Hoggle - well done to M on her biking! Better than me
Deep fried turkey, hmmm! Definitely worse than deep fried Mars bars...
Oh my, I have a really funny poo story for you, Camlo! I might have posted at the time but I can't remember. We were on holiday in Torquay last summer. Ben had taken JP in the pool while I sat down on a sun lounger on the grass nearby. All was peaceful until the distressed shouts of a small boy - 'MUMMY! I REALLY NEED A POO!' Trying my best to calm him down and tell him that he was fine and we could go to the toilet, he continues, 'But it's coming out!' I assured him that it wasn't...but it was - all down his legs and on the grass. All of this was in full view of several other guests. Ben got the job of hosing down the child back in the room while I very casually cleaned up the poo using a carrier bag that was holding my knitting (not after that, it wasn't!!).
Yay Trendy So good to 'see' you on here. Loving the positivity! I too have been doing far too much lurking and not posting but I'm back now And you have my utmost respect doing a marathon like that! Superwoman!!
PG - how very rude! Why people do things like that is beyond me and makes me very cross.
Hoggle - glad M is better now. Loved the pic you put on FB before - she is gorgeous
Have had a busy day editing (when G was asleep). One article done - probably the one that will be my favourite. Thoroughly enjoyed it, even if my brain aches now!
TT - great news that your brother has been to see someone. Hopefully now he can get the right support to help him. Going to the docs is always the hardest part, I think!
JG - hope your mum is better soon Well done on the racing though - speedy!
Kinsey - I fancy learning to crochet but I'm quite daunted by it! I enjoy knitting when I have the time/inclination! I did loads when I was pregnant but I've got a scarf I still haven't finished since just before Giovanna was born. I should finish it really as it is to go with a hat. Is it easy enough or is it as complicated as it seems?!
Legs feeling pretty tired today on a six miler so think I need an easy day tomorrow. Or maybe a rest day! What's one of those, I hear you all say
Sent my PhD off to the publisher today They really liked the sample so hopefully they'll like the whole thing. I've also got a little project (hmm, well, actually quite big!) editing a collection of articles - it's really good because that'll be another book with my name on. Have decided to try to raise my research profile while G is little and I can then apply for academic posts once she is in school. Ben is so wrapped up in his work that I need something else apart from the kids to focus on - but that's another (very long and boring) story!
Hugs TT ((())) Hope you don't have to wait too long for your referral. And boo to not running. Just boo. If you did a teensy bit in your lovely new trainers though?
Hope the throat is better, CM
LOL at the bras, JG! And fab news on the job - it sounds great. Every now and again I get a little pang to go back to work (not teaching though) but then I change my mind! I think something part-time would suit within the next couple of years. I don't think there will be any more babies so it would be good to have something once G goes to school (can't believe I said that!!). I'm currently in negotiations with a publisher about my PhD so that's keeping my mind occupied. They loved the proposal and sample chapter so have now got to send the whole thing. Fingers crossed!
17 miles done this morning and I am now pooped. Good job it's the party for G tomorrow as it means we have loads of food in the house...Hope I manage to save some!
