Happy Birthday JFF. Which big one is it? 30? You do sound like you need some R & R now though.
Poor Murph, he sounds like he is going through it at the moment. I don't envy the cost of treatment though! That poor GPO sounds like he is really hard done to, being out in the rain and having to snuggle onto a sofa alone to get warm and dry!!! I'm amazed he hasn't left home.
I feel for those who are paying out for cars that are playing up. They are brilliant when they are working okay but painful when they go wrong. I'm stunned that mine went through the mot with just two wiper blades and a couple of bulbs to deal with.
Has anyone done or heard of the River Dart 10k SWIM? A friend entered but due to a severe last minute lack of confidence he pulled out. I have read someone's blog regarding it online and I quite fancy doing it next year.
Well marshalled Podds. Sounds like it was amazing to watch those little 'uns.
Well, the pom pomming and vibes definitely worked for me smashed my GNR PB by nearly 10 minutes at GNR - 2.15.04. Took me 2 and a half hours to drive out of South Shields and through Sunderland to get back to a main road though!
Evening. Well done to park runners and JWW runners. Spence you are an amazing runner and one bad run in a long while isn't bad at all. 1.48 for a 10 miler sounds positively speedy to me.
Yums, that outing sounded lovely. There's something still magical about seeing animals in nature rather than in man made habitats.
Meldy, hope the madness of kitchen refitting is starting to look like it is ending.
I've been wandering around Newcastle today, watching a (very little) bit of the athletics and a bit of the Junior North Run and going to the pasta party. GNR tomorrow - hope the weather is better than today has been. OH had another bad dizzy spell and went back to the car. He was tested for calcium in the ears on Friday but the dr thinks he is clear of that. He mentioned the menieres but was kind of dismissed on it even though I told him to tell them that a Dragon and Slug suggested it may be so!
Good to hear that things are settling with your family Sue. Thank you for telling me about Meniere's I have just looked up the symptoms and quite a lot of them do indeed sound very familiar. I have asked him to mention it to the dr on his next visit. He has been 'out of it' most of the day. On the other hand the dawgies and I had a lovely 6 mile walk.
Pippi that hotel sounds delightful. I'm surprised you didn't go for the £2k champers though (did you think it was a bit cheap?)
Podds, did you know that triathlete that died? I heard vaguely about it on the radio. What happened? Did he have a heart attack?Hope everything has gone well for you both today.
Fingers crossed for your wifi Sluggie. I'm happy enough without TV but I would not be happy with WiFi at home (not so bothered when we are in the caravan but always a bonus if we can get it).
I know this differs for each individual but does anyone have any recommendations for a female friendly bike saddle? I don't have problems with my bottom, it's more the lady garden area where I get too much pressure
