, thinking about biscuits/crisps/anything bad. A few days is fine, but i cant let it go on and on as I have a half marathon in a few weeks. My arse wobbles enough at this weight! Whilst out cycling on Thursday, I was called a 'big arsed lady' by some fat twat in a car. Yes, it's true but he was a heart attack waiting to happen! Cheek!
JG - good running but about your mum. It's a tough situation and its bound to cause tensions between family members. I guess all you can do is try and be tolerant with each other. Not easy though.
Caro - hope you the fog is starting to clear for you. Hopefully the taste buds will be back for Dec when you really need them to be ok and you can indulge in everything.
Still waiting to find out if the bank will loan us enough money to keep the flat and still buy the house. The lady who offered on our flat is probably getting annoyed by our evasiveness by now (she offered on Monday). We are both now really set on trying to keep the flat so i hope it works out.
8.5 mile run yesterday. Just over 2 weeks of mat leave left and then its back to work. I am hoping that i can get some more runs in when back at work as its tough now, although i do get every thursday to myself and i do a long bike ride. I will miss that.
I have used the first (3 runs a week) plan before but wanted to put in 4 runs a week. Does anyone have a plan I can use? I cant do more than 4x per week as I need to still do 1 swim and at least 1 cycle per week as I have a 70.3 in June next year, which is 12 weeks after Brighton marathon.
