Last out first in. Don't worry I did last wee duty and turned the lights out.
In response to the comments that people post when times aren't so good and disappear when life is going well. There have indeed been some classic examples of this over the years and in many respects I don't disagree. Sometimes though life just changes. I think I've been a fairly loyal WAISTER over the years but I've gone from working 25 hrs a week with healthy parents and a very home based life to busy full time job, a more dependent mum and I'm out 3 or 4 nights a week. If I'm lucky I'll see bird once a week and I have all but stopped Buddhist things as its a 1. 30 hr round trip cos they moved. So I can't say life is better but is definitely busier and I have to use my phone to post. And anyway, my life is hardly exciting so not much to share x
Sorry I've been gone so long. I pop in and suddenly 2 weeks have passed
I have read back.
Good that you've finally taken WAISTER advice and seen the quack, DL. However you were delirious as you entered a half mara with Spence. Good news on FC she's still a teen so they know everything. Whoda thought that DL could provide stability and normality to a troubled teen- well anyone for that matter
Blimey... least I've not been absent as long as Chuggy. I will of course accept the exceptional circumstances with hoards of visitors and double old age pensioners
Podds, Good to hear the vet meets with your approval - with your understanding of medical stuff they have to know their onions. I had no idea NV was so mature. Time does fly sadly. Love the colour run pics . Poor Mr P missing swimming...
Sluggy, happy to hear SM is more settled. Fingers crossed it stays that way. Hope you find the right flat for you, MS and the felines. The cat cafe???
Hope you're feeling better, MC. Must be half term if you're ill; -)
Head hunted you say, Daffy? Doesn't seem that long since you were Daffy the perennial student and now you've morphed into Dr Daffs fountain of wisdom and much sought after
Welcome back, Spence. I don't recognise the unpleasantness you talk of but I don't venture outside the lounge. Fab running
Far far, how is Mr Ned getting on these days?
M.... eldy, nice running from you, too
Pippi, lol at your basketball rules. Bet the kids loved it
Life here is uneventful but busy. Ma's eyesight has deteriorated n hozzie changed meds. Went out with her, aunt n boys today for lunch and mum had to use a torch to read the menu (the light in the room was fine) and I had to guide her walking through. No 1 hasn't found work even macD turned him down. He's only crime is to lack confidence. Breaks my heart a little. No 2 has been offered a scholarship by the London institute of finance and banking but I'm not sure he's interested. Work is.... Anyhoo, I've entered the Benfleet 15. It's 15 miles off road half of which are over the Olympic MTB area ( not round the track) It is hilly and muddy. It has a reputation... ::-O
Wow, Podds. You are doing very well dealing with work stuff so constructively. And did you say you're up for iron man again? I agree with Sluggy regarding less work leaves room for more RGT work although those sweet houndie love you for it.
Sue, I love the sound of you being batty Are you being sponsored for your Scarfell jaunt?
M.......... eldy, bats are good fliers but roost in woodpecker holes, loose tree bark and they also roost in the ground.
Sluggy, it is a shame some cats are particularly predatory but it's nature I suppose. How is SB these days?
((((MC))) hope you're feeling better
(((DL)))) hope you're well enough to run again soon
Daffy, what happened to you? Those poor students
Not much doing here. Charidee run and 10 mile race went well. Ma more settled. My neighbour has organised the local talking newspaper for her.
Is it bed time?
Apologies for dropping of the radar. Still having to prize my laptop out of miniyums no 2 grubby mitts
oh DL, I had a good old snigger too at FC's alarm cock. Very alarming indeed to keep being woken by it hy is FC grounded for a month ?
Well iron manned M.....eldy and sherpa Podds. It sounded tough especially for Podds having to drink cocktails and other alcofrolic beverages whilst all m....eldy did was have a gentle dip in the sea, little jaunt on her bike and a pottle along the prom. As for standing on the GPO ? seriously?
Sue what sort of neddy has your family acquired? How did the visit to the poochee rehoming place go? How is HWMBT?
Sluggy, i'm glad that SM seems to be more settled at the moment. Not easy times for BFF and TM. How are their loved ones? I giggled when I pictured you signing at volume and then MS face
Daffy, well done on signing up for the harf mara and for the pb challenge. I think you should terrify your students.
Sorry to hear about the gerbil, MC. Ive not had degus although i had a very long lived chinchilla. Bliddy rodents chew everything. Why not ask DL for one of her mice?
Pippi, that's a pretty interesting after school event. The kids will be disappointed next week if you don't send for the fire brigade.
Welcom Tub - look after those knees. Lots of advice out there on how to look after knees both rolling/stretching/strengthening but essential to build slowly.
Farfar, how lovely you have a new to you campervan and even more lovely that Ned loved it too
good luck with the meeting, podds - remember grow up and learn self control
Life here is busy. No 1 still looking for work. Tomorrow im taking time off work to take him to discuss volunteering with the local hospice. Do you remember all those years ago when the GPo came home with a dead bat and we wondered whether he caught it or found it. Well, my very informative bat walk said that cats are the major predators of bats. Loved the walk saw pipistrelles and soprano pipistrelles and picked up noctule bats on the bat detectors. This weekend is the MIND club run which Im helping organise. only half full and despite me asking no marshal instructions or much at all. Ma not as good. Her eyesight failing and she's worried about losing her independence so I'm a little more involved with hozzie and RNIB at the mo.
