Well run, Amandax and Andrew. Great tr!ing FP. You should all be proud of yourselves.
(((Snaily and MC))) sorry you are feeling rough.
Weather has been glorious here today. MS and I went out for lunch and then took SM out for a cuppa.
Chuggy, the weekend was great fun. There were quizzes and games between meals so that we would all be together for the action. There were several arguments and fights at mealtimes (we had out own room for lunch and dinner but I bet the other people in the breakfast room wondered whatever was happening). There were 2 gory 'bodies' - one in the shower and one in the library - the 'police' notified us and we all went look-see. We had an 'incident room' open 24/7 with lots of clues pinned up on boards. Everything there applied to one of the cast but much of it was unrelated to the murders. The really helpful clues were somewhere on the boards, then it was up to us to question the suspects. I was far too 'nice' backing off if someone seemed to get upset or embarrassed . Even when the solution was explained and the clues pointed out to us (the whole group together late on Sunday morning), I don't think I would ever have solved it. The only problem, from my point of view, is that I missed several things because I needed to go and test, but someone filled the gaps for us later.
If anyone gets the chance to do something like this I would urge you to do so, it really was very enjoyable. did I post links to the hotel and muder company yesterday?
Hello and welcome to Andrew, Lobbit and Rebecca. We are a gobby lot and talk about many things other than running. Until you get used to us, just jump right in with your comments and questions - you'll be here for ever if you wait for a suitable lull in conversation
Glad that you're feeling better Coco, this is always a safe place for a rant.
Podds, I'm very relieved that the NV seems fully recovered now.
Sorry to hear about MIL Pippi.
Chuggy, I always think that the sparrowsgrass meal sounds really nice - but I never get round to doing it here.
14th May you say Meldy. I'm always happy to help a friend, I'll see if MS if free that week
Tubs, I love your description of Fling, I can picture his bottom lip wobbling
Glad that you enjoyed your holiday Spence.
That labby is he looks older than 11 months.
We had a great weekend, hotel was lovely and the murder mystery stuff really absorbing. I had no idea whodunnit but that didn't spoil the fun. Would love to do another, maybe with freinds/family. It looks pretty expensive until you realise that the cost covers accommodation, meals (including a cream tea on Saturday) and entertainment. Friday's weather was glorious and yesterday's OK. Torrential rain on the way home today - a huge 'Thank You' to MS for driving.
We were supposed to be going out with bffs for tea tomorrow but they have just been told that R's father is ill, so they will go to see him instead. This follows a total cicumnavigation of the M25 on Friday - taking son back to Cambridge, via Maidstone (Kent) as they wanted to stop off and see F's grandfather who is terminally ill. That gives MS and I time to chill, we are both pretty
Thanks for letting us know about Parddu, Yeo, sad news.
I'm sorry Tubs, that did make me larf , glad that you were able to sort it out.
Chuggy, that's great weightloss, especially as it was not intentional!
Sorry that you had to go in to w*rk Podds, hope that is the last time over the weekend.
Meldy, it sounds as if the house purchase is really coming together. I remember that I cried on my first night in my own flat, it was a case of 'Dear dog, what have I done?'! Had a similar reaction after we got married...
Noo, I meant to comment on your half m PB, it is a truely stonking time!
Anyone seen XB recently?
It's still fine and dry here, but not as nice as it has been. Forcast for weekend is pretty mixed too, it doesn't make it easy to travel light!
Don't know what happened to the post I made yesterday - I suspect it 'timed out'. Fingers crossed for today.
A huge 'Well done' to Jff, MC and Scott! I'm afraid I don't have enough generosity of spirit to watch VLM on the box
Hope that you had a lovely day yesterday Noggy. It is our 30th today - how the heck did that happen?!
It seems that I missed a WAISTer birthday, sorry
Larry, it's great to hear you enjoying your acticvity again, there must have been times when you thought it would never happen.
