Podds, I wouldn't have taken you for a dimwit or a glutton but............. Goodness I haven't had that combo of beans on toast for years.
Sluggy, I can understand MIL's reasoning regarding your back. It depends on what needs doing I suppose.
Noggys knee knows nowt! Sounds like you will be supercharged when it does become knowledgeable. Hope the painkillers have kicked in (pun intended).
Chuggy, I haven't been canoeing for ages. I do swim, walk, run, aquarun and cycle occasionally. I am doing the Great North Swim as support for Mark but I am a bit concerned that he seems to have lost his spark at the moment and hasn't really done very much training for it at all.
Pippi, fingers crossed that all is well with Mr P and he is home tomorrow. Sounds like he is progressing well.
DL has obviously been abducted and an imposter put in her place!
Had a pleasant walk with the dogs today. Evie still does well for a 17 year old dog. Managed fractionally short of 6 miles. Shame the weather cooled off and started trying to rain (it succeeded this evening).
Park run in the morning and then FP jnr and myself are going to The Clothes Exchange in the afternoon.
((((((((((((((WIN))))))))))))))))))))) especially Snaily
Sluggy, hope you had a lovely meeting with TM.
Chuggy, saw your beautiful visitor on FB. Even more magical that he appeared and disappeared like something from a fairytale.(Oh and I wasn't 13th in the triathlon, I was 13th female. I was actually 66th out of 115 so very middling but I aren't disappointed with that)
Did I hear DL had been running? Twice? Running away from responsibilities? Running away with the circus?
Noggy, if one leg is shorter than the other you will have to visit somewhere with one of those racks that were used as torture in days of yore or just go for a little stretch!
Podds, photos are gorgeous. Sounds like my type of holiday. I can't abide the type of holiday where you sit around a pool all day and drink all night. I have to be doing or seeing things. Thankfully OH is like-minded.
Right, I had better get ready for aquarunning and swimming. The weather has been gorgeous today so have done about 2.5 hours of gardening this afternoon. I was stuck in the nursery playcentre this morning and we only one child through the door. I hope they do better this afternoon.
Sorry to be in so late. (Note will be on Meldy's desk in the morning).
So sorry to hear about your mum Snaily. Sounds like your coping mechanisms have cranked up to maximum power. (((((Snaily))))) Do take care of yourself.
Skippy, sorry to hear about your loss too and having to be executor is quite a responsibility too.
(((((((For all those in need))))))
Slugs, what a bummer about the car. Hope it's sorted quickly. Good on SB for visiting the older oldies.
Not too much going on here at the moment. Did the park run in a really good time yesterday (27.09). It's been months and months since I got below 28 mins and the last two weeks I have, just but I seemed to get a whizz on yesterday. Did a little triathlon on Easter Sunday and it took them 11 days to get the results out! I was 66th out of 115 and 13th female.
I'd better go to bed as I have work in the morning (alarm goes off at 5.45am!!!). Been watching Burlesque.
Aww, Chuggy, so sorry to hear that we will miss each other again. We are staying in the De Doelen (Ithink that's what it's called).
Fantastic pedalling Podds. I couldn't do 112 miles in three days at the moment.
Hope all goes well on Wednesday Sluggie. What exactly are you having done?
Yums, can I ask why your Buddhist teacher was texting you at 2am?
I see from FB that XB has been fairly local to me at Saltaire and Bingley Five Rise Locks (Leeds Liverpool canal).
We've had a lovely day The weather has been fantastic this last couple of days. This morning we picked up a couple of friends and went to a car boot sale. We drove over Ilkley Moor in glorious sunshine but down in the valleys there was a thick white mist. Then we came back to ours and I made an impromptu buffet lunch and we had an Easter Egg hunt in the garden. To say there wasn't a child amongst us there was a very competitive hunt between four of us We finished off with a walk around Oakwell Hall (which was featured in 'Shirley' by Charlotte Bronte) with the dogs.
Well done Yums on the amazing gymnastics and the running.
Aww what a lucky ickle mouse DL. Shame the bird didn't get off with the same fate.
Well Triathlon done and dusted. Swim, I was the last out of my wave but they do organise it so the faster swimmers are in the early waves. Having said that I did it in 7.27 (10 seconds faster than last year). Out to the bike, huffed and puffed up the road and then whilst sailing down the hill I realised I hadn't started my Garmin! Racked the bike and thought my legs wouldn't carry me but I persevered. Walked a couple of hills but only so that cramp didn't set in (that's my excuse anyway). I believe I may have done it in around the same time as last year overall. Not bad since I have only been on the bike twice this year.
